Years ago one of the car mags put a huge GM engine and trans in a Chevette. I think they had to drive from the back seat area.
I always figured the most reasonable thing to so would be to use an Audi transaxle, a Kennedy adapter plate, and put the engine midships. You'd have to fabricate a rear suspension, but you'd retain the firewall, heater, wipers, dash, steering, and normal seating position. Add some wheelie bars and you might actually go somewhere instead of just sitting there making tire smoke.
They put the big Cad 500 engine in through the 2-dr Chevette's doors and like said, had to drive it pretty-much from the back seat.
