That is super awesome! Somebody bought that sucker as a hotrod. Is it fast? I have to assume it must be!

I don't know that I would call it fast hahahaha but quick maybe. It's enough to have fun for sure. I measured a 0-60 time on a cell phone without really launching it and it did it in 7 seconds. Over double what I'm used too from even 600cc bikes, but not bad for a 4500lb suv.

No title, broker is out of state, car was from out of state, it's a ball of wax.

VT did get back to me, super nice response as to what I needed to correct in my paperwork, now just waiting on a few things and I can mail back for round two.

Overall? Pretty stress free DMV experience.

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

So VT cashed the check last week, which means plate and registration are in the mail.
Insurance was added (basic liability only), and that's all valid.
Now it's a matter of getting the bent suspension links replaced, and I'm good to go!

Oh, there was another moment of weakness... Image

PantherJet pump and a 307 chevy.

It's not a marine engine, so I have a bit of work to do to get it in good shape. Plumbing the water feed to the engine, fuel, all the ignition and a bunch of other stuff.

It's not factory, but will work to prove out the hull till something else comes along.

The deal was too good to pass up.
