Glass half full I guess.
I have thought about that too.

Or take this engine and trans and throw it into a Miata or 944 body. Not sure if it would fit, but it would be a hell of a car.

To be completely honest even my car was in an accident back in the day. Dad put it in to a tree at about 25 mph. The right rear frame rail was fucked and repaired. To this day the right sits about .25 of an inch lower than the left and it's noticeable from knee height.

My solution: Add a cage, add sub frame connectors, solid body mounts, and build the shit out of it everywhere else.

It's just added character. Fuck em.

The LT5 being swapped in? That is news to me. I know LT1/4 and LSx's have been swapped in both, but not the LT5.

Sorry, thought you where just talking about the LS series, LT5 i'm not sure, but if an LT1 or LSX has, I don't see why not.
