35k is way over priced. Spend 5k on car and 15k on the v8 engine/trans and mods to install and 5k on other mods and you save 10k. And that is being generous. Used to see lots of engines swaps into miatas and hondas and they never cost anywhere near this much. Gas mileage would suck for sure. But it would be hella fun to drive and show. But for 35k there are alot of really nice cars you could get or almost get.
