Ah, this is becoming too complicated. Anyway, it should be cheap and difficult,

How difficult? You don't want to make it so difficult that it requires a team of 300 people, do you?

Nah, just something I can do all myself. I'm seriously leaning towards the d15z1 metro. I mean, 300 for the full swap, lots of welding, and I'll have a beast! (~100 for the metro)

Get an old VW Bug chassis, and build a custom custom body to it. You could make it as aero as you want then, and provided you learn how to make the body yourself and do your own work, it would be rather inexpensive.

I'm planning on using this thing to learn body work, but I'm really more interested in resto, because I'm not the type to drive something ridic odd, I'd rather just have a cut little metro with full skirts and mehbe a smoothed out shape.

In that case, either a CRX HF or a Metro would be the best choice. I'd go with the CRX.

It might not seem like it as much time as I kill on the site but I study first, and very hard.

I would just see what comes around. If you come across a nice CRX HF go with that, If you find a good Hatchie go that way. I would just wait and see to see what you find.

Best of luck.

I need more info. It's a couple year project, but what about budget, tools, etc...
Can you get your hands on a tig welder, cherry picker, etc?
