Want to Get With a Starlet? Go to Las Vegas!

Ah, Las Vegas. Come for the ephemeral promise of material gain, leave with the rolling chassis of a tiny Toyota for less than your booze-addled buddy is going to blow at the strip club (“Dude, I think she really loves me! I’m going to hit the ATM again …”). Not everything that happens in Sin City needs stay there … Hit the jump for videos of several flavors of batshit mad Starlets hauling serious ass. It shouldn’t be too difficult to imagine what you could nestle into the empty engine bay of this cut-rate RWD roller, but in case you needed some ideas – how about Hayabusa power?

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYVpW9lunXg[/youtube] Hmm, need something even more insane? Dr. Solex prescribes 1200cc of rotary power.

I’m thinking 22R with the hugest junkyard turbo you can snuggle alongside it – MOAR TORQUE = MOAR AWESOME. Bonus points for doing something insane with possibly the most staid, reliable engine on the planet. Extra bonus points for the instant seal of Clunkbucket approval. You up to the challenge? Go to Las Vegas and don’t lose your $400 playing with the one-armed bandit. Or on a slot machine – HEY OH! Craigslist
