    Too cool. Back in the 70s, hot rodders would replace the 4 cyl in the Chevy Vega with a small block V8 and sometimes big blocks.
    In either case, they would find that their doors wouldn't open after driving the V8 Vega for a bit. The torque of the V8 engine actually
    twisted the frame, jamming the doors shut.
