    If the windscreen is the only reason for not widening the car the solution is easy.
    Cut the original down the middle and put an infill from any other suitable windscreen with 2 very thin splits down the windscreen. If the splits are in chrome they would be barely noticeable.
    Sometimes the simplest solutions are staring you in the face and in this case it always would be.

    I think Chuck is right and we need to keep feeding John ideas until one of them sticks.

    Hoo-boy, wanna have some fun? Google "bubble roof cars" and check out what comes up. I found a couple of excellent candidates for John to ponder:

    Or maybe a nice convertible mod will tickle John's fancy:

    Actually, with the windshield being smooth down the center, cut TWO windshields off center by 1/2 of the total width increase wanted, smooth those longer pieces and GLUE them together. Because your eyes are focused at a distance, the joint is almost invisible! A lot of hot rods due this (in reverse) so a wider, but "better" shaped windshield can be used on an earlier, narrow car.

    Great ideas there guy's. We will figure out a way to get one of those coyote motors to fit comfortably in there, one way or another. If I was to do it all over again, I sure would consider it.
