Here's a Perry Design (Perry D) pseudo-Spyder for sale on ebay for $15k starting bid.  Perry D uses a VW pan so engine is in rear just like a bug or Spyder.  He doesn't know it's a Perry but that's the only Spyder I know of that uses  VW pan. Sure this compromises handling a lot.  Car has a stoked 1900 cc engine (since when is a 69 mm crank stoked?).  Also supports smart "fun" - most of my fun is from dumb stuff.

That old Beck looks pretty cool. I didn't see the price but I think $25k isn't crazy if it's as presented. Cool mirrors, cool windshield, the cool backwards scoops that some of the early 550s got (I have a set of those but plan to leave them off my build). Interior isn't all that & I'd peel off the stars n bars sticker on the fan housing but other than that it looks like a good basis for discussion.
