Hey, you always could have started with a Lotus Europa S2! It weighs about 1100-1200lbs! But then, sticking that Detroit big block in it, well, that engine would weigh more than the car :)
But I once knew an AutoX driover from Ohio that stuck a 12A Mazda Rotary in a Europa! It was lighter than the stock Lotus Twincam, and had gobs more HP! Now imagine today, if he added an SC or Turbo to it? YIKES! And being mid engined, the weight would be more towards the rear for your better tracion too.
