Default What other car would you build?

Just like the title says, what car, other than a mustang(including cobras), would you build up? I just wonder how many of you are closet camaro nut huggers. just playin'! I think if it were me, it would probably be a Toyota supra, Nissan skyline, an LS7 swapped RX7, or an Evo IX.

What about you guys?

I would love to build a 4th gen Supra, I'm even partial to some 3rd gen ones. I also like late 90's body style Taurus SHO's with the Yamaha sourced V8..even if it is FWD lol. Another option would be a Subaru WRX.

Edit: Add 2003-2007 F-250 6.0 Powerstroke to list.

I like the Z06 choice.
But if id was going to pick a Corvette it would have to be a 53 or a 63 Split

Evo 8 or 9 or STI. If I had the money to have a 2nd car it would without a doubt be AWD. Having trouble putting power to the ground can get annoying! A friend of mine has a 450WHP evo and it is fun as hell to ride in.

the split window was onlt 63 so you would probably spend more on one of those than a Gallardo.


i would love to build up a 69 Cougar Eliminator.
