I'm totally getting a 68 or 69 gto or a 70-72 Monte Carlo. I need something I can redue and take to good guys, none of my current cars are old enough for that show.

Awesome! A 70 charger was the first car I put full quarters on. That's a lot of car. What color u doing it up in?

its funny looking at my post from almost 2 years ago lol.

Now realistically im looking for a 240sx and swapping an sr20 into and maybe in the future going with an rb25. I would love to learn how to drift and there's a club that goes to a track about 15 minutes from my house that has open registration as long as your car passes inspection so hopefully when i finish college that's my plan

I was a huge Fbody fan back in the day, until the new style Mustang came out. I never really liked the way they felt before. I just always found the seating position, where the gear shift was located, etc, more comfy in the GM area. Now it's reversed. I don't like the new Fbody, but I love the new Mustangs. Odd, because between me and the wife, we've had 4 Fbodies. Oh well. I'm happy. :-)

For what I've always wanted to build...

Since it came out, I've lusted over that thing like no other. I just don't have the time or the finances to complete it, but in a decade or so, I'll build it!

The next thing I will build will either be a jeep, or another baja bug. but this time class 5 specs, and a water cooled motor of some sort... baja was my first car, and had another that I sold to buy the stang... 67,and a 61.... Most likely a Jeep. Definately going up with it whatever it is..

I would get a LS3 GrandSport Vette and make it into a complete road racing car. Completely gutted, Penske triple-adj. shocks, complete aero setup (wing, splitter, undertray, vented hood, carbon fiber body parts), lexan windows, dry sump, good solid cage and go race.

That alone could get well over $100k so it's almost not realistic for me... maybe someday. Otherwise, I would also like to find a good 66 Chevelle and fix it up nice for my dad as I know that was his favorite car growing up. Would be cool to give something back to him.

Seeing that I made this thread like 2 years ago makes me laugh. My tastes have changed so much. Now I'm on to European cars like Lotus, BMW, and Audi. And I still want to have me a Coyote 5.0!

I have thought about a four banger..whether its an n/a high revving thing or turbocharged. Maybe a newer civic si or S2000 but the thing is those types of vehicles would almost have to be small in size and weight. I personally like a little bit of a bigger car than that so maybe a turbo V6 Accord/TL.
