Since you said you were bored with the last one, whats to say it won't happen again. I'm gonna be the devils advicate here and suggest something waaaay different. All you ford fanatics, just take a breath.. its ok to like more than ford. Here we go. Find a 1988 pontiac fiero and drop a gm 3.6 liter supercharged engine into it (pontiac grand prix gtp engine). The car already has incredible handling, it just lacks power. The car can cost up to 3 grand, the engine installation is about 4 grand. Other mods (rims, resto, tires) probably cost around 3 grand. You'll have a unique american car that can out turn, accelerate and brake most corvettes, camaro's, mustangs, and imports annnnnnd you'll get the "holy sh*t" looks and comments.

See pics below for inspiration.

Flamers, FLAME ON!

It really doesn't look that bad but I don't think it would be worth the money, plus you would get no street cred.

I don't think you would need street cred. With that engine swap, the 1/4 e.t. drops to anywhere from 11.78 to 12.5. Check it out on car domain.
