Hmmm... i would have to say i would modify:

1. 87-92 foxbody mustang lx 5.0 (HAS to be a hatchback)
GREAT aftermarket!


2. ANOTHER 87-92 foxbody mustang, except, more like a ffr mkIII roadster kit- i would use the mustang as it is the required donor car
under 2500lbs, w/ a 5.0 engine in it...... over 1G lateral grip.... and yes, it is a cobra replica

3. 85-90 camaro IROC-Z
why, yes. i would enjoy an IROC-Z to accompany my stang. t-tops or nothin!


4. 98-02 skyline GTR

5. (dont know the years, sorry) Caterham superlight R300
i would not upgrade to the R500, as the main diff is the engine HP, since i would be pulling the engine and dropping in a RX-8 rotary engine anywho

I'm glad to see a couple Datsun 510's on here. I'd probably go with:

1) 1969 Datsun 510 (built LS2 GM motor)
2) 1973 Datsun 240z (built RB26)
3) 1969 Corvette (modern suspension bits)
4) 2005 WRX STI (built motor, more boost)
5) 1995 Nissan 300ZX TT (built motor, more boost, suspension bits)

I owned a 1995 300ZX prior to my G35 and never got it to where I wanted before selling it.

I am looking for the appropriate pics but:

Rally prepared mid '60s Mini Cooper S
Road race prepared '72 BMW 2002
Trail prepared '72 IH Scout II
Road race prepared '67 TR4A IRS
Fully modernized Cobra Replica (I would not want to treat an original the way I would drive a replica)

Like someone else said before, tomorrow I might have a totally different 5, so I gave up on the photos. Imagination is better anyway.

This car was listed a couple of years ago in Germany for over $40,000.



The problem with that is that I sold it earlier that year for $18,000 to someone who flipped it to someone who flipped it to someone abroad. I guess you could say "I wish I had it now."

Here's mine. I have 2 of them. It's the only modded car I ever wanted.

2000 VW New Beetle TDI
rocket chip
MAF deleted
EGR gone, replaced with racepipe
Racing suspension/clutch
driver side dual exhaust
skidplate

I can cruise at 120mph and still get 50mpg. And the car should be good for 400k miles.

I'm assuming the muffler is on the left side of the rear of the vehicle.
