Sort of made me think of my cousins latest adventure, he scrapped his Dakota and will be drag racing a dodge magnum this year. I'm not totally up to snuff one what's he's doing with it class wise and such, but it's a 500 plus inch aluminum motor that'll be running on alcohol, should be fun :)
Rebuilding has begun....collecting parts for the 00' Sentra SE :)


HT is undergoing R&D(aka me being indecisive and poor/cheap:) )

look at the chasis flex!!!!!

id still rather the ultimate sleeper in the TurboVan.

and vincent, you were corrected already.

find a Turbo model Grand Caravan. throw an intercooler in it, up the boost pressure, tear out the insides a few other things and boom your 1/4 mile goes by in 12 seconds.

I've always thought that an old er style station wagon (a boxier looking one) with some nice performances upgrades, great rims, and just overall decked out to the 9's would look really sharp.

I've always wanted to get a late 70's early 80's Malibu wagon. Love them! Graft in the longer Elcamino door and rear door jamb, smooooove! GN engine. I need some time alone now.....
No. Really.

I would like one of these:

AWD, 2.2 liter I-5 Turbo massaged by Porsche. 315 hp, and capable of MUCH more. 0-60: 4.8 seconds, 168 mph top speed stock. Uses Porsche calipers, rotors, wheels, and foglights. If you're not impressed with that, I'll race you--in snow! :D

Riiiiiight. Well maybe if most of the time is spent like in the 2nd pic! I think those cars get about 25-30 highway.
