If You Had All You Needed.....
....What kinds of Hot Rods, Tuners, etc. would you build? And I mean specifically, what kinds of ideas have you come up with lately?
A few ideas I've had recently,
A T-Bucket with a Packard-Merlin 27liter aircraft V-12 engine.
A Black, 1971 Dodge Challenger with a blown dual carb 426 hemi. All chrome that would otherwise be on the vehicle, would be replaced with copper plating covered in a clear enamel to prevent corrosion. and a big flame/demon paint job to top it all off.
A Ford/Dodge/Chevy, F350/Ram 3500/3500HD pickup truck (duallie), with the engine replaced by a twin-supercharged 512/540 Hemi/572 big block engine, and relocated into the bed of the truck. install a heavy suspension drop, high performance wheels, tires, brakes. Independant Rear Suspension. and finish it off with a bed cap.
A Blown, LS7 DeLorean. What else is there to say?
IROC-Z Camaro with a twin-turbocharged ramjet 502 big block V-8, with engine, drivetrain, and suspension optimized for road racing.
A Dual-Engine, all wheel drive, all wheel steering, 1991 Grand am, with off-road tires, and off-road suspension. A supercharger would be equipped to each engine, after they're converted to tuned port fuel injection that is.
a completely custom designed supercar, carbon fiber frame, fiberglass body panels. powered by a 12 liter, Quad-turbocharged, Dual over Head cam, 64 valve, 16 cylinder engine; feeding into a seven speed Manumatic double overdrive transmission. (a desperate attempt to hit 300 MPH in a production automobile.)
1970 AAR Cuda, cloned. G-machine Pro Tour build.
440-500 Wedge motor w/ 150-200hp direct port nitrous injection. 500rwhp N/A.
A727 w/ Gear Vendors 6-speed planetary and low gearing, 3.55 FD. Top speed 180.5mph.
Upgraded and lightened suspension, body, brake, and assorted parts; body stiffening. 3200lb goal w/ comfort
Goals: 0-60 under 5 seconds, quarter mile under 11 seconds, skidpad 0.90g+, slalom at least 68mph.
-1968 Plymouth GTX, black on black, 5.7L Hemi w/ MDS for daily driver.
-2006 Corvette C6 Z06 w/ 800TT Lingenfelter package so I can try to peg out the built-in accelerometer.
-Lotus Exige and Caterham SuperSeven, as is.
Shelby GT350, Shelby GT500, Mustang Boss 429
-something with a 426 Hemi, something with the Chevy 427, and something with the Ford 427 Cammer
-Jeep XJ Cherokee with stroked and built 4.0 I-6 motor outputting at least 350HP. 6" longarm lift, 35" tires, 20k in offroading goodies including Klune drive, ARB bumpers, ARB in-cab lockers, hydraulic winch units back and front, external rollcage, etc.
Let's hear some other people's crazy (or not so crazy) ideas!
