I wouldn't know for sure, but to mention a Ferrari, the 1983 Ferrari 308 GTB would probably be a performance choice.

I caught one doing 100mph on the roadway and he couldn't keep up with me anywhere over 125mph... Even though it's a "slow" Ferrari, it's still a Ferrari. Must have been fast when it was produced, of course.

Sick....1981 Red Jeep Grand Waganeer.

My parents used to have two of these cars but my Dad and older sister managed to total both of them only a month apart.





Wood paneling..........It very Clark Griswold!!!!!!



...One problem: mechanically they suck. You would want to rebuild the engine even if you could find one with under 50k miles on it...

If I was born a year later I would have chosen the lotus elan...Awesome car. It's too bad it failed because it really did have potential.

when it failed, KIA motors bought the rights and everything else, and put in one of their own 1.8 litre lump and turned it into one bigger failure!!!

EDIT: After looking up the cugnot on wikipedia, it turns out that pic is an animation of the first automobile accident--the same one that lead the French to stop making mechanical vehicles lol.

If only everyone in the world was as big an idiot as you, then you might have people that agree with you sometimes.

A civic with a Ferrari engine, a GOOD Ferrari engine, would be badass/amazing/awesome... You get the idea

The Ferrari with a Civic engine would be ****in' stupid and I wouldn't buy one if they were selling it for nickels.
