    I'm just a plan ol' guy :p

    If I had to choose then I would say a rapter (the dinosaur). Fast, free, and very durable. Just watch out for the claws and the whole eating you alive thing.

    corvettes run circles around the mustangs, just watch lemans races, the mustang always comes in last and the corvette always wins. the new mustangs looks nothing like the old sweet ass boss models. and the focus is junk, it had like 2 million recalls when it came out...

    hawkburn Yup...

    I think I will have to say Ford, they last the longest and are the most reliable, but Honda are a close second in my book.

    I have a '93 ford t-bird super coupe that I added an intake and exhaust to, increased the fuel injector size, had the timing advanced and a budy of mine cnc port the charger so it runs at 15psi. and, it beats the pants off of every stock corvette z06 on the streets and most other non nos street legal machiens as well.

    so, even with expensive parts and child engineers, Im a ford owner all the way.

    Hey gorphon, I kenw there was a reason we got along. Right now I am rebuilding a 81 F100 as a street rod. the 4.2 engine is finally done. It cost $860 just to do the heads. Just a toy to haul a wee bit of beer home. the problem is it isnt very good in the snow.

    too much low end torque for use in the snow? Im just guessing as that is the problem I have with my ride... only, I have it in the rain. it spins the tires through 3rd gear in a heavy rain and IF I am foolish enough to let it.

    damn...$860 for new heads, that is steep. IMHO thats the one thing chevy has in its favor... for a grand or so you can have a screaming rebuilt chevy motor because the parts are all over the place.

    but yeah, I took a look at an '84 f150 xlt awhile back. no rust, engine needed some work but you know how that goes.... I had plans to make it a backcountry mudbuster but ended up scrapping the project until I could actually afford it....

    what Id really love to do is get my hands on an original 1952 F1 (w/ the vertical grille) and turn that into a street rod... or, since some of the later 50's models have nicer body style, just use a 55 to 59 F1 with the '52 grille. but man, I'll have to hold off on that one until I am very rich. those things, and restoration and modification, just dont come cheap....I checked at a place here in town. the average restoration of an older model vehicle? $50,000.

    truly sickening. but if I had it... man, I would love that ride.

    edit: codename47, that has GOT to be meant as a drag bike. with the (apparent) width of both tires and the length of the wheel base I cant even conceive of driving that thing through trafiic. 0 -60 in 2.5 seconds is just about drag bike times too. does it have a centrifugal clutch?

    My friends thought I was nuts for messing with a small engine, they all said just dump in a 351, but i like a short stroke motor, they just pick up the revs so nice. The body is stock as of yet, and needs very little work. Now I just need to upgrade the stereo next, I have a 160watt kenwood, but i want to get a good mp3 player, and sub next. Can you say second childhood?

    a lot of my friends told me the same thing.... Ive got the 3.8ho engine here. but I put the blower on it and the thing just flies.... 4.2L is v-6 right? a 6cylinder that big ought to still give you plenty of torque for towing and acceleration I think. and with a little modification....
    but you can do that until you are drowning in debt, especialyl with ford.

    and yeah, Ive got the standard male disease. my car has to be as efficient and fast as possible, just like my computer. my sound system has to be the best I can afford and Ive got a garage full of power tools and drawers full of various hand tools, electrical components, car parts, and supplies.

    fun stuff! :fire

    edit: I figure there is no way its NOT a drag bike, judging by that last photo. if it is though it looks a little bit short....

    and hunter: 12 different car audiophiles will give you at least 11 different recommendations but I really like audiobahn for subs as well as mids and highs. I got all my stuff at 25 to 50% off by buying last year's pro models from this local electronics store and have had no complaints with the speakers yet. just dont get the 4 x 5's w/ built in tweeter. they kept blowing out on dire straits "Brothers in Arms". yeah, the 6x9's work much better and still give the crisp highs I was looking for...

    The tranny, is pretty much a stock C4, other than a shift kit, and a external cooler. If i have problems, it will be changed to a C6. A standard would be nice, but as I have problems with my legs it is kind of ruled out.
    Also Gorphon, it is a V8, and was commonly used in some mustangs from the US, and it is the engine that came in the truck. that is another good reason to keep it.
