Good as a place as any to post our dream cars! They don't have to be the most expensive or the most exotic. What best reflects you and your ultimate choice? :confused: ONE RULE: NO IMPORTS unless it is a Jensen Intercepter or something like that! Panterra would also count as it is Ford powered!

Pick as many as you want! I like this one! Can you say SD! Note this is a Super Duty! The last real bang! After all muscle cars lost their nads this baby ran amuck! 1974 not often thought of as a big HP year.

Kinda like a modern day Cobra.

All the original Cobras wether an AC or a Shelby, will have an id badge on the dash with an id # that can be confermed as original.
One problem is a few kit cars are out there that have stolen dash plates in them. The original cars were totaled and the plates borrwwed for foture use. The Cobra Registery has all the #'s and witch ones are counterfit.

Another is by the asking price. If it seems cheep, it's a kit. By cheep I mean 250-300k for a kit with an original 427. If it's a real one, somewhere around 750,000 depending on condition and race history.

As the proud owner on March 5, 1969, I took delivery of a Special Order 1969 Fully equipped RED/Black striped Z-28 Camaro, and just guess where my dreams venture. 104mph/11.12et in 1/4 mi. S/SJ Class with hooker headers, 4:11 rear gear street tires and 19mpg @55mph, but a new wife, job travels, and home put a stop that reality.

He should be taking delivery of it soon. I'd also like a 1940's Ford coupe that has been chopped and made into a street rod. I'd like a H2, done up right, lifted and big wheels and all full of chrome. Oh man I could go on forever here. I don't think I can pick just one.

Did anyone happen to catch Dream Car Garage's "Muscle Car Sootout". They took some, beleived to be the hottest muscle cars of the short era. A 454 SS Chevelle, AMX 390, 426 Hemi Challenger, GTO, Hurst Olds, Boss 429 Mustang, 455 Buick GS. Bone stock, original to factory specs. and raced and rated them through slalom, braking, 1/4 mile times and overall performance to get the record straight who was the king on the street. Hands down, went to the Boss 429 Mustang. Sorry Mopar fans, but the 426 Challenger was a big disappointment. The 454 Chevelle was a close 2nd but the Boss 429 ruled. Back in the early 80's i had a lot of muscle mustangs including a Boss 302 and two Shelbys. Fords were hot. Still to this day. Boy, am i going to start some controversy.

To do now, my friend has one with a cross ram intake, NICE!!!!

But I made my wife a promise that I would only have 3 cars at one time
So I need to sell one but I can’t, so I think I am going to break my promise to her

As a kid growing up, our elderly neighbors (adjacent to us) had a summer home they rarely used. In the carport sat a 1961 Chrysler 300G that went unmoved for as long as we lived next door (app 15 years).

I would often dream of them just giving me the car (if I would only ask).

It was red with a white rag top and white leather interior. Absolutely gorgeous automobile.

But it was what was under the hood that was so impressive. It had dual outlying carbeurators.

My 71 charger 440-6pk, hemi suspension, so loaded it had headlight washers. Got into an accident and the insurance company totaled the car. I bought it back and should have fixed it, but no, I had to save the engine and put all the HP in a challenger, which couldn't handle the power, and subsequently burned up in a warehouse fire.

My old man was even president of Hurst Transmission at the time! He did however loan me the $1000 for a 1973 Chevy Luv truck that I blew up 3 weeks later! :mad: By the time I was done I had converted the Chevy Luv to 4x4 and had over $3500 in it (1982 $$)!

Nice. Mine was no rock ckimber tho. I also had disks all around, full roll cage ect. The gears were 4:11, has a 12" ceramic clutch, at least when I sold it, headers and turbo muflers. It rated 425hp on the dyno. Was pretty much a handfull if you were not carefull. Was not something to drive on ice.

If I ever build another I agree that a 4.3 vortec would be a great engine choice.

Very nice work. How do you control yourself on a 6 year build. I can only think to myself I would be so done with a project like that if I knew i was going to spend that much time to do it. (Although that is my intentions with what I end up with) I just hope I can pull it off until it is done and not throw in the towel 1/2 way and go buy one already done. The 1 1/2 years it took me to build a vehicle once about killed me. What is the secret? Do you have parts all over the house? Pictures of what it SHOULD look like when complete so you keep yourself into it? What do I need to know?

The Z06 was there because the owner put 1000 miles on it and said it was too fast he was afraid of it. Traded it in on a 2006 Porsche Carrera because it is all wheel drive.

My hot-rod design friend Chris Ito, was in on the project and has been sending me updates since the project began. sligthly chopped top, raked windshield, 7" of length added to the wheel base, and a whole bunch of carbon fiber. I don't recall now if ANY of the body panels are original. Makes the already great looking Barracuda look - well even more so.

Yours or mine? Ours was a Q-Jet! I did not know of a tri power on a 400. The 66 389 had a Tri power option. 67 actually had a very few with a 421 CI. Very Rare as I am told.

This car I looked at friday, not mine or yours. I did not do a numbers run on it. But it has a tripower. 67 GTO. Why I can not explain.

Yes, in the late 80's a buddy of mine had a 2+2 with the 421, convertible none the less:eek: . It stopped running for one reason or another, (we had ALOT of cars around at the time, and fixen that one wasn't on the priority list) After sitting for a short period of time, a guy came by with (if I recall right) a 1968 GTO and wanted to trade HIS WHOLE CAR running and NICE for the ENGINE ALONE from the 2+2. My buddy didn't take it. Car sat for awhile then eventually sold it.
It's just ANOTHER one of those we wish never slipped through the cracks.....:(

Old Pontiac, 40's-60's, engines were a sight for the eyes. Intakes were sweet! 409 in my opinion was as good as it gets from Chevrolet.Yes, in the late 80's a buddy of mine had a 2+2 with the 421, convertible none the less:eek: .

All this performance was too much for General Motors and it banned racing (and thus killed the Super Duty engines) at the end of 1963

GTO's are cool but there is something about the 68 camaro that has revved me up long before the rebuild shows on tv were a twinkle in some network exec's eye

correct my rough memory but I remember looking at around a 66 lemans when I was a kid and we were told the only difference between the lemans and the goat was the badging???

A LeMans is a very easy conversion to a GTO! Hood and a few very small details is all it takes. LeMans had fins on the side not on the Goat. Goat had the hood shifter and engine package. Not much else.
What else did it need? Big HP in an A body? Nobody wanted anything else.GTO's are cool but there is something about the 68 camaro that has revved me up long before the rebuild shows on tv were a twinkle in someone's eye

I wish I knew the answer, I wish they would build a NO BS high HP car.
Did you by any chance see the 2006 Pontiac Solstice with the 7.0 and 6 speed. It weighs like 2900# with about 550hp, stopped from 60-0 in less than 100'. NOW we are talking....It's a project from Hotrod mag.
