67 Corvette
69 GTO
One proper old Ferrari(V12 with lots of carburators,in the front of the car-not too picky beyond that)

At the current rate I will probably be distracted again by a 240Z soon(always wanted one)and for some reason I'm just a sucker for ElCaminos that need a better home.

While your tossing around ideas, how about you loft some of that fortune over my way?

I drive an 02 VW GTI 1.8T, not modded much.

However the real story is in the cars I owned before I had to grow up.

I had three 4th gen camaros, the last of them being the one attached, it ran the 1/4 at [email protected] with a slipping clutch. I bought a house so that car had to go

I also had a Lifted YJ jeep on 33" tires locked front and rear, I used it to trail guide intermediate and advanced groups at Paragon and Rausch Creek here in PA.

The car I miss most of all that I unfortunatly have no digital pics of was a 1974 corvette conv. Red with black gut. 4spd, had 57k miles on it and the original tires.

That "Piece of crap" can really rake in the dough if it is restored correctly.

70' VG Valiant Coupe (think 69 Dart)

265ci HEMI, extractors, 2.5" single exhaust, 4bbl 500cfm Edelbrock carb, aftermarket manifold, Gilmur Drive (tooth belt), HP Ignition, double row timing chain.

I can't think of any other engine mods. This thing goes pretty hard though (good power/weight ratio)
