1995 Chevrolet Impala SS, over 210k miles and still kicking
2011 Dodge Challenger R/T, my midlife crisis present to myself
1978 Trans Am that I MIGHT have on the road next year. Key word "might"

the r/t challenger is a fucking cool car. i couldnt afford to run it though, its got a 6L v8 right? Ive seen them tested and they go like shit of a shovel. we dont really do muscle cars here in the UK, but i wish we did.

and the trans am is a very good looking car, no idea as to its performance though. i bet parts are hard to come by and are expensive.

i always look at american cars and think that there design process goes a bit like this...
years designing and building the body
5 minutes to measure the bonnet space and determine what is the biggest and loudest engine that will fit
job done

me and a friend of mine are looking to buy a cheep BMW 3 series, to turn into a track car.

should be a fun and relatively straight forward project. and will be a lot of fun when we are done with it.
