Mine would be a Porsche 911 "Ruffe", turbo with top end well over 200 MPH! These are hand built by "Ruffe" based upon Posche'* top end model. It was the fastest "production" car out a couple of years ago.

It'* gotta be a Lingenfelter twin turbo 427 Corvette. http://www.lingenfelter.com/pac725ttls1y.asp Gotta get the body kit for it as well. http://www.lingenfelter.com/pacbodyc5.asp Just imagine what you could do with a 427 CID, 725 BHP / 650 lbs-ft of torque!

One will never do, Need some old iron Dodge charger hemi 1969, GTO all were good, and for newer power Lamborghini, like the Bonneville they are far from there potential when purchased so I figure any lamb would work for a project. LOL

TY

Kurt GTP,

Did you know that the '87 Grand National was the fastest domestic production vehicle for that year? It beat out the Corvette hands down! (It was actually manufactured in Canada but marketed as a US domestic).

Yea, an '87 Grand National would be a great car, then there is the '69 GTO Judge with Ram Air IV, or the '69-70 Grand Prix with the 428 HO or the 455 HO, any of the E Type Jaguars (but you better have two, one for the repair shop and one for the road), and then there are any of the 1998-2002 Trans Am'* with the Ram Air WS6 package, or the '04 GTO from down under (better have a retro look to it, maybe a Ram Air hood and a hood mounted tachometer), then there is the '97 GMC Yukon GT, and of course there is the..........., but I digress.

In reality there are too many to list, however, I am very satisfied with my '95 Supercharged Bonneville SE!

for me, i would have to say a '57-64 convertible Bonneville. Then next on my list would be a '96 Camaro...or just any newer one...(I had to make it a point to say '96 so blk_bonneville would know i am talking about his!!) :P

My latest idea has got you ALL beat now!
How about a TWIN SuperCharged NorthStar 4.6L in a 92 Bonneville SE (My Car)!
seriously, I've been talking to a guy that has already started building a SuperCharged NorthStar 4.6L. http://web2.iadfw.net/nunnally/sts/n...percharger.htm I sent him an E-Mail & he responded immediately. He gave some contacts & advice that will work out great. In short, I can build a NorthStar 4.6L that will anywhere upto 1200 HP if I want to! Now there is some other codsiderations to think about before doing this though....like actual space in the engine bay for starters. I plan on a raised hood, twin custom radiators & a modified firewall complete with beefed up frame. I still plan on keeping it FWD with the 4T80-E Trans. I got the idea from a car model I've built of a Lincoln Mark VII.

An M5. You've gotta love a luxury sedan that will run neck and neck with a C5.

I'd love a GN, though. Actually, scratch that and just give me its cousin the '89 TTA.

Add a Dodge Challenger R/T and a Shelby GT500 and I think I would be in heaven.

And then a C5 coupe w/ a 427 to play with, of course!
