Default Front wheel drive VS Rear wheel drive

I felt this deserves it own topic
LET THE BATTLE BEGIN .
I'm asking for everyone on this forum to forget they own the cars they do and we will compare the BIGGEST , BADDEST and FASTEST cars and will come to a conclusion on who the winner is!!!
For starts
1986 Monte Carlo SS - RWD with posi-traction (also know as a G-body)
in my opinion this car is the best car G-M ever made . Almost everybody made or makes part from interior to the motor to the suspension . The car came with 180 HP and with direct bolt on'* , I've got mine to 400+HP low 12'* on the 1/4 mile!!!
Please compare this with bolt-on '* and factory cars
NO CUSTOM MADE CAR OR SWAPPED MOTOR'*

I prefer RWD.

Where is the AWD and 4X4 option on the poll?

I personally like the old GTO'*, but the 87 Buick GN is also a favorite.
I don't think this is a fair poll question. There are too many great cars out there to really decide on the biggest and baddest. It'* like a child going in to a candy store with $1.00. What is he going to buy?

Have a sponsor from a local store in PA . Can't post pics on the SS or the Z-28 till he decides to . There is no way I could afford all the Mods myself , I'm only 19!!! I was on the Monte SS board 2 years ago at the beginning of my car restoration . I'll give you a hint It'* got a 7 stage job in Jalapeno Green And The motor'* pretty much all Holly !!! I've got a 700 tranny and 75 shot edelbrock nit ox system !

He is actually doing my cousins 95' caprice police package . So far we changed the engine to an LT-4 got 370HP on the dyno . You can buy this upgrade at www.paceperformanceparts.com for about 2000.00 . Still looking for bonneville seats for him though . That car is going to be more show than go . Trying to get PPI to sponsor him for the system , but , those guys are really busy !!!
