Default My Dream Ride...

Now I know a few of you think I'm a dreamer and all that, and Haro is like the dang ring leader of that group But leave me alone, I just thought it would be cool to dream up a cool car...not to be specific or anything but yeah.

So what this thread is...is I want you guys to take a stock car...whatever car that may be, and just say what you would do with it to make it JUST right for YOU. Now it doesn't have to be your favorite car ever and you are welcome to post again with an idea for a different car to see how far you work off with the original idea....

Haha, yeah I know this thread will probably bomb, but we'll see.... I'll post my idea later.

Actually, I quite like this topic...

I'm assuming this is for all cars besides Bonnevilles, right?



So then let'* start with a '00+ Cadillac STS.
....
And then turn it into this:




Done

Also please be pretty specific if possble, like what exactly you want in it, what color, and what you estimate the 1/4 might be after you have it fully customized. Just an idea.

I LOVE it!

My dream car would be to take a 92-95 styled SSEi and modernize it better than the 96-99, and have a Series 4 3800 supercharged, but with at least 300 hp (prefferably higher) and a 4t80-like transmission with a 5 speed that can ether be automatic or manual with those push button shifters. It would also be RWD. Probably a quarter mile of 11 seconds and less. It would also have the highest quality build so you wont have to reach under the dash to change out those damn air mix actuators anymore while all of the other maintinence components are easy to fix and maintain. It would also come in red with black interior.

So basically my dream car is what I already got but better. :P I dont think about dream cars often because im already driving one.

Honestly...

Black Chrysler Conquest TSi w/ black leather interior. Lowered a tiny bit but not much; Corvette c6 z06 engine/tranny/rearend, CAI, headers, dual exhaust to twin flowmasters. My God, that car would be amazing to me.

Mid-eighties Malibu four-door, battle-ship grey, with the uglier waterfall grille. Lingenfelter TT LS7, dialed back to only about 850hp, instead of their usual 1000hp. Mate that to a built-up 6L80E from the STS-V, with the paddle shift.
Full interior, dark grey, full guage cluster, no pillar-pods, 10-point cage, AL7s with adjustable cage-braces, and 5-point harnesses, front and back, so they're NHRA-legal.
