I got to go for a world rally car, this one below is made 3 miles from where a live.
oh noes!!! NFS:U2 cars are goin up now? Gotta represent my garage... lemme take some screencaps and post (beat the game the other day, so I have everything unlocked).
here's the rally car:
Here's the race car:
here's the exotic wanna-be:
and here's the CLK-DTM imposter:
gotta love that skyline... you can't even see any tire on those wheels. Talk about rubber bands
Pretty nice... now for some real cars...
I've always thought these look like fun
This is nice too (even if it does appaear to have the headlights from a fiat punto lol)
MG XPower SV
I like my car. Especially it's ability to destroy rice rockets.
JRS thats an awesome car
We need more cars like that in this country (even if they are probably very thirsty lol)
She's not that thirsty, I can usually get 22 mpg if I'm being careful. Admittedly that drops to about 15 if I start using the revs more, but revs aren't something that car needs to go quickly.
Look! The hand-polished body of the Shelby GR-1 concept car sparkling under the lights at the auto show in Detroit. The vehicle is based on Ford’s GT supercar and is powered by 605-horsepower V10.
What engine's under there JRS?
How did you find it (i'm guessing its american) in the UK
AJ²06 - I wish you hadn't put that pic in. I want one now
Currently only running a baby 5 litre (307ci) V8 w/ 4 barrel carb. Will be pulling that in the summer probably, if I have the money to put my current plan into effect - 350ci (5.7litre) motor with some choice modifications.
No, "brave" is my other plan involving a 454ci Chevy motor.....
in that case, with some minor modifications i beleieve that you could fit a Jaguar V12 in it
That would give the ricers something to think about lol
Imho, you should keep the outside looking as stock as possible (maybe firm up the suspension and get some lightweight wheels or something) but most people (ie ricers) wouldnt expect it to go as fast as i'm sure it does with all that power under it
Hehehe... that would be great. Sleeper car.
I think using "minor" is the understatement of the year
Right now Ive got a 1971 Chevy c-10 350ci 5.7litre V8. It moves like a bitch because the previous owner cut off a few "excess" parts and welded on some lightweight replacements. And it still gets 18mpg tops! I'll post some pics tomorrow. Still have to fix the alternator support....
Damnit - i meant from a 454ci Chevy engine to a Jag V12
Do you have to change any transmission parts or strengthen the chassis to handle all that torque from a 5.7 litre engine?
For your's or for mine? I think the 5.7litre V8 was stock back in '71 for my model, but Im not to sure because the previous owner might have replaced it with a newer Chevy 350. I havn't looked at the engine number yet to find out.
BTW, what type of wagon is that. It almost looks like a Lincoln-type wagon.
