I would prefer some modded Porsches. The GT4 rocks.

Ive wanted a wide body 911 like the one above since i was a kid, so that’s on my list.
Then I’d have to say a Nissan skyline hakosuka, the original gti, just bloody beautiful
Then maybe an e type jag, stunning.
2 on my list are sorta obtainable, the last one is simply never gonn happen!!

Nice old thread someone dug up.

I almost bought myself an old Valiant Hardtop a little while ago, I had an old slant six engine and trans to go in it for now.
Although I have also gone close to buying a few cars over the years, whatever it was, it would probably be a large car, 60s or 70s Mopar, Ford or Holden and likely to have a six cylinder, because doing the same with less cylinders is more fulfilling than doing the same as everyone else with a V8. Unless of course I did something silly like an American truck V10 (Dodge or Ford) because if 8 is good, ten has to be better, right?

Datsun 240z/260z/280z with a modern Nissan turbo engine, flares, wide JDM wheels etc

Holden Monaro HK/HT/HG GTS with Chev LS3 or later. I was looking at buying one when i got my RX7. They were about 20-25k at the time and unaffordable. DEFINITELY unaffordable now.

Something like Claudes 280Z from switzerland? Have fun and hear the incredible sound. I like the racer built the car by himself.
