What Cars Are You Thinking About?

5 posts in this topic

A few days ago, I started daydreaming about what I would want to build after finishing the Nova. (I figure that I will have several more years to save and plan.) I ended up thinking about something completely out of the norm of my style and have been daydreaming about a Pro-Touring 2nd gen Camaro (preferably 70-73 or a 78-81) with a large cubic inch, fuel-injected, Procharged LS and a six-speed.

What cars have yall been daydreaming about other than those you already own or are working on?

Daydreaming??   Touring the country with a family of 8 in either a $300,000 RV or an old converted school bus powered by a 6BT and manual trans.

Well, I want to finish this 2010 SS up first.

I need a ZL1 or one of the aftermarket rear diffs with axles.

Solid cradle bushings.

DR's or Slicks for the back at least and not sure if I'll do skinnies.

If I can't get the V-bands welded on, I will go to 2in primary to 3in collector Kooks Jet Hot Lt's and see if that solves the cylinder imbalance.

When the near new brakes I have on now wear out, I will put the 6 piston Brembo's on the front I got from @Mike and that will give me the same brake setup as a ZL1 / CTSV. Of course they'll be sent off for new powder coating as well.

Then, if I get bored with the 760 rwhp, I'll start looking at forged shortblocks + head studs so I can turn the boost up and start using the ProCharger D1X to it's full potential at over 1,000 rwhp. 

For the next hotrod, I'd like either a super low mile 5th Gen ZL1 or 6th Gen ZL1. If it is a 6th Gen, I want the 1LE with auto trans. :D

I keep thinking about a Chevy 454 SS with a very stock looking 502 under the hood.  1st generation Ford Lightnings are 2nd on my truck list.  Oddly enough, a late model Hemi swapped into a mid/late 90s Ram shortbed is 3rd on my truck list.  Oldsmobiles really catch my attention too.  Muscle era 442's and mid 80's Cutlass (Hurst/442) specifically.  Other cars on my list aren't hot rods.  I am on an Underappreciated Survivors page on Facebook.  People post pictures of hated/unloved cars in good to excellent shape.  I find myself lusting after early 90s Chrysler Imperials as well as other Chrysler K based cars and Volvo station wagons in stock condition.  I also would love an SRT-4 swapped Omni GLH.  I am thinking about finding the drivetrain from a wrecked late model 392 Hemi powered Challenger/Charger and trying to get it to work in my 1980 Dodge D150.

My grandparents had an early 90's Dodge Dynasty.  That thing rode and drove like a dream.  That was when I was running around with Mark D. and his Mopars.  I kept thinking a turbo 2.2 swap in that car would be a blast.

A buddy of mine and Ashley's acquired a nice 454 SS, last year.
