After selling my el falcon, I have decided I would like a new (or old) project car. I want to spend about $20,000 but would probably go to $30,000 if I had to, I just don't know what car. I want something a little different, a 6cyl, V8, turbo or supercharger would tickle my fancy, I just don't want it in a car you see everyday.
If anyone has any thoughts or pics feel free to share, something old school would be cool.
one of the few cars you'll get your money back on is a hot rod. i spend alot of time thinking about same thing my main problem is i like xw-xc but in all reality are old rusty heaps of you know what (don't freak everybody i own an xb and have owned old fords forever) .what i like about hot rods is new box steel chasy and fiberglass body and if you look around a bit you will be able to build a NEW old car for 30g.
I have thought about a mustang, an xc and a capri, (old school capri), but I haven't thought about a hot rod, thats definitely something to look into. where would I find more info on this, where to purchase and so forth?
Go to www.westfield-sportscars.com.au and check out the cars there, ive been in the green car before, and it is awesome!, that has a naturally aspirated japanese engine (i forget what exactly), a recently built car has a turbocharged S14 silvia engine fitted, and that looks to be a ripper. I've been told that the complete chassis retails for about $10,000, and it weighs about 600kg when completed, depending on the driveline choice.
Also, the owners of westfield sports cars also own Replica Motor Company, which make a cobra kit cars, one of which i was a passenger in on the same day as the westfield, and i liked them both very much. i'd recommend one of these cars
so many kit cars atm you'd have fun deciding on which one to do.
cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!
