late 60's or early 70's chevy nova, or a chevelle. Lots of horsepower and make it look very clean. I would sit in my garage for hours waxing it, then drive the crap out of it. Probroly lose my licence within a few days of finishing it.

Wow. Where should I start.

I'd like to get a 67 MGB and fully restore it... not original: new electrical system; small V6; chromed spoked wheels w/ knock-off hubs; British racing green (although my original was red). My first car was a 67 MGB. It's been on my mind ever since.

1958 Buick Riviera... the king of chrome.

My father's 55 Chevy is very close to being finished, otherwise I'd include one in my list. If it is worth half of what he's put into it, it will be stunning.

The rest of my list have wings: Cessna 195; Grumman Goose; Christen Eagle; North American Mustang; and I could go on and on and on.

I would build a car with a 2000 CID V-12 make the car look like a bullet. Then Paint the tip red the body copper and get sponsored by Hornady and a few other places. Then Take it to the salt and run it like I stole it. Trying to break 500 mph with a piston driven car.

I would need to develop Pure Carbon fiber pistons and use a few big ass huffers. No nitrous for me you nitrous guys are just losers who can't build an engine.

Something like this.

Ugo Fadini LSR Models - Al Teague's streamliner, the story

or this.

Always wanted an early '70's Beetle with an LS1 out of a camaro, but with all wheel drive & a chop of about 2" at the A pillar (might lose that back seat).
