    So this is totally hypothetical, but if gas was $.99/gal and parts cost as much as a 1991 Cavalier, what is the one car you would want to drive for the rest of your life? Keep in mind you can't sell it, you can't trade it, you can't have any other car, only that one car. Swaps I'm down with, and you can paint it, and mod it all you want. What would it be?
    Mine would be a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air. A little cliche i know, but it would be a 2 Door hard top, 427 swap, 5 spd tranny. All original interior, black leather bench seats, Navy with a gold flake, gold trim, big 5 Spoke Craiger style rims, Cd player tucked away, not in the dash.

    of all the cars out there you pick a civic:confused:

    I'm going to go with ahhvtec and pick the F-50. I salivated over that car as a little kid and I still do today.

    I'd either go with the 09 skyline GTR, wait for parts to come flowing out for it like parts are now for civic's.

    or. 97 Nissan Hardbody with a Rb25 swap, Greddy turbo, bored 60 over, Hydro dropped with 20"s, full suspension, and a complete custom square tubeing chasis, cut top about 2"s. and a Sound system that sounds like thunder when it hits. While the windows are up.

    This entire thread is a repost of an older thread, with just about the same responses and pictures. WTF ?

    Mine would be a 1973 Formula 400, or a 1969 Boss 429, athletic white.

    E: the R8 isn't nearly as fun of a car as you think.
