I'm convincing Eagle, my dad, to start a project car with me. I went with the basic suggestion of a fox body, and with his memories of his Capri, he said its too boring, basic, and easy.

That being said, what suggestions for a project car do you guys have for us?

To one last project before college!

Get a 240 that maybe already has a swap but is being sold because the owner doesn't want to finish it. Maybe needs wiring or a few parts, etc.

Or get a Honda and an eBay turbo kit. Cheap but a hell of a lot of fun.

High mileage fbody is an obvious choice.

1g eclipse or talon would be tits.

Sup, Casey.

What do you want to get out of the car? Weekend cruiser? Handling? Pin-you-in-the-seat acceleration?

Also, not sure if you're willing to share or not, but what kind of budget? That will help alot.

Not exactly looking for a drag car just something faster and louder than the 330. Not exactly a challenging task, but definitely a speed based car.

Pretty small budget unless I end up selling the bmw.

Probably staying under $5,000.

Under 5k...alright. I say find someone dumping off a 1g. Problem is going to be finding one with a decent body.

Maybe a lt1 camaro?

Buy the rx7 and 5.3 being sold on here.


Or buy a k5 blazer and make your father envious.

T56 is going to take up some budget. I don't know how easily a t5 could be adapted but they're dirt cheap in comparison and a light car like that would probably be fine.

Don't do it. It's a trap.
