    If you had the money, what classic car, with or without, mods would you have?

    Me, Early '70's Caddie El Dorado. I would equip it with:
    • Latest LS engine
    • Ford 9" rear-end, chopped to accomodate,
    • 305mm or larger tires, super sticky
    • Trac-bars
    • original body, and wheels
    • Likely would paint it pink, just for fun
    • Maybe even a supercharger or N.O.S.
    I think it would be pretty cool to blow the doors off of one of those rice-burning "tuner" cars.
    What would you have?

    don't know much about details but a nice straight 65 Ford Galaxy 500 2 door , British racing green , metallic with nice unpolished aluminum wheels , nice black rubber as big as practical . Big v8 , auto transmission with leather , sort of beige color . --------- remembering my parent 65 Ford car of similar configuration . I loved their 4 door , always wanted it to be a 2 door !!

    That's a sweet looking SS. Any mods? Besides the obvious- Tires, wheels, paint.

    Top three, in no real order:
    '59 Thunderbird hardtop (but in black)
    [​IMG]

    '66 Olds Toronado

    or a '63 Stingray

    No mods, just factory stock in near-showroom condition.
    They'd be driven as much as weather would permit, too - they aren't much good sitting in a garage collecting dust.

    My daily driver back in the early 70's looked exactly like this one.

    1967 Stingray
