What Project?



Me and my brother have about 30000 USD to do a project in the windter.
We are thinking of all sorts and was hoping to get your input.
So far the options we are thinking are:

1)build a Caterham
2)build some American muscle car (have found a drag spec Cuda with no engine or gearbox at a tempting price)
3)FD3 Rx7 and drop a v8 in it
4)turbo E30
5)some other form of kit car
6)Do a Willys Jeep
7) 68 Camaro
8)Track spec old shape Impreza

As you see all options are open so please throw me some ideas!!!!!

I doubt my budget would reach that and i am not so technically knowledgeable to do this as the electronics would be a bitch!!!!
Would love it though!

If you want to build an american muscle car, i'd go for something with crazy power. Probably 6th generation F body. I dont know what import regulations are like for you, but you can get a 2002 trans am WS6 (LS1 vette engine + ram air) for like 10K. Them turbo the shit out of it. Its not that hard, especially since a lot of LS6 and LS9 components bolt up.

The only problem you're going to have is traction.

Oooh i know. US domestic cars are a piss to tune to silly power. My concern is that i am not a straight road kind of guy an i may regret it.
At the moment i am more inclined to a Caterham with a hayabusha engine or a two door subaru 22B lookalike.
