Ya'll are doing this wrong.

What you need is a car that will out last you, is a classic, sporty, undoubtly cool, and was used by a certain famous spy in a certain famous series. That's right, you need a Volvo P1800. Fuck Children (not literally, that'd make you a pedofile and you'll be locked up forever. At least you won't have to worry about what car to drive as much as dropping the soap).




But, if you must have kids, get a proper turbo brick! Though I'm more keen to the sedans...

HURRICAAAAAANE!
Actually, Canuck, instead of the Hurricane, what you really want is this:


The Mopar Jeep Lower Forty. While it is a concept, like the Hurricane; unlike the Hurricane it can be duplicated in your garage. It's basically a stock Wrangler with the bodywork removed and suspension pieces relocated to allow 40" tires to fit without lifting the truck. Oh, and because the stock V6 would never turn those big tires in anything resembling a hurry, it was removed and replaced with a 5.7 litre Hemi V8.

You can duplicate the Hurricane too, it'd just take a bit more effort. :whistle:

Feeding the addiction...



I am surprised Austere, how did you manage to overcome your "mercedes disease"? For people who are yet unaware of this, the disease has the following symptoms:
1. Talk in chassis numbers
2. Spotting different types just by seeing one tiny part
3. Utter alienation of all participants, once conversation has begun with a fellow diseased :(
4. Babbling on about quality, mechanical beauty and ingenuity.

The list goes on, but these are the main symptoms.

Okay, I've changed my mind. The one and only car I would drive for the rest of my life is this:

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport.

Of course, if I had a Veyron, the rest of my life would be quite short...
when I ran into a bridge abutment at 220 mph.

Oh, and I think Whappeh and nammedijus need to turn in their petrolhead certificates :p

R35 GT-R most likely, or a Range Rover TDi / Audi RS6. Depending if I was sensable or not.

1 - I can make a better Jeep than Chrysler can. Rubicons are overpriced.
2 - That's why God made 5.9 swaps.
Can you make a remote-disconnectable front anti-sway bar? The JK chassis is fantastic, they just put a shit motor in it.

If you were to equip a regular Wrangler to do the same thing the Rubicon can it would cost more than the difference between the Wrangler X and Wrangler Rubicon.

I made a manual one for about $6. I think I could live with it being manual.

Cost? I said better. I'd rather get a base model and make it the way I think it should be.

I would ordinarily go for an M5 estate, or a Bonkers Merc with 4 doors, but if I have to drive it for the rest of my life, I would need some offroad capability. Cause staying on roads you rwhole life is a bit of a waste isn't it? So here we go:
