what do you want for your car?

im just wondering what other people want for the end result for their cars?

such as a full out race car? a mild mannered auto-crosser?

all out show car?



i'll start... i want my car to a wonderful weekend car, that is to be a very fun project for the new wife and i, and to also eventually get a full magazine feature, i got a small excerpt as some people have seen in modified mag... but i am talking about a full feature...

i plan on keeping this car, after we get a house, garaged kept until at least my new baby is atleast 16... the baby is due in late january in 09.


so whats everyone elses end result for their car? list mods and such if you want to!

I want to keep it streetable but fully built for NA eventually. Its gonna be a LONG process and probably wont be a DD in the end but thats ok. Fully built motor, SVT brakes, suspension pretty much as is right now, etc. Although it will be a while. A house is a current priority.

i want my car to run on pee, so i can pee in the gas tank and drive for miles and miles with an unlimited free power supply (my pee).

Another thing I want is my car to be bubble wrapped so I don't have to pay car insurance no more.

A plus, if the car could float so i can avoid LA traffic.
