Last gen toyota mr2 spyder with a swapped 2zz-ge... They call it the poor mans lotus elise. Body weighs 2195lbs and engine can be tuned to 210whp... Thats a 11.26 p/w ratio with a 170lbs driver. Also, ive seen them do 320whp with a turbo running strong all day long and doing low 11's...

My friend eddie back in pr... Sweet lift at :05... It will do very low 13's with the right driver

I'd like to have my '55 chev straight axle drag car back, or one of my 3 v/8 Vega's. For a newer car I'd go w/ a '08-'09 Shelby conv. Best bang for the buck is the GT500!!!!!!!!!!

One day I will own all of these.

C6 Z06, SVT Raptor quad cab 6.2L, Pre-smog 1/2 ton pickup (I'm not partial to Ford/Chevy/Dodge here so whatever one tickles my fancy when I see it.)

They had an MRS with a 2ZZGTE swap on Hot Version International's touge showdown. It was hands down the fastest in the sub 200hp class. It absolutely spanked the other cars. There was an MRS for sale here for about 8.6k, nearly bought it.

This may earn me a black mark, but while we're at it, I'd love to own a tuned up EG6 Civic hatch. Possibly with an S2k motor swap. But...I'm not sure I'd use real money on one. Maybe that's a love best left at 'love at a distance'.
