    I can't look at XK Jags without remembering I passed up several nice ones for around $4000-$5000 back in my USAF days.

    I did get a 67 Porsche and it was probably far more reliable and still pretty sweet but the XKE's were... oh never mind:( :)

    Thanks a lot, Wil ;)

    Which one? There were two 454's offered in 1970.
    The LS-6. Alum heads, rated at 450 hp.
    The LS-5. Iron heads, rated at 390 hp.
  7. I was only aware of there being the LS6. So, that one. ;) A Chevelle looks really nice in red, btw.

  8. You must be mistaken....the coolest car ever is the 1969 Mustang Fastback.

    Mopar > GM :p

  11. Austin Healey....something. I'll guess 3000 MkIII, but that's a way out there guess.

    I've always wanted to get a MGB and just hack away on it. Got tons of drivetrain options (parents own an automobile recycling yard). Just have something that will never be a show car, and design absolutely everything except the overall body shape. Put something in there other than some crappy tractor engine.

    How about using a 500 cid Caddy engine? Theres more stuff available for these engines than youd believe, and if you can fit it in its 100lbs lighter than a BB Chevy. I built one years ago for a 77 Blazer with 44's, and it was a torque monster.
