How about a 4 door Zypher Foxbody. Stock hood, full quiet exhaust and all. That would piss off those guys with the fart cans!!

I think a 99 to 04 mustang as you can pick them up for a great price especially a V-6 model.

+2 That would be cool, are a 472 with some good heads and a 2 stage fogger system, and a fiberglass camper for areodynamics, shortbed, with suspension mods to where it will really hook up. My 1978 is kind of sneaky like that, but the camper would really throw off the jap junkers. Throw a John Deere riding lawnmower in the bed for extra traction.

camper shell aero?

Anyone remember the Dakota that Banks ran on the salt flats? I seem to recall that they tried all kinds of bed cover; flat, racerback, tailgate up,down flat covers, all sorts of things. Didn't they find that an open bed with the gate up had the best aerodynamics? Think it was due to the eddys in the bed, created a pressure ridge that helped push air over the open bed and cleaned up the tail. It's been a long time ago, but that's the way I remember it. Anyone else remember that? Anyway you cut it though, a bad-a-- truck is hard to beat.

I got my eye on a 72 pontiac lemans right now. I was thinking a single turbo 429 would probably get it to scoot. And if corse i would do it as a judge clone

I've got a 77 2dr Granada 302 I purchased almost a year ago, drove it home. Had every intention of stuffing a bbf stroker down into it making a weekend warrior/sleeper car. Never started in on it though because it bothered me to think of molesting such a great 36 year old survivor car. I think the Granada is the perfect sleeper car. It looks originally good inside and out, from paint to interior all the way down to the factory hubcaps. Looks like something someone's granny might drive. Who would think a granny Granada rolling up beside them at a stoplight would haul a$$, right? To many projects not enough time or $, so the Granada must go. Would have even looked great with 2x4s sticking through the hood. Oh Well!!

How about an ultra sleeper. Mid 90's Taurus BBF with a couple stages of nitrous or big turbo. Would be a hell of a lot of work but no one would see it coming.
