Your DreamRide with any classic Motor

If you could have any classic car or truck with any engine.... what would it be??????

i would have a 67 nova with a 383 that rev's like a 327 , a 200r4 transmission, 3.42 gears and it would have somewhere around 350 - 375hp/tq.. just enough but not too much

Mine is a '42 Chevy with an Olds 455 but I own it already just not finished. The dream is to add another 70-100 horsepower, too much is never enough.

My '72 cutlass supreme, with the Olds 350 I have in it, BUT upgrade to a hyd roller cam, rod and piston upgrade, and port EFI conversion- also the same paint scheme but stripped to bare metal and redone (which I plan to do when I find the funds).

If it had to be a car I don't own I would say a '72 hardtop 442 with a turbo Buick 3800 (just to be different), bucket seats, and a 6 speed. Same paint style as my cutlass supreme.

I'm lucky enough to have built my dream car. If I was rich I'd have a Hemi Cuda to add to the garage.
