Default The off topic thread.

I think it's about time we start one of these. This is the general discussion thread about weather, stock prices, the neighbor's dog, etc.

Actually I want a 1992 Dodge Grand Caravan ES sitting on basically an extended Z06 drivetrain/suspension. Although I'd take the Ford too

with a lil hard work and money we could put you into orbit. throw a banks twin turbo small block in it runin on nitro you would make around 2000 bhp and thats before the nitrous is used for anti lag

um... I want to be able to drive it on the street. 600-700RWHP out of an LS1 on pump gas I think is very possible. The trick would be the suspension. and a lot of work on the body to make it as light as possible. I don't want to go into orbit in it
