    35,000 dollar car

    Mudge made me think about this with his comments on the 350Z... what would you buy if you had 35k to spend on a car and why?
    Are you kidding me????

    I spent a good deal of time playing with cars, right now I just have a 240Z and a beater.

    I would love to have a 1999 FRC C5, which means fixed roof coupe (hardtop), which the Z06 later replaced. I'm a budget minded person, I put out 411 RWHP with my 94 Z28 on about $2260 in mods, naturally aspirated, tuned it myself.

    Right now though I just would like to put a 5 liter V8 in my 240, a roll cage, few various mods and keep it relatively budget minded. I should lose about 40# and gain some weight distribution (49/51) with the 5 liter ford, the straight 6 is very long and a very heavy block for its mere 2.8L displacement. I should come in around 2280# not counting a cage, and no fiberglass part swaps.

    It was known as the Fairlady, the Sylvia is the 240SX. The American 240SX comes with a KA24 single or dual cam, and the "JDE" version came with the SR20DET.

    The Fairlady came with a 2 liter instead of 2.4L straight 6, I have a later F54 block, 2.8L engine in mine from a 1982 car.

    Well I know this thread states "Car", but for me it would be a truck all the way.

    If I had 35 grand to blow myself I would probably buy a Dodge Cummings Diesel 4 x 4 4door Truck.... Ohhhhh yeahhhhhh

    Why? Well I love trucks and Cummings Diesel motors are awsome. They generally will outlast the truck.... Get more miles out of a good diesel motor than gas... Produces excellent torque and good on gas too . It's nice to dream.... Well I'll probably end up settling for a Ford F150 though, but that's ok too.

    35K really isn't that much, maybe some of you guys are just starting out or are still in college?? Once you are woking for awhile, it will be easy to get what you want, though I wouldn't spend more than I was comfortable with.
    Lex GS 430 once the current car hits 100K miles.

    for a cummings? Better bring more $$!

    for the 3 cars listed, I"d get the EVO.

    I'm with Mudge and Kuso ... buy an older car and restore it ... well hot rod it. A 57 Chevy would do just nice thank you.

    Either that or take the 35K and prostreet my 52 dodge truck - turning it into one mean machine.

    Don't know that I could ever see myself buying a luxury car ...

    Mudge ... you're getting 411hp out of an engine for $2260 worth of mods???
    Now rollin' with the Raider
