I've never driven an evo, but I must say, I'm a little partial to the WRX if I were to go down that road. The way I see it, if I want 4WD, I'll get my truck. I can go a bit farther off road in that, than an evo or wrx. Just my personal preferance. I must say tho, those turbo'd 4's haul some serious behind and the launch on them AWD's is ridiculous! LOL!

But I'll still stick with my old cars and big trucks! After my 66 coupe is done, I'm hunting down a 63 Thunderbird, kinda like this:



But, in the words of the great Henry Ford, "Any color you want, just so long as it's black."

This would stay stock, unlike the Stang. The T-Bird would be more of a cruising car that my speed car.

Heck yeah they do :) The Evo VIII is stock 278hp and mine's around 330 with the turbo-back and ECU. Cams and gears can take it to 390, which I think is next on the list

390 is baby numbers. Moreso when a turbo is added. A friend of mine has a 5 liter motor with 638BHP, naturally asperiated on pump gas (93 octane).

I have a parts list (somewhere) for a 670 HP 5.0 stroker motor. Once again, N/A.

I plan to build a mild 400-450HP motor for the 66 Coupe and maybe strap a S/C on it. I'd love to find a way to buy a complete 03-04 cobra motor for it! Those are good for a solid 650+ with a turbo mod.

Cara, I do agree. I don't have a huge passion for American cars, new ones that is. I'm a classic car guy to the max and will never give up my classic American cars. I'm frankly getting tired of driving American cars, tho. They aren't reliable enough and we Americans need to incorperate the Chinese/Japanese standards into the way we build our cars. Than American cars might re-gain some sort of market.

My next car (truck rather) is going to be a Toyota Tacoma and my next car would prolly be the Acura TL Type S or Toyota Camry, Prius if I get a hybrid, which I am considering.
