View Full Version : Suggestions on next car to restore for a dd

06-04-2006, 12:08 AM
Well i finally pretty much finished up on my chevelle, except for i still need to take the tranny back out and put a new front seal in and im going to do a new torque converter and racing clutch's blah blah. But since this one is all finished me and my dad have decided to build something else that i will be able to drive in the winter and what not.

No matter what heres what i have selected pretty much already. Going to strip down and start from scratch.

Black leather interior

400 small black built to the max, with aftermarket efi on it. Going to also run nitrous untill i save a few g's up for a pro charger after the car is done.
Je forged nitrous/supercharger pistons,moly rings, forged rods, 4 bolt main block, jegs heads, nos 2 stage nitrous system, etc etc etc....

Tranny swap to a t-56 which will also be built to the max.

House of color paint, undecided either a silver to blue kameleon with flake or i dunno something else.

Thats pretty much it plus another thousand details.

But for car choices is what i need help on. Its between :

79 monte carlo 83-88 monte carlo , 94 - 96 camaro, or an 80's camaro. Also looking at cutlass or something along those lines.

Audio system will be clarion indash 935vx, boston pro 60's, pg xenon 200.4 for the pro's, 18" mt , amp for the mt undecided, **** load of rammat and blah blah you get the picture.

Rember now this is going to my daily driver so yea........ The idea im going for here is a very sick daily driver all the way around

All suggestions welcome...................

06-04-2006, 12:58 AM

06-04-2006, 01:07 AM

monte ss and i love the sb 400 i have one that rocks. not hard to get massive power out of it.

06-04-2006, 01:11 AM
oh man i wish i was u, i had two 80's monte ss and purely love those body's, so my vote is for the monte

06-04-2006, 01:12 AM
if u do the monte , should make it a dale earnhardt tribute car with the 3 on the side of it and the decals

Out of those listed, the Monte but only '86 and up. There were small changes like the mirrors and such. I say '68 to '72 nova though. :yumyum:

Dont really matter what year cutlass ive never really looked at them like i have these other cars. You tell me what year you like and ill check it out ebay and see if i like it. Yea i really like the body style of the 88 monte carlo's.

Plus my chevelle hates rain let alone snow lol this is going to be a daily driver once again and winters are going to be a ***** in any rear wheel drive car im picking but especially in my chevelle i spin more in the rain in that thing than i do with my moms impala in the snow :crap: but since the restore it hasnt seen rain :)

Well now that I think about it, I would go with the 93 to 97 camaro. Fuel injection is quite lovely on cold mornings, plus better fuel economy as well. I you can afford it the get a 98 up, they changed the front end as well as 98 was the first year of the LS1.

06-04-2006, 03:34 AM
Yea i also like the 98 and up better. But problems come around then cause from 96 and up i have to pass emissions and other junk.......... So i need to do something a little older .......

Id say 93 camaro, but to each his own.
