Default what restomod would you build?

click

Post a picture and why.
For me it's a Rb26det powered 1969 skyline.

I think it would be fun to show up at old school muscle car shows with a same era import. A 1000hp capable car with out the usual "throw a ls1 in there"

beautiful car, but those chassis were never designed for 1000hp. you will have more fun and go faster with around 500-600.

that's true but are any passenger cars really suited for that power? I'd like to do a full cage and seam weld in a car once to see how much of a difference it really does. I know I can import an ae86 that might be fun. Only issue is the amount of shit people will give me since I'm obsessed with initial D



I know how to build the actual motor from the show but unsure if it will really rev and make power all the way to 11k like it does on there.

I just watched initial d again on netflix. I really like that old skyline. I dont think anyone would give you crap for that at a muscle car show at all its nice looking. As for the ae86 i would love to have one it would be a fun non offensive or overly riced out vehicle

oh I doubt that 86 would put out more than 200 to the wheels. I'm currently working on a 91 civic hatch I'm planning a stock k20a and a rsx 6spd if I can find one with lsd. I think the motor is around 200hp so that would put my stripped car at 200hp per ton give or take. It should be plenty motor for that car, I'm just going to base it around road course stuff and not worry about 1/4 mile. It's a civic so parts should be easy to find.

thats a good pick for the 91 civic. most people would use the bubble hatch 92-95. i sold my 94 si last year which i regret but my kids needed daycare

I've had the hatch for a while so I figured I'd have fun with it. try to keep it budget and buy used parts ext. I'll be looking for a rwd import after the civic is done so I can dd that.
I like the fd's and fc's as well. There is a rx8 here cheap that would make an awesome 3 rotor project but I don't the like how they burn oil and do poor mileage wise.
