I would take the movie car Christine and repaint it Orange and Black. Of course it probably would need a little more oomph to move that pig around the track so I'd put the current 5.2 GT500 engine in her and of course swap some big brakes with EBC pads in. I'd play scary music as I drove around the track! Those fins would stabilize her nicely on the straights, lol!

Some nice sport shocks and suspension that would look quite exciting flying around with a GT500 engine!

Quick note on the EBC SR11s ( front and back ), they have stood up extremely well hauling down the Fat Lady Mach 1, and considering she hits the scales over 4000 lbs with a full tank of fuel and me inside, pads have a lot of blubber to slow down.

They have held up super well , will definitely make it through 1-3 more weekends and so far I have never had any brake fade at all. They do get hot, but I will likely install Titanium shields next year, and the extremely strong initial bite has lessened with usage --- though it is still strong. I have been on other pads for many years and am quite impressed with the new offerings from EBC and I may try the RP-1 pads next year. Wondering if just a bit less bite may help at tracks where trail braking is very necessary, though where I run now the SR11s are very, very solid!

Any car build would not be complete without a Moonie.
I had one in my first car and came in handy often. I had also re-routed my windshield sprayers to shoot out the front grill at passers by. I was not wired right as a teenager. Nothing has changed.

Mine is a little pedestrian as its what I have wanted to do for ages. A Factory Five type 65 coupe with a thoroughly modern Coyote gen 3 AED built engine. A 8000 rpm 580 hp beast, all in a 2400lb car with killer looks and modern underpinnings.. What could possibly go wrong???

its the simple things in life: a Superlite GT-R with a 8300rpm 5.2L coyote build. Might not be the most exotic of swaps, but try not to smile down a main straight in it.

Well, My current pony is already a bit of a Frankenstein by most standards:
2005 4.0L convertible
X--Charger Xtreme supercharger
Tremec TR6060 six speed manual
SVT 8.8" rear axle with Detroit Truetrac and 4.30 gears.
Whiteline sways and Watts link
FRPP/Tokico shocks/struts/springs
MM caster/camber plates
GT500 front lower control arms
2015+ Brembo six pot brakes
headers, Corsa Exteme 2011+ mufflers
07-09 GT500 gauge cluster
GT500 front fascia
Saleen Heritage rockers/rear fascia
Cervinis Stalker deck spoiler

Future things I'd like to add to this patchwork pony:
Ford Australia Barra 4.0L inline six with turbo (planning/acquisition stage)
S550 Independent rear suspension (feasibility/research stage)
2011+ EPAS steering rack (parts acquisition stage)
