I especially like the white one in the background. Wasn't there pics of the pair of these somewhere in here on GD?

Time for a little JEEP love!!! Dream/ Work in progress .... This year is just cleaning everything up and modifying to my liking and next summer plan to do a full tear down and then paint and powdercoat. Twin Turbo 415 on methanol with Motec fuel injection. Engine makes 1000+ and would probably crack 1000 to the tire on kill. Three seats so it is ready when the family grows, will make a good family wagon :sha:

Tatum 2 seat mid-engine. I'd want CBM to build me a LS based RHS blocked 502 twin turbo and a Dailey dry sump and an Albins six speed sequential to back up that :sba: motor! Yep that should do it.

Anybody interested in bringing an old thread back to life?  

Sure, why not.

I can’t get enough of the white on black scheme. The SU or even the little smaller SCU with an open front.   

Or of course I’d take a class 1 and strip it down to lighten it up.  

Any takers? What’s on the Christmas list for you guys this year?

Love my Funco Gen4 with LS and Albins its reliable, fast and handles great but just can't shake the mini-van look.

Funco F9, albins, supercharged LS.   Was talking to Gil at the sand show a couple years back and told him I would buy a new car from him someday.   He told me that I better go back to work.   Someday..... Someday.

I’ve wanted one since I first saw the cover of Hot VWs sand special in 1990! Early 1990s SCU 2 seat a-arm mid, but upgraded with current technology. Subaru/2d/5 link would do the trick for me. One of these days...

3 years later this! 1146711751_thumbnail_IMG_00341.thumb.jpg.5c85c42aeb313f9663865b70b18e7b7c.jpg.7b2401da483de66f708a641f253c62d5.jpg

I just don't think it's 40-50K more fun then my current car or I'd make the leap.

I've got my dream car, SU Sand Pro 2 mid with a CBM 383 stroker and PBS sequential.  Now dreaming of what upgrades to do.

2" hollow spindles, and a hood that's all that's left to do! Maybe a wheelie bar!!

My current car was my dream car for several years before I finally got one.  Although I wasn't wild about the colors, it had all the right parts and components.  The package was exactly what I wanted.  Rocked it for a few seasons then did a full tear down and re-color.  Now it's exactly what I want.  Clean, simple, duning machine.  The ONLY thing I would possibly consider would be a stripped down Gen 6(no hood no windshield, simple tin, minimal dash) with a built Outfront 6 cylinder(500ish whp) and a Fortin H-pattern.

Building it.. It's a 1.75"  DD pre-runner chassis. It will be a tri-sport. Street legal,dune and desert worthy.. it has been, and is an has been a slow build.. it moves along as cash allows.. Next hurdle is the trans-axle. Was hoping to come across a good used Albins, but if not will go for a S4D.
