80s GM interiors were utter garbage. GTO seats/dash are a nice enough upgrade without being out of place in the super old body. plus you can get Chevy badges for the dash. Id definitely do an aftermarket steering wheel though.
Hilariously after posting this on my drive home i saw a super clean 80s el camino. its gotta be a sign right? cmon lottery ticket!
OMG I want one sooooo bad!!! Would be faster than anything I could ever build for sure.... and getting something like that in IN a VIN and plates isn't as difficult as you might think... omg why am I like this ?
don't take this the wrong way - you can't build what oyu have and don't know how it runs. I think it will surprise you.
Meanwhile his mini F1 car is way to small for road use IMO - I know you are smaller than I so fitment might not matter. I wouldn't put it on the street. Arial atom (SP) is about as small as I can stand on a public road.
First off money is no object - I'm a build my own damn hypercar. I have gates money to blow - smurf a duck.
I have my own test track, I don't care if I sell more than 2 cars.
and I would make more than one type. track fun toy - I'd roll back to electric like that RIMAC thing. 0-100 in 2 seconds flat - active aero - etc etc.
Then have some sort of sport sedan/station wagon - hybrid power, gas turbine to provide electrons to a battery pack plug in 2 motor AWD system. sized like a new model Explorer. 0-60 in 3 seconds, but will if you want pull 1.1 G on the skidpad with active aero and brakes that will hold down a blimp.
Roll around town in my refurbished Duesenberg why because I can damn it. And full retormod a 72 buick boattail Riv with a custom AL race motor. and I don't know if I'd roll all N/A or if I would roll twin turbos so smurf it I'm a build both because I can.
and finally I'd have 2 race planes and when I roll out to drive in monaco ride off in a personal 777 300ER F and show up with 2 cars, pit tools, and I guess the wife and kids. debatable there.
I mean seriously if there was no limit on the money I'd have engineered variable valve timing, and lift systems with electronically operated valves that opened to unrestricted cylinder flow. Or you know unproducible.
well ok engineer in me would punt and do the turbine thing because reality maths.
So, working from home is apparently going to be my "new normal". I'm a few hours in. I get the benefits -- less commute, wardrobe optional, Imma has another box of Oreos for lunch, etc. -- but... I CAN HAS COMMUNICAYSHUNZ, plzthnx.
This is a bit of a social experiment.

Anyone have a more utility side by sides? I don't want a high performance, trail/rock climbing type of UTV. Looking for experiences. I have been looking at Polaris Rangers, Honda Pioneers, Kubotas, and John Deeres so far.
1) How have they held up?
2) How do you use them? I plan to use...
We had a crazy July 4 car meet last night. It’s usually 30-50 cars every Saturday night but last night...Omg. It was hundreds. They were saying probably close to 500 people there last night. There was burnouts, donuts, drifting, fireworks and even a dude cruising around on a dang go kart...
