Yeah as I watch some of these youtube videos of similar cars/buys it meshes with what you're saying. I'd def not incredibly adept (can do basic stuff), and whatever I get will be a driveway queen as I work from home, but I have been looking over modified stuff and will probably try to just look for mostly OEM cars due to what you said.

I guess it's obvious, but a more hi-po car with a lighter modification is definitely better than a lower powered one with significant mods for power addition.

forced induction on any 'newer' car - GM LS platform from late 90's+, Ford 3-valve up and the gen 3 hemi dodges - isn't much of a problem at those power levels. It's really the condition of the vehicle and how 'turned up' that power adder is

Has a fan that doesn't so much create a vacuum (its not powerful enough for that) as modifies the airflow.

More interested in it weighing under 2200 lbs, having a naturally aspirated V12 that puts out 650 hp and redlines over 12,000, and having a 6 speed manual transmission. I would also imagine it doesn't have power steering, and limited stability control (only what's required by law).

Saw a preproduction Ford Bronco 4 door yesterday by Mount Mitchell. Was wearing the factory camouflage. Then saw it a few minutes later when the drivers stopped for lunch at the same place I did, haha. Was under a tarp then, however.

^you're killing me.


....and you're basically getting into 4th gen F-body, Foxbody, SN-95 & New-Edge mustang territory. Might find a ragged out GTO or G8 for that pricing.


Now, if you're not concerned with actual performance..... Dodge Dakota v8, Crown Vic, etc.
