    AE86 with ITB 3S Beam's to replace the lost feeling of my old 4AGZE AE86
    JZX81 with 1.25JZ (2JZ head on 1JZ Block (will start this engine sometime next year and have the car)
    SW20 with either a 1UZ in North south convig or a simple K20/24 swap or something silly and with a wild Super GT kit from the era (club rego it :P)
    if i dont do the SW20 i will do a kit car either GT40/ultima or design something from scratch based off a TS020 looks wise. Just thinking SW20 is easier to rego but i do have TS020 3D Drawings and maybe work will allow me to use there 1:1 5 axis cnc mill to do a plug from lol

    And one if i ever wreck or sell the X81 i currently have will be a Barra in a GS300

    An old Jag needs an inline six or a V12.

    Which reminds me, I want to put a 1GZ into an E-type. Imagine how much that would annoy the purists, especially when it turns out to be reliable and somewhat fast!

    My original dream conversion was 4G63 turbo or 6G72 into a GD Mitsubishi Galant. Got partway there - EFI 4G54 👍
    Current two are:
    Saab B234R into something light and RWD (MX5, Locost or Elise)
    Mazda 2.0 or 2.5 into my Mazda 2. I want that feel of the Pug 205GTI, bigger torquier motor.
    I love the ideas thrown up by you guys so far.

    Oh, and a 190E with E55 running gear.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Anything with E55/SL55/CLS55 running gear would be a hoot

    Fit a 1.5" exhaust while you're at it, and when asked why it's so small, "because you need backpressure to make power".
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    Would have been fun! What do they handle like? My CLK "feels" heavy, 3 turns lock-to-lock, 1.7 tons, are the E55's better?

    The first 2 years of E55 got the standard ratio rack and front bushes so steering is pretty numb, but light. The later cars got the CLK(CLS?) rack and front bushes which is supposed to make a big difference, but it's 2 tonne of Sedan so there's that. It's immensely capable so you just find yourself bunging it into corners, getting it straightish and nailing it - at which point the thing throttle steers a little, and just takes a set and goes. In terms of feel and feedback, my benchmark in the GTV is pretty high, but the E55 is just so damn fast. Just ask the guy in the 430 Spider that tried to gap us.

    you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

    So when gamma sends neek's e55 into the bushes on Nebo, it should be towed back to my place dumped in my driveway so a transplant of motor and gearbox can be performed on my W116...

    Probably any Ducati V twin is a little un interesting post Aprilia V4 experience.

    New V4 from Duc might be a different story though judging by the one and only I have heard running.

    There's a wrecked one on Gumtree or FB Marketplace for low teens, or "make an offer". Rear end damage.
