              Long time fan of the N12, shame you would be hard pressed to find one these days.
              couple kicking around at the $500 mark

              Reckon a stripped out EXA would be a pretty quick thing - ~750kgs & ~140hp @ wheels.

              Might get a coupla passes out of it.

                Scotty has understood the idea. Registration and engineering (if you want to make it legal) is not included in the price. Since that would be almost the whole budget. But the car has to be driven to the drags in such a way that driving past cops wont raise a sweat. So should be registered and engineerable even if it isn't at the date of running the 13. Its supposed to be a genuine street car.

                Some good ideas so far though.

                Chuck will the V6 VB need a custom drive shaft? I guess it would. Who not use a AU powertrain? It has almost 160kw.

                My Bro got a mint R31 for $100 from the scrap metal but its auto.

                      i think a crashed JZZ30 auto TT soarer could nearly make that budget and time (off the bat).

                      a bit of improv panel beating could make it look sensible too

                            How about a '79ish 323 hatch or similar?



                            Cant be any more than a few hundred bucks, plus a worn out 13b BP or PP. Even a shot of Nos might give it some more.


                            Wont last for long, thats for sure!
