My ride is a 1991 henway. Very green. just add corn and it will run all day. Some very good byproducts for free.
My dream car is one of those CAT dumptrucks that are REALLY REALLY REALLY HUGE!!!!!!! I'm going to paint it flat black and get custom REALLY REALLY huge rims. oh and I'm going to put padding in the back so people can hang out where they out the dirt and crap but there will be no crap( or dirt). NO I'm not a redneck ( not to be offensive).
I've driven them before...
Along with almost every kind of plant imaginable...
what do you mean by plant?
heavy plant machinery, like front loaders cranes steamrollers etc.
A little ole Maserati....
Those are my dream cars, this is my reality car. :P
Honda Civic EX coup.
Got it yesterday.
Have you ever watched The Jetsons?
I think once, when I was little. Why?
. Late-60's sports/muscle car - Mustang, Camaro, Charger, ... it doesn't really matter which one.
. I'm currently working on my '67 Mustang coupe's transmission (big-block top-loader) and rearend (3.25 9"). Both of those go behind a Mexican 302 block (289 internals, but a longer stroke is on my to-do list).
My absolute dream car is what you said but converted to electric. I think a 60s/70s muscle car would make a good electric donor car- big engine bay for batteries, rear wheel drive, solid suspension to deal with the weight of all that lead... and they are still cool after 40 years :)
The few that are around turn heads here anyway, being twice the size of the average Brit car, so a nearly silent one (adding to the "boat" feel) would be incredibly fun... just don't take it on narrow streets...
If at all possible, the batteries should be placed near the center of the car, and down low. By placing the batteries under the hood, you move weight to the front axle, reducing the traction on the rear wheels while making it harder to steer.*
*Harder to steer unless you put in power steering, which is a pain.
This is a good point. Really I meant that older American cars aren't quite as compacted as modern Europeans ones and (I would imagine) have larger internal spaces more suited to fitting batteries in.
Newer' American cars aren't quite as compacted as modern European ones.Do they even sell the Chevy Avalanche in Europe?
Whoops...missed a quotation mark...Only newer was supposed to be italicized.
I've got a '93 Firebird with cooked electrics and a '76 Grand Prix with slipped timing. Now you've got me thinking!
I've got a close friend in Searcy that's into Stangs. All he does is '64 to '67. He's an elderly gentleman who'll talk your ear off, but he really knows his Mustangs. If you hit any roadblocks, I'd be glad to put you onto him. He haS 2 convertibles and a fastback in primo condition and about 6 or 7 others in various stages of restoration.

Nice!How bout a '69 Dodge Charger?VROOM VROOM.
it's funny because it's a dream...
Hudson, Bugatti, '67 GTO, '49 Mercury
It's some kind of big-tired off-road low-down electric go-kartish tricycle (2 wheels in front, one in back).Among other things, i'd also like body panels and skid plates made out of this (http://www.robotmarketplace.com/products/WCC-SNDH0201132.html), a homopolar motor inside each wheel, super-capacitors instead of batteries, magnetic shocks and springs, and tweel airless tires (the big fat knobbly ones anyway).Hmmm... I wonder how much that would cost... better not even think about it.
Or maybe just a street-legal electric F1. No forgetting the homopolar motors and the poly-propylene honeycomb carbon-fiber sandwich body though.
Well, that's easy.That or an electric mid-'40s Bentley S1. Painted silver. With rockets. Now that would be cool.
Whoops, I meant 50s, not 40s. They didn't build Bentleys during WWII.
