    Default If you had the money - any dream projects???

    Just wondering how many of you have dream projects you would love to do but cannot afford....

    I want to rebuilt a vauxhall omega into the ultimate stealth/sleeper car. Seam weld it, cage, seats in etc and then a 3-400hp small block v8 and gearbox for fun......

    Ive always wanted to build a car up from scratch.... take the body of something old, completely gut it, then build it up with all new parts... make it really different and original.

    Build up a GT40 kit and take down to Le Mans. (Although if I had enough bucks I'd buy a real one).

    Got a couple of project ideas, that I would love to make a start on but definitly can't afford to finish them.

    Old 190E merc, tuned for drifting, matt black paint, lowered to the floor, tinted etc A bit drugdealerish from the looks but would love to have a mean drift car and the 190E merc is a lovely base for one.

    Also the other idea I have is to get an old Frontera Sport, and cut the roof off, completely waterproof the interior, fit a roll bar, big wheels and raised suspension, gut the rear seats and my mate who's a chippy could do up some bench seats. Lovely off-roader and summer car, and useful when the roads are snowy

    Might be having a go at the Frontera this summer if I can find a cheap one to start it off.
