Just wanted to pose a questionnaire that might be fun. Just a little to discuss for those who are bored I guess.

Lets assume you have only 5 grand to get any car and fix it up.

1. What would you pick for a twisty autocross?

2. What would you pick for drag racing to surprise people that a cheap car could do so well?

3. What would you pick for amateur rally to run on mixed winding surfaces?

4. What would you pick for a super long road trip, like coast-to-coast and back?

5. What would you pick for a circle track, and would it be for dirt or tarmac?

Yeah, 5 grand to cover purchase of the car and anything you want to do to it. Like an entry-level beater just to get a foothold in a competition. And say you get 5 grand for each question so you can pick a different vehicle for each.

Lets see...

1. 1992-1997 Crown Victoria or Grand Marquis. Really cheap, easy to find, and enough suspension parts are available to really make one handle.

2. Late model (1998+) Crown Vic or Grand Marquis. Still cheap, and without worrying about streetabiliy can be built for a decent budget.

3. A run down Foxbody Mustang.

4. 1998+ Crown Victoria LX Sport. Will have a few miles on it by the time it's only worth $5 grand, but it'll get the job done.

5. Another Mustang. Gotta be light enough to compete.

And yeah, I am a big Panther Platform fan, haha.

I can tell haha, Very interesting choices. Never heard anyone want a Crown Vic for autocross, I'd kinda like to see that. You certainly are a Ford patron.

I have the $5k car for sale right now since I am loosing my storage space.......85 IROC with new 350 and rebuilt 700r4. It needs a little more power for drag racing but it wouldn't take alot to make this thing run 12's. The handling is alot better than I ever expected.
