The best car foundations

Ok. This is a runoff of several threads. What, in your opinion, is the best car setup ever to make VERY fast. The only qualification is that the car has to have an original selling cost less than 50K. No vettes, vipers, or Ford Gt's or other super cars.

I nominate the Toyota Supra, 05 GTO. I think the overall foundation for these cars are simply built to be modded and go extremely fast.

tHE TYPHOON WAS A BETTER CHOICE, SINCE IT HAD ROOM FOR 4, AND CRAP!

ID BUY ONE IF THEY MADE IT AGAIN! 6 CYLINDER ECONOMY, V8 PERFORMANCE, AWD RELIABILITY.

the TB SS is a pig. Sure it runs 13.9 but it also has V8 fuel economy and is not AWD.

Yeah I agree with that. If you drive one they are not very impressive. they are actually a good reason for this thread. They have the power, but not the suspension, transmission.


I am not sure I agree with the 03-04 Cobras either. They are fast as hell, but I think there are many better cars to make VERY fast. They are simply too heavy with too old of a suspension and transmission.

Fox bodies I agree with simply because they were light, and had an amazing engine that was built to be modded.
