Okay, decided i'm going to have a project car... Want something fast . :) (Not a ZR)

So... Ideas?

Was Thinking:

FTO, GT4, TypeR, M3....Possibly a Supra

Any other Ideas?

been told by a mate that has had one for years that rx7's are amazingly expensive to run and maintain, but yes they can look really smart and are stupid fast from standard but can be made ridiculously fast with not too much work.

however id go for the supra, better looking imo and can get all the power youll need ;)

i vote FTO.but then again..i would!

been into jap cars for quite a while.in reality if your going to go the a twin turbo rx-7/supra then fine-choose the supra.tunable to 550bhp on standard internals.

rx-7 need engine rebuilds every 60,000 miles or so.

but if your going to just get a 3.0n/a supra then you may aswell go for the fto IMO.

as i did.

Yeah? Always liked the GTO's / FTO's.. FTO's more ;)

Whats your all round opinion on one? (Dont be biased :p)

GTO are class, FTO in my opinion always looked like they should be beating 911's but in reality just weren't
that was said many times im sure its what max power said about them many moons ago and its very true. i should imagine that an evo engine would fit in a fto engine bay
