Nice cars guys!

Looks like tomorrow will be the cutoff here as well - to stop pretending it's spring, and say goodbye to the car for a few months.

Would be cool to make it a resto-rod style Z. Keep all the styling but put a miata engine trans in it. Would have slick 5 speed and good engine maintaining light weight.

I've gone back/forth about putting a LS1 in it. Lots of guys have done it, mated to a Tremec 5 or 6 speed. Talk about bad a$$. Only affects the weight by around 40lbs towards the front, as the original straight 6 is quite heavy. I've also thought about having the motor gone over to freshen it up. Maybe a mild cam swap too. All depends on how adventurous I want to get, plus how deep my pocket book is at the time.

Wow, that is yours? Tell us more! There's a Lamborghini dealer near my house I am seeing them more often than years past.

Very cool!

It's a 2016 Lambo Huracan - LP610-4 in Midas yellow. I decided I didn't want to be the really old guy driving one so I got it now. Incredible experience to drive. Really got hooked after driving an aventador in LV and then a 458 Speciale in Germany for two days. Found a guy here in VB who has a Gallardo Superleggra in the same yellow at a local cars and coffee event.

Oh forgot the details. 2015 Charger Scat Pack. The lesser known car. Same engine as the SRT 392. No adjustable suspension and a few less options in the driving modes. Smaller brakes and tires too but I don't track the car and I drive like granny. But I think it was 7K less and cheaper to insure.

Going to start a build on a '67 Impala SS convertible. Not me - paying for it, I don't know what the hell's going on under the hood. I just like the old stuff mostly mid-60's.

Debating on the engine? Rebuild the 327 or put in a period correct 427? That should add $5 + K to the value of the car. I'm not going to resto-mod it too much aside from brakes and suspension - I want it to look stock. I'm thinking save the 327 and put it on a stand and buy a modern Chevy crate motor. If I ever get rid of the car I'll let the old 327 go with it

If the 327 is original to the car, that's the way to go to retain the value. If you want the 427, save the original engine.
