    My latest automotive pipe dream

    A 914 with a Suby motor in it. Anyone know anyone who has done it?

    300 hp in a 2200 pound car that can handle sounds good to me. Even a stock 220 hp would haul (and the motor is lighter than a stock flat six)

    What is your current semi-realistic dream car?

    Since we are making Christmas wish list already,

    Rolling chassis from Sucker Punch Sallys

    120 inch Panhead from Accurate Engineering

    Right side drive transmission from Baker

    Custom built 2 into 1 exhaust with carbon fiber muffler.

    Gloss black, wrinkle black or aluminum, NO chrome, please.

    They have some nice frames at SPS. Never heard of them before (I am not a bike guy), but will keep my ear out for them. Doubt too many folks are riding them around here, but maybe a couple will roll through at some point

    To be honest, I’d rather have something along the lines of a Softail frame, those rigid frames are absolute hell on your back after a long ride. That’s why they have springs on the seats or run the rear tire low.

    The Softails give you the rigid look and a little more cushion on the ride. Also, I really have no clue if a right side drive transmission would fit in that configuration.
