My friend just bought an Odyssey and is doing a front clip conversion from the jdm ones. Plus you can't go wrong with a B20 with a Junction Produce setup.

I would choose to build my own car rather than buy one ready to go. What's so great about having something any one else with a 100 grand could have? I'd start with a 78-81 Chevy Malibu wagon and change out pretty much everything on it (large displacement LS engine w/ a couple of turbos, 6-speed, Baer brakes, etc, etc). I'd make the perfect sleeper then go looking to "shit in the hats" of unsuspecting sports car owners.

A Supra for sure! If I can't find one that I like, I will go for the GS 460 or 350.

Now that's some great thinking!!!

If I were to choose a kit car, I'd build a Caterham. I don't care which one, because Caterhams are awsome.

But if I were to choose an already built car, I'd choose the LEGENDARY Subaru Impreza 22B STi-Version, which there are only 400 of them worldwide. So, the chances of even seeing one is slim to none...

http://www.driveperformance.subaru.com/version3_2/attic1.asp









LIMITED PRODUCTION, MAXIMUM DESIRE
Fuji Heavy Industries and Subaru Tecnica International built the 22B in a cooperative effort to commemorate 40 years of manufacturing Subaru vehicles and celebrate the Subaru World Rally Team winning the WRC Manufacturers’ Championships in 1995, 1996, and 1997.

Production of the 22B was limited. Four hundred were built for Japan and 24 more for the United Kingdom and elsewhere around the world. Three more cars – all numbered 000/400 – went to then Subaru World Rally Team driver and 1995 WRC Driver Champion Colin McRae, co-driver Nicky Grist, and Prodrive principal David Richards. (Prodrive manages the Subaru WRC effort.) Most reports claim that unlucky car number 13/400 was not built, but others say that it’s the one in the SOA attic.

The 22B sold out immediately – in anywhere between 30 minutes to 48 hours of its release, depending on the report.


ROAD VERSION OF A WRC RALLY CAR
Based on the domestic Japanese 1998 Impreza WRX STi Type R version 4 Coupe, the 22B featured a hand-built wide body. Its standard wheel arches were cut out and replaced by housings that added 80 mm (3.15 in) to WRX body width. Other external features included a blue pearlescent paint replicating that of the World Rally car, functional hood scoop, water injectors to cool the intercooler, and a tall, adjustable wing on the trunk lid.

The engine was a bored-out version (2.2 liter) of the standard 2.0-liter WRX horizontally opposed four-cylinder with an intercooled turbocharger. The added displacement contributed significantly to mid-range torque, making the torque curve almost flat from approximately 3,200 rpm up to 6,000 rpm. In published driving impressions, journalists puzzled over the car’s actual power output. Some claimed that it had up to 350 and even 380 horsepower, where Subaru published horsepower at 276. This was the contemporary cut-off for horsepower by “gentlemen’s agreement” among the Japanese manufacturers.

All-wheel drive with a Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) was the foundation for the drivetrain. The performance-oriented drivetrain and chassis components included inverted Bilstein struts, Enkei springs, BBS wheels, ventilated brakes (16" front and 15" rear), and viscous limited-slip rear differential. The close-ratio five-speed manual transmission was operated by a twin-plate, ceramic-and-metal competition clutch. All 22B models were right-hand drive.


NOT FOR THE TIMID
The 22B was configured for serious driving. Journalists wrote of it being brutally fast, and its firm suspension along with AWD grip enabled lateral acceleration measured at 0.96 g by a Car and Driver test. Even now, few performance cars are capable of that type of cornering.

Smooth shifting via the competition clutch demanded full concentration. This was not the kind of car for commuting in heavy traffic. Most writers indicated the driving experience was intense.

The WRX 22B STi drove and rode like a Subaru rally car, as it was intended to do. Each one of the limited-edition cars was a little different, and they remain extremely desirable today.

I wouldn't mind a minivan if it looked more along these lines and came with the wood/chrome interior with fully powered heat/cooling seats and drink holders.





oh and tossing this unrelated tidbit in for good measure...

For me, I'd go for the older models. Something like the AE86 Trueno, Fairlady S30Z, or the MR2 AW11. I wouldn't change the how it looks, but I will lighten and reinforce the body to handle higher G-force than it normally handle, swap in a high performance racing engine, put in a turbo or supercharger, and change the suspension and brakes for better handling.

Imagine how it must feel for a driver of a sports car, on it's top speed, being overtaken by a car that's almost like an antique.
