    2k from insurance is more than enough to fix the front clip. Judging from what your giving me it shouldn't have been too bad if it was still driveable, but still, If you sold it for a grand it couldn't have been anything impressive in the first place.

    My parents just bought a 2006 Impala SS and I'm loving it. It's probably the fastest sedan I'll ever sit in. Does a quarter-mile in 14.5s and 0-60 in 5.6s. Yet, its surprisingly it gets average 23MPG with a 303hp V8.

    That worries me, how much torque is it pulling out of that V8? I hope a lot. Hyundai/Kia is getting 275 from a four cylinder with 269 LB-Ft of torque.

    I just now figured out there was an automotive forum on here, awesome!

    Anyways, here's my DD



    and here's my land yacht project car, it's a 1970 Chevy Biscayne with a 350 (5.7L) V8, it was my uncle's first car and now we're joint-ly fixing it up and restoring it to original condition






    It's a work in progress, here's the largest rust spot I have to fix ^^^








    The interior is in shockingly good condition, that rug-like material you see is a cover, and under that are the original leather bench seats in perfect condition




    Best speedometer ever right here ^^^

    Well that's me, feel free to ask any questions you may have.

    320 lb/ft of torque I think. What kind of hyundai/kia do you have?

    Can't afford a new car. My car is pulling MAYBE 110 from a 2.0 I4.

    But yeah, I was talking about the Turbo 4 in the Sonata and Optima. It's in some of their crossovers too, but it has less HP and more torque.

    Well, for one, you're comparing a brand-new car, to a car that is 5 years old. They have much different technology. For instance, GM is now producing a 3.8L v6 that can pull the same amount of HP as the V8 in the Impala SS I spoke of earlier. Now that that's aside, you can't just blindly look at horsepower and torque. Ideally, the higher the torque, the better your car is for gearing. I won't go into details, but basically your 2.0 turbo will start to lose power at 1750 RPM while my Impala is still going strong up to 5000RPM.

    Edited:

    Also should note, that I'm sure if I slapped on a Turbocharger, I would gain much more horsepower and torque to the V8. As my pops always says, "There's no replacement for displacement"

    replacement for displacement = 2JZ-GTE

    let me know when you get 500hp/liter out of a streetable v8

    If you're pulling 500hp/liter, then you must have a super car because that's 1500 horsepower for 3 liters. That's more horsepower than a Bugatti Veyron, I'd rewrite your post.

    id leave automotive discussion because apparently you dont know what you're talking about

    there are stock bottom end supras running 1000whp on the street. have titan motorsports put together one of their 3.4 stroker engines, and have 1400whp.

    there are ones that run even crazier amount that are still sometimes driving on the street


    Edited:

    and thats all street cars. Mazworx of Orlando, FL has an Silvia S15 drag car thats pulling 1400whp out of 2.2L SR20DET with a VE head revving to 11K

    I looked up the motor you're talking about, it said nothing about even coming close to 500 hp stock. If you're talking about heavy modifications to the motor, then you're at an unfair advantage to a stock Impala. If you want to talk fastest street car, I wouldn't put in a stock Impala SS with just a bare V8. Also, it doesn't take much to be a street legal car.

    Edited:

    I'm not sure what you're trying to argue about.

    Just bought this today for 1,100, and yes, this is the only picture so far...

    I present my 1982 Land Rover Series 3 88...


    Most of it is surface rust and the guy is going to M.o.T it for me (Replacing all the lights,replacing a side glass panel driver side, replacing offside fender and giving me some off-road tires and rims :D)

    For the guys that don't know what a M.o.T is outside of the UK, its basically a test they do each year to make sure its road worthy...

    Hopefully this is going to be my project for the next few years or so, i may do a thread on it if i think its worthy enough (doing the restoration that is...)

    I thought i would put this in the "Cool cars" thread to be "funny"
    Got some more pictures of it when i went around on Saturday, the guy has done nothing to it, im starting to get annoyed...




    Yeah, i know, it looks like shit, but once im done with it, its going to look fantastic...
