BangShift Question Of The Day: What Part Or Parts Are You Currently Lusting After But Cannot Afford?


BangShift Question Of The Day: What Part Or Parts Are You Currently Lusting After But Cannot Afford?

Like virtually all hot rodders, we have champagne tastes and a beer budget. Ok, let’s be honest here. We have box wine tastes and a prison toilet hooch budget, but you get the idea. Every day or every couple days we get on some metal tangent and go searching around the web for photos and videos of stuff we desperately want but can’t afford. Since there are some pretty strict laws about selling/trading children, we’re going to be left longing for a while. A Lenco ST1200 sits atop our DO WANT list currently and there are lots of great videos of dudes ripping the levers on the track and the street. We’ve dreamed about owning one of these sunsabitches since riding shotgun in Larry Larson’s cars so many years ago on the first Hot Rod Magazine Drag Week. It was so freaking awesome that we’ve not been able to shake the memory nearly a decade later.

After seeing all of the autocross action we have over the years, we’re constantly hopped up on the idea of a Schwartz or Roadster Shop chassis, killer handling components from RideTech and others, a blown LS engine….ok you see where this is going. We want to know what part or parts you want right now but will need  to save for!

    A week of vacation time with no obligations other than to finish my existing projects.

    But once I get that out of the way, I’d like a T56 for my Dart… and the parts to put it behind a slant six.

  2. Weasel1

    A new body for my poor ole 79 Ford plow truck. Michigan winters gave not been nice and now parts are literally falling off(tailgate). I have rebuilt almost everything else.

  3. Grippo

    An Altronics Performaire Hand Held Weather Station or a Race Pack Dash or I will settle for a new set of new set of Mickey Pro Bracket Radials….

    Some new wheels for the Falcon would be great. Something lightweight would be the ticket.
    A gear vendors would be the ultimate to stick behind the glide. The 26″ tall tires make for some high revs on the highway.
    A pair of front seats, Scat Procar Rallys in red would be amazing, comfortable, low back and great for Drag Week. Found my stock bench is broken, but I’ve blown the car budget for the year and still have lots of work to do.

    Those Lenco levers in the Mustang are exactly what my 91 LX coupe needs, and wants.

    Even with the stock bullet that’d be epical fun each and every day……….

  6. oldmaninamercury

    Gear Venders OD and a FiTech EFI for my 408 cleveland I’m putting in my Marquis

  7. BeaverMartin

    Atlas transfer case for the K5, Indy Aluminum AMC block and heads for the Matador, Honda Vtec swap subframe for the Mini

  8. 200kss

    Ridetech Tru-turn and coilovers for a G-body, then a Streetgrip setup for another.

    Oh and a shop. 30×40 should do it. I have the land but the wife says the kitchen gets a remodel first.

  9. Joe Jolly

    A Chevy Monza LSR car to drop my Ford drive line in. And then a Jericho. And then a turbo coyote motor. And then..

  10. Josh

    I’d like a 959 ci nitrous mill! I guess I would settle for some chrome smoothies for my bel air though.

  11. James

    A 4l80 swap in place of my t56, I know it’s a so. But being a parapaligic its a little hard to use the clutch the way I use to.
