We featured a Hoonigan video today of a 1971 Trans Am that has a roots blown LS under the hood connected to a Nissan GTR front and rear suspension. It’s the best of GM and the best of Nissan, in a package that looks awesome and undoubtedly hauls ass at a level no 2nd Gen F-Body has before. But a GTR drivetrain is not the only kick ass all-wheel drive platform, and all-wheel drive isn’t the only cool technology to be had from today’s high performance machines. So what other high-tech bad assery could you imagine stuffing into some classic muscle car? Or maybe not a muscle car. Maybe just something old?
Imagine a Gremlin with all the amazing technology currently found in a new Camaro? Or a Pinto with EVERYTHING from a new 5.0 Mustang GT? How about taking an Aspen and making it have everything a new Hellcat has on board?
I can imagine there are plenty of muscle cars and odd-balls that could be cool with all the modern stuff. We’d definitely remove all the nanny controls of course, but otherwise we’d leave all the cool stuff. How about some cool old import like a 510 or Celica? Man I could think of a jillion cool combos.
What about you?
What cool old car would you morph with something modern to make the ultimate ride?
