Default If you had to pick a "Toy" which of these would yo

OK, so this is a tough question.....

I wanna hear some honest answers to this question. They cost the exact same amount of money to build, so thats not a factor.

Lets try and break this one down....

GPS (Both)
Amazing Suspension (Both)
Soft Rides (Both have it)
Can jump 15 to 20 feet (Dune Buggy)
Can rack up trophy's at car shows (Coupe)
Has 1000hp (Dune Buggy)
Has 1000 watt stereo (Coupe)
Chicks Dig it (Both)
Has EFI (Both)
Makes people stair (Both)

So honestly? Kinda of a hard pick......


5.4L Navigator Motor in the Couple, 440Cube LSX in the Buggy


Dyno Tires on the rear of the buggy, normally paddles




Dyno Video of the Buggy

I might say the coupe. Cause I think I'd prefer the streets rather the dunes.

Plus most chicks that would go after the dune buggy, MIGHT not be as classy as the chicks that would go after the coupe.

My issue would be finding somewhere where you could really stretch the buggy's legs. We live in KS/MO not exactly dune territory. I'll take the coupe.

The coupe. Much more practical for KS/MO. I'd just laugh if I saw a dune buggy driving down Metcalf. However, I'd drool if I saw that coupe.

i doubt he would leave the frame in "shitty old car" condition if he had an engine that made some power.

no.

rat rods are shitty old cars, no matter how cool they look they are piles of shit 95% of the time. even if you were to try to make the thing not just pretzel if it ever hooked (it probably wouldn't ever do that though), it would still do a fuckin cartwheel into a wall more than likely.
