I know the threads old, but like most gun nuts it seems my only other true passion is cars. Went to SEMA last week with a buddy of mine, we took his 1968 Charger we built. Well it's kind of a '68 Charger, we grafted the '68 body onto an '07 Magnum SRT-8 chassis and drivetrain. Car maintains all the original systems in the Magnum from the door locks to the traction control. Ended up putting a pro charger centrifugal blower on it in the end too. The car did the quarter in 13.63 with a dog leg rear end and street tires and that was before the blower.
I've got a '97 S-10 that I've got on jack stands right now. Blew the trans in it, now trying to locate a decent replacement for it without spending a small fortune. Eventually plan on dropping a 5.7L Vortec V8 into it and redoing the suspension.
Also got a 1990 Mitsubishi Montero that I bought off my uncle for $500. So far all I've done is change the shocks out for some Bilstein 4600's and put some 31x10.5R15 BFG All-Terrains on it. Plan to replace the rear end with a 2nd Gen electronic diff rear end, aussie locker for the front, t-bar crank, lift coil springs in the rear, full bull bar, bumpers, and rock sliders with lights and winch trim, and oh ya I also want to put the the 4.3L V6 from the S-10 in it once that gets a V8
Seems like my biggest problem in life is deciding what to blow all my pocket change on, car parts or guns... I suppose there are worse problems to have.
