My Ride: Dinan 330i
Bought my '89 Plymouth Voyager TURBO-$200.00

Yes, $200!

hahahahaha this thing is a bucket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But it runs and I got the entire vehicle for $200.00

www.turbominivan.com

Youtube "turbo minivan" and google it too.

These babies came stock with a turbo (150hp). Me and a buddy spent 3hrs completely gutting this van last Sunday...call me crazy but this thing is QUICK for a minivan!!! And under 3,000 lbs.

While we were gutting it, we didn't hesitate to throw hammers at it, kick it, stomp it, punch it, throw small boulders at it, spray paint things onto it...etc etc...

We are going to get this thing running 100% and then attempt to transform it into some sort of sleeper...which if you youtube it or google it you will see that this is VERY possible. hahahah should be fun.

The highlight of the vehicle is you can actually shake the driver's side rear wheel because the wheel itself is so loose. Sweet!

Car is NOT in our names. Registered until May '09. We have title in hand, but signed no transfer of ownership, etc (bought it off a gangster in SJ, could be stolen ) so worst case scenario is we get lazy and decide not to mod it...so we'll drive it up curbs, soar over speedbumps and / or drive it into a brick wall and just leave it there...all that fun is WELL worth $200.

I guess I'm so excited because it was only $200 and I can do anything I want to it and NOT CARE.

My Ride: Turns left
when the thing is on its last leg demo derby!!!

or find a local race track, they sometimes have things called spectator drags where people race their street cars around the track for a lap or 2. I once saw a honda civic wreck a corvette...it was hilarious.
