    Going to use a 60s/70s vehicle as the starting point

    Thinking Ford Mustang or Chevy Camaro as the basis for it.

    going to be supercharged and i'm aiming for 650-700hp

    I <3 Nova's but it's too cliche. Find something that you don't normally see at shows

    I'm actually at the vegas airport coming home from the barrett jackson auction. Lots of nice muscle cars in the 10s and 20s. Sure they weren't original numbers matching stuff, but still pretty nice lookin cars that you could have a lot of fun with.
