We certainly wouldn't claim that the only measure of a gearhead is the number of projects in his or her garage, but certainly it's a useful metric. By that standard, Hot Rod's David Freiburger definitely deserves his post as editor-in-chief, but even he has found himself with more cars than time and is now looking for some assistance in setting priorities.

Hit the link below to view and vote on the projects. We think that The Rallye Duster and NovaXCross would be hugely entertaining, but too many of our formative years were spent watching Smokey and the Bandit and so The Track Day TA is our pick. Note that no bonus points will be awarded to commenters who point out our fetish for cars from the disco decade that are built into all-around performers, as this has previously been established.

      Anything that gets them off the strip/salt. The most interesting cars are usually the ones that are driven every day and run track events... without being trailered, or dragging one.

      Sorry, I can't pick just one either....my picks in descending order are: Pro Street Clone, quick and dirty, VenToura, and NovaXross. As a former Nove owner, I'd be inclined to "combine" the Nova and Ventura projects into one street car. Unfortunately, THAT concept has been done to death.

      Why not the Taurus SHO... you seem to think they will be classics... Try finding OHC Lifter Shims now!

      How about the 1987-1995 Chrysler LeBaron Turbo cars? With a body style that was Italian designed*(based on the Maserati/Chrysler TC-which was supposed to have marketed first),they are still a good looking vehicle by todays design standards.

      If I were doing a project with the sponsorship that HR will generate, I would put AWD under a Chrysler Sebring/ Dodge Avenger, say from the Mitsu 3000 as a donor drivetrain. The body lines of the Sebring LXI were always under-appreciated, in my opinion, and would be ripe for a good massage. Not only would it be unexpected, but you wouldn't see yourself everywhere with all the me too's following. Just a thought.
