Not all foxes are junker cars. There are a few that are built right and perform well and drive well. When I built mine I used the C5 Z06 as a base car to compare it too. Not everyone can afford these new flavor of the week cars, that doesn't mean a properly built fox is a "junker" just because it's a old car. I agree most of them are junkers because they only worry about one thing, straight line speed no matter the cost. Me personally I'd rather have my fox that I built that'll run just as fast as these cars and still be able to be daily driven. Hot rodding is about the fun of building something you want to enjoy and actually using it/driving it. I don't feel ashamed that my "junker" fox can compete with some of these cars because it's what I can afford and built. I get what you're saying because that's what an uneducated person would say, get you one of them there foxes and throw money in it and outrun xxx vehicle in question. Different strokes for different strokes I guess, but I enjoy and like my fox. If you can't go out and buy the new flavor of the week car then be happy with what you've built and have fun. Respect the newer cars for what they can do with all the new technology power they have but don't shit on the lower guy who built his car and can hang with these new cars. I like everything fast, just not in that point in my life where I can go out and buy a competitive car from the showroom so I have to continue making the one I can afford be somewhat competitive. It's all in good fun anyways, some people just take it too serious.
Man, you took something we said, twisted it into something we didn't say, then gave us grief about something we didn't say. Re-read our posts in context...
A $5K fox body beater can be made faster than a Demon for way less money.
All factory performance cars are a waste. Just build up some old piece of crap for cheaper.
...Plus, you're aren't gonna take a 9 second fox body on a 2,000 mile road trip and expect to be even remotely comfortable...
No one said anything negative about the platform. If you think that is "shitting" on the Fox platform, you may want to consider therapy.
