    so my brother in law is lookin for a car...its gonna be his daily and he wants this one, whatcha guys think?



    personally, i think its not gonna be good as a daily but would be an awesome second car...I'm tryin to talk him into a Cobra or Mach 1, but he really wants a Fox.

    nice car, very clean. i love notches. Now is it a practical daily driver.. no, but is it a badass daily driver... hell yes. id like to have a 10 sec dd. now a cobra or mach 1 would be more practical and they are badass but it would be 2x the money. Is money an issue or not?

    well i can see why he wants it...its a bad ass looking ride and im sure that it flys too so hes being influenced by that tell him to realistically think about driving that car everyday....i dont think the car was probley built to be ran long distances all the time but then again i really cant see all whats done to it...but the cage leads me to belive its got the power to back it up since in my area a cage is required for anything faster then a 11.49 so to me thats not a fun dd car....to much work and stuff to be using it to get grocerys

    I'm thinking that's one high maintenance daily driver. Looks more like a weekend warrior to me. Go with the Mach1.

    it looks like he's got n20 hooked up to it so that would concern me a little. if they use it alot it normally shortens the engine life.

    Notches have really grown on me in the last couple years. I would love to have a turbo'd notch one day.

    Badass car but a little ridiculous for a daily driver.

    its a 347 stroker with some juice and a c4. says it is a 10 sec street car. I dunno about that stock block though. Definately not a sensible dd but since when are we sensible around here about "too much" power??? ;D

    Hello,

    It's surely possible to find another coupe LX, whit less mods at a good price.

    I think the Mach 1 is a much better car, but it's around $20,000.00, IMO it's possible to find a clean LX 5.0 L whit low mileage for $10,000.00.
