a dream car would have to possess the comfort of a Benz, do 0-60 in 3-seconds, 1/4 mile in 10-seconds, have a top speed of 200 MPH, and pull at least 1.5 G's on street tires.
A MB Mc Laren SLR is getting there ;)

In the early '50s Kaiser actually had a few thousand of these built in Japan as part of a deal to kickstart Japan's industrial production after WWII.

Finally! I found a stock unmolested Henry J

Cute little car with a 161 cu in (2.6 L) L-head six-cylinder engine producing 80 hp. The engines were supplied by Willys-Overland; the same guys making CJ-3A Jeeps at that time. Three-speed with electric overdrive. (3 on the tree).
The Henry J was also built and available in Japan from 1951 to 1954, through a licensing deal with Mitsubishi. You could also buy them through the Sears catalog.
This one is completely stock except for the electric system modified from 6v to 12v.
Do I really want to swap a 7mgte into this one?
