Default Sleepers!

What do you think makes the best sleepers?

My list:

Buick Grand National
Impala SS
Crown Vic P71
GMC SyTy
Chevrolet 454SS (and it's [slower] Lightning competitors)
Silverado SS
Mercury Marauder
Any S-truck with a V8
Buick Regal GS
Bonneville SSEi
El Camino 454/396/350SS


In no particular order.

Oh, and i forgot, anything with lots of vtaks is an awesome sleeper too.

The best possible would be either a 80's Camry with a LS motor(seen this still had OEM 14X5.5 wheels and P195/70r14 tires).

Or if someone would build a Focus with the 351 that didn't sound like it.

Any pickup truck. They're expected to have a V8, so the rumble won't tip anyone off, and they can put down a lot of torque without any issues.

Because people automatically think wallpaperpaste when you say "camry". The 80s models were RWD if I remember correctly, so the V8 won't go to waste.

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

Your thinking Corrola actually. (AE86) was the most notorious. A very common drift car.

Truthfully I never drove one, I know they got the torque to burn off tires pretty easy
but donít know about speed.

From what I understand the police used both a 5L and 5.7L engines.
