Buy Ford stock with the money and forget you own it till you retire ...

(Not a Ford fan but by far the best managed US auto maker)

Then get a job and borrow (or save up) for investment in your ride..

My two cents...
But what do I know ????

Are you the top of your class? That's worth another $2500.00. Wait are you in High School ?:poke: Good luck an education worth a lot more or use to be. G.E stock has been on the skids for years it has to turn around sooner or later. They go in and supply the electrical after we blow it up in other countries I know I've been a dist. for thirty years and we buy the surplus.

for $1500 i dont think you can supercharge it.... you could get a 383 stroker kit but you will have to disassemble everything and get the block clearanced for the bigger crank, so that might be cutting it close if your just going to throw in a bigger crank and thats it. i think efi would be cool but then that iroc would be awesome i want one too hahah for my graduation i got over 2k but i bought another car, my 1990 4runner and i still have it... ive put a lot of money in it and about 30k miles in 3 years, i love the thing to death

if you can get the iroc do it... if not save the money until you get enough for one

I say work on the engine you have with either the 1500 or 2500. Whats the use of having 2 projects? You'll be right back at square 1 with 2 cars to work on instead of 1 car to pamper.
Your second option is to invest. Personally I'd invest in Apple stocks.

well not saying he cant... but i wouldnt buy any apple stock right now... its almost at $600 a share and back in december it was less than $400 a share.... plus with about $1500 he would only be able to buy 3 shares MAYBE.... go for the iroc lol nothing better than waking up in the morning and asking yourself "what should i drive today"

Face book is going IPO soon but you won't be able to touch it only the big boys. I sure wish they had computers like today when I was a kid.:secret: If I were you save it till you get enough to do what you want all at once. Nothing like all the hidden cost like tax, oil, filters, ect. ect. ect.:let_it_all_out:

All I can say is pick the right Iroc(t-tops) if you can find one. They're a collectors item.

You have some nice people that you are surrounded by. I wish I got $300 much less 1500.

Do you plan to go to college? If the elky is running save the money because beer isn't cheap.

and two projects is not fun.
