Looks vs. Performance

Dunno if this poll has ever been made before, but I wanted to see what everyone felt.
Considering that the truck would be a daily driver and used for all needs possible (i.e.- towing, daily use, etc). What would you rather have (moneys no object to achieve your dream)?

A) A truck that looks like it came out of a magazine at all times. Your preference, lifted, lowered, wheels, tires, tint, custom grille, stereo, hand stitched interior, you name it! Full blown show winner!

OR

B) A truck that can pull up and spank anything you look at. Face shifting kind of power, low 12s at the push of a pedal and 10s with the bottle mixed in, smack down 1000+ on the dyno, roast tires through all gears, pull in any sports car you can think of and watch them disappear!

I was going to add a C and have "best of both" but I don't think it'd be fair. This is a one or other type of poll. If you had to go down a one way road, which one would you take and why?

well? what would you rather have in your drive way?
of course... it's a Ford to begin with in this poll

Re: Looks vs. Performance

I picked looks. I would rather have a nice clean truck that I could be proud of. Now it may not be the fastest lil effer around but it gets what I need done and it looks good doin it. 10k in performance vs 10k in custom mods can take you two different ways.

Re: Looks vs. Performance

Tough call for me! I'm gonna go ahead and say looks as long as I could have just an exhaust(for looks and sound). The power would be fun, but daily driver reliability would be iffy. This should be a fun thread!

Re: Looks vs. Performance

Thats a hard choice. I'd like a truck that looks good but can throw down some good numbers and smoke anyone on the road.

Re: Looks vs. Performance

How about this? If you go all performance, could you use factory Ford parts to enhance appearance? Such as Harley heads and grille? Or maybe powder coat the stock wheels or something? Just a thought...

Re: Looks vs. Performance

Ok- giving it some thought, I like what was said above. You'd achieve your goal, looks or performance, and you'd have about 1 to 2 grand to dabble with the other choice.
Might as well have made an option C lol! But I'm leaving it at an A and B choice! Make it more fun!
