What's your dream car?

Recommended Posts

Even if not road legal and impossible to obtain, the 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO remains a masterpiece in term of design and engineering. More realistic but still unobtainable, the 1969 Shelby GT500.

My lease runs out next September and I'll probably downsize to a small electric, something to gad around town. But I'm getting on so if money wasn't a consideration I'd opt for comfort and prestige, a two door Bentley.

I'm a big fan of Mercedes Benz and this one is my favorite from that brand.

Also a big fan of the Porsche 918 Spyder

Love the 2nd photo off topic but it's on Valencia Spain, la ciudad de artes y ciencias, spent a while there. Miss it!

My dream car is rather pedestrian, at best, but it was my first and could time-transport me back to high school even now, lol,

Mine was a '71 Datsun 510, aka the poor man's BMW,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datsun_510

It could hold 9 people and all their ski gear (don't tell my dad).

It spent the last 6 months of it's life sitting in an unharvested corn field with it's back window smashed out - we were using it haul logs from the back 40 for firewood. In April of '81 it started up first try; I drove it to the wreckers and it clicked over the 280,000 mile mark on the way there. Many fond memories and close calls.

If you have the $$ to get them running right/preventative maintainence (timing belts, thrust bearing, engine fuel lines, etc.), they are sweet lil' machines that are built to eat up highway.  Here is mine.....

Also have one of these rigs for the winter.  Almost as fast as the 928 lol 

 

My dream car is newer versions of what I already have.  🙂

 If I could pick any car in the world, probably a Ford Tempo, old Dodge van, or a Lada 😍.

A Flat Black Ferrari F430.I never cared for the "bling" gloss brings to such elegance when it simply speaks for itself in its beauty. 

 

Just as I don't care for too much on the makeup ladies think they require for their natural beauty 🙂 while appreciated, not necessary.

@MelanieRose

Do those have associations or memories associated with them?  What are the elements that make them stand out for you?
