Just been dreaming...figured I'd share some of my all-time favorites.


1937 Cord 812


1957 Chevy Bel Air - 2 door hardtop


1969 Chevy Corvette - 427/435

Cool thread that I bet will get a lot of pix. I like your choices, especially the Cord. Classy. I don't have time to link to pictures, but for me the no-holds-barred car list would be topped by the BMW Z8. Saw that one at an auto show and it was stunning.

Like Ken, I also like the Ferraris and would love an old Magnum PI early 1980s red 308GTSi. Didn't like the Testarossa's styling, but the newer ones like the 1990s Modena and the new California are sweet.

I went to high school with a guy whose dad still owns a 57 Bel Air convertible. Not quite as nice as the one in the picture above, but still nice.

I have a deep respect for the real classics like those listed above, but in my heart, I am still a sports car guy.

I've got a few all time favorites.

1973 DeTomaso Pantera


Any year Dodge Viper (love to own, but I would get killed trying to drive this beast. This is also my wife's favorite sports car.)



I always keep a special place in my heart for my dad's car. He sold it to get a station wagon for "us kids." If I could afford it, I'd buy him one again.
1967 Pontiac Firebird Convertible (his had a black top/interior)


A couple of recent favorites of mine....

The Ariel Atom


And since I liked Lamborghini's since before most people even knew what they were, why not throw in the best of them all...

Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4

Is the Atom street legal? I have wanted one ever since seeing that Top Gear segment!

Likewise the '57 Chevy. That was my Dad's car.

Out of the cars pictured the '57 and the '67 Firebird would probably be my first choices *but* if I had the m-o-n-e-y, this would be my ride...

Here are some of my favs:


Ford GT40


I prefer the older Corvettes. Here's a '63 Stingray


The lines on the '67 Mustang Fastback exude power and cool.


Okay, don't laugh, but the VW Bug is one of my favorites. Over the years it has come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. No matter what you do to it, there will always be an underlying charm to the car. I drove a '69 Bug for close to 10 years. Still wish I had it.

The Ariel Atom IS street legal. I'd just be afraid of getting run over by some SUV.

Nice call on the GT40. I like the classic/original color scheme, but alas, I would need one of the ones from just a couple of years ago as the original was made for some really short drivers. Anyone over about 5'2" would bump their head when shutting the door.

I like the GT-500 (Eleanor) Mustang Fastback similar to the one above too!

Hey Rick, I think that you missed the title of this thread... \:\) "Dream Cars" Maybe it should be "Dream Rides" then you boat would fit in nicely!

I certainly wouldn't turn down a '63 vette either!

\:D True.


My Dad had a '57 Corvette. He sold it right before he left for Vietnam. I guess it goes without saying he wishes he still had it.
