mine is the mustang that steven segal drove in the movie, marked for death. that was a sweet car if ever i saw one. what is your fav.?
In 1977 My Uncle age 34 then, had a 67 427 AC Cobra in red.
I was 16 and had never saw one before, I did attend the Winternationals
and saw the Chevys ruled, or so I thought until I saw the Cobra and heard its thunderous roar, at night flames shot out the pipes, which were just below my head! That aluminum bodied car was so thin the pebbles off the Goodyear blue streaks made tiny bumps on the rear wheel wells.
The dors had latches one had to open and close before/after the doors closed or mess the thin door up! I slammed it once! as a passenger cars door! not again though! The seat belts were 3 inch wide belts that had a latch! not a clicker buckle type thing. The 4 speed stick was a short bent looking close ratio 4 spd that was almost irrelevant due to the explosive locomotive torque at any rpm in any gear!! in 1976 Turbo Carerras were Hot! We easily smoked them off, with him bogging it in 4th at 1300 rpms, that engine came alive, like a terrifying demon!
It truly was terrifying to be in that car at wide open throttle shifting hard through the gears! We routinrly hit 150-160 instantly almost leaving everything behind us even a 480 cu in boss 429 mustang w/12/1 comp built by earl wade!
I go for practicality more than vehicle appearance. My favorite is an '87 Chevy Cavalier I had. It would go in the snow when other bigger badder vehicles got stuck!
And when my son wrecked it one summer day taking a curve too short, he didn't get a scratch on him. Angels must've been watching over him. It had a bumper sticker on it which compelled my kids and their friends to call it the Jesus Mobile.
It was a beautiful blue; I'd love to have one again just like it!
P.S. Nice to meet you Lecie.
I loved that Cobra, but Im older now and appreciate safety, comfort
hearing normally, sweet stereo, adjustable seats, leather, airbags, anti lock, traction control, .29 cd aerodynamics etc.
My favorite car bar none, a total athlete of a vehicle, underated , forgotten really, as they never did sell or make more than 15 ,000
world wide in 9 yrs as the companys flagship.
A car that cost $94,000 in 1991 and BMW still lost $50,000 on each
one they did build, Rolls Royce used its engine for years as its V12!
on Youtube there are ones doing 188 mph for 55 miles on the autobahn!! outrageous video!! Its the 850i V12 coupe! The first factory car that came with 6 spd manual and V12~~ before Ferarri!
My 1963 Rambler Classic that sadly, is no longer still with me. I loved that car.
And no, I didn't just love it because of the "twin travel beds" as they were called, although it was nice the summer I lived in my car, travelling and sleeping in state parks.
Mine is a 1972 Ferrari Daytona Spyder 365 GTS/4. It was the original Sonny Crocket car in Miami Vice... I'd love to build a kit car like this one day.
This is the famous XK120.
It handles like a block of flats! Nice looking car though!
the Panhard et Levassor, so well built it would start and run by just tripping the magneto advance on the steering wheel.
I saw this first hand at the Harrah collection in Reno Nevada.
I think it was Panhard who when asked about the Rolls Royce motor, said that the Rolls had used gaskets, which he considered an excuse for poor engineering!
More than just a car, a beautiful work of art.
My most favorite car was an old 64 Vdub Beatle with an auto-shift transmission. Ugly as crap. bought it for 50 dollars from a guy that didn't know the only thing it needed was a 12 dollar diaphragm to fix the tranny. drove it till it fell apart.
I know I'm late but I still wanna put my two cents in...1969 Chevelle SS with a stock 350, upgraded K&N air filter, glasspac muffler going to a modified dual exhaust, and all done in an ultra irredescent blue paint job.
My new BMW, that my husband just bought me, because I quit smoking. It is dark navy blue, with camel color leather seats. It is fully loaded, with the personal steering wheel heater and all.
I love my new car, better than cigarettes. And I smoked for 27 years.
Mine's a Jaguar E type in red with black leather interior.
Black Corvette with T-top and turquoise glitter interior! Ahhh...great memories!
for domestic use, I love Honda
they provide so excellent features in their cars, specially the safety and environment friendly features are superb.
1968 Dodge Charter RT with a 426 Hemi engine. I fell in love with that car first by walking by a dodge dealership on the way home from High School. Then the movie "Bullit" came out with Steve McQueen. It had the all time best car chase up and down the hills of San Francisco. The bad guys drove the black Charger, and McQueen drove a 68 Mustang GT, it might have been a Shelby, I'm not sure.
Those cars are both worth a mint restored. But the Charger is by far, the coolest car I've seen.
It would have to be the very first car I ever owned. My 57 chevy belair. I had a blast driving that beauty all over Montreal and down south to Cape Cod and back up through Vermont.
I had a 1991 Dodge stealth which I sold to buy my home... I loved that car...
1982 DeLorean DMC-12. They were underpowered an inefficient, but boy do they stand out in a crowd. Kudos to John DeLorean for having the balls to do something different than the rest.
Have any of you heard or seen a car built in the 70's and 80's,
called the Clenet? It was beautiful.
I like too many cars to have a favorite. Such as:
Bugatti Veyron Super-sports
Morgan Aero Max 8
Aston Martin DBS9
...to name a few.

A family friend had donated a '34 Dodge for my use. It was my first car. I carried a case of motoroil in the back seat. After that came a Plymouth Coupe, used of course. About then I got to the Fords.A beautiful gray Ford Granada. 1988. They had kept it spotlessly, an elderly couple.Then I...

I just came home with my new sweeeeet ride. It's a 2008 Dodge Charger with a V6 3.5L engine (The Hemi was out of my price range *g*). I scoff in the face of high gas prices, yay!
