I owned all mine already, but like a fool, sold them for silly reasons. [:(]

I guess I'd like to duplicate my 71 convertible Mustang. 351 Cleveland 4 BBL motor, 4 speed, factory 9" 411 detroit locker rear, functional Ram Air hood, and every other Mach 1 option.

What a ride! I wish I could find my old pictures of it. I had it painted by an old Hell's Angel on Long Island, and he did a super job. His specialty was air brushed motorcycles. Named it "Hurry Sundown" after the Outlaws song by the same name.

A '66 GTO. Or a '69 MACH I. Or a '69 Z28. Or a '65 GALAXY 500. Or a '70 CUDA. Remember when cars had personality?
Link Posted: 4/25/2001 8:02:50 PM EDT
Changes every five minutes.  For all out I would probably say a Ferrari 550 Maranello, or maybe the new convertible one.  Or a mid sixties 330 GTS.  Saw one at a car show last year, I think they paid over two large for it. Beautiful car though.

Realistic:  I think a mid sixties, non # matching corvette convertible, with at 327 and the factory side pipes. That or I've always wanted a Bimota.

Wife just bought her German dream car last weekend.  She is the breadwinner after all.

I try to aim realistically.  I want a Black on black 2002 Corvette Coupe, with black tinted windows of course.
Only about 50 grand totally loaded.
But, as with Corvettes, there is always room for improvement.  You'll need another 10 to 20 grand to make it a true speed machine!

I like a race car you can drive every day.  The Viper is nice, but isn't really made for an every dayer.  Built to race!

1965 Shelby GT-350R (only 37 built)

1965 Shelby GT-350 street version with crager wheel and le mans stripe options.

Any year Shelby 427 S/C Cobra (hell even a kit car will do)

1991 white Saleen sedan (okay, I already have that one but its the easiest out of the list.)

I also could live with a 1969 Boss 429, 1969 Boss 302, and maybe a C.O.P.O. or ZL-1 Camaro just to give the general his due.

And the list goes on and on.........

Went with the at least somewhat realistic response of the '03 Z last time, so now I figure I better add the real dream car..

As much as I like the Viper GTS, I'd have to go with a black BMW M5.  400hp, ONLY comes with a 6 speed manual.  I'm in love.
