    My dream car would be Ferrari F40, dem turbos.
    Realistically though I would have to build my dream car, something along the lines of Boba Motoring VW Golf.

    I've been looking around, and it seems like a Datsun 280Z might not be a bad investment for a classic car if someone is interested in getting something that will appreciate in value. The nostalgia for the older Datsuns is going up, and that means collectors will be willing to pay more. Plus, it's a pretty fun car to drive around too.

    Not as much of a fan of old vehicles but I like new ones alot. Especially bikes. Currently own a late 2007 Kawasaki KLE500.

    though i am more railway and steam, i do have a love for older motor cars like the Austin 7, Austin 8, Rolls Royce silver ghost (or any Rolls Royce for that matter), etc. Theres something about the look and design of the older models that has a much better appeal than those seen on modern vehicles. Even old Lorries like the scammell scarab have a certain charm to them, i'd say. May not be cheap or economical, but its the pride of ownership and owning a piece of history that drives you (unintentional i swear) to keep "the old girl" running.

    Cars like that are just a little old for me (I like the 60's and 70's the most), but I can totally see the appeal behind the humble lil' Austin Seven. :D

    I also favour 60' and 70'. Though I forget the name of some examples. Only ones that come to mind are the Triumph herald and Spitfire, Ford Anglia, the Reliant Robin/Regal (dispite their laughably silly looks:D) and the Leyland mini.

    Heh... The infamous Reliant Robin comes to mind, eh? Lol....
    But, yeah. The Minis were excellent cars, and the Anglias represent the decade too. Oh! And I like Spitfires. Especially in Amaranth Purple.

    *raises his tiny paw* Loved working on my mitsubishi lancer, until it decided to just...explode one day. Now I am saving up for a new car. :\

    I love vintage cars! My first car was a "69 Olds Cutlass. It was so rusted out that I sold it for $250 and bought a "74 VW Beetle. Gutless wonder , but I still loved it (42 HP). Everyone on the road smoked me until it snowed. The engine and transmission sat right on top of the drive wheels, and it basically drove like a snowmobile. That little car could drive through 18" of snow like nothing!

    Oh cool, was it by any chance an Evo?
    Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice! I love old Cutlasses. What color was it?

    It was burgundy underneath, but covered with red primer to hide all the Bondo. It was a base model F-85 with a 250 straight six and a two speed auto. The only option it had was Positraction.

    And, that's why I love the 60's so much; You were able to choose all of the options you wanted for your car individually instead of being to forced to pick between 3 or 4 trim levels.

    I would have been an amazing base for a custom build if it hadn't been rusted beyond repair. It wasn't expensive like a 442 since it was a base model. If I ever won the lottery I'd have Chip Foose build me a '69 Cutlass.

    Wow... Foose himself... And, it'd be interesting seeing a Cutlass done by him, since we've seen plenty of custom Mustangs, Camaros and Chargers already.

    I searched and it looks like he's done a few already. www.pinterest.com: foose designs

    Looks like he's done a couple '68s and a '72. The '69 was a one-year-only design (as was the '68). Its still my favorite year of Cutlass ever.

    >long overdue reply

    Nah was an ES. I hit so much shit with my car and it just took it like a man who takes things badassfully.

    Even hit a guy in a wheelchair even though the police said he hit me and not the other way around
