RE: Favorite cars?
That looks like it would be a blast to drive! You ever try taking it to a auto cross event?

Also, I should add for clarification, I love trucks, I'm just too broke to own one so I talk crap instead haha

Haha I bet it was. My first car was a 92 Lincoln town car that my uncle has practically destroyed so we got it off him for $500. It was pretty terrible in the winters as well.

My first car was a 1987 Ford 150 with limited slip. With a bit of weight in the box, it was great in snow.

RE: Favorite cars?
Mine was a 1966 Buick Grand Sport. It had a 400CU muscle driving a 4 speed trans to a 4.01 to 1 read end. Tack read 4,000RPM at 70MPH and about 6 GPM. It was dangerous on a wet road. It never miss a beat from a dead idle in 4 gear to 7400RPM. 7450RPM would cause the hyd. lifters to collapse.

I love picking on the chevy SS396 Chevelles, OLDS 442s and the Judges.. The biggest problem was the front drum brakes and stopping it.

RE: Favorite cars?
When I can afford a project car, my first choice would be a '70-'72 442. I just really like the body lines.

RE: Favorite cars?
I'm developing an interest in an older VW Beetle; simplicity at its best. Of course, I know nothing about restoration, so I'd probably have to spend a few more bucks on one that runs and/or in good shape. When I lived in Germany, my dad drove them by preference. Nothing like the smell of gas fumes coming into the cabin. Took some longer trips in it, too. I'd just want it to putz around in.

I remember the old VW's with the pipe like rear bumpers. During the winter as kids we would skitch (at a stop sign we snuck up held on to the back of cars in the snow) The VW's bumpers were always a treat to us, we could hold on to those for blocks at a time. If I saw a kid doing that today I'd probably call the police ASAP. Boy were we stupid as kids back then, but it was a heck of a lot of fun.

RE: Favorite cars?
Well... My favorite as a kid were the 65-67 GTO. Picked up a '67 about 9 years ago. The first year '64's are sweet but so pricy now.

Picked up a '68 Cougar XR7 just because you don't really see them often. Essentially a mustang with a longer wheelbase. It was somewhat an impulse buy but couldn't resist the price.

BTW: if anybody knows of a nearby shop that works on old Ford Toploader transmissions, please let me know. Haven't driven the XR7 in 3 years and needs a full trans rebuild. There was a guy/shop here in Lake Villa, but he packed up and retired to FL. =(

Top to get list - mostly nostaligic and the cars that were part of my teens:

1. 1987-88 Pontiac Grand Am (2door) in Maroon/Burgandy red - This was my first car and would love to find one in decent shape. It's a piece of crap, but I drove this thing to death. Lots of memories.

2. '86 - '90 - Foxbody Mustang GT 5.0 -- Car I always wanted as a teen.

3. '85-'89 Iroc 5.7 - Again a nostalgic car from my teens.

4. Mitsubishi Starion/Conquest - Had this car for awhile before my girlfriend at the time blew the motor. Quick little 4 banger with turbo.

5. Yugo - I know... you're thinking WTF? They were junk when they came out, and still junk, but such an oddball car .. Would love to find one in decent shape.

6. 1978 Buick Lesbare - first new car my parents bought. I snuck it out when I was 13 and crashed it.

7. M35a2 (deuce) - How cool would it be to have one parked in the driveway. =)

So this is my top realistic "to get" cars.


If money were no object cars - win the Powerball cars:


1. 50's era Mercdes 300 sl gullwing
2. '70 Hemi Cuda - I can only dream!!
3. '57 corvette
4. Shelby Cobra - year? Who cares. It's a shelby Cobra!!!
5. Bugatti Type 57 - something Darth Vader would drive. Actually.. would probably have to win the powerball twice to get this one.
6. Ferrari 250GT - probably the most classic lines of any car I've seen. work of art!
7. Copo Camaro - Gotta at least have 1 Coppo
8. GT40 - so ahead of it's time.

I hear ya. These cars are iconic. Still reasonably priced and tons of parts/community.

RE: Favorite cars?
That's a heck of a list 140! Some of your ones like your grand am fit your first car makes me kinda rethink wanting to get rid of the first bike that I bought... It's a '96 CBR900RR. Not too common, but powerful and one of the first of its kind. More importantly first one I bought!

My buddy has a early 2000's f-350 7.3 that's lifted with stacks ect.. He loves it, but only got to drive it about 3 months before the motor blew.. I'm hoping he gets the cash soon for the new motor!
