Cars!
 
So what cars are special to you? Your first car? Your favorite? Your dream car?

My first car was a 1967 MGB. Some day I would like to buy another and restore it.

My dream car: Ford GT. My father had a Fiberfab Avenger when we were kids. It was a VW based kit car modeled after the GT 40. The cool factor was off the charts.

My dream car would be based on this

My first car was a 1969 Ford Fairlane 500 wagon I got for $200. Drove the wheels of of it. Literally. That ended that relationship. Second one was my grandmother's 1965 Falcon. That ended up in the wrecker as well (but I beat the reckless driving and unsafe vehicle charges by sending the car to its demise). Had a few others at the time. A 1973 Dodge Monaco Highway Patrol car with the 440 Police Interceptor (or was it Police Special for Dodge?), a 1976 Austin Healey Sprite, a 1957 Austin 7 (or a Mini as most would call it), a 1974 Fiat 850 Spyder, a 1964 Beetle, a 1964 Ranchero (still have that one). There were many more over the years. I seem to collect them. Currently I have around 15 in the motor pool, but only 5 or so currently run.

As to dream cars? The Ford GT40 is right up there at the top of the list, along with a 427 Cobra. That, too, is a long, long list. I have been very fortunate to have worked on and/or driven many very fine cars over the years, including some very rare and exotic cars. I think that in some ways has whetted my desire for them. At the same time, I am not in a high enough tax bracket to be able to afford the fine stuff. But kits will do as far as the GT40 and Cobra are concerned, as long as I can build them up myself and do all of the mods that really need to be done in order to make them fully enjoyable (the originals leave a great deal to be desired). That is unless you were to give me one of the new production GT40's. Those are pretty much the ultimate build right from the factory.

My first car was a 1940 Ford Coupe Deluxe.. Never really got to drive it, somebody stole my carbs.. :( :mad:

My two favorites are my IH's a '73 1110 Stepside Pickup and my '73 Scout II .... Although my little Rampage is starting to grow on me (Its the only small car Ive ever liked... )

(My Scout...)

Those DeLoreans are real turds. But knowing you love IH you would also love a DeLorean.:p

Oh, and what happened to the '40 Ford? That would have definitely been a keeper for me.

If I had the bucks I'd have this guy build me a copy of the car A.J. Foyt drove when he won the 1964 Indy 500: www.Babineaumetalworks.com
