OK if I win the lottery I'd get a Nissan skyline r34. Next I would perform these upgrades: brand new custom chassis, maybe a custom straight 8 cylinder engine. Twin compound turbos, race suspension, race sequential gearbox, nismo bodyshell with a top secret rear wing. Unrealistic I know but that's why its called dream cars...

1969 Ford mustang, 1972 Gran Torino or a pimped up K5 Chevrolet Blazer.

Muscle cars for the win.

Muscle cars are nice but my skyline would smoke them all :)

And that's the advantage of cars based around solid lumps of metal with extremely powerful engines, you turn, I don't ;)

Are you referring to the notoriety muscle cars have gained for being aweful at turning?

That is understandable but let me enlighten you with these situations. Snow, ice, rain, shopping.

I've never had a huge fascination in Japanese 'tuner' cars, not my kind of thing, never really understood the point.

Muscle cars I do get though :P

 

If t had to be just one, I'd probably go for a Lamborghini miura, one of the later ones or an SV/J.

 

I hope to god that no one mentions a 911.

I and my friends used to feel the same, then we started driving.

I love a bike as much as the next guy, but rain and snow isn't fun, and commuting in that weather is just a PITA.

Would rather drive to the shops in the warmth, dump my shopping in the back and drive home dry and warm. Screw trodding around in wet clothes, then having to put them back on again before you leave. Nothing is 100% waterproof, and in -degrees you're going to be cold, unless you dress like the Michelin man, and that's not really comfortable.

 

Give me a sports bike, and a nice sunny dry day then i'm the happiest man around.

 

How come no-ones doing pictures??? Dream car thread, but no car porn. Disappointing.

 

Would have to have one of these:

Ferrari_458_Spider.jpg

 

Although I "might" have found myself a placement job, so my plan on getting one of these may happen this year:

The s2000 is quite nice, one of the few japanese cars I actually like :lol:

Not so much of a fan of the 458 though, its nice and all but Ferrari is too much of the obvious choice for me.

Too tactical, and the police may become interested once you accidentally fire the crazy amount of weapon systems on the Tumbler :D

I'll get a photo of mine up later this weekend when It's back from the garage.

1991 Mazda MX5 Jap import in red. sweet little car.

 

It's not a ferrari, nor a lambo, nor does it have dead smooth ride of a rolls royce. But it just doesn't matter. You can only go as fast as the car in front on most of the entertaining roads around here and with the sun out, roof down, music blaring, mate beside you it doesn't matter that you didn't quite clip the apex of that corner or that the dash is a little plasticy- it's the experience that makes the car.

 

Always thought I'd want a lambo/something daft, I've realised in the last 4 weeks of owning the MX5 that it isn't the car. It's the driver ;)

 

Having said that.

A big ol' Gran Torino would be nice, or a Lancia Stratos :D

Dream car?

1964 Aston Martin DB-5. Silver-birch paint. Black leather interior, brown leather covers on the controls. Probably the most beautiful car I've ever laid eyes on. Real work of art.

I'd accept that I would have to have some modifications - new tyres, brakes, suspension, airbag and seat-belts, simply to make it pleasant and safe to drive.

 

Actually, forget the modifications to make it drivable. It'd probably never leave the garage, due to me religiously polishing it :lol:

 

If I was to pick more recently designed car, probably again go with Aston. DBS, V12. Carbon black. Again, it's one of the few cars that I think looks amazing.
