1.) 2003 silver birch Mercury Marauder (I already owned one and never should have sold it)
2.) Any SSJ Duesenberg, I would be happy no matter the color.
3.) 2004 Lincoln Towncar, last of the real Towncars before Lincoln decontented them.
4.) 2012 Toyota 4Runner for the wife and kids.
5.) Chrysler Airflow coupe.
That's should do it for the next fifty years of my life.

Hmm...

 

An LT-1 Roadmaster or Caprice wagon in better shape than the one I have now (or just to get the '94 I'm driving cleaned up and looking good and running exactly as it should be again).

 

Assuming I keep what I have now and I get five more options...

A 2010-11 Lincoln Town Car

A step-down Hudson

A Forward Look Chrysler product

A Studebaker Starliner

A Chevy Silverado ExtendCab 4x4 in nice trim, equipped for towing so that even thought I got some toys for free, I can still go get more and tow the Airstream. Our local dealer had one in a pretty metallic red with the cashmere leather interior. That'll do nicely.

1. '62 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubbletop with 409 and Manual transmission. Dogdish hubcaps and steelies with very high profile tires. One of the most beautiful cars ever made.

bubble700-2.jpg

 

2. '60 Chevrolet Impala HardTop with 348 W-Block and TriPower. My dad has one, with 283 SBC and Powerglide though, but it's very nice car and I'd like to have one with the W-Block. It would be with same kind of tires and wheels as the '62 Bubbletop.

3. '63 Chevrolet Impala Z-11 Stocker with 427 Mystery Motor and Manual transmission. It would be my Race Car here, one of the nicest cars ever made, too.

sucp_0707_01_z+1963_z11_impala+front_rig

 

4. '71 Buick GSX Stage One with 455 Big Block. Yellow paint of course. I guess this is pretty clear choice, maybe nicest Buick ever produced.

5. '79 Jeep Wagoneer. This would be a car for the Winter here in Finland.

...And currently I'm just waiting for the Driver's License age, but meanwhile I'm driving a '80 Tunturi Trial.
