For me it would be a:

 

65 Hemi Coronet with 4 spd,

mid 80's Shelby Omni GLHS, (had one and want it back, after I modified it, it was a rocket ship on rails!!!!!)

68 440 Dart, (had a 69 that was never finished and would like another)

60's Convertable XKE jag. (best looking convertable I've ever laid eyes on!!!)

65 GTO to go with the 04 GTO we already have.

This topic is something I kinda live in real 1-1. I have always looked at cars from a tool perspective. Thus, I already have a goofly portion of the five I'd need to make this list. They are, in no particular order:
 
Dodge Ram 2500 pick up. I've got to have some thing for around the home / yard projects that require the moving of large and or dirty items.
 
Dodge Grand Caravan. Perfect for family vacations.
 
Porsche 944. Got to have a sports car! This one is one of the best handling cars ever made, looks great, is built like a tank, and gives good mileage when traveling the interstate.
 
Now for the ones I don't have to complete the list of five.
 
Volkswagen R32. The perfect golf. All wheel drive and an amazing V6. Perfect for the Dan Ryan in Chicago in any weather!!
 
Last but certainly not least..... the wife should have a daily driver that is fun. For her, my choice is a Mini Cooper S.
 
Yeah, I could live with these for the rest of my life.

I really like your list the best for practical purposes. I really think kind of like you, here are our tools; 1. 2000 Beetle for me ( I'm retired so it will last a long time), 2. 1970 Beetle for me to have a project, 3. 2010 Toyota Prius for her daily commute ( it makes her happy), 4. 1980 MGB so she has a toy, 5. 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan R/T (The Man Van) for family trips. I do miss having a pickup but, it probably gets me out of a lot of work not having one. I could live with this list, oh yeah I already am.

Cool ! Thanks for sharing your story and the accompanying photos !

LOVE that base interior ; those plaid inserts are too cool .

 

Its drag-car-since-day-one history undoubtably saved its carcass from the oxidation monster known as Road Salt !

 

Just out of curiosity ; what's up with that radiator ? Not knocking it , I just thought your friend was going for a restoration :)

John, the rad was a necessity, the old 26 inch 3 core was good but after a while Andy was having issues with overheating on hot days, the aluminum rad was only $50 more than a aftermarket factory style rad but runs the Duster much cooler.

Cars I'd want to own for this exercise:

 

1.  A '32 Ford roadster pickup.  Traditional style rod (I don't dare say rat rod here) with interesting 50s V8, maybe a nail head.

 

2.  1953 Ford pickup

 

3.  New Mini Convertible for me - yellow, 6 speed

 

4.  New Dodge Grand Caravan in that metallic orange color  for family transport

 

5.  New Dodge Dart for the wife

 

 

Cars I currently own:

 

1. 1996 Dodge Caravan Mark III High top

 

2. 1991 Geo Tracker LSI Convertible w/ 5 speed and a/c

 

3. 2000 Jaguar S Type, red with 29,000 miles

 

4. 1995 Celica Convertible

 

Heck, I actually like my cars, so I wouldn't mind keeping the Jag and upgrading the rest with better cars or having them restored.

I've thought long and hard about how I'd answer this thread, so here I go.

 

1)  1941 Willy's coupe. ( This would be my Sunday Drive in the country car. It would just be great to drive the backcountry roads in this car. And it would be totally stock. )

 

2) 1968 Mustang Fastback ( My day to day after work driver. )

 

3) 1976 AMC Gremlin. ( This would be my daily drive to work car. As long as I can have my Sirius Satillite radio. )

 

4) 1970 Daytona Super Bird  ( Painted Petty Blue, this I'd use as my Friday or Saturday night crusier. )

Last but not least,

 

5) 1973 Ford Pantera ( My hockey hero Tim Horton drove one ( he also died in his Pantera in a one car rollover accident driving back to Buffalo from a game in Toronto. This would be my second Friday or Saturday night crusier car. )

Like someone else said,I would like to have some vehicles that I used to own. All would be concours.

 

My first car and one I don't see: 1967 Mercury Cougar small V8 w/auto trans

 

1966 (or 67) Dodge Charger  with a 440 and 4 speed

 

1967 Corvette Coupe 427 w/4 speed

 

one I didn't own: 1970 Plymouth SuperBird Hemi w/4 speed

 

Last would be one of the original three Corvette Grand Sport coupes.

 

My daily driver (and I'd keep it since I have to pay for repairs) a 1984 Volvo 244
