So many to choose from, it would have to be the Lamborghini Espada.  Performance, utility, and concept car looks, all in one drop dead gorgeous package.

1st Gen Charger. No question. So many cool design cues here that I fell in love with it even as a kid. I must have built a half dozen of the old MPC kits.

I currently own to '67 Chargers. People either love them or hate them. Can still be found for a reasonable price (compared to those from 68-70).

My favorite car that I owned was my 69 Dart.  My favorite car of all time is the Lamborghini Countach.

A 1969 Triumph Spitfire Mk. III in British Racing Green with the factory hard top. Just not as a daily driver.

I was fortunate to have one many years ago.

Realistically. An MK4 Supra in red, blue or silver. Perfectly stock.

Favorite current super car. Best looking Ferrari since the 360 Modena imo. The 488 GTB

That's a tough one!

 

Favourite car I've owned. Hmm...

The one I think about the most is my 1985 VW Transporter Double Cab. Definitely not stock! TDI swap, larger turbo, intercooler, regeared transmission, added power steering, H&R lowering springs, Bilsteins, Mercedes wheels, South African front end conversion, Westfalia swivel seats, Tristar sliding windows. I should never have sold this.

As for the cars I most want to own?

1992 Porsche 964 RS in Maritime Blue.

1969 Charger Daytona. I don't care what engine, or what colour.

As for a realistic dream car?

I am actively hunting for an old 70s station wagon. Ford, Plymouth, Mercury, Dodge. Doesn't matter. Woody preferred.

I've had a lot of different favorites over the years, but it always comes back to the '61 Oldsmobile Super 88 hardtop for me.

Why?

I don't know!

I just love the look of it!

1978-1980 Olds Cutlass, in any trim level so long as it's a 2 dr notchback. My first car was an 80 Cutlass Supreme. This is my Current 80 Cutlass Supreme.

Excellent choice as a friend of mine back in the 60's had one that was a bit higher in the rear and large balogna cut exhaust pipes exiting out the sides. It looked badass.

The only issue that I have with this generation of Charger is that every time I look at one, I think of one of these. ;)

We used to have a 78 in Cinnamon Metallic with body color Olds Rallye wheels, it was glorious. It had that oddball metric 200 automatic transmission and when it died we couldn't afford to fix it so we sold it.

 

My attainable dream car is the 92-00 Lexus SC. I've had two SC300s, a green 95 and a I just got a pearl white 98 about a month ago. I should have my wheels ordered in a week or two and once I get the spokes painted to match the body I'll get them mounted up.
