    Your favorite car, period. (A variation on DJ's birth year car thread)

    Well, on the heels of DIRTJUNKIE’S cool thread on our favorite cars from the year of our birth, I thought I would further that with…..

    Your favorite car, ever. Period.

    If you could own one of your dream cars as your “toy” that you didn’t have to rely on for transportation, didn’t have to buy it, didn’t have to insure it or pay for any fuel, what car would it be?

    I’ll get it started…….

    Porsche 959:


    One of the most amazing cars ever produced. So fast, so good, and so rare. I learned about this car in high school after reading an article in Motor Trend on it in about 1988. I ended up making an advertisement for a marketing class I was taking for the 959 with the tag line “Warning: This car is to be driven the way it was meant to be driven……FAST!” Of course I aced the assignment, but from then on, I have always dreamed of just driving one of these amazing pieces of engineering and pure driving passion.

    I have to add a 2nd (and probably more realistic for me):


    My best buddy owns one, and I actually sold a few back in my car sales days. I know, pretty boring to most of you, but this is really one of the most underrated cars produced. A supercharged 4.6L V8 that sounds so beautiful with that supercharger whine. For a car that you can buy right now for around $20,000 for a really nice one, that 395 HP goes a long way! I drove my buddy’s Cobra a few months ago, and was absolutely blown away. Something about a supercharged motor that a naturally aspirated car or even a turbo just can’t match. Instant GO!

    So, what is your dream car? Post it up! Let’s see what everyone will drive after the zombie apocalypse occurs, assuming you are still alive!

    Too many to list..How's this for starters a million dollar car in today's money.
    Alright a 71' HEMI CUDA' 4 - speed black on black on black convertible with elastomic color coded bumpers and color coded grill, shaker and leather. Rear spoiler and front chin spoilers and color coded mirrors with a Rim Blow steering wheel and wood grained Rally gauge cluster and console.. My all time favorite having once owned a 71' CUDA' 340 auto. The blue car is identical in color and hood design to the one I had. Take note of where the rear exhaust comes out of the rear valance.

    Oh and the gills in the front fenders and the Barracuda teeth [cheese grader] grill with dual headlights are 1971' CUDA only. Along with the rear two peice taillights. The lower performance cars with smaller V8's were called Barracudas from 70' to 74'. But the high performance cars with larger V8's they called CUDA's. 70' and 71' being the best years with all motor options.
    Those two years had these motor options.
    Barracuda
    Straight 6 cylinder
    318 V8
    383 V8

    CUDA motor options
    340
    340 six pack only on 1970' AAR CUDA' six pack means 3 two barrel carbs.
    440 four barrel
    440 Six Pack
    And the big daddy
    426 HEMI' dual quad, meaning 2 four barrel carbs.

    In photo picture the front bumper black like the car. And grill would be black. Those are options from that year. They were called elastromic covered color coaded bumpers. And make it a convertible. Other than that it's dead on.

    I'm afraid of heights so a 26'r fits me to a T.

    Get real, get Mopar. 68 Hemi dart or barracuda, know the right people you can pick one up at the factory door


    People actually restore them to look like that

    My favorite American muscle has long been a 67 SS. The 69 was nice but lacked a certain something.

    1996 McLaren F1 LM

    The first supercar to break the magic 240mph barrier. If I ever win the lottery - I'll be on a mad hunt for this rare(only 98 exist), $2million car:

    Bigger hammer theory. And not one of those effeminate Factory Five cars either.

    Not me. This is the Wifey's ride....and yeah, that supercharger, when wound up, will scare people as you fly by. They just don't know what's happening, or what they're hearing, and they probably think a Jet is low-flying by!

    BTW, my dream car would be a 69 Dodge Charger with a 426.

Two engines meant two of virtually everything in the cockpit related to the operation of the car, including two cable-operated shifters, two tachometers, two sets of oil pressure and temperature gauges and even two accelerator pedals. Additional power was provided via a Cragar Equipment-modified 6-71 GMC supercharger atop each engine, each burning a blend of nitromethane and alcohol. Weight was reduced through the use of aluminum body components and Plexiglas windows. The result was

    a 2400-horsepower, four-wheel-drive exhibition
    drag racer which smoked its front and rear tires
    down the length of the race track with times in the
    eleven-second range."

    a pic of the rear

    Hey I was right it's a 67' Hurst Olds just slighty more modified.
    I can't believe I didn't notice the front wheel burn out. That's one INSANE machine!
