Not long ago mopardon posted his top five in a thread. I thought it might be interesting to see what other guys consider their dream cars. I'll give you my top 3 - trying to pick a couple more would take too long.

1. GT-E
2. '70 Boss 302 Eliminator
3. '68 Charger R/T

Good one.
1) 68 XR 7(my first car).
2) 68 Camaro SS 327(I know. It's a chevy.)
3) 70 Eliminator.

Just off the top of my head. I have several more that I could add. But if I won the lotto these would probably be
some of my first to dos.

So many cars, so few slots to fill :-/

In no particular order, since chances are slim that I'll actually have any of them...

'69 Mustang Mach 1, R-Code, 4-speed, Indian Fire, black interior (Mom's old car)
'70 Cougar Eliminator, 428CJ, Ram Air, 4-speed
'70 Mustang Mach 1, R-Code, 4-speed
'71 Torino Cobra, J-Code, 4-speed (grabber green metallic would be awesome)
'70 / '71 Torino GT Convertible, J-Code, 4-speed, hide-away headlights

Yeah, those are my current top 5. Although, if I had a few more slots to fill...

...a nice Italia Intermecchanica Spyder would be cool. Maybe park it next to my imaginary DeTamaso Mangusta.

Funny thing is that I'm the only one in the family with a car-bone in thier body. The closest my daugter has come to liking any of the above cars is to say "that green color is pretty", regarding the 71 Torino Cobra in Grabber Green.
How do you convince someone with no interest in cars that the purchase of a classic car is a good idea? LOL!

2. 2008 Ford GT (white with blue stripes)
3. 1958 Pontiac Bonneville convertible

Some of the ones that always surface for me:

1. 1969 Chevrolet Biscayne 2 door w/L-72 & 4 speed (way rare and last of the big 2dr. post Chevies)
2. 1969 Dodge Daytona
3. 1965 Chevy 2 Nova SS (not as rare as the 1st 2 but always liked it's 1 year only subtleties and not-as-popular as other novas)

Of course the 69 cougar sport special mimiking my Grandfathers original (which is becoming a reality!)
