My very first car was a '55 Chevy convertible and I wish I had it today...

Hmmm....

Well...maybe not. I'm a little older than that, so I guess it would have been 64-67 Stingray....roadster.

Always wanted a 1956 Ford Thunderbird with two tops, soft and hardtop with port holes and a rear continental kit. Specifically white outside, white and red inside with the big engine and 3 speed tranny.

It was a James Bond movie where I fell in love with the car, well the blond driving the car wasn't too bad either.

Had a chance to buy exactly what I wanted from a small dealership in Victor, New York. They had it on the showroom floor and was cherry, fully restored, all nice and shiny inside and out, the engine too.

They were asking $25,000 for it and I hesitated. He who hesitates will be sitting on the sidelines.

I went back a few months later to buy and it had been sold.

Damn !!!

Shelby Cobra & 1970 Dodge Challenger, Both are out of my $$$ range. But I will settle for the Cobra Kit Car Factory Five.

In 1969 I ordered a 1970 Dodge Challenger, 440 6-pack with a 4 speed. It was going to be violet with a white vinyl roof... changed jobs, moved, cancelled order, lost deposit. Still kicking myself.

My high school love was a 1949 Cadillac Sedanette, you know the fast back, dark green. Next was a 1955 Chevy hard top, settled for a '55 Buick after that it was whatever the kids would fit into. At one time I did have my 1971 Bronco which I truly loved, but then the smog laws got me. Spent my money on an engagement ring rather than that "23 "T' Bucket, double sigh.



Thanks for the trip back to my days of California Dreaming.

I feel your pain.

I had a chance to buy another one of my dream cars, a Ferrari 308 GTS similar to the one on "Magnum, P.I.".

Like this:



The seller wanted $27k for it, and it was in pristine condition.

Talk about a chick magnet....the CAR, not Tom Selleck....

Call me crazy BUT My Dream car is a 1961 Buick Wildcat convertible in red with a white interior, 4 speed Hurst shifter, 401 CID Wildcat engine.

The picture above is a LeSabre

I used to see this car come into the Atlantic gas station that I used to work at on Federal Hill in Providence, RI. The owner of the Atlantic was Thomas Pupella and he was my 1st boss and he taught me how to drive in a 55-56 Chevy 3 speed column shifter. This was back in ~1962-1963. Working for Tom, he made me get a social security card. I was about 16 yo.

Well, I like my real 1952 MG TD... Had it since I was 13, we restored it in 1993 and it's in absolutely beautiful condition. Very easy to maintain, totally reliable, the classic British sports car. Why buy a fake when you can get the real thing for not much more?

Current "dream car" list includes:
  • Aston-Martin DB7
  • Mercedes-Benz SLS
  • 1970 Pontiac GTO
  • 1971-72 Pontiac Trans-Am
  • 1970 Mustang Mach 1
  • LOLA or Lotus Formula Ford (pre-1973)
  • 1948-54 Chevy pickup
Current stable includes a couple "Dream Cars":
  • 1952 MG TD (genuine)
  • 1971 Triumph GT6 Mk. III (vintage race car)
  • 1979 Cadillac Seville (first generation)
  • 2000 Lexus RX300 (teen's car)
  • 2006 Chevy 2500HD Duramax C/C LT 4X4
  • 2006 Cadillac SRX (Northstar 4.6L)
  • 2011 Mercedes-Benz E550 Coupe (single best car I've ever owned)

I didn't realize that this was for cars we had! The one I posted is just a dream - a far cry from my 2005 chevy impala that I have.

I do wish I had my first car back, a 1972 orange VW bug with crank sunroof, and 2 squirrels in the back moving very fast!
