Purchased a '66 GTO for $2450. Sold it a few years ago for $$$$$.00. Had ~24000 miles and in mint condition. Wife told me she only went out with me because of the car and would probably leave with the car if I sold it. She's still here....

Hopefully, at this stage of life we should be driving some of our dream cars.

I consider a few of my cars to be "dream cars". This life is a one way trip; No time like the present to pick one out and go for it!

Like this:



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

Talk about a chick magnet....the CAR, not Tom Selleck....
+1 on the 308!

I re-bought one similar to my first car which was a yellow 1973 VW beetle. I bought a yellow 1972 VW Beetle convertible about 6 years ago and have slowly been restoring it. The Beetle I can afford, the '66 Chevelle is just a pipe dream!

Growing up in the late 50's and early 60's I got to ride in what many would consider to be some of the best dream cars ever built.
Dear Dad, bless his soul bought a new car every year and each one was more powerful and faster then the one before. We didn't always have meat for dinner, the latest home furnishings or wear the latest fashions, but we always had the coolest car on the block.

Thanks pops and rest easy. Be see'in ya some day.

OMG...Off the wall....

That car is identical to my second car. I loved that bug and wished that I had held onto it...

Memories....

Growing up in the UK, the E-Type Jaguar (XKE in the US) takes the prize. A Mercedes 300SL Gullwing comes a close second and a Citroen DS-19 third.

Right now, a double-decker, 35' Leyland Atlantean bus and enough money to pay someone to convert it to a motorhome has its attractions!

When I was 16 years old the 1965 Coronet 500 was winning everything at the drag strip. I dreamed of having one and daddy said I could get one if I paid for it myself. I went to local bank and borrowed $2665.00 (could do that back then) and order my dream car. New 1965 Dodge coronet 500 4 speed 383 with bucket seats and tach in console. Paid for in 2 years with tobacco crops. Made lots of memories with the car. 46 years later me and the grand boys are making new memories with the muscle car. Still enjoy the drive and raw horsepower of a dream come true.

The one I wish I had kept was a 1958 DKW. I paid $50 for it in 1968 (at a dealer!), ran it for 18 months and sold it for $80. It had a three-cylinder two-cycle 1.0 liter engine, front wheel drive. It ran like a Swiss watch.

I sold it because I couldn't see buying four tires and four shocks for a $50 car - dumb!

61' Impala convertible seafoam blue with a white top. I talked my Dad into buying it for the family car, I had my drivers license before he did. We lived in Philly and it was easy to take public transit, so that's what he did until I was 16. I guess he was embarrassed that I got mine so he went out and got his. Then we went car shopping and I talked him into the Impala. 2 years later my wife and I eloped it, and as they say the rest is history

offthewall,

Nice!
My thoughts went to a "Bug" also but didn't think anyone else's would too.

What I DID buy as my 'Dream Car' though was this,...
My Sleeping Giant... can pull A N Y T H I N G I hook to it.
