Dream Car

If money, practicality, and good sense were not obstacles, what would be your dream car? Mine - '64 Aston Martin.

An early Sunbeam Alpine like the red one in the foreground or an early Singer like this one.

So many cars so little time money

A Ferrari 458 Italia would be acceptable. But given time I could probably think of something I'd like better. The Veyron would be nice, but the maintenance seems excessive.

Duesenberg for a car to cherish.
63 split window vette as a imperfect driver instead of hangar queen would be fun

Long long ago and far far away I had a roommate in the 70's with one of those - him and the State of Colorado got in some silly argument about points after which he rode his bicyle for a while. I had a pokey old 67 XKE 2+2 red yet which I always drove the speed limit - at least in Denver pretty much sort of.

In my old age - maybe a primered out rat rod when a genuine flathead Ford V8 and an interesting carb set up.

heh heh heh - If I was rich probably have a wharehouse of cars and pickups.

I have my (current) dream car and it's nothing special in the overall scheme of things, but then I stopped being enamored with cars quite a while ago (thanks LBYM). But I used to lust after cars when I was younger (my first word was wheel), so if I lost my bearings I'd probably be choosing between these...(that was fun in a vicarious way).

Damn it! I hate when HFWR posts my dream car before I can do it! Okay, okay, this one is close, and I'm also totally in the land yacht category! But I'd also take either one of these.
