OK. I already told of my all time favorite(Volvo 1800)...but here is my current favorite. A Victory Cross Roads. 1750 cc bagger, made in Spirit Lake Iowa. My wife and I put on over 20,000 miles in the last 14 months. Great fun!

My sentimental favorite will always be my 67 SS396 Chevelle, followed by these two, a 96 C4S modified for the track, and a 98 Mallet 435 Corvette:

1965 Mustang. Although the vehicles I've had since then have cost more, were more luxurious, could haul more, were more reliable, or were more technically advanced, none of them come close to the sheer fun factor.

Have had many good and a few great cars, but my all-time favorie was a 1961 4-door Corvair. Not a very good car - in fact, a lousy car that could scare the hell out of you just trying to go around a corner, and would asphyxiate you if you put on the heater in winter) but it was "The First Car" and represtened FREEDOM to a teenage boy.

I hear ya. My VERY first car was a $125 used red '66 Corvair. No doubt unsafe at any speed but man, it was a blast to drive. Stick shift, and took my friends and I to McDonald's and local swimming places many times!

This thread reminded me of one from about a year and a half ago that I thought was classic - especially bbbamI's post about the Grand Am. It was titled "What Was The Worst Car You Ever Had?". I just reread it, and it still kills me, but some newer people may have not seen it:

What was your worse car you ever had?

'66 Buick Skylark. First car I ever owned. Staff car for me and my buds in the 70s. Served us well.
