With all the money and time, which car do you want at this point of time?

I'm not going too far, so I'd really like a BMW 2002 Tii and have it fully restored. It's such a beauty although many won't agree. The other day a friend of mine who graduated recent came back in a BMW 1600, looks just like the 2002 which is just everlasting.

Alfa Romeo SZ 'Il Mostro'.

The most beautifully 'ugly' car of all time, it has a character that most cars lack.

well, since this recently happened...

i am in the market for a new ride. i will be buying a used audi a4 quattro with the V6 rather than the turbo. i love to drive it. it is an amazing vehicle. i took one and drove it around ALL DAY yesterday, beautiful day, sunroof open, su was shining, on winding roads. mmm.

...if i could i would buy an s4, but alas, i'm poor. love the new styling on the 2006.

since this thread is about what I WOULD BUY if i COULD, i'd buy a 1955 Ford Thunderbird. old school, classic, timeless AMERICAN styling (...where has THAT gone?). it is a beautiful automobile. theres nothing out there like it.


...oh, about my old blazer (that thing pictured above). some jackass ran a red light last sunday, i hit him, hard. the car behind me hit me (sorry no pictures of the back). it was an absolute mess.

I thought we did have this same thread six months back? Oh well.

I think I would need more than one car if I had the space, time and money. I'll take four:

1. Something raw and uncomprimising. Lotus/Caterham 7 or Lotus Elise.

2. Something efficient: Honda Insight

3. Urban transport for family: Mazda 5

4. Long distance tourer: Bristol Bleinheim (why not?)

Yeah, I think I could only narrow it down to 5 if I had unlimited resources

Exotic_ Astin Martin V8 Vantage
American Classic_ Mustang Mach 1 or a 69 Cuda
European Classic_ Posche 356a or c
4 seater_ Maserati Quattroporte or a Bentley Continental
Toy_ Ferrari Dino 246 GTS

That would be a decent garage.

An Acura NSX, or a Lotus Elise, or a Honda Insight, or a BMW Z3 Coupe. Really, anything smallish with two doors and two seats.

I also really like the new Porsche Cayman. Any car with a liftback (hatchback hinged in the middle of the roof, rather than at the back of the car) is good by me.
