    .... and something that at one point you could have afforded but just never got around to buying for some weird reason. :huh


    I'll go first.... :knitting

    .... Can I list two cars? :confused

    Uhmm yes, the new rules say list two cars if you feel you have to...

    ok, so we have the Triumph TR6. Always liked em, never bought one.

    The second little dealy is the Ferrari 308GTSI or maybe the 328 .... they dropped in price at one time and were affordable to the average bone head, but I never seeked them out too hard because they weren't really very fast and maintenance was too brutal. [​IMG]



    Thank you, someone else can spill the beans for a while now .... :red

    Mr. Norm's '68 M Code 440 Dodge Dart.

    . . . but I'd settle for a '68-'69 Hemi Roadrunner.

    Any late 60’s or early 70’s big block Chevy. Prices have gotten ridiculous.

    All of them.

    The closest I’ll ever come to driving a sports car is Forza on the Xbox.

    Ferrari 512BBi. I've driven one, and the cost to buy was affordable about 15 years ago. But the maintenance would have been too much.

    A 1967 Porsche 911S. I had a 69 but always wanted a short wheelbase S.

    A bug eye WRX. I thought those were pretty sweet when they came out.

    I drive too much to get one as a daily driver now, they're just too old.

    Also thought the newer GTO's were pretty cool.

    1965 Pontiac GTO convertible. I almost bought one once but, I bought a 1966 Chevelle SS convertible instead. I never forgot that GTO though. Beautiful car!

    I'd have liked to get a 1962 Ford Falcon convertible and taken it to a shop and made it a 1960. I'd have liked to get a Squarebird (1958-60 T-Bird) convertible and have it shortened to a two-seater.

    1929 Ford 2 door sedan, chopped and channeled, with a Buick Nailhead V8 and 3 Stromberg 97's. Been my dream car since I was a kid, don't know that I'll ever be able to actually build one though.
    Also, a 49 Chevy Sedan Delivery. Inline 6, 3 speed, and lowered. Simple, but fun to cruise around in, and it would have enough room to haul some guitars and amps in the back.

    My friends brother had one of these that he modded. It would smoke the tires through 3 gears.
