top 20... hmmm...
I think I would be happy with these six... and of course my X1/9
One of these is not like the others...
A bunch of pictures of cool cars that it would be fun to have but I am pretty happy with the two I still have.
I have been driving this car for over 17 years and it is still fun to drive.
I have had this Cruiser for forty three years and have done some serious four wheeling in the past but it now sits in the garage most of the time but when I do take it out, it always gets comments.
I wouldn't mind having my 128 back. This picture was taken more than several years ago when my wife and I took a two and a half month 3,000 mile road trip in it. The lady in the picture is a good friend of my wife and we stopped by to say hello while on our trip. She was the original owner and sold us the car when it was about a month short of being a year old.
I always wanted this car when I was a kid. My dad owned one and I spent many a restful drive laying up in the back window shelf.
I have owned a few other cars that I really liked although nothing as exotic as the ones shown by others. If I could choose only one car that I could really get back it would most likely be my 60 Chevy wagon. It was the first car I owned. I got it in 67 when I was in the navy. It had a 283 three speed/w overdrive, a Muntz eight track tape player and got 25 miles to the gallon. (Gas was 25 cents or less a Gal.) What more could you want? It can be said my wife and I had our courtship in that car. I would come in to Riverside Ca. from San Diego just about every weekend and pick up my girl and surf board and head back to the beach. We spent every weekend together in that car exploring Southern California. It would sleep two people and a 10' 5" surf board comfortably. This picture was taken above Lake Elsinore right after the floods in 1968. We got married in 69. I guess compared to the rest of you I am pretty easy to please.
Mine would look like this (not going to clog up the post with pictures, we know what most of these cars look like, if not, there's Google):
Original Ford GT40
New Ford GT
Alfa Romeo Montreal
Porsche 911 Turbo whale tail
Now having said that, if I had the money to own all these, my funds would basically be unlimited. Contrary to the rumors Papa Tony is trying to spread, sadly they are not. But if they were, this would be the tip of the iceberg.
Dragonsgate, have You shortened frontend of Your X?
I have only 3 cars:
•Rover Mini, already have.
•Fiat X19, already have, but still don't know how it is to drive.
•Cherokee XJ, next in the list.
But it seems that x19 will push mini out of the list.
By about ten inches. Didn't need the radiator so I chopped the excess space off. I have on occasion wished I had left it to accommodate some other body designs but it has been nice when it comes to steep inclines such as driveways. It is best I never get one of the nice cars shown here as I have never had any qualms about defiling vintage tin if it suits my whim.
