    Right now I just picture one in my driveway. Someday I will have a '68 Cougar with some grapes. Damn, the 60's had some great domestics.

    Luxury + Sport= Speed & love icon_cool.gif

    I love cars, some of my favorites-

    Volkswagen Eos
    Volkswagen Passat
    Acura TL
    Land Rover
    Nissan 350Z (2009 Only)
    I have more, but that's it for now-

    Although my #1 favorite car is the AUDI. Such a beautiful and sophisticated machine. I love all models, but my favorite would be a hot royal blue RS4. Now that's nice icon_smile.gif

    I love cars... Someday I would love to own a real Classic, a 30's era Cord - Delahaye - Duesenberg - Hispano-Suiza - Jaguar - LaSalle - Mercedes-Benz - Packard - Pierce-Arrow - Stutz - preferably a convertable, something classy like that.

    I do collect Motorcycles now; I have 3 BMW's, an Indian, a Douglas, an Ambassador, a Cushman, a Norton, 3 Triumph's, a Ducati, a Sunbeam, 3 HD's, 2 BSA's, a Nougier, a Monark, and a Crocker...

    and a few others I can't think of right now...

    My partner bought me a new Triumph - a Bonneville - for a wedding present.

    Nothing like a feel of a fine German machine hugging the road around a sharp curve. Even at rest they're sexy. The throaty rumble of a well-tuned engine and exhaust system make me hard.

    Oddly enough, I have a secret desire to own a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, complete with fins. Go figure.

    I have an 01 BMW 325ci, but I like many types of cars ranging from the Mazda 3 to the Ferrari 599. I tend to favor German and Japanese cars most.

    Some favorites at the moment:

    68 Monteverdi 375
    nearly all variations of the Porshe 911
    66 Mustang Fastback
    88 Pontaic Fiero GT
    92-98 Eagle Talon
    63 Ferrari Lusso
    07 Ferrari 599
    85 Alfa GTV6

    I love the new 3 series coupes, but I'm trying to resist buying another car. It's nice to have no car payments for a change.

    Have an 06 330i sedan but I've been drooling over the 335i convertible. Need to take a test drive of a 3 with the twin turbo engine. They say no turbo lag. Wonder if it's true.

    <3 driving small cars

    Luxury weighs to much imo icon_rolleyes.gif

    More a fan of the driving experience, breezing the twisting backroads. 0-60 I could care less about, I'd rather enjoy my travel while still not hurting my wallet on the current crop of oil addicted US cars.

    What I might love is the CRZ concept when it finally comes around. Light 2 seater sports hybrid? Lets see if those two words can really go together!

    What I driven is a Supra, traded in to my current Civic Hybrid since I have a long work/school commute. I miss working on my car, not much I can currently do performance wise. Have done LED light replacements, intake work, insulation, appearance mods, and a few other odds and end. I take pride in doing things myself.

    Although I have to admit, BMW's are quite the sex on wheels! Except I the new 1 series needs to grow on me first.

    If you love classic cars - the Pebble Beach (CA) Concours d' Elegance every August is an event you should not miss. I try to go every year. I collect a few older classics - wouldn't mind having a special garage for about twenty of my favorites. Right now I have just three: a Jaquar Vanden Plas; a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II; and a Mercedes Benz 450SL (two top). I've had them all for a long time - you get attached to them.

    I used to be a car buff, but after owning a Mazda RX-7, a Porsche 911, and a Mercedes 300E, the desire has been fulfilled, and I'm content to drive my Dodge Ram pickup. At this point, though, with $3/gal gas and a thirsty truck with a 33 gallon tank, I'd love to have an electric car or an econobox for local use.

    I love cars, but I don't really get into the mechanics. I'm more of a body/styling man. My dad owned his own bodyshop when I was a kid, and he had some old clunkers that just amazed me.

    I'm a huge car buff! I've currently got:

    2005 Scion xB
    1994 Caprice 9c1 (police package)
    1992 Buick Roadmaster
    1978 Ford Bronco

    would like to add a few to the collection like:

    98-2001 BMW 750i
    BMW M5

    and a few hundred others that I can't think of at the moment...but honestly the caprice is and always will be my favorite ;)

    No doubt the new 135 will go like hell with that engine. I should probably stay away from the dealership. It's way too easy to catch the bug. One whiff of fresh leather and VOCs from new materials and I'm out of control.

    I drive a 00 Chevy Cavalier which is a nice car but I would really love to have a convertible Camaro or a Mustang myself. Those cars look hot. Especially those from the early 90s. :-)
