A variation on a theme I'm sure that has been posted elsewhere, but what five cars would you just like to own for a period of time. Not looking for the rarest or most expensive, but realistically cars you've always liked but never owned. Here are a few of mine....5 is a bit limiting:

1970 Pontiac Grand Prix (4 speed would be nice)

1970 Plymouth Fury GT (440...six pack, even better :-D )

1968 Cougar XR7 (390)

1965 Buick Riviera (425 Dual Quads)... Almost had one years ago.

1967 Firebird convertible 400 Ram Air (4 speed would be nice)


What's on your list??

Everytime I think about adding a GM to the collection, I find a Mopar I must have. It's insane and yes I am :nuts

correction 63 was the last year for the push button. (64 you could get it in a Dart and Valiant) Will check with the Guru of the early mopars Gary Aug to make sure.

Hal what about your list?

This is tough to limit to just five. Without sleeping on it, here is what comes to mind:

71 Plymouth Sport Fury GT B7 blue, white top, white interior and white stripe (had one this color combination as a project that I sold because it needed to much work)

76 Dodge Street Van

70 Superbird

05 or 06 Dodge Ram SRT Quad Cab in yellow

69 Mustang Mach 1 SCJ

Hmmm. Hard to pin down five but I'll ramble off the first 5 that come to mind.

1- 71 Hemicuda- Needs billboards and a 4 speed and all the goods. Favorite Musclecar, but I'd welcome a 440+6 just the same.

2- 1980 Camaro Z28- White w/ blue stripes, T-tops 350 and a 4 gear. First Musclecar that fit my budget

3- I'd love a DeTomaso Pantera, don't know too much about them other than the transaxle is weak. Still a sexy car with looks 15 years ahead of its time. I'd prefer the "basket of snakes" equal length headers please.

4- To get even further from the average car in this post.... Lambo Countach 5000QV. Probably turn out to be the biggest POS ever but I had a monster poster of one when I was young & dreaming.

5- Let me think about it......
