Favorite Cars

Postby THEDAMNRUSSIANS » Mon 28 Jan 2013 04:10

Anyone else love cars? I was going to test drive the new MKZ and CTS today and saw a 2005 Ford GT! IMO it is one of if not the best looking car in history. The Hennessy version holds the current standing mile record at 257.7 mph and I love its 1960's heritage. Obviously then this is my favorite car. Personally I've always been a fan of Ford and Mercedes. Anybody else?

Was a car/racing nut for a long time but not so much anymore...Love Japanese and some European cars but in general, the late 70's and most of the 80's was the golden-age for ricers...Really dislike American cars and design philosophy but I do respect Ford for many reasons (long standing support of international racing and sound management are two reasons).

Jaguar Type E, XK120 and my beloved Type D (the XKSS version is cool too, but the glasses make it.. Strange...)

Wholeheartedly agree.

Favourite dream car ?
Bertone Lancia Stratos prototipo "0" (concept car). Enjoy the music.

Would it be an actual production model, I'd exchange any of the monstrous modern cars (have you seen the size of the new "Mini" ? It's a joke, right ?) for that instantly.

Actual drivable car ?
Lancia Beta coupé (also known as Lancia Scorpion), metallic grey. Still searching one in good condition. It's the european DeLorean !

Bonus : both fit the timeline.

Don't care for cast or fancy cars, or modern sports vehicles. However, the vehicle that was such a part of my childhood will always have a soft sport in my heart:

I'm a Yamaha guy, and the Ducati hasn't really smiled on Il Dottore just yet.
