I love Hummers! fully black stretch Hummer with blacked out windows and black neon underlight, I saw one of those at light! It looked amazing! Although the neon underlights seem a little pointless.

I want a McLaren F1, my dream car. Fastest car ever. I heard they only make 3 every year.

70' Hemi Cuda Convertible. I have owned 3 Cuda's, all of them were 440 coupes.
Current daily driver is a 2001 Supercharged Bonneville SSEi, which replaced my 2000 Ram Air T/A when I got married. I like the new 350hp GTO too, maybe my next car.

I would have said the Saleen S7, or Mclaren F1, but I try to dream about cars I can afford.

The question was "Whats your favorite car?"
I never owned a Hemi Cuda, only 3 440 Cuda's. One was an original 6pk, the other 2 were 440x4. I also owned 2 67 Formula S Barracuda's, a 440, and a 273. A 70 GTX, and 69 Road Runner. If we had a photo section, I would post some photos. I did all the body work, paint, and engine rebuilds on them. All were in mint original condition, except the 67 440, which was a Pro-Street dragster on nitrous.

The 70' Hemi Cuda Convertible 4 speed is my favorite car. I like the new 2005 GTO, and plan to buy a new car this fall.

My favorite care would have to be the 959 Porsche.

I really do love old Mopars. From about 1963 to 1971, they made some great looking, and even better running cars. They didn't have the smooth feel of the Chevy, or the fine handling of a Pontiac, or the solidness of a Ford, but they were FAST. I remember as a young kid, a friend's older brother had a 340 Duster that would burn posi-trac rubber forever, and I was hooked on Mopars. I also had an 80' Z28 Camaro at one point, but the tranny went out and I traded it. A 427 Camaro sounds awesome, I love big blocks of any kind. If that 68' Barracuda is affordable, I hope your dad grabs it while he can. Have you checked out Mopars on ebay lately? The prices are getting incredible! I saw a 70' Cuda convertible with a 340, the bid was at $43,000 ......Reserve NOT MET!

I'm back.


The McLaren F1 is not in production anymore, The F1 GT is in production for racing purposes only.

By the way, it is not the fastest anymore, the Bugatti Veyron has surpassed 250 mph as supposed to the F1's 230 Mph speed, The Veyron is now in production.

EDIT: Oh yeah, I've seen one of those F1's before in a parking lot, really nice car.
I don't check this forum anymore.

Yeah but in 1993 or somewhere around there Porsche made a street legal car that did almost hit 250. It only got to 248mph.

Yes, however, it never got into production.

You are lucky, Crashdummy! I've never even seen one (in real life, that is).

Well, I've only seen it a few times. Thats only because my dad is trying to keep it with extremely low mileage and in mint condition. I think it has seven miles on it.

My absolute dream car would be either a Saleen S7 or a Porsche Carrera GT. I would say Porsche 959, but what's the point if they're not street legal and Customs won't even let you import one? As muscle cars go, my dream car would be the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona (only 503 of them produced, compared to over 1000 Plymouth Super Birds, plus I prefer the look of the Daytona to that of the Super Bird). I think that being able to afford either a Lotus Exige or TVR Tuscan S isn't totally out of reach for me, the Exige is quite a bit cheaper than the Tuscan but the Tuscan's styling is more easily appreciated.

If you want to see the cars I actually own, go here though:
