Of the cars I've owned, my favorites are my '92 Range Rover, '60 Jaguar XK-150 FHC, '86 Peugeot 505 Turbo wagon, '77 Peugeot 604, and '67 Land-Rover NADA wagon. Of the rest, there are many I love. Of ones I might almost manage to own: Jaguar 3.5-liter ("Mk IV") of the late 40s, Audi S6 Avant and Allroad, Jaguar XJ8 (the later ones, through '09), and (just barely conceivably) the Maserati Quattoporte (just before the larger grille of the current one). Of the classics I will never be able to own, my favorites are Jaguar SS-100, Alfa Romeo 6C1750 and 8C2500, SJ Duesenbergs, and Packards (all from the mid-30s), Mercedes 300SL, Porsche 550 Spider, Aston Martin DB2-4 Mk III and DB4 GT Zagato, and Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Lusso and 250GT Zagato. The coolest car I ever got a ride in was a Birdcage Maserati driven by Ken Miles and Riverside Raceway, about 1963 or '64.
Hard question as there are so many. I have always loved "Q" cars though. That is, cars that look less than ordinary but go like a rocket. The one most people would thin of is the Lancia Delta HF Intergralle Turbo 24v. Loos like a cheap late 70's hatchback (which most of the ordinary ones really were) but WOW!
For me though the ultimate Q car has already been mentioned but an earlier version. The early 1980's Maserati Quattoporte. Never seen one? I think those who own them hide them for shame LOL. The mid sixties version got all the looks.
HAHAHA My neighbor had a Quattroporte. The 80s one. When he first got it, he was busy telling everyone how amazing this car was. It was rare, I'll give it that. It's 2010, and it sits, decaying in his garage because no one will buy the thing for $7,500. He has tried to sell it the past 10 years. He also has a crappy Bi-Turbo, for the same price.
My favorite car I ever owned, might have been Clifford, my 2000 Range Rover 4.6 HSE (see pic on left). The car I want to own, which (hopefully) will be next year, a Mercedes G55 AMG.
I'd also love a 60s Maserati Quatroporte.
I've never seen one, let alone been anywhere near owning one.
As far as favourite cars go, Range Rover, Defender 90, Land Rover Series One, Jaguar XK120 roadster, E-Type Coupe (not the ugly 2+2), Mk2 or original S-Type, Rover P5 & P6 (the SD1 also had great potential), original Aston DBS and DB5, Ferrari 330, early Porsche 911 and 365.
Sensible modern daily drivers would be an e39 M5 or an S/RS Audi(possibly an S5).
Well maybe not many of you will agree but among my favourites are:
Cadillac Eldorado (68 or something with the FWD)
Buick Riviera (around 73, with the 455)
Proper full size Cadillacs and buicks from early 70s
I love my Rangie...
The Pikes Peak Quattro, who could resist 650hp and a 5 pot sound track `)
A GT40 would be nice
Merc 600 Grosser
Ferrari F40 (one of the few ferraris I would own!)
Porsche 993 GT2
Audi UR S4 (my Dad's old '93 Audi 100 is one of the cars I loved most!)
Have to have a flock of various utility landys
Original V8 Vantage
and just for hooning about, have to throw in a Metro 6R4. An awful car in street spec, but a 400bhp NA V6 in the boot makes all the difference :lol:
Probably more that I would have, can't think of any more right now!
EDIT: Throw an Overfinch Classic into the mix :lol:
