Gee I would have been happy with a Studebaker Avanti circa 1964
From Here
Posted Image

The rakish 1963-64 Studebaker Avanti was among the most daring 1960s American cars, a modern masterpiece with totally unique American styling that even top exotic Italian auto stylists wouldn't attempt to do.

The Avanti had advanced safety features, when no U.S. automaker particularly gave a darn about safety. Such features included a built-in roll bar, padded interior and door latches that became structural body members when closed.

Performance? An Avanti with a supercharged V-8 was one of the fastest 1960s autos. A supercharged model hit 168 mph, while a modified version reached 196 mph, a staggering speed for a 1960s production street car. Some 29 Bonneville speed records were smashed by a supercharged Avanti.

Safety? The Avanti (Italian for "forward") was the first mass-produced fiberglass-body four-passenger American car. It also was the first such car to use caliper-style disc brakes.


Alas, Santa decided I wasn't a good enough Boy, this year either.

Thanks for those! Strangely enough, I didn't get an Aston either... pity, been fond of them since James Bond DB5 days. Like Studebakers too, we had a '64 Cruiser when I was a kid:

Not as flash as that one though! Sort of liked the Avanti, but preferred the Gran Turismo Hawk.

I'd settle for a used one of these

Uploaded on Oct 23, 2009

700+ HP 2010 Hennessey V700 Cadillac CTS-V pulls 0.99 g's at launch on it's way to running 11.07 @ 128 mph in the 1/4 mile - Alerts OnStar's emergency system of a "vehicle event".



or a new one of these.

Published on Oct 24, 2012

Hennessey VR1200 Twin Turbo Coupe runs 220.5 mph on the SH130 toll road near Austin, Texas and becomes the fastest Cadillac CTS-V in the world.




I'm not that picky.
