I like the idea of a '50s Fairlane with the optional Blown 312 Y block. What other rides would you add?icon_smile.gif

I learned to drive in my dad's '67 Mustang GT 390 V-8 convertible (same green color as in previous post) and my mom's '67 Chevy Caprice with a 427 V-8. Good for passing slower traffic. :)
Nice days back then.

Forgot to add.. choices? A neighbor has a beautiful Shelby 427 Cobra, always dreamed about owning one. It's in pristine shape.

1633 Merc ?  330bhp six cylinder in-line diesel. Mind you it was a 40 ton tractor unit.

@iWolarex #7.

 

Obviously my attempt at humour failed !  I thought I had made it clear that it was a truck - or at least the front end of an articulated truck. Still I had a very intense relationship with it since I basically lived in it for a three year spell running around Europe. I certainly spent more time in it than I did at home.

 

Not that I am really into cars or trucks. The only car I ever lusted after was an Austin Princess and that was purely because of the shape. I still think it was one of the best looking cars ever made in the UK even if the designers forgot about the legal requirement for number plates when they were designing it. But unreliable !  You couldn't keep the d*** thing in drive shafts when I finally got my hands on one. But pure drop dead gorgeous.

The 5 cars I'd want in my garage:

 

34' Merc would be a nice thing to own.. but I'd want an all original matching numbers car.. which is very rare these days, and expensive. 

 

69' Boss 429, I'd want it all original matching numbers as well, however I doubt I would ever see that :P

 

23' Ford T-Bucket Any motor would do as long as it gets off the line in one piece :P

 

If you haven't noticed by now I am a ford guy. :P

 

02' Ford Mustang GT - Already own, has less than 50,000 miles on it, mostly original, a few add ons and a heavy tune. Daily driver in the summers.

 

69' Camaro SS RS options.. would never find an all original and be able to afford it.. but one can dream - Only Camaro I'd own.

1954 M57 Dodge Power Wagon.  Inline Flat Six, 4x4, with a top speed of 58Mph.

 

Talk about muscle.  That little truck would idle uphill, fully loaded, in low gear!

 

Lots of options too!  My favourite option was the M40 106.

 

I first learned how to drive in one.

 

Cheers!
