Welcome to UCP, there is an on-going thread on this subject, but as you wisely put this one in the classic-car section, it is unlikely that we get to see the Enzos and the Veyrons here.

Mine would be
Alpine A110 (possibly a 1600 SC)
Citroen DS
Ferrari 288 GTO
Ferrari 330 GTC
Lamborghini Miura
Chevron B16 (Street legal Continuation model)
BMW 3200CS
Peugeot 406 Coupe HDi 2.2 (Daily driver )
Alfa Romeo 8C2300 Zagato
Lotus Elan S2

yea, the idea of this one is for the more obscure classic cars (don't want to call them old )

Hmmm, if we're going for the more classic cars...

Lotus Carlton:
A nice choice. 377bhp, 175mph. It was the fastest Vauxhall up until the Monaro. I just love them. Getting cheap now, too.


Ford Sierra RS Cosworth Sapphire:
Wanted it ever since I had a Corgi model of it! I have been lucky enough to have a small go in one, and it was amazing. Vicious, brutal, unforgiving, endearing, and utterly astounding. Has to be RWD.


Lancia Delta Integrale:
My neighbour has one. Converted to RHD. Very nice car indeed, I have liked them for a long time.


Dodge Charger R/T '68:
I just love American muscle, and this car is just the ultimate. The torque produced by the car at standstill rocks it from side-to-side. Another brutal car.


Eleanor:
I would love a Ford Mustang GT500, but especially in 'Eleanor' spec- from Gone In 60 Seconds (Nicolas Cage, not the original). It's just beautiful.


Chevrolet Camaro RS '68:
Another American muscle choice. I love the headlight covers and the general look. Failing this, it'd be a Yenko.


BMW E28 M5:
An affordable classic, with pin-sharp handling and a throaty 3.5 straight-six. Considering getting one with Dad as a 'Sunday' car- for the odd cross-country jaunt on Sunday mornings. And just look at it...


Aston Martin Vantage:
It's a bit new... but... 550bhp is not to be sniffed at. The last real Aston Martin- every single panel was hand-beaten. If one blemish is found, the beater starts all over again. To complete a door alone it took 3 weeks. A true dinosaur, and sorely missed.


Ford RS200:
I've loved this since I was about 3 or 4, had it as a Matchbox. It looks like an angel, is as rough as a badger and goes like stink. 750bhp from a 1.8T, anyone? One 2.1 Evolution model hit 60mph in 2.1 seconds.


Ford Escort XR3i:
One of my earliest car memories. Not the best picture, but it's the spec I want. Grey, with the dogleg alloys. I remember begging Mum to buy it, but she wouldn't budge. We got an Escort 1.6 LX instead! It's just one of those sentimental things...

Like I said, sentimental reasons!

I'll describe it.

As a 4 year old, life was good. The sun didn't really shine, as I was living in Yorkshire, but I liked watching the world go by and playing with all my Matchbox cars. I used to love Fords- we had a Fiesta 1.1 Popular at the time- an absolute shitbox. But I still loved Fords, and always hankered after the Grails- XR2s, Cosworths, and in particular the XR3i.

Mum took me car shopping one day. A dark, dingy little garage on the other side of town- with all the 'halo' cars in the poorly-lit showroom. I was poking around, and saw a low-slung, dark grey Escort. It looked fabulous. It had the alloys that are pictured, and in the light it just looked menacing and complete- the driving spotlights, the spoiler, the front bodykit. I poked my head through the open window, and took in a velour-finished Recaro interior. It was just... I don't know. Something about it. I begged mum to get it, but alas, I didn't understand the words "budget", "insurance", "theft" and "vandalism". So it was an Escort 1.6 LX for us- nice enough, but I still want the dark grey XR3i. It's the only car that I remember from my early years, our cars aside.

IWAARS6, alot of muscle cars shake when revved, it's not just the dodge. :P

1968 Camaro Z28 RS

1967 Nova SS daily driver

1969 Chevelle SS with the 375hp/396 similar to picture, but a convertible instead of a hard top

1969 Camaro drag car, I'd de-tune it to learn on, 11 seconds or so, then make it go faster, down to about 9's or 8's.

Maybe some jags and a nice MGA to top it off.
