K.. I didn't understand that post too well but the post that I made above was a joke.

dude, your still arguing when i said i agree with you. wtf?! also, did you really read my post, which was advice (sorry if it sounded like an argument, but the personal experiances ive gone thru concerning clarification were quite bad, and i dont want others to suffer that pointlessely). once again, sorry, you just needed to clarify and say how you were comparing the camry. you didnt, and it didnt make any sense. now it does. why the hell are you still arguing?

911 is it!

EDIT:
untill now i would consider the 911 (993) as the one i liked the most, and because it ws the last air cooled 911. however, now i think the 997 is number 1.

so i say 911 (997) as the greatest.

For me it's the '58-59 Cadillacs. Comfort, good engineering, and an equipment level that still puts many cars of today to shame (power seats, windows, locks, steering, and brakes, auto on/off headlights with automatic dimmer, air conditioning, self-leveling air ride. Although I could do without the fancy headlights and air ride). All in one of the best-looking, and definitely noticible styling jobs of all time. Add to that the fact that most of the models are reasonably easily affordable for a workaday falla like me.

Although the Hartmann-bodied 1937 Cadillac Roadster currently on display at the Blackhawk Auto Museum here in California comes pretty close. Pure style that car is.

As several have said, it's very hard to call one car "best." Especially when how "best" is not defined in this thread.

I would pick, for longevity and reliability...

Cadillac- The '59-'63 had a durable engine (390) and the '68-'70 high-compression 472s, along with the turbo-hydramatic transmissions, were very well built. Among Cadillac fans, it's almost taken for granted that you can buy a late '50s through 1970 Cadillac and not have to do anything to the engine (not counting oil changes and minor tune-ups). With this era of Cadillacs, you can expect a smooth and comfortable ride, plenty of power, room to spare, perfectly acceptable handling for average driving and in general a long lasting car.

- The 1955-1958 Chrysler 300 series had the tough and rugged Hemi engines. A good combination of ride and handling with power to spare. Big enough not to feel cramped inside but can still can have no problem going through mountain roads.

- The '64-'67 Dodge Darts were well known for almost legendary reliability. With either slant six or V-8 you could count on many trouble-free miles of driving.

Indeed. And the same goes for the dude that said "S-class", there are many S-class models and many generations of this model.

As for the question: well honestly, there is no such thing.
