    The fancy ones are all great, one of my favourites being the Veyron. When down comes to dirty, though, I'm still in love with my Roadrunner.

    My vote goes for Porsche gt3 rs, but any Porsche 911 is simply amazing.

    I like the Alfa Giulia, the Jag D type and the Lotus Elise. I'm also pretty happy with my Seven and 911.

    Well, I'm sure this isn't what you meant...

    But stick with me; my story gets better. Above you see my first car (or rather: my grandfather's last car *sob*). Anyway, it was really more of a sentimental thing, rather than a fantastic piece of blingage.

    ORIGINALLY, it was a '92 Buick Century Special.

    [PLAIN]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash1/hs553.ash1/32248_104980156214368_100001071534511_42037_5482263_n.jpg [Broken]

    At some point after it became mine, I rear ended an SUV with a boat hitch, thereby totaling my front end. And being the kind of kook that I am (and I really couldn't afford to fix it anyway), I decided to put my older sister's front end (from an '85 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera) on onto my car (we were junking her's anyhow).

    It took some minor modifications (thanks entirely to my brother Jim); but eventually, with a cheap paint job at Maaco, I got it to look like this...

    Ahem...thank-you.

    Now, to be a good sport, I should just like to mention also that I was totally in love with this car when I first saw it...

    2009 SEL Dark Ink Blue Ford Fusion; which to me at least, is even nicer than the present incarnation.

    Ferrari GTO 250. I know (professionally only) a fellow that owns one, and he paid millions for it. Of course he could well afford it, so that's not a concern, but he did buy near the top of the market. He dabbles in other collectibles, too, which is how I came to have him on my call-list.

    Pagani Zonda has to be my favourite, everything a supercar should be. But the Veyron is the greatest car ever made. fact.

    Could only be owned by a drug dealer. Very successful drug dealer mind you.

    :blushing: I regret: I really don't have much enthusiasm for cars I could never afford. To me, a lot of them just look like a rendition of the Lamborghini Diablo anyway.

    I really more love the classics...

    That's my American-ness showing, I guess.

    Re: Cars!!!!!!

    Probably the worst car my family has ever owned (and that's a tough call, considering it's via for that title with my mother's mid 70's Datsun) was an '81 Subaru DL or GL Wagon hatchback.

    Which looked something like this...

    [PLAIN]http://www.indysworld.com/80s/general/specs/general/gen3wa01.jpg [Broken]

    Ours was metallic blue; and the interior almost always smelled like vomit (we threw up a lot as kids...I once even threw up in the lobby of a movie theater before seeing E.T.).

    I guess the reason we all felt such strong feels about this particular car--and even to this day--is on account of it scaring the living daylights out of us on regular basis.

    For instance: it was supposed to be a 4WD, and yet somehow it got stuck at the beach on fairly level terrain. The engine was so salt corroded even after only a few years (it lasted about 5 total), it was actually too disgusting to look at. And, of course, you might be wondering by now: what a child was doing looking under the hood so much. Well one guess...it broke down--A LOT! Stranding us, frequently--on the freaking beach! Guess we went to the beach too much, huh?

    [URL]http://bringatrailer.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/1985_Subaru_GL_Engine_1.jpg[/URL]

    And scariest of all: it had a donut tire mounted to the engine--THAT'S HOW TINY IT WAS. 4 cylinder 4WD my expletive deleted! The only thing that even comes close to the puniness of that engine is my brother's Geo metro 3 cylinder (and even that I think looks bigger somehow).

    Finally, after many years of rotting away in our driveway, and making itself a general eyesore to the neighborhood, it actually had to be dragged away, because the wheels had locked. It's almost as if it didn't want to leave.

    One interesting thing my brother discovered while prepping it to go, is that the car seemed to have had a third headlight, that we never knew about. It was under the Subaru insignia; which apropo enough, basically fell off completely undisturbed upon the arrival of the tow truck. Maybe it was there to light up the symbol? I don't know; and honestly, I don't remember it ever doing that either.

    Re: Cars!!!!!!

    The GTI is my everyday favourite car (currently own a Mk4, previous owned a MK2), It's absolutely always been that way. My semi obtainable 'cool car' would be the Delta Integrale in red or yellow.

    So far this thread has produces some beauties and some complete shockers. I'm not really a fan of Ferrari as a company, but the 250 GTO is a stunning car.
