wow. those are exactly the 2 cars that I would be looking at if I had the money. Mine just wouldn't be black. Although I really do like the the look of the 05 mustang as well! I don't know how it drives though.

Ah ! A car topic ! Cars are my passion (apart from Physics and Mathematics).

I love TVR too, but I'd take the Sagaris over the Tuscan. In fact I'd take the ferocious Cerbera Speed 12 over either of them. Alas the latter was never actually released in its final intended form.

But I'd really prefer a Noble M400, I consider it an excellent and raw sportscar plus weekend track car. For pure fun value, I'd take an Ariel Atom.

As far as "refined" luxury sports models go, I'd take a BMW M5 (the new one).

Expensive supercars - this is a difficult choice between the Enzo and the Carrera GT. Overall, the breeding of the Ferrari wins out.

Budget performers (all I can really afford at this time) - definitely either the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 or the Subaru WRX/STi Spec C. I actually used to drive and love a heavily modified WRX not so long ago.

Definately, if you buy a car of €25,000 with a 3 year payment plan, you'll pay €7500 extra.. enough to buy a small car with.

my problem is your lack of insight/respect in/of human emotions. You clearly do not understand what it means to buy a car. It is not an object on four wheels, you know. That is what a car needs, but what a car is : is FREEDOM...But i think you are not that kind of person. I have no problem with that though...

No question about it! My absolute dream car, the one that I just have to get my hands on if only for an hour before I die, is the '66 Hemi Superbird (standard shift, of course).
I also very much want a Bugatti Veyron. :biggrin:

I should point out 2 things here; the Superbird was made in '70, and its sister car the Daytona was a year older. My original year reference is that the 'real' Hemi is generally referred to as the '66 to differentiate it from the older DeSoto hemi's and the new Chrysler ones.
Hold on while I go find the Veryon to edit in. Aha, here it is:Veyron :biggrin:

If you consider that it was in Detroit, you'd think I would be :rofl: but I found my way on my bicycle.. there was one time though that I thought a guy would pull a gun on me, while I had accidentally sneaked up on him and changed my gears.. he jumped around so fast :bugeye:

My realistic car forecast is as follows:

Next 2 years - Caterham 7 http://www.easytrack.co.uk/members/cars/2526-1.jpg

Next 5 years - Lotus Elise
Lotus%20Elise%20Blue%20New%20-%20800x600.jpg


Next 10 years - TVR Tuscan
TVR%20Tuscan%20R%20-%201.jpg


After that, I suppose it'll just depend how rich I am.

I'm looking for a good picture of a 1932 Cord, love those.
Yeah, the Cord was pretty cool. That's the one with the straight 36, right?

What did you post those pictures as? I've just got red x's showing.

I know that if I heard the menacing click-clank of a derailleur behind me, I'd be shooting before asking questions.
Now that I think about it, I want one of everything mentioned in this thread.
