Mine is a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. Looks good, Hemi is a beast, and first stock car to break 200mph on a closed course.

Ferrari 250 series is my favorite, but I also love the typical american classics...stingrays, AC cobras, shelby Cobras, and 67-69 Camaros/Firebirds. I'm not too into classics, but those are my favorites.

My favorite is the 57 Chev. Like the 67-69 Camaro, Dogde Charger, Hemi are good horsepower engines.
Early Corvette's.

I like the Boss Mustangs, the 60's Camaro Coupes and the Javilens.

igor@af, Yes the GTO is Mitsubishi, most of the cars here
are from Japan. In the US I think they are called 3000GT
VR4. I was 55kph over that was 2 years ago. Do that now and you start walking to work. That was in the 56
pickup testing the blower, How do you make them noisey can't hear that nice blower niose, Thanks.

I thought it was the 427 CobraJet or 427 Super CobraJet in the GT500? I only driven a 69 GT350, that was pretty quick.

GT500 was mostly available with the 428. Some 427 powered cars were made.

I like all classics really, but classic American cars are my main interest. Everything from V16 Cadillacs, finned 50s boats, musclecars, everything.:bandit:

TheMan5952, You will love owning and driving a classic
The feel and the sound and looks, most moden cars lookalike. With Classic's at lest you can tell what they are and what year they are and the value doesn't drop
like new ones.
