i actually want (in no order):

1. 1963 Aston Martin Project dp214

2. 1948 Porsche 356 Roadster

3. Nissan Nismo SS 350Z concept

4. 1973 Datsun 510

5. 1992 or above Nissan 300zx TT

6. 1962 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible

7. 1992 GMC Typhoon

8. Pagani Zonda C12-S 7.3

9. Some kind of 1st gen hummer to go off roading in

10. Mercedes Benz SLR


Keep in mind, none of us could pick just ten cars. Some of these are just flavors of the week. Some, like the 300zx and the datsun are cars I have been interested in for a long time now. They may not be the most expensive, but they are what appeals to me. Some, I would simply like to experience, considering the great history behind them.

You mean a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird.

In 1968, Ford dominated NASCAR with their Torino Talladega. So, in 1969 the Dodge boys came back with the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona (based on the Charger). Dodge took the lead again. In 1970, their was a racer that was contracted to Plymouth. He wanted to race a Charger Daytona, but due to his contract he couldn't, so the 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird (based on a Roadrunner) was introduced. Because it was NASCAR, a certain number of the car had to be produced to the public in order for it to be allowed to race in NASCAR. So, in 1969 the Charger Daytona was sold to the public, and in 1970 the Roadrunner Superbird was. Both were only sold for a single year, and they are both amazing cars.

I thought that aerodynamics played a part in that. I remember hearing that the '69s were a safety concern because of downforce or weren't doing as well as they were supposed to, thus the change in the bodystyle. The superbird is basically a charger with a nosecone and wing...?

Just seems like a bunch of supercars. Very cliche and impersonal to me. It kind of lacks passion. Seeming like you like them because they are expensive, or very desireable to everyone; not because they make your heart sink everytime you see a picture of one.

That's just what it seems like, and is my opinion.

Re: what top 10 cars do u want in your garage?

yea no problem. i'm glad you didn't take offense to that. it's just uninteresting seeing the same cars all the time, namely the mclaren. common opinions i guess.

Agreed Prelewd, the Mclaren does seem to appear on every list but keep in mind it is the ULTIMATE road car, peoepl will want them given an opportunity.

It seems that some people take it a little over the top and just put on the most exspensive and/or popular cars> You are allowed to put whatever you want, but I guarantee you that everyone who picked a 2003 Lamborghini or Ferrari will want the 2004 model if this topic comes up next year.

That's why I have looked at a lot, I mean a lot of cars, taken my needs into consideration, along with practicality and a few other items, here's the new and improved version.

1. 2004 Porsche Cayenne S
2. 2004 Lotus Elise (US Spec) -> Modified to look like a Sport 190
3. 1998 Ferrari 355 Berlinetta
4. 1997 Porsche 911 (993) GT2

I got the grocery getter, the gala goer, the track star and the weekend fun machine.

BTW, white2rabbit, tasteful list, the Novitech is by far the closest thing to sex on wheels, one of the few tuned cars done right, oh so right.
