    Here's mine. Happens to be a Toyota. The 2000 GT. I fell in love with this car when I used to play Gran Turismo back in the days, about 20 years ago. Have never seen one in person though. I should have tried to buy one back then as they're going for $1,000,000+ now. Guess I'm never going to own one now unless I hit the lottery.

    Domestic classic muscle cars: 1972 Chevelle 454 SS, I would also do a 1970 with the dual headlights.

    My all time favorite would be a 66 Chevelle 396 car.

    Imports: I am pretty sure all my needs and wants would be taken care of in a Nissan GT-R

    My father had a pretty cool replica of one of these back in the day (cant find pics of his). If I had the space and the extra funds, I'd love to get another one for us to drive around

    image.jpg When I returned home from the Vietnam war, I bought a new 1968 Roadrunner for $2900. The Roadrunner rates as a "runner up" favorite, but my all time favorite: '65 Shelby Cobra. The Cobra sold for $5500 new.
    Trivia note: the Roadrunner hp was 335, weighed 3405 lbs. and 0-60 was 7.1 sec. My Tundra's hp is 381+, weighs 5600 lbs. and 0-60 in 6.6 sec. Wow. Technology has come a long way!

    Have to add my name to the Cobra. Have a buddy in Castle Rock that bought one new. Still has it. Raced it for a while till he wrecked it. Rebuilt it and now just enjoys driving it. Would like to build up a replica but have to build my dream plane next.

    One of my favorite all time street cars. Not overly fast, but fun times.

    Maybe it's because I'm a fan of James Bond movies, but out of all the foreign cars my favorite is an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish

    I had an 88 GT convertible back in my early 20s. Just like the one in the pic. Unfortunately I totalled it within 3 weeks... Young and dumb. I love that stock they are fast and easy to modify. They can be overly fast if you spend a little money!

    I know what you mean, the lx was probably a little faster. I would eat some cars of the line, but top end lacked. I got chewed up by a 300z, it wasn't pretty.

    It has SLP headers and exhaust all the way to the tips. Computer tuned, modified ram air intake, throttle body bypass, shaved throttle body plate stop pad for 90 degree open throttle, smooth bellow, custom trans am floor mats and traction bars. It used to be wicked loud but I had to take off the high flow cats to pass emissions and the factory cats drained some HP and sound. Its a badass ride though, I love it!

    Explode the 10 bolt yet?

    If you ever pull the heads, ensure you pull those crappy lifters out and put good ones in.
