    Strangely enough, I don’t really have a list. But, if I did, there would surely be a 56-57 vette and 35 Ford 3-window coupe on it. I guess maybe that is a list. :rolleyes:

    Right now I'd like to find the Two Man car I sold to Jim Etter in the late 1970's. Last photo from 1980 DSCF9001.JPG

    C1 Corvette
    C2 Corvette
    A sedan delivery, Just about any brand
    65 GTO
    66 or 67 GTO
    Pre 1973 Hurst Olds
    Jag XKE roadster preferred, maybe a coupe, no to a 2+2
    No particular order as to which I desire most.
    I have had to opportunity to buy most of them and the money to buy them at the time I found each one. Just the timing was wrong or my pop gave me a hard time about the idea.

    41 coupe

    I don't know how, But I have been able to get just about everything on my list. The problem is I had to always sell one to get another one. I have managed to keep my 55 and 63 Impala though.

    I've been lucky. Owned or built every car i've ever wanted except one. Alfa Romeo 158 (my avatar). Supercharged straight eight, 4 speed, single seater with unparalleled style and engineering. It will always be the ultimate and unattainable bucket list hotrod to me. And at this stage in my life, i've realized a better use for that bucket is to mix up the fabric dope that'll help get my feet off the ground.

    How about a car that never breaks, gets great gas mileage , very fast and cost little money to buy or build. Pre 65 of course.

    I've had many that at one time I just had to have..after awhile something else would come up "I just had to have"..out with the old, in with the new.
    That pretty much describes my history with car ownership.
    I find at times it's the hunt/acquisition/building that excites me, but after a time it fades.
    In the end, I just want to be sure I have no regrets.
    One car I've always wanted is a '55 Nomad..hmm

    My "bucket list" is very short and have both of them: 1956 Nomad and 1940 Ford coupe
    That being said, my "be nice to have anyway" list has 59 cars on it!

    Any on my bucket list are going to have to come pretty well finished if I ever get enough coins to pursue any of them.
    I've had a thing for 57 Buick Cabrillo wagons for years on end and didn't try to buy the one I spotted years back.
    I wouldn't mind having my old 51 Merc back and making a hand full of changes to put it back to the way I would want it. That is just a wheel and tire change and hauling a batch of stuff to the chrome shop. The car is plenty nice except I don't like the look the guy I sold it to put on it but it is all unbolt, have plated and bolt back on and swap out the wheels and tires and put hubcaps on it. Two days of labor and 4K will fix it.
    Since going to Deuce days in 2019 I have developed a real thing for one of those and have my eye on one that would take winning the power ball but I would only make two small changes on it and done.
