    I always say when I grow up I want to be Jay Leno, so a million bucks would be a start.

    But if you want a list;

    A two seater T-bird
    '63 Galaxie fastback
    '61 Galaxie
    '56 Ford Crown Vic or Sunliner
    '32 Five window
    '40 Ford coupe
    '30 or '31 Ford coupe
    '62 or early Corvette
    '65 Mustang fastback
    an old restored sprint car or midget
    an old restored stock car
    any British two-seat roadster

    . . . . . .that's just for starters.

    The McMullen '32, the way it looked circa 1965.

    Alternate choices would be Phil Cool's orange roadster, Gray Baskerville's car, the purple '32 Pat Ganahl brought out last year, Dean's roadster pickup, or Lowbeck's old burgandy '32.

    Any one of those cars would be fine with me, and you can keep the change.

    Top of my wish list is a 55 Nomad. I probably could find one for less than a mil. but it is still the ultimate for me. I would not trade one for anything yet listed!

    Number One: The Niekamp AMBR Roadster
    Number Two: Find and acquire the Lynn Yakel 32 5W Coupe.
    Number Three: Another 42-48 Plymouth Woodie Wagon
    Number Four: Lincoln Mark II Continental Coupe
    Number Five: 42 Barrel-Back Chrysler Town & Country Sedan
    Number Six: 53 Studebaker Loewy Coupe
    Number Seven: The Hirohata Mercury
    That should blow the bucks.

    Yup. Thats the one. A more perfect rod would be hard to find.
     
  21. Lee Pratts' 58 Impala, Jimmie Vaughns' 54 Ford and the Robert Lomas 34 3 window. Any leftover $ would go for something for the track/twisties, maybe an Audi R8 if the budget allowed.

    I agree.
    If that solution presented itself, I'd trade everything in the garage for it.

    But since I can't, the ones I have.

    Oh Crap, Just one! How could you do that to me! I'll narrow it to two. I'd compete with the other four or five guys that want the Niekamp car, but I'd cheat to win! Barring that, I would be eternally happy with a nice clean '34 five window, unchopped, full fendered, and powered by something fun. It would be a Ford, of course. Now, the first one would never change, I've loved that car since I was about ten years old and first read the articles in Rod & Custom about restoring it. The second one is somewhat subject to change with out notice.

    Last time I remember participating in a similar question it was unlimited to how much we could spend and I responded I would get a duesenberg and then get a paper route and use it on the route just to screw with peoples mind.
