    Mine would be a replica of my Dad's 1937 Chevy coupe modified, an early 60's Econoline pick up and a 1935 to 1965 shop truck.

    I have my Deuce Roadster and a '46 Ford "Woodie". I often say my next car would be something like a '40 Ford Coupe or Tudor Sedan, but not go overboard on it. SBC, auto trans, 9" and disc brakes for reliability. I'd keep the body in primer and a Mexican blanket interior. As it is now, I drive the heck out of my cars, but when it rains the Woodie and Roadster take a week to clean. When the weather forecast is crap, I'll take the '40 and don't get stressed, drive it hard and put it away wet.

    Easy. A Ferrari 206 or 246 Dino, a '67 Camaro SS/RS with a 350 and four speed and,
    and, and...the oh so simple 1966 Nova Sport Coupe 327/300 with Powerglide that I
    had in high school in 1967.

    By the way, I sold my Nova to buy the '67 Camaro I mentioned.

    Something slow---Original model a, A good hotrod that is a handful to drive and a high dollar supercar to take to the track on weekends. Maybe an R8? None of them would have a/c.

    I just did this on a thread a while back and its hard to narrow it down other than my first choice,
    a 2 door post 55 chevy,
    Had several (no show stoppers) and sold em for one reason or another:rolleyes:

    Looking back, I have been very blessed to own a bunch of cool old cars and trucks over the years, one or two at a time, maybe not worth much at the time but if they had of been I might never have gotten to experience them.

    I could always clean one up and make up a set of wheels and tires etc. outta nothin tho if I do say so myself:D
