My 47 tudor redone, a model A highboy with a hemi, and a 34 ford tudor
Jalopy Joker, I love that truck, do you know anything about it?
My Dad's D/Gas `40 Willys, (same car that's in my avatar), my `56 Bel Air, and an A/GS `37 Chevy Coupe.
Ive had two out of three---
First, my 1953 Olds Super 88 two door sedan that I drove to and from school in the late 50's, Then my 1962 E-Type Jaguar Roadster purchased new from BMC/ San Francisco in 1962.
Third choice might be a new GT350 as seniority (and senility!) are starting to set in!
Chopped '32 Ford 5 window (have it)
Short bed, big window Ford unibody pickup (have it)
'55 Chevy Sedan Delivery, SBC/4 speed (need it)
Any three vehicles to have? That is the question. Well, if I’m honest I’ll go with these three. . it’s a family thing.

1940 Willys coupe, 1964 sport Fury , front engine dragster ( have ) .
1. My first car back: 1966 Caprice 2 dr hdtp with 396, TH400, buckets, console, factory gauges, etc. Would love to find another one that I could afford.
2. My '56 Nomad that I've owned now for 28 years and over 300,000 miles.
3. My '40 Ford coupe.
Two out of three ain't bad, and who knows, I might find another '66.
Of course, as I have shared many times with my buddy @drdave, I've whittled my "like to have" list down to a mere 59 cars!
34 3 window...fenderless . 56-62 Vette not numbers matching , big power , 4spd. And not on topic don't give a shit ...69 Z28.
63 split window vette
70 Dodge Challenger (like the one I usta have) but with a hemi
427side oiler anything!! No really 64 Falcon 427 FE with a Lenco tranny
I get it nice collection.
Always impressive collection.
A dual cowl sj duesenberg
A 55 chevy napco
A caddy powered 40 deluxe coupe
I sure hope my wife can have 3 also
My genie 32 3 window, a Hemi challenger and a Deusenburg.
Yeah right, dream on!
Nope couldn't do it...I like waaaaay to many too choose.....and that's my problem.
This should be obvious in my case. First would be another 56 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery, a 56 Chevrolet Model 150 Handyman Wagon, and a 56 Chevrolet Model 150 Utility Sedan. Of course, all with SBC engines, 4-speed transmissions, and LOW rear end gears. I could't afford the insurance on them, but I can still dream.
I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
Milners 1932 Ford,
Pete and Jakes yellow 1934 Ford Coupe,
My dads first Mercedes Benz it was a 1957 220S 4 door sedan...
'54 Ford F100
'65 Buick Riviera
Had 2 out of the 3 and, of course, this list will change in about 30 seconds.
32 stock height(no chop) 3 window Ford,1956 t-bird 312 3 speed, First gen Corvette! Pete
62 Corvette, 57 Chevy, 34 Willys coupe (steel). Funny I've had all these cars. only one left is the 57.
A '29 A rpu with a 341 DeSoto hemi, a late '40s Hudson pickup and a mid-'30s Packard coupe.
So many choices but mine would be... 1940 Ford Pickup
1937 Ford Coupe
1961 Caddy Coupe de Ville
We talking fun cars or cars period? Like I’ve got to drive it to work when it’s -30 and snowing a crap ton, and when it’s 112 and disgusting?
Because that tweaks the list a bit
A 40's Dodge truck for my daily driver,
A Ford product to trailer to shows,
and a 55-57 chevy parked in the pasture.
Its impossible to get it down to three with the ones I have. I think about that all the time as I get older, what I need to get rid of.... let alone of cars still on my bucket list like a 34 5W.
32 5 Window
36 3 Window
37 Shop Truck
Plus a few more projects
There was a thread similar to this a while back, it would be interesting to see how the taste has changed by the individuals that posted on that thread.
I will keep the old beater I have loved for 31 years now and the '54 wagon, I would still like to add a roadster to the stable. HRP
A stock 1927 Model T Ford Tudor sedan in perfect condition.....
A 1937 Chevrolet Coupe with a little pepper.
My F-1 with a 331 Cadillac and F1 top shift.
