    There are too many choices!
    63 Falcon convertible, I have this one
    57 Rambler Rebel, This is my dream car!

    After those two, I'd like any 57-9 Dodge or 59 -60 Plymouth sedan, hardtop or convertible, just because of the fins!

    I had them, but sold two of them....so I guess there really isn't an answer, for me. My desires keep changing.

  5. I intend to keep my old beater & the wagon, but if I never have another old car I will be content, I have had a lot of them in the past. HRP

    Assuming money is no object:
    1. Phantom Corsair
    2. Buick Y job
    3. 1933 Studebaker Land Cruiser

    First 2 are unique, the Studebaker has only 3-4 still around. 1938-Phantom-Corsair-at-the-2016-Amelia-Island-Concours.jpg 1938-Buick-YJob-Concept5.jpg Stude.jpg

    I'm afraid I couldn't narrow it down that far, maybe a top ten? And even at ten the top three would vary on any given day. There's just too many cool cars in this world.

    Any ‘62-63 Pontiac Super Duty big car. I’ll make it easy and not even specify the trans. Loud Bang has a pic prolly ready...lol
    I’m sure the closest I’ll ever come is a clone of some sort.

    The other two I already own...my ‘66 GTO (bought it 36 years ago, it’s still in my father’s name) and the ratty ‘64 GTO (avatar) that my wife bought and allows me to drive it daily. I get asked when we are going to restore it often. Hmmm. If that requires taking it off the road for more than a few days then I guess never!!
    Honestly I figure the Good Lord could take me tomorrow so I better enjoy it while I can...

    In retrospect I like all of the early super stock cars regardless who made them. I could own any number of wagons too.

    Regards, Randy

    I bought my 64 Camino when I was 16, and did everything a 16 year old does in it. Still have it 30 years later. It'll never leave.

    My parents bought a Datsun 240Z new in 1972, my mom drove it daily for 30 years. I got it in 2002, and sent it overseas to my brother in 2013. It will come back to me eventually. OT I realize, but on the list for forever cars.

    I like the project of my Henry J, but I'm not married to it. It could go potentially.

    That leaves room for one more. There are many, many cool cars I like. Today I think that could be filled by a 427 Cobra. And this coming from a guy with a Chevy background. But a raw, brutally fast car sounds like a lot of fun in an area with nothing but winding mountain roads where I live.

    I'd fail miserably and still have stuff stored in garages all over town.

    It'd be easier on us addicts if you narrow it down to like which three Model A's would you have, or what 40's cars would you own, maybe even 50-54 as a class, how about 55-65. :eek:
    Just sayin' because I doubt anyone on here could stick to a list of three. You ever tried to pick out just one Hot Wheel?

    HighBoy Roadster, Had. 32 Ford 3 window Coupe, Had. 51 Mercury, Have and for sale. My lifetime car is my OT Camaro ragtop purchased new, wife or kids will sell that when I check out. The only car I didn't get in my later years would be a 57 Chevy, my first car at 16, now I spent the money on a Snowbird nest, so I guess the 57 is not going to happen, BUT if I've learned anything in life it's "Never say Never"

    People would think I am a liar if I told the cars I've had over the last 60 years.
    right now I could feel content with a 34 Ford coupe (3 or 5 window is OK) a 49-51
    Ford coupe, and a 1962 Chevy Bel-Air hardtop. When do you think I can expect them?
