    A car that starts with factory ignition system (not a screwdriver, two wires touching, or nickel), never had any windows replaced, four wheels that decent thread all around, hood that stays down, AC and heater that works and all doors that are supposed to open, can open and stay closed. Basically everything my car isn't.

    I can dream bigger after I have that.

    Had a '70 Chevelle and a '65 Mustang, loved them, but was in over my head. I'd love to pick up another Chevelle at some point.

    Right now I'm toying with a chance to get a '69 GTO Judge. Might do it, but it needs some serious work. Need to make sure I have the time and money to do it up right.

    ivo don't worry about those things called semi's I jousted one and won. He took out one of my tires, I took off two of his. :) It was in a Ford probe, a nice little sports car like that yellow one. Got out of it with a scratch on my arm and some broken car. Its why my dream car is so generic, cars are dispensible.

    I can't say that I have. What car would you compare it to in regards to size? Where did you see one?

    If I have to pick again then, I'd have to go Ferrari Enzo or maybe Lamborghini Diablo. I'm a big fan of the Gallardo as well, Lamborghinis just have that jaw dropping styling to them (not to mention I'm sure they're quite a thrill to drive).

    Realistically? Mercedes S550... nothing says "I'm better than you" than this car. I have seven years of school before I can even think about this car (PharmD/PhD in medicinal chemistry)

    Auto-my-league car? Maybach 62! BOSS!


    Notable mentions: Audi R4 (they're trying to keep it $40k starting price!), the new sportback trends (prosche panamera, Audi A7)

    btw, Audi must have the Ted Thompson of hiring their design team... simply amazing. too bad Audi's depreciate like hell, but hopefully in the future, I'll have enough money to think depreciation is trivial.

    I was at a dealership in Chicago that was selling one.

    I would say a porsche boxter. It should be 1.5x the size it is. I loved the car til I say it in person. The opposite of the porsche panamara. I hated it in magazines but then saw one in person and really liked it.

    Sat in an Enzo, but never drove one. If your bigger then 6ft good luck. But by far the tightest fit for a car was the Jaguar XJ 220. Amazing car, tiny seat. Looks wise its one of my favorites though.

    Love the Lambos.

    I'm assuming by your posts that you are basketball-tall??

    I'm fairly short, so I couldn't care less about the size of a carrera gt.
    The performance alone would be enough for me to buy it. Not to mention the sound that comes out of that thing!

    My pic would be easy. A 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing.

    They were the pinnacle of performance during the golden age of auto racing

    If I'm basketball tall I'm point guard size :p

    Trust me the gt is girly small. It's weird, it's a supercar so I expect it to be bigger I guess. Enzo long would be good.
