What's everyone's favorite car? Mine's a Mini Cooper. I think it's perfect for magicians (oh wait, that's on topic!).

Bugatti Veyron or something like that, 0-190mph in 14 seconds. That's about the same time it takes my car to hit 60, also that car's top speed is 250mph.

I love DeLoreans. They're the greatest. I actually had (this is on topic, sorry) this idea of fixing a DeLorean to look like the Back to the Future time machine, and I was going to make it float!! I was planning on having hydrolic jacks from the middle of the underside, and wheels that turn sideways, so when you're standing next to it and it's parked it looks like nothing is supporting it (because you would have to bend over and look under to see the jacks).
P.S. I don't think ITR would work to well on a DeLorean

The Hummer 4WD. The ultimate toy for a redneck!!

Actually my favorite is the 1957 Chevy Bel-Air. Fire engine red! I have a better chance of being able to get a Hummer in my lifetime though.

I must be abnormal, but my fave car is the one I drive now, Volvo S80 T6 Premier. But I wouldn´t mind having a Hummer 4WD either.

My favorite is the new Lamborghini Gallardo. Smaller version with the engineering and engine design assistance of Audi. A great car I would love to own, but the money.

Now you're talking! I had a chance to buy an old hearse once, but it didn't run too well and it was baby blue. Baby blue! For a hearse!

I HATE VOLVO!!!!! They're coming out with a new car with GULL WING DOORS, my favorite doors in the whole world, and it's a car designed for women. HOW COULD THEY!!! I mean, if you're going to make a car for women only, don't put on super cool doors that I want on my car!!

MINI COOPER! Ever since I've seen Mr. Bean drive his yellow Austin Mini around England in his television show, it's been my dream car. I've never been in one but I hope I can fit, I'm pretty tall (6' 2" ish).
Message: Posted by: Mark Rough (Mar 23, 2004 09:14AM)
I wish I drove a Ferrari, but I'm pretty happy with my Mini. Yes Andini, you'd fit, at least in the front seat.

Two words,
PT Cruiser.
Wait, is that three words?
Or one word and two letters?
Anyway, coolest car of the last decade and the only new car I ever consided buying.
Message: Posted by: GlenD (Mar 23, 2004 10:55AM)
I agree with Payne about the PT Cruiser and even more so now with the convertable version. Although I have never sat in one yet and I sometimes have trouble being comfortable in certain cars, being 6'3".

For the Mini Cooper guys, I have a question; why do they call it a Mini Cooper? Is there a regular Cooper?
That thing ought to be called a micro Cooper!

Anyways my favorite (dream) car would be a McLaren (I would still have to sit in it first though).

1968 Ford Mustang with a 1994 HIGH performance EFI engine in it (12 second quarter mile).

All total control products racing suspension, plush seats, tilt steering, A/C, cruise, kenwood music keg, PS2.

When I pull up next to the new porches, vipers and vettes all eyes are on me.

Ok, I have to admit I have a soft spot for Autin 1300's from the early 70's. Fantastic car!

Altough the PT Crusier and Kihei Kids 1968 Ford Mustang would also make me pretty happy!

My 86 Fiero (okay it's a poor mans/womans version of a Ferrari) but it has custom lights and side panels. Been invited to take it to the race track this summer with other members of the Fiero club I belong to. zooooooooooom

For magic shows and all my pets I'd probably enjoy a Honda CRV but the Fiero is fun to drive.

Aaaahhhh... I love bugs! The last car I had was a 1968 Beetle. White with blue and silver flames going down the hood. And total leopard print interior! I sold it to a tattoo artist right before I moved. Man, I miss that car!

Dodge SRT-4
It's a 4cyl turbo 230hp.
Modifying the turbo to Phase 3 puts out approximately 300hp.

For a car that weighs next to nothing, that sucker can fly.

My 1960 Nash Rambler, cast iron flathead 6 engine, 3-speed on the column. That little car made it over the mountains in Oregon in a blizzard with no chains, leaving many other, bigger cars by the side of the road. Wish I still had it.
Message: Posted by: Reg Rozee (Mar 25, 2004 03:52AM)
For me it would be a toss-up between:

* the Batmobile (all the variants are cool, but I have a soft spot for the original)

* the Munstermobile (remember the race in "Munster Go Home"?)

* a black '65 Corvette Stingray

Lots of nostalgia firing here, I guess... :lol:

Oh man! The original 1966 Batmobile is the killer of all cars!

The car in Munsters Go Home was called the "Dragula". I have models of both Munster cars, the coach and the dragster. It just doesn't get musch cooler than that.

I once had a friend who bought this narly old white van and he let us paint it to look like the A-Team van! We even mounted toy machine guns to the inside walls. We were such nerds.

I'm also quite fond of the Oscar Mayer weiner van. But I think I would feel silly driving it.

Ferrari 550 Maranello (dream car)

Although...I REALLY want to get a BMW M3...but I REALLY don't have the money for that.

I just got an 86 Camaro from my uncle and drove it over 1,000 miles to get it home yesterday.
