and what is everyones dream car, or truck, suv, etc. I'm just curious and bored. I, myself, would like to have a Rolls Royce, or a Benz (eclass) (I love sport mixed with luxury) or a Lincoln Navigator, etc. Does anyone have their dream kick a$$ car or truck, etc.?


I don't think no one has posted this type of thread before, so its somethin new

I drive an 83 Dodge Ram and the family car is a 94 Chevy Astro. Our current project cars are 2 66 Dodge Dart GT's one a slant 6 and the other a V-8. I've owned a 68, 69 and 70 Darts also, as well as a 69 Coronet. Had a 67 Tempest a 70 Impala 2 door and a 79 Impala Station Wagan. Also had an old Ford pickup (the only Ford we will own) My favorites are the 66's but the best one I had was the 70 Dart 4-speed 340 posi-track black dual hood scoops, traction bars burn em off hot rod.

I don't drive very often, and my car, such as it is, is a '92 Mercury Tracer.

My fiance does the lion's share of the driving in her 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

My dream car? That's like asking me to pick who the hottest girl in the world is - too many choices, and I don't have a snowball's chance in hell of getting any of them...

I have a 1984 Z-28 Camaro with 5 speed manual transmission, 5.0 High Output engine and a 3.73 performance rear axel ratio that I drive every day.

My other car is a 1969 Corvette with a 427 and a 4 speed transmission. I am not real big on the late model cars as I like the older high performance cars.

If I could pick a car that would be my dream vehicle I would like to have a 1970 Plymouth Superbird with a 426 Hemi engine.

06-04-2001, 08:17 PM
I drive a 2001 4.0 Jaguar S-Type
My wife drives a 1999 Mustang
My son drives a classic 1967 Mustang
My oldest daughter drives a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage
My other daugher drives a mint condition 1991 Turbocharged Plymouth Laser

We have a spare car - 93 Ford Taurus for when a car goes in the shop (except mine - it comes with an automatic loaner Jag if it is in the shop) I hate that Taurus

06-04-2001, 08:17 PM
I drive a 1998 Grand Am GT. It is Red of course :)

As far as a dream car I don't really have one that stands out.

KS Smitty
06-04-2001, 08:17 PM
Excellent choices Rick! If I could pick a Vette though I'd probably want the 67 Stingray, for the looks more than performance. The newer Vettes are also extremely quick but I agree I like my muscle older. The fastest car I drove was a Eagle Talon a few years ago, the speedo was at 150 and I bet it was close. Man that's fast!!

Rick Stephens
06-04-2001, 08:37 PM

My Corvette I have had since 1970 and I am only the second owner. It is an all orginal Vette with the factory off the road exhaust and is in excellent condition. I have had it up to about 180 mph.

06-04-2001, 08:49 PM
I currently drive a 2000 Conversion GMC Yukon. It was stripped straight from the factory and nearly every conceiveable option placed in it. Some of my favorites include the built-in radar detector with front, rear, & side detection in the grill, aftermarket trim, a tv that folds out of the ceiling, VCR (no DVD - YET), remote control, 4 custome captain chairs, 18" wheels, jeesh, I could go on & on.

It was both a 30th b-day presend and a celebration of paying off all my divorce related debt.

My dream restoration car is a '67 Chevelle SS. My psuedo realistic dream car is the Jaguar XKR Convertible.

06-04-2001, 08:53 PM
I recently had to junk my bonneville, but i'm working on getting my older brothers 84 Camaro from him, few more $'s to go :)

Dream car - 1972 Chevelle Malibu (Preferably convertible)

Dream truck - 1993 Chevy Z71 with a 3-inch body lift, new rims, and the biggest engine i can afford) ::currently working on this::

Dang! You guys have neat cars! I drive a 1993 red Ford Probe, 4 cyl, CD. Its a good little car, I suggest that no one gets a Probe (I mean a used one, they were discontinued in 96'), they have bad transmissions and no one (at least in my neck of the woods) works on them. I had to have it sent up to Lincoln to get it fixed, and it did, I have a 9year warranty on it (I hope I don't have it for that long:eek: ). I had a choice of getting a different car (one that was not as good) or keeping that one and getting it repaired. I chose to get it repaired.


wishes I had one of Jim's cars. I'll take the Jaguar, Jim!

I'll give you my email address and we can discuss! and I'll pay cash for it!...$680! take it or leave it!!! j/k! :p I wish!:D

06-04-2001, 08:58 PM
My wife drives the 1999 Toyota RAV-4. I drive the 1991 Toyota Extended Cab Pick-up. I'm looking at picking up a Toyota MR-2 Spyder once we've got the RAV paid off.

I've always had sensible cars... Just once I want to have a completely impractical car. I think the Spyder qualifies.:cool:

I'll be driving my Probe for awhile (throughout college). :(

the red sucker has 128,000miles on it!

06-04-2001, 09:06 PM

Nothing wrong with that. I've had the Toyota P/U for 8 years now. Just went over 130,000. She's just barely broken in. I expect to get at least 250,000 out of it before I have to think about getting a new one.;)

Rick Stephens
06-04-2001, 09:06 PM

It is just getting broken in. My 1984 Z-28 has 270,000 miles on it and has never had a valve cover off the engine. I have had to replace a few minor items but it runs as good now as it did when I bought in new.

06-04-2001, 09:10 PM
Misplaced, Rick,

I hope its just getting broken in!, I'm going to have that car for awhile! Also, I feel its going to be hard (when I get the cash) to give it up, me and that car have been through everything! I'll probably keep it for as long as I can.

I have a 2001 Honda Civic. I got sick of high dollar gas, so I got rid of the V8 and got a car that gets almost 40 miles per gallon.

Forgot to mention the 80 Datsun my sister-in-law gave us. She was gonna send it to the junkyard and we brought it home and the little weenie would run forever on a cup of gas and lasted us 5+ years. Hell I'd still be drivin it but the body is ready to fall off the frame.

still miss the mileage

06-04-2001, 10:10 PM
I drive a '92 Mazda B2200 pickup. It has 107,000 miles on it, and still does not leak a bit of oil (excuse me while I desperately find something wooden to knock on). Replaced the timing belt at 67,000 as a precautionary measure, and have been told the damn thing will run trouble-free for another 100,000 miles, provided the timing belt gets changed every 65,000 or so. My wife has a 98 Honda CRV that I never get to drive unless she's out of town-I wish she'd get another job that took her out of town more often-I love that car.

06-04-2001, 10:14 PM
I have a 1987 5.0 Mustang Convertible that I'll NEVER sell. It's at my mom's in her garage. It only comes out on sunny summer days!

I currently drive a 2001 Ford Escape. It's the best SUV that I've ever owned! I have a wife that would not let me purchase my dream SUV which is the BMW X 5. Maybe in 3 years...

I presently drive a 2000 Grand Prix GTP. Love that car. Right mix of power, handling, comfort and price.

Dream car would be the GMC Syclone - 0-60 in the 4's and mid 13's in the 1/4 in a pickup. That or a Buick Grand National. [Incidentally the two platforms for the precursor to the present Supercharged 3800 I presently have under the hood]. I still salivate at the thought of getting this pavement schorcher then blithely telling the insurance agent "quote me for an early '90's mid-size pickup."

BTW - If they ever get the GTX/G8 to market, I'm there. Grand Prix body, AWD/VersaTrack, 19" wheels, 350 hp Corvette LS-1.


06-04-2001, 10:38 PM
My current vehicle is a Nissan Pathfinder

My dream vehicle - a Hummer of course.

PS - Those big ugly guards by the window are only worn in the woods!

06-04-2001, 10:42 PM

Maybe in about 7 to 10 years I will have my dream car a Lamborghini Diablo or that years equivalent and you will have established yourself in your career and can have the Jag.

06-04-2001, 10:46 PM
Most impressed by some of your cars.

I currently drive a '99 Monte Carlo. Love it. Learned to drive in a '75 Monte and always wanted one.

My favorite car was my '85 Olds Cutlass Supreme Coupe. Didn't have all the options that my Monte has, but I put 174,000 miles on it. I still get a little misty-eyed whenever I see one. Great vehicle.

Dreams cars would be an '87 Grand National, or a 67-69 Chevelle SS. A new Corvette would work, as well...

06-04-2001, 11:19 PM
1995 Ford Taurus SE (white)

Very solid and efficient. No complaints here... :)

06-04-2001, 11:21 PM
My car is a '66 Chevy Impala convertible (I still need to put a new top on it... ) ... my dream car would be a 1979-1981 Ferrari 308 GTS...


Oh ... by the way... it is kind of academic for me until I move back... no car in Spain... lots of walking!!!

06-04-2001, 11:55 PM

1991 Acura Legend LS two-door coupe. Luxury and speed.

Love it.

My wife-

1994 Toyota 4-Runner. Lift kit, winch, brush guard. The green monster. Urban assault vehicle.

The car I should have never gotten rid of:

1976 Pontiac Trans Am. 455 H.O. Black/black. Gold bird.

06-05-2001, 12:13 AM
My current car is a 1993 Chrysler Lebaron convertible. I like the car, it's just that damn Chrysler's are built together with the cheapest parts, and they always cost the most to replace.

When I was 16, my dad bought me the shell of a 1988 Pontiac Firebird. He rebuilt the entire thing from the ground up. He put a corvette engine in it, painted it black. The only thing it was missing was the name Kit. Damn that thing was fast as hell, the only problem was that my insurance money went fast as hell to every month. 200 dollars a month at the age of 16 is no easy fee to pay off.

My dream car is a 2001 Black BMW Roadster, or a 2001 Pontiac Firebird convertible. Hopefully when I graduate college, I can score a sweet enough job to score one.

This is an exact replica of my vanbeast..(as my wife calls it) kids love it.. I love it too..the vcr and video game system comes in handy on those 3 hour drives to the hangout on the Eastern side of the state. ( I do wish the paint job was a bit more tame however...Oh well)

My other car is a company owned ford F-150...(I hate it)

06-05-2001, 04:54 AM
Currently a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

I don't really have a dream car right off hand....I would have to think about that for a while

06-05-2001, 04:59 AM
Old_geezer's current car is a 1999 Chrysler Sebring LXI with a sound system that's out of sight. I think it's called going through your second childhood although my son says I'm wasting the sound system with the music I play. :rolleyes:

My dream car is not available as Logical-Jim already owns it :D but I'd go for a Jaguar XKR covertible also.

06-05-2001, 05:52 AM
I drive a 1978 Chevy Shortbed 4X4...350, 33X12.50's, rear window rolls down, runs good...its my daily driver, but I run it in the mud races when they roll into town. It's perfect for a redneck night out.

My fiance drives a 93 Chevy Cavalier RS.

My dream vehicle would be a 69 Camaro RS/SS.

I used to have a 70 Chevelle SS...had to part ways with it when getting my first job.

Okay, after reading what some of you drive, I'm a bit embarrased to share this! ;)

Currently drive a '94 Mazda pickup ... has 98K on it, already had the transmission replaced (freaking Ford, which is what it essentially is). Good truck, all-in-all though. It's the second Mazda I've had (had an '86 that ran forever) to go along with the 79 Mustang I had before that (tried to kill it, wouldn't die) and the '78 Cutlass my sister totalled (it was sweet, too ... 305 bored .30 over with a 327 cam, forged pistons ... looked like a grandmothers car, but went over 140 mph!!).

My first car was a 1970 Mustang with more miles on it than the Space Shuttle. which is probably as close as I'll get to my dream car, which is:

1966 427 cid Shelby Cobra. The thing will do 0 to 100 mph back to 0 in 13 seconds. While most you find now are 289s with quad 2-barrel carbs, there are a few 427s out there. Now if I can just get $500,000 to buy one ...

~~Needs to win the lottery.

06-05-2001, 06:04 AM
I drive a '95 Dodge Dakota Sport (Red). This is the 3rd Dodge truck I have owned and will probably by another after this one!!

I have taken very good care of the truck since I bought it in Nov of '94. It only has 64,000 miles on it.

My wife -
2000 Dodge Stratus (Amethest - a.k.a. PURPLE! her favorite color). It is a terrific car and drives like a dream. It is fully loaded and gets great gas milage. After we bought it she found out about the PT Cruiser and wants one of those someday.

Dream machine? Believe it or not I would love to have a FULL size Dodge Ram Sport (V8). I am not much into cars. I have friends that own Corrvettes and my brother owns 2 Lexus. I can't see spending for one car an amount that can by 2 or 3 cars!

06-05-2001, 06:58 AM
My car is a 90 Honda civic SI in Chiefs RED with 8 inch arrowheads on each side. Not much into cars anymore either. A red CRV would be nice though to take to the beach.

06-05-2001, 07:09 AM
Currently a 92 Merc Sable. Great car and will probably run forever. Dream car? A Viper

06-05-2001, 07:10 AM
My current love/hate realationship is with a 86 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. The original luxury SUV. This is one of the old full-size Jeeps. They kept the same body style on these from 63-91. (if it ain't broke...)
When everything is working right, this is an awesome rig. Nice enough to turn a few heads(honest!), but still likes it a little rough now and then.
The Mrs. drives a 2001 Olds Alero. I don't drive it much, but it seems to be a pretty good car. Very good factory stereo.

My dream: I'd have to go with Rick. the 70 Hemi Superbird.
I was a big richard Petty fan growing up.

I drive a 97FORD!!!!(first on race day)(for off road driving) f150 4x4 with the 5.4 V8....i've got 35's now. I like the truck, It goes where I want to mud, snow, or street. The only thing I don't like is the gas mileage...and I cover alot of ground in a weekend...

Considering a 2001, but don't like the crash test I saw on the news last night.....also considering buying a new car and a 78 or 79 Ford, put a 429 in it and some swampers.....so I could drive over your meager girly cars;)

Extreme...If you go to mud runs....are you familiar with a red 66 ford named "Brutus"? and a 78 ford stepside with an alluminum miller lite hood driven by his wife?

06-05-2001, 08:55 AM

06-05-2001, 09:53 AM
I drive a 1992 Nissan 240sx but will be getting my dream car in a couple of months. There have been 50 posts and not one person has talked about the new 2 seater convertable that Ford is just starting to produce this week. It is a 2002 Thunderbird. It was reviewed this month in Motor Trend. I always thought it was a crime when they took the late 50's two seater convertable and slowly turned it into a giant POS by the 70's. They have already presold 18,000 units and are only going to make 25,000 this year. I put a deposit down almost a year ago after I saw it on the internet.

06-05-2001, 10:25 AM

Yep, thats a bad *** truck...I just run old blue in the stock class...costs 20 bucks to run and 11 to clean it when I'm done ;)

lovin the mud..

06-05-2001, 10:30 AM
HC_Chief - Nope, I didn't raise it. I'm not skilled enough with vehicles to attempt somthing like that. That picture is pretty deceiving, its not quiet as high as it looks there. Only a 2" frame lift.

How do you like your Exterra? I grown to love Nissan and when I get a new vehicle I have in narrowed down to a Tacoma or Exterra. In my opinion, '95 was the last good year for the Pathfinder. They turned into 4-wheel drive mini-vans after that.

and I also drive a 1987 Toyota Camry. That car has been through 281,000 miles of pure hell from me and my friends and is still running alright. not great but just alright :D Somebody will probably pass me on the highway when i hit 300,000. I'm gonna get a huge sign and do just like they used to do on all those old cheesy Toyota commercials. I'll do anything to make people laugh.

06-05-2001, 12:10 PM
Brutus' owner is my uncle....I actually helped put the body on it when he was building it.....he sold it, but has it back now....and I'm pretty sure he's puttin' a new kickass motor in it.

The second truck that his wife drives is pretty good too....they have finished 1-2 a few times..

I think we're going down to ride dirtbikes with him too.

06-05-2001, 12:22 PM
Otter - I love it! The V-6 is only 170hp, but the torque is pretty good (don't have the figures handy) - it gets good mileage for a SUV (I get ~20mpg).

It gets around very well in 4H; in 4L, you can go just about anywhere. Lots of storage space and it comes with tie-slots in the cabin - so shifting cargo is not a concern.

I had the dealership throw in an internal bike rack - can load two mountain bikes and gear inside, then tie-down camping equipment on top! :)

I need a grill guard but they don't make 'em for the Xterra... guess they've had problems with after-market guards causing the airbags to fire. doh!

I looked at Pathfinders too - like you said, they're nice, but too 'cushy'. I wanted something I could drive anywhere & not worry about getting a scratch or tearing the leather interior, or spilling stuff - ya know? A TRUCK, not an oversized luxury car ;)

I bought my first Nissan before this vehicle: '91 240SX. <i>Loved</i> that car! Put over 100K on it in 4 years :) Traded it in on the Xterra - got great value on the deal (more than I could have sold it for)

06-05-2001, 02:00 PM
My dad drives a '97 Ford Explorer
my Mother just got a 2001 Nissan Maxima GLE
I just got my mom's old car a '98 Honda Accord (4D 6cyl, loaded)

The Maxima is very nice, drives great and is comfortable and quiet. I like my Honda though, it has good acceleration and drives pretty tight.

If I could have any car I'd probably take either a Porsche or a Lexus. Any truck and I'd choose an Escalade, RX300 or I really like the new Toyota Sequoia .

06-05-2001, 02:39 PM

My 1995 Pathfinder could beat up your Exterra!

I'll show ya cushy!

06-05-2001, 05:05 PM
I drive a 93 Mercury Sable (whoopie).

My dream cars, are a 57 convertable vette, a 64 Corvette Stingray, and just about any Ferrari. I also like the new vettes and the Dodge Viper.

Dream SUV, a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (or jst about any Jeep), and a Hummer for off-roading excitement.

Truck, Chevy Silverado. The new HD version is really cool.

06-05-2001, 05:21 PM
Another dream car I really like is the Plymouth Prowler. It just has a certain appeal to me.

I've seen the 2002 Thunderbird you're talking about, I'd drive that too!


matter of fact, I'd drive most of your guys cars!

06-05-2001, 06:52 PM
Currently I'm driving a cherry 1965 Chevy Van. I also have a 76 El Camino 400/350 , which my wife wants me to sell. My wife drives a 2000 Cherokee...It's a Jeep thing, your SUV wouldn't understand.

Dream Car? Porsche 911 Turbo.. any year, I'm not picky. That, or a Porsche Speedster. Black, with tan leather, but once again, I'm not picky.

Don't like most of the new cars, front wheel drive burnouts do nothing for me, and the fact that EVERYONE thinks they own a race car is weak. 60's and 70's Muscle Cars are becoming a dying breed.

06-05-2001, 06:59 PM

Do you still put up the old sign that goes with that van

"If this van's a rocking, don't be knocking"

Whenever I see those Vans that is what first comes to mind.

06-05-2001, 06:59 PM
I drive a 73 Coupe Deville. Everything is power and everything works.

It's got a 472 ci engine that gets a measly 10 - 13 mpg in town.

Don't really know what my dream car would be. Probably the M-1 Abrams tank :D

No way Cody!

That would destroy the integrity of this car. Caddy's like this are known for their smooth ride. I don't care for hydraulics anyway. What's so great about bouncing up and down?

06-05-2001, 07:48 PM

I can not think of the name for that to save my life! It is called a four someting!?! You get the picture :p

Yeah cannibal - when ya' gonna put the lo-lo package in and the Dubs on?

06-05-2001, 07:52 PM


No, I mean an alarm system :D

06-05-2001, 07:53 PM
Or should I have said curb feelers? :rolleyes:

What are "Dubs"? Rims?

06-05-2001, 07:56 PM
You know I got a glimpse of one of those things just the other day. It didn't have a bed though.

I don't think you should have hydraulics, I was just kidding. I don't get the point and the fun of having your car jump up and down, either.


likes your car and it is fine just the way it is

Yes, "dubs" are another name for "rims."


20inches...nothin less:D

I've actually seen a Low Rider contest on TV where they had a jumping contest to see which car could bounce the highest. Some the car's front end's were bouncing over 4 feet in the air.

It was impressive, yet rather silly at the same time.

06-05-2001, 08:02 PM
I've actually thought about putting some rims on it. If I do, they'll be stock aluminum rims from a more recent model Caddy.

I don't want my car looking too gaudy.

I just seen that picture of the limozine Truck! LOL!

06-05-2001, 08:02 PM
The only way it would be worth while is if you could jump over that ******* in front of you that is doing 50 in a 70 with his left blinker on! :cool:

When I look at that truck-limo picture the first thing pops into my dome is... "Only in America"!

Cannibal, The "20inches...nothin less" comment is a hip hop term. I was joking around. I'm the type of guy that doesn't "pimped out" my car. I just keep it the way it is. I like your car, and it doesn't matter if you add stuff or not, it'll still look good, IMO.

Some cars need to be "pimped out" because of how ugly they are.

Yes Cannibal - Dubs are 20" rims

non sequitor theater - did anyone see "Next Friday." A lot of people hated it, but it cracked me up, especially Ice's cousin in the burbs talking about how his rims were "20's."

"No. . . not 20's. . . but dey nice through. . . maybe 19's. . . I don't know."

Some pimped out cars look cool. I have to admit that.

06-05-2001, 08:11 PM
Not to worry Cody, I know you're just kidding.

I know about the "20 inch" rims too.

If you watch the show "Cribs" on MTV, they always show the vast car collections of the current rap stars and they are always talking about their "20 inch rims".

I seen that too, I liked that movie, I thought it was hilarious! Remember that big girl (to put it nicely:D ) that was chasing after Ice Cubes cousin, she was huge! I hated the parts where his car got messed up! That made me cringe!


had a nervous break down when the screetch of the key went across the side of the Lexus:eek:

06-05-2001, 08:13 PM
I liked the first "Friday" [funny as a muthafugga], but heard the second one sucked major arse.

Chiefs Pantalones
06-05-2001, 08:16 PM

You are right, the first one was funnier.

06-05-2001, 08:16 PM
When Chris Tucker opted out of the sequel, I opted not to watch it.

He made the first "Friday".

06-05-2001, 08:18 PM
Ice Cube's dad was hilarious in that movie. Always in the sh!tter stinkin up the joint.

Cube's dad was even better in Boomerang, with the mushroom suit, and stinking up the sh!tter [again] and 'gettin' it on with his wife.

The first Friday had a better overall story [Joker and his crew were very unfunny], but I actually liked the deliver of Mike Epps [Day-Day] better than Tucker.

That line about the 'big' sister getting all the hostess products before they even hit the shelves, still cracks me up.

My everyday ride won't impress you guys. It is a 98 Astro van I use for my Directv service van. It has a 4.3 liter V6 with Real fuel injection, not throttle body. Runs good for a service truck. There is a guy at Tulsa International Speedway that has a 4.3 liter in a Henry J that turns in the 9's. But my pride is a '55 chevy with a small block 400 / injected that I ran 10.88 with last weekend. The weather was overcast & perfect. But you guys seem to know about rims. I think my rims are turning while th tires aren't. I can't get any lower than the 10.8's. Any ideas?

The second Friday was not as good as the first, but it was pretty good. It would have been a h*ll of a lot better with Chris Tucker though. Joker was pretty hilarious though. "What the f*uck you do to my dog essay, thats cruelty to animals yo, he did nothing to you" I got both of them on tapes and watch them every so often.

Just because someone has a lift kit on their truck does not make them a redneck!

If you're getting into the 10's, it probably isn't your first trip there [ie, you know what you're doing, congrats].

On the traction front, get slicks, run them at low, low pressure [I saw a guy with a front wheel drive Civic that ran in the 8's, ran with 5-8 psi in the front wheels]. To keep the tires on the rims, custom drag rims have grips on the side. Otherwise, you can drill machine screws through the lip of the rim and anchor it in the tire.

Drive a 90 honda civic.....Lasted me through my last year of high school, college, and many a night I should not have been driving...

By all rights this car should no longer even roll, but it does. 5 trips to the shop in 7 years and 80,000 miles....

I will ALWAYS own a Honda...:D
