The 1976 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. Car I had in high school. Looked almost exactly like this:



Bicentennial Edition. Had the 350 V-8 Rocket engine. Plush interior, with leather accents. Air conditioning. 8-track player. Power everything. Bench seats, front and back. Could fit 6 adults. My dad borrowed it one weekend, and crashed head on into a lightpost. Totalled it. I never forgave him.

My dream car is..

don't laugh...

1958 Ford Edsel Bermuda 4dr 9-passenger wagon, with the urinal front grill and wood paneling on the sides.



Why?? I drove a Maroon 1999 Taurus for several years. Ever look for a maroon late model Taurus in the Wal-Mart parking lot. Guaranteed there's at least 5 of them. I want a car that's guaranteed that there will only be one in any given parking lot (outside of an Edsel car show).

Also, my grandfather had one just like that, and I've got alot of good memories in the back seat of that wagon, heading down for ice cream.

And, eventually, I'll get my other dream car back. 1966 Plymouth Barracuda, metallic pale green with a slant six and all the fixins. My dad currently has it, and I'll get it back when he passes on.

Beautiful car. I slept off a hardcore drunk in one after a local band concert many a moon ago. The concert was held on a vintage car lot, and the beer was a-flowin'. I woke up the next morning in the back of the Edsel (not sure exacly what year), and let me tell you, there was room to spare. It was funny as hell... my brother, who worked at the lot, even left me a map showing me where I could crawl under the gate to get out.

Fun times.



Here's my current ride, a '67 Galaxie. Like the pic, mine is a white 4-door...





And here's probably the favorite of my previous rides, a '71 Buick Electra. Mine was a light tan. Man, that thing was a highway yacht...




I am not adverse to ricers though, having also been in much love with my 81 Celica Supra...




Mine was beautiful black, but it was the special edition with spoilers on the front and back (as seen in the lower pic), and came with a upgraded sport suspension. The car was hot, I tell ya!

From a fan site...
In 1981, the Supra received a little more performance when it switched from the 2.6-liter SOHC 4M-E to the 2.8-liter SOHC 5-ME. The larger bore and increased compression ratio (3.27" vs. 3.15", and 8.8:1 vs. 8.5:1) was good for an additional 6 horsepower at the same 4800rpm, and 9 lb-ft of torque 1200rpm higher at 3600rpm. A much-needed Sport Performance Package became an option which included sport suspension, raised white-letter tires, and spoilers front and back (see photo to right). Alas this is the last year that an 8-track stereo tape deck is to be offered.

M1! Very nice.

I have a loong list of dream cars. Funny for a guy who hates spending money on them.

My no expenses-barred car would be Ruf CTR-2 (not a Porsche!!!)


Slightly lower on the price range, you'd be looking at an M5 or an M3 CSL...

As far as a classic car there's only a '69 Camaro SS for me, and it has to be Daytona Yellow:


SUV? A Land Rover Defender please:
. I would actually like to buy one on the last year they make them (2008, I believe).

A practical car? An E36 540i --- no iDrive for me, thank you.


My current car, a '96 328is, is pretty much my dream car. Could use new upholstery and a better radio, but I'm pretty happy.

I would love to remember the British makers of some crazy 3-axle SUV that was used for search and rescue and could scale a 3-ft vertical if approached by one. Don't recall.

Also I remember someone's answer on this forum years ago: "Mercedes S600 BRABUS... If it's good enough for the Queen of England..."

Which reminds me, did Randy ever get the Lotus Elise?

Had the exact same care in high school. 1976 model year, same color, even the same style top with the dark blue. Purchased for $600, sold for $600 3 years and 60,000 miles later. Went through 1 tranny but she was a fun car. One damn long hood too...

The Mustang II was a crime against nature. My wife and I have decided that if we ever win the lottery, we're going to get a classic muscle car from the 60's.
Of course, we need to actually buy some lottery tickets now and again to amke that happen.

I'll have to dig up a picture of the 66 Mustang (coupe) I had in high school and college. I loved that car, even when the oil pan exploded while driving down the highway. That was when I sold it and went "practical."

I miss that car. Someday I'll have another...
