What new car would you want? What old car? New I would buy a Bentley Continental. I have lusted for one for 40 years. And even a ten year old one is in the $80,000 range for a nice one. For an old car 1937 Cord Beverly sedan. I have always thought it was the most beautiful car made at that time, and it has worn well with time. Now days that is out of my range too.

Dodge Demon and Dusenberg Speedster.

That 9 second demon would be nice ! Honestly I would rather build an old car than buy one . My favourite uncle always wanted a 36 Hudson teraplane coupe , I guess I would get one of those to find out what it was he loved about them .

Favorite hot rod would be one very similar to the NSRA giveaway car last year.

I am not much on the newer stuff, but I have always like the Vipers.

This topic will let my feeble mind run wild for a few days. Maybe I'll have an interesting answer. Smile

I want one of everything Santa.

I'll have to think on it otherwise.

couple of the HellCat Dodge versions. Seems like it could be fun for a while.

Old car? Tough one to nail down just one. Cord would be interesting.

Or: Perhaps one of the olde cars Jay Leno has with an Aircraft Merlin engine for power

A Speed 33 with a hemi.
Still a little out of my price range!
I'll buy another lottery ticket.

#9: which cars Author: RochieLocation: London Ontario Canada PostPosted: Wed, Nov 15 2017, 5:41 pm
DEFINATELY a 40 ford coupe, deep black with red wheels and red interior. New...probably a Camero, not much of a vet fan!

My first pick would be a 57 or 59 Ford Retractable, new from the factory would be nice. I had a rust bucket 57 in HS, and wish I'd kept it. Don't know if my second pick will be newer or older...

Well, I'm not much of a dreamer, I rather just have the money.

But if I had to buy a new car to keep and not resell and not a new build turn key hot rod, I'd probably go for a Z06 Corvette.

As for an old car restored and again not a turn key hot rod, I'd go for a stock 32 Ford Tudor Sedan. A little something like this.

Old car: I would probably go for a '41 Willy's with a tricked out LS engine.
New car: an S-class Mercedes for taking long trips.

I'd want four cars in my garage:
--Brand new Mustang GT350
--1969/70 Mustang OR 1969 Cougar restomod/pro touring
--1967 Chevelle SS, also modified
--1933/34 Ford coupe

And maybe a pickup truck just to have a hauler.
