    1966 Mustang Fastback 2+2 V289 was probably the coolest.
    My TR-7 was a piece of cr@p but fun to drive when it wasn't having mechanical/electrcial/ hydraudlic issues and I was a DINK
    Currently driving a '93 Taurus SHO (my stealth 4-door sedan)

    The common thread is that all of them were (are) manual transmission.

    I hear ya. I never learned to drive an automatic.
    The only two pedalers I've ever owned were bicycles.

    1983 VW GTi silver/red interior. 2.L overbore 16V swap, twin webers, fully balanced, lightened flywheel, quaiffe diff, brembos, bilstein coilovers, etc. etc. etc.

    props to the SLC owner. I've had VR cars, but only a G60 rado.

    1990 Chevy Celebrity station wagon. No hub-caps, 125,000 miles, oil leaks, 3.1 V6. This car was the scourge of many mailboxes during high school. It also saw offroading duty (both on a trail and in peoples front yards), as well as stuffing 10 buddies into the back to go to the drive in. Man, I miss that car. It was also an excellent rig for, um, "parking"

    I loved my '83 Monte Carlo. Ugly silver, had a 305 with a Quadrajunk. Bought it off a fellow soldier down in Texas. The guy told me that some chick thought her man was cheating on her and mistook the Monte as the other woman's car. That's supposedly why "*****" was keyed into the hood in 5 inch high letters. Don't know if it's true or not....

    Spray-painted it satin black with safety orange badges. Hehe. Only problem with that was trying to get into it at night. Had a hell of a time finding the keyhole-sometimes the car itself. Had a lot of fun in that car and did a lot of walkin', too. Finally got tired of trying to keep it running after my abuse and sold it for about a third of what I paid. Probably gonna look for an old(60's/70's) GM muscle car next as a project.
    I like pie!

    Worked for the Alfa dealer when I was in high school. Loved these cars. Had a '77 Spider Niki Lauda, red. Calloway twin turbos, roll bar which proved useful later, completely reworked the suspension, BBS three piece modulars. Sweet.

    BUT MY FAVORITE CAR....'89 BMW M6. Could cry every time I think about why I sold it. Absolutely timeless body style, Still today it's a great ride, if you can find one. Pristine, owned it for 10 years, still only had 36K miles on it. Sleeper it was. To this day, the best gearing I've ever felt in a transmission. And this car had eyes... I never felt so beautiful as when I drove it. I've yet to meet a man who can excite m

    e the way that this car did.


    Wanna drive my Cooper S?.....It's made by BMW....

    80 MGB, British racing blue, black top. 500 watt stero with twin 12" subwoofers, good chick picker upper back in the old days.
    63 Nova with a 350 added. Good fun until the 6 cylinder front end went out. Then had to decide to pay for wife's college or front clip. Uhh, guess who won.
    02 Harley Lowrider. coolest of them all.

    Mine was rewired in the driveway and had a hi-tech doorbell button wired under the dash
    to start it. The radio was just for blocking air from coming through the dash and toward
    the end of my ownership I could not find a replacement choke cable so I kept two balled up
    pieces of tin foil under the seat to stick in the air horns when I started it in the cold.
    A great way to impress someone with your chic little 4-N sportscar for sure...

    1971 AMC Hornet SC360.

    360, 4bbl, dual exhaust. Made only 784 of 'em.

    I threw a rod & trashed the motor. Being a poor college student, couldn't afford to replace it, so I sold the body & tranny to a collector for pretty good bucks & bought my first "good" bicycle.

    It all worked out in the end.

    I remember those, Nick........
    It was red/white & blue I think ?? With SC/rambler emblems on it.
    I think they were trying to counter the Shoe Salesman image of AMC Ramblers back
    then ??



    That was a neat car but a Gremlin or Pacer is the Holy Grail in for AMC peeps !!

    1965 Buick Wildact. A 5000lb coupe that was oh so cool. 401 big block that got 9mpg in the city and 11mpg on the highway. Man I miss that beast.

    Maybe you're thinking of the SC/Rambler-Hurst?



    This was what I had:



    Then there was the most cool Rebel Machine:



    Only to be outdone by the Gremlin & Pacer of course
