[font="Calibri"]Rules for this thread are simple, and fall under two categories.

[/font][indent][font="Calibri"][b]What to bring up.[/b][/font]
[font="Calibri"][list][*][u]The car, or cars, that make you drool:[/u] Sport cars, muscle cars, old cars, concept cars, trucks, bikes, choppers, crotch rockets; if it has wheels and doesn't fly it's fair game. I want to know what you could stick in your garage that would let you wake up every morning, walk down to it and giggle because you own it.[*][u]Pictures of said car(s):[/u] Show off them chassis. Please, though, be conscious of fellow browsers and link to those delicious, pornographically-large pinups you find.[*][u]Discussion of various cars and/or tastes:[/u] You got an opinion about a make or model or year, lay it on us.

[font="Calibri"][list][*][u]Responsible selections:[/u] If your 'fantasy' could in any way be summarised by the phrase "This car is my dream car because it is a reliable, safe, economically-conscious, environmentally-friendly, financially-responsible vehicle and I really don't need anything else," then get the hell out. This is a thread about your fantasy, not your practicality.[*][u]The El Camino or the Pinto:[/u] I think this goes without saying. But in case some troll out there decided to pretend like he thought he was funny, I'll go ahead and say it.[/list][/font][/indent][font="Calibri"]

So let's kick this thing off.

And because we're in the realm of the utter make-believe right now, my first entry will be the Aston Martin [url="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z158/Allamorph/Misc/photos/DBSVolante.jpg"]DBS Volante[/url]. I first discovered the Aston Martin in some Bond-related thing or otherâ??probably a movie although I have a distinct recollection of something selectableâ??when they were still using the Vanquish as their flagship . . . um, car. So to speak. (Flagcar?) I rediscovered them at some point last fall, I believe, when I was rummaging around for high-brow car makes for a game of [color="#8b0000"]Raiha's[/color] that I'd joined, and although I did use it for the character at first, the more I looked at it the more I decided that I would very much like to own it. The only downside about it, I think, is that I can't shake the thought that it bears a slight and odd resemblance to the Chrysler Sebring, which is a touch depressing. However, it's still gorgeously sleek, and it's a freaking Aston Martin, so what are you going to do?

My other thought, and one which I have shared probably several times before, is pretty specific. It's an American muscle car, the [url="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z158/Allamorph/Misc/photos/70stingray.jpg"]1970 Corvette Stingray[/url]. (Well. To be honest, the year is actually more like 1968-1971. I was going to just up and say 1971 but the best photo which I could find and which was labeled properly said 1970 so whatever.) This car is, to me, the epitome of voluptuous body design. I actually saw it first in the (super-fun) Nintendo 64 game Vigilante 8, under the label of Manta for legal issues and humor (they renamed the Gremlin to Leprechaun), and thought it was a made-up body design until I saw one driving around one day. It is without exception and without fail the only car that can make me turn my head [i]and[/i] utter "...nnnh," as it drives by.

Hit me up.

My first favorite car was the Corvette, but I never really liked any of the older cars. I like the more recent shiny, sleek cars. But my favorite Corvette would have to be the [url="http://www.autos4fast.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Chevrolet-Corvette-Z06-4.jpg"]Z06[/url]. And I just saw a picture of the 2011/2012 Corvette and it is turning into a Lamborghini. ._.

And my second favorite car, the [url="http://supercartrends.com/Lamborghini-Murcielago-supercar.jpg"]Lamborghini Murcielago[/url], was introduced to me by Need for Speed: Most Wanted. That NfS game has a lot of nice cars. =D I even like the Dodge Viper and the Ford GT, even though I am not a Ford fan (Chevrolet fan all the way).

Some time in the future...I will get a Corvette... Don't know when, but I will get one. (Or a Lamborghini, but those are way more expensive)

I would like to have a [url="http://static.cargurus.com/images/site/2009/01/12/19/59/1988_ferrari_testarossa-pic-36301.jpeg"]Ferrari Testarossa[/url] even though it's hardly my style of vehicle.  I think a [url="http://www.supercars.dk/cars/hummer/wallpapers-hummer-h2.jpg"]Hummer[/url] would be more my style.  

If you want to know about my actual "Dream Machine" I'd like a customized job similar to this one:

[img]http://www.buckmasters.com/myspace/images/bus223.jpg[/img]


Mine would be jacked up like that but it'd have big smokestacks like a semi's and a pair of bull horns mounted on the hood.  Naturally there'd be a custom pain job to go along with it.  Flames on the hood and the words "The Short Bus" written across the side.   Edited by The Tentacle

This car is my dream car because it is a reliable, safe, economically-conscious, environmentally-friendly, financially-responsible vehicle and I really don't need anything else.

[font="Comic Sans MS"][url="http://www.whitehousemuseum.org/images/AF1/Air_Force_One_over_Mt._Rushmore.jpg"]This thing[/url].

In all seriousness, though. I am infatuated with Vespa scooters. I'm hoping it's not just from watching too much FLCL, but I'm a huge nerd and it seems like a nerdy thing to drive, so naturally I want one.

[size="1"]My favorite dream car has always been a Lamborghini Diablo. I love super cars, mmm, delicious. But I also like others. My boyfriend has introduced me to Top Gear, an amazing show, lol. There are others.

[url="http://www.autofiends.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/pagani_zonda_r_top_view-1.jpg"]Zhonda[/url]

My boyfriend's love is the Ferrari F430, while in Chicago we past a show room of some sort; with Ferrari's, Lamborghini's, and other equisite beauties. He saw the Ferrari F430 and proceeded to hump the glass.

[url="http://www.carinsurancecomparison.com/Images/Ford-Mustang.jpg"]Mustang's[/url] and [url="http://www.carinsurancecomparison.com/Images/Chevy-Camaro-Bumblebee.jpg"]Camaro's[/url] have pretty much always been my kind of car, but I must admit that I didn't start falling for the Camaro until I saw Bumblebee.

But at the moment my dream car is still and probably will always be until I get one, [url="http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0WTefcddwRNcGUAchyjzbkF/SIG=12jucpv3a/EXP=1292224669/**http%3a//farm4.static.flickr.com/3515/3457687337_0d181cb9a2_o.jpg"]67 Shelby GT 500[/url] aka Eleanor. Yep, Gone in 60 Seconds introduced me to my dream car. That's probably the only oldschool car I would actually get because I prefer the new shiny stuff.

Before the Camaro's and Mustangs my dream car was the Viper but I just don't like the look of it these days. If I go the import route the [url="http://cars.88000.org/wallpapers/70/Nissan_Skyline_GT-R_R34.jpg"]Skyline R34[/url] would be a top contender for my dream car as well.

I'm a fan of speed, power and muscle lol.

It's also good to see another Top Gear fan as well, although it's been hard for me to catch it since I don't know the times it suppose to come on. Edited by Magus

Ah, the Zonda. Easily one of the most exquisite to behold vehicles EVER.

That said, my dream car is old school muscle. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS (blue, with white rally stripes).

I don't know exactly what it is. I really could not tell you. But I love these cars.
