2. A car for the hot summer
3. A car for a track day
4. A car to drive your kids to school
5. A car that shows you are green{ not a prius or tesla}

1. A RWD or 4WD of course, I will go for a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VI, after the EVO VI the EVO doesn't look like a rally car anymore :sad:

2. For the hot summer it will be a Rat Rod, not any specific make or bodytype required but a Coupé or a Tudor is a plus.

3. Lotus JP Special, would be pretty much awsome to try one of those :grin:

4. A nice family car would be a 40's woody:

5. I'm not really interested in such things, morden hybrids/whatever mostly looks like crap, therfor I will go for one of the forgotten electric cars, here a Detroit Electric:

6. Hopefully it will still be possible to drive one of these:

1. Anything with FWD, so why not my current dedicated winter car? It also happens to have Anti-lock brakes and traction control :smile:

1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

2. 1984 Dodge 600 ES Turbo.... duh. (I wish mine was black like this instead of stupid silver :ohwell: )

3. 1987 Buick GNX :bave:

4. 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.

It can carry 9 people in style and comfort... enough said.

5. 1977 Lincoln Town Car

"Green" is for hippies, I want an 8.0 liter engine

6. Buick Park Avenue

I cannot think of a better car to plow through a farmer's market full of people with.

You know, come to think of it, I already sort of have my "dream garage" since I actually own the first two cars already and have no need for any of the others. After all, I don't have kids, I don't go to "tracks", I despise the "green" movement, and I'm not an old fart drivng over pedestrians in a Buick :smile:
07/08/2009 @ 08:24:13: dragonboy3000: your fantasy garage

I'm trying very hard not to bend your catagories too much.

1) Lancia Delta S4 Stradale. Wait, Italians don't know how to make heaters. Damn. Okay, Dmitri Parfjenov T-98 Combat. Russians know how to make heaters!
2) Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV in neon green. I was going to make this #5.
3) LSIS (Lotus Seven inspired Sportscar) with a Nissan SR20DET. I could pick any number of race cars, but the reality is that I'd probably kill myself in a few laps.
4) This is the hardest one to follow; I don't have kids, and if I did, they could take the bus. Uh... Nissan Skyline GT-R 4 door (R33, Autech did the sedan.)
5) Lexus LS600h L: It may be a hybrid; but it's also an immense, absurd slab of technological whizzbangery. And that's something I can be smug about. Really, it's obvious I'm not green, I have seven cars.
6) Cadillac Brougham d'Elegance: I'm a cranky old man: my car weighs two tons and is made of cast iron, I can't see nothin' and I have the reaction time of a tectonic plate. Outta my damn way all you 2050s plasticmobiles.
7) Chevrolet Suburban: It's only 32,000 pounds, so I'll send it to these guys and not take it back until it's nicer then my house.

I see you added a seventh car; a chauffeur car costing over 45000 pounds? I don’t really get the point of a chauffeured car. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with it, its just not me. Obviously my tastes are not up to par. I would rather drive myself, connecting with the vehicle while under my control, the vehicle becoming an extension of you. Having someone drive you around takes the fun out of it.

Anyway Here is my chauffeured car (though I would be driving :grin: ) costing over 45000 pounds

2010 BMW 760 Li (F02)

Preferably with Driver Assistance Package, Rear Entertainment Package, Active Cruise Control, Luxury Seating Packages, Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection and Premium Sound Package.

Sometimes driving isn't fun. In fact my mom likes to say that if you're enjoying driving, you're probably doing something illegal.

Oh, I just remembered this thing exists, it's my new #5:
Koenigsegg CCXR. Runs on E85!
The secondary thought is that I could pick almost anything, and just put a bioDiesel engine in it, but this is better.
22/09/2009 @ 14:08:29: guyver: your fantasy garage
Kinda Random, but I'm sticking to your guidelines,

#2 Buick BlackHawk Concept
#3 Dome Zero-obsure supercar that never quite made it
#4 Anything, I don't care. A 1954 Ford 2dr. ranch wagon or a 1974-76 Trans Am. My dad was awesome.
#5 or #3 or #2 for that matter, hayabusa or gsxr powered smart-car
#6 Anything they will let me drive at that age.
#7 ironhide edition GMC Topkick

"215 days without answer"? How could this have slipped by me? Perhaps spending loads of time away from the forums and the internet? :aidantai:

Very interesting topic if I do say so. I see that people have really shared their imaginative interest for cars on any of the occasions. I'd like to share mine with a little motivation

Winter - Healey Silverstone
Nothing can be more exhilarating than preparing myself from head to toe with winter jackets, scarfs, mittens, long-underwear and snow goggles and blasting out into the wilderness and plowing across the frozen lake. Chances are that this little champ will freeze up whenever a heavy load comes down. The best I can do is prepare to tweak it for that circumstance.

Summer - 1950 Buick
For me, kicking up dust with it's gurgling engine and malevolent grille leading the way, this is perhaps the best car to take out on the back roads. What better way that the enormous Buick was chosen by police officers and hitmen to conquer the city streets. It's like I'm welcomed to stop preserving history and live it when I grip the wheel and lean on the gas. I'm literally opening up the sound of purring monstrosities and letting it eat its way into my blood vessels as it stretches the miles.

Race car - Lola
Wait, I'm a fan of Le Mans and THX 1138? Sure and I'd like to have a car like this. I tuck and strap myself into the cockpit of wonders and blast my way onto an empty highway where the only thing going through my head is the droning sound of both a choir and pipe organ. Or the bellowing sound of brass (depending on the occasion). Both the wind that comes fourth from these instruments and that whisks past the sleekness of this car occurs in perfect unison. At the proper time, the horizon is the only thing in focus as the road, trees and signs are reduced to blurry forms that smear past my face.

School - Eliica
If you have a good heart and attitude with kids, you might just make friends with the neighbors when you do the favor of car pooling. "DUDE! Like this guy is so cool! He drives me and Courtney in an EIGHT WHEELED CAR! And and and it has lots of room! We can all play hacky sack! It's testicle kicking awesome! HE'S FRIENDS WITH MY DAD! AAAAAHHHH!!!!!

Fuel Efficient - Moonbeam
This man had an epiphany for a 100 mpg car. He took a couple of Honda scooters and used the back of one to power what is now dubbed as the Moonbeam. What's more is that the process appears to be painstaking simple. Working out a creative practice like this is the type of carpal tunnel syndrome all pretentious computer wizards should be receiving.

75 and onward - 1932 Daimler

or Chrysler Concept 70X
Eh? Fuckin' A, I'm still alive and kickin'! I say "BAH!" to your fruit carts, mail boxes, garden gnomes and front doors! Let the police just try to catch me! I'm still a member of VaRaces! I've seen every car chase known to man!

Chauffeur - 1957 Cadillac Brougham
Basic. Just purely basic. Anything with a suicide door to the back seat is suggestive enough. At least I'm wide open for religious nuts attempting to get at my head.
01/05/2010 @ 19:05:25: Sandie: your fantasy garage
. Range Rover 2 door

2. TVR Griffith 500

... or maybe Bristol 401

3. Caterham CSR

4. Volvo XC90 V8

5. BMW 123d Coupe

6. Austin Maestro

7. If the Aston Martin Rapide had enough rear seat room for me I would say that but it doesn't so I'll say another Range Rover. This time the newest one with the proper full blooded 5litre V8.

Truth be told with a free reign over choice I'd make little or no concessions for kid carrying, old age or the environment and just buy as many luxury and sports cars as I could house. I also venture that if you asked me next week I'd select a totally different garage.
23/09/2011 @ 21:27:55: kudos: your fantasy garage
#1 - AMC Eagle 4WD Wagon.

#2 - 1971 Pontiac GTO ''The Judge'' convertible. :bogoss:

#3 - TVR of the 70s... any will do!

#4 - Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser!

#5 - I'll just ride on the Alexander Dennis Enviro 400H hybrid bus. :wink:

#6 - AMC Pacer D/L.

interesting idea ( even if its really hard to stick to one car per category...

snowy winter : an orange Subaru Crosstrek , with some park time in the summer so it can make new friends.. :grin:

hot summer : anything with T-Top or Targa roof would do the job

track car : Porsche 959 ( but don't expect any record time, its way too rare to risk damaging it for chopping a few tenth of seconds on a lap )

well.. i don't have kids.. lets say Ford Excursion . When you scream in a vehicle and the echo answers you back, there should be enough place for the kids...

( but not turning down a wagon, a ' SHO ' one would be nice )

green car :
what ? they said a green car, no ? :grin:
ok.. since the EV1 goes unplugged and Prius, as well as Tesla are forbidden, Fisker Karma
or BMW i8

car when i'm 75 yo ( has to be under 25K ) : i'll be 75 in 2052, something interesting might pop up in the next 30 years, the list criteria doesn't specify if it has to be a new car

chauffered car ( has to be over 75K ) : an hearse, but i'll be chauffered only once.. :grin:
ok.. Lexus LS 460 but just because i don't know what to choose, having someone who drives for me and open my door like i wasn't able to do it is just not my style..

other interesting one is this one but having 100 cars on the list is not a big deal, its stopping at 100 that makes it so hard to do :lol:
