I have dozens of cars I would like to own and drive, who doesn't. I have always loved the front engine dragsters and I hope to someday run one. It would be a stretch from were I am now but my vette was also once only a far off dream. Here is a video of some cool dragsters. Enjoy.

My brother in law in Lawreceville Ga has a vintage rail that he runs every now and again. Runs on alcohol. He used to build and race Novas and his son tore up more than a few Camaro engines at the track and he's less than 20 y/o. I'll be happy the first time I put my own down the track.

I want one of these ....... The car would be nice too ....

Since I was a little kid I've wanted a '57 T-Bird and a '32 Ford Victoria (and any number of Vettes, of course).

I've also always liked 50's Oldsmobiles - a '50 coupe, or a 55-57 Starfire convertible. My dad had a '55 Olds Holiday coupe when I was born - first car I can remember.

I'd like to give a Carerra-4 a whirl, too.

Just need that winning lotto ticket.

I'd love to have another '72 Camaro. If I couldn't have that, I'd settle for a '69 Z/28.

Not much into exotics, but this thing would be a blast:

Without a doubt, a column shifted, 283, no post, 1957 Chevy Bel Air, with Fuel Injection.... Preferably Black with the red and black interior.

Closely followed by the New ZR1 in black...

That's it...

Be careful what you wish for. My first car was a '62 Chevy with a 3-on-the-tree. The linkage was worn - I had to drive home several miles stuck in reverse one night (talk about a sore neck!). After that I carried a hammer to whack the linkage when it misbehaved.

Though I wouldn't mind tracking down my old '70 Challenger RT/SE. The new ones are kind tempting.

but I really need a new two vehicle/winter ride.

Column Shift really intrigues me! At this point, with 55-57 Chevy prices the way they are my dream is going to remain, well, just that, a dream. Especially wishing for a fuel injected coupe.

I see myself in a Chevy Deluxe though, which will do.

I looked at one the other day. Sticker was almost $37000. I wish it was about 4/5ths of it's current size and about 1/2 the price.

Blade, I bought the Merc off a used car lot in Huntsville, Al. when I was stationed there for $450. Sold it two years later back home in Cicero Il. when I needed something more practical for $650. Makes me want to cry.
