    So my curiosity is getting the better of me. What is everyone's favorite vehicle? Now it can be something previously owned or currently own, not a wishlist of what you someday hope you own.... me first, it was a 1982 280zx turbo. Burnt bronze color, straight 6,5 speed manual and a true 2 seater didn't want the 2+2 version, geez this thing was the ultimate when i was younger, I'd take the t-tops out and cruise for hours. truthfully going nowhere but in my mind i was going everywhere

    If I could have any car just for a “joy rider” to take out on Friday nights it would have to be 69 chevelle in that nice Chevy blue from back in those days. 454 big block and keep an extra set of fresh rear tires in the garage :cool:

    truth be told I’d be happy to own any of those muscle cars from the 66-73 era. Chevelle, nova, challenger, mustang, el Camino.. I like them all!

    very nice that 280zx was my 3rd... and to this day wish i hadn't gotten rid of it, but being young i wasn't thinking about the future. I was constantly thinking what's cool now..... traded it for a Mitsubishi eclipse gst.... i still hang my head in shame

    My first car was a “muscle car”. It was a 73 Camaro. Problem was, it was the late 80s and it wasn’t a restored car, so it had rust holes you could throw a cat through! We bought it off my cuz for $350. Since late 90s, all I’ve owned are trucks. I get a biweekly email ad from a place in Venice, Florida I visited once called Ideal Classic Cars, talk about some sweet rides! They are all for sale but most out of my league. They do finance though! They have a website, y’all can check it out.

    Doesn't have to be a car.... fav. Vehicle, truck, boat, tractor, horse.... anything that gets you from A to B that was your favorite, or got the job done better than expected, OR got the job done with hilarious routines to get it going

    I had a jet black 72 chevelle ss 454. It was pretty much a mint convertible unit and it was fun to tool around in. I also had a 72 cutlass convertible 350 rocket that was super nice mint car. They were alot of fun to play around in but I much preferred being in my truck for anything else. Although I would have driven the cutlass across country anytime and it probably got better fuel mileage ( as long as you respected it) than most full size vehicles today.

    Ohhhh. In that case, it's easy. I had a '77 Ramcharger with a removable top that I loved.... Red, with white accents, white leather diamond pattern interior. Had a bench seat in the back, that I used a lot..... I loved that ride.
