Cars I wish we got in North America:

Those cars would be perfect (except for the A3 probably ;)) as first cars for me to buy. Though some of them are rumoured to be coming to North America (like the A3, the micra and maybe some Renault products under Nissan badging *crosses fingers*)

As it stands, I'm hoping that this'll be my first car:

Red is my favourite colour too but when it comes to sports cars I'm a bit of a traditionalist. It has to be BRG - British Racing Green. :)

Willow, you've got a fetish for some crazy looking cars ;)

Let me guess, you drive a Caterham or a TVR? (if you don't then at least you dream of driving one of those?)
I'm surprised you posted the Zonda pic now, it seems so 'blah' compared to the rest of your collection ;)

Nice use of a starburst filter!

If it's classics you want (and let's face it, they don't make 'em like they used to), here's a few more of my faves:
Ford GT40
AC Cobra 427 SC
Ferrari (MkI) Dino

alexusjonesfan
Oct 12th, 2003, 11:55 PM
Well, if you're willing to put up the cash, I'm sure Ford will sell you one of the new GT40's :D

I don't know very much about classic cars but everyone I know seems to be crazy about these cars:

btw, anyone got picks of odd looking classics like the 2CV or that car that BMW made that had a door in the front? :lol:

Colin B
Oct 13th, 2003, 12:11 AM
Most AC Cobras you see around are actually replicas as only about 360 were built. Same (but fewer) goes for Ford GT40s. They had to build a certain number of road going production vehicles to satisfy regulations covering sports car racing. If it was designed and built purely as a one off racing car, it didn't qualify.
I'm not too sure about the 'Gull Wing' Merc though - hasn't really stood the test of time for me. :)

alexusjonesfan
Oct 13th, 2003, 12:35 AM
Here's the new GT40 (pics from Frankfurt)
not sure how much it goes for but I'm sure it'll cost you more than an arm and a leg ;)

Here are a whole bunch of the original GT40s at the start of the 1966 Le Mans 24 Hours.

If you can get it to show as a photo, you can see how the new one owes a lot to the appearance of the original. It was way ahead of it's time.
