..and then ignore them, like I do. That one's pretty nice though.
My all time favorite car that I would love to own is a Renault Turbo 2:

Just pure insanity. Take an econo box, the Renault 5, put the engine in backseat, a massive turbo on it and take it rally racing. I've driven one once for about 10 minutes and it was awesome.

Well, they did sell them here for many a decade. In fact, you beloved Jeep was part owned by Renault for awhile. The XJ was actually designed in France by Renault.



"beloved" Jeep is going a bit far (especially for an XJ)?

That's a "beloved" Ping Anser 4. I've had that almost as long as I've been married.

Another "beloved" item I have would be a Wilson A2000 from about 1983. Mine's not in quite this nice of shape. Has been relaced at least 5-6 times and the leather on the inside of the palm has worn out from use. Best $75 I think I've ever spent :D

Different strokes obviously. I'm sure it's an animal in it's own right but I'm just not into the "look" at all.

To me, this is a "tier 1" type car.

Again, different strokes. I'll take mine with a 428 CJ and a 4 speed. (I'll need a tire contract or arrangement with a local distributor)

I'd take that little hot hatch over the 'stang for sure. I mean they did so well with the XJ that it just makes sense that I'd like it.

I mean, if you like boring and generic (geriatric?), thats the car for you! :rofl:

When we both get our dream cars, we can have a race. Your white New Balances vs. my Piloti's.



After my last knee surgery (lateral release-11 years ago), you'd kill me in a foot race for sure. Haven't run since. Not at all a fan of that doc


I'm not even sure what my "dream car" is. There's about 20-30 in the top that my daughter calls a "tier 1" car. Maybe 100-200 more in a "tier 2" category. After that it kind of doesn't matter? At any given car show, I could find a dozen or so interesting cars for me. I definitely prefer American muscle/pony cars, mid-50s to early 20's cars to most other things.

This is where I am. If you pinned me down right now I'd probably say some flavor of early Camaro, but for a long time it was a 65 Mustang I wanted, and then it was a Corvette, and it'll probably be something else soon. I've got a massive soft spot for early 2000s Japanese sports touring cars. I'd give up a testicle for a chance to buy a Mark 4 Supra or RX7 at a decent price. Except I probably wouldn't fit...

Kevin I had a 88 FC RX7 and you probably would have fit those things were quite spacious. The guy that had the shop across the way from me had an FD and the interior was smaller.
I wished mine was white and had a turbo so I could make believe I was a drift racer speeding down a Touge against Takami.
But instead I was just melting junkyard tires at every stoplight with NA blue on blue on blue GXL that some ding dong before me had painted all the dash vents and interior plastic trim yellow.

My dream car is a brand new Lexus LS in silver with 35% tint all around.

Or one of those mini vans with the built in vacuum and a couple more kids to fill it.

Edit: I'm serious. I do want another kid but my wife says no. I saw one of those fancy vans at a float preview for the July 24 parade probably 5 years ago and it blew my mind. Plus, what's cooler than a vehicle that can carry a mess of people, can handle a full sheet of plywood, AND will fit in the garage without anything special? That's right, nothing.
