Cars You'd Like To Own...

To start, this is probably a "been there, done that" thread, but I really don't much care.

The question is simple: What car do you forsee or would like to see in your future, new or used. And what might come -- such as the up and coming Camaro -- does not count. It must already be setting on a car lot somewhere.

Here's what I'm seeing in or considering to make a part of my future (which more than likely translates to late summer or late fall).

1998 Chevrolet Camaro with about 70,000 to 90,000 miles for around $6,000 to $9,000, Black or Silver.

Or...

1966 Oldsmobile Toronado for $2,500 to $8,500, "High Toned Son of a Bitch", Black Only

Posted Image

And I won't rule out...

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle

Any F-Body

If it has to be sitting on the lots, then if I decide to get something other than the GTO, I'd probably want to have a used CTS-V or used 05-06 GTO.

If I could do the looking into the future thing, it would be the 2008 CTS. But more immediately, I may be trading in the Silverado soon for something smaller, and unfortunately the Colorado doesn't cut it, so it would be something non-GM.

I will be replacing the Regal because...well...it's time.

I have some personal things going on and don't want to fuss with a new car until about mid May 2007. I would order in March. That's only, 13.5 months from now...not out of line. Sure wouldn't want any major repairs in the interim, so I am babying it. Now, if there was both a discount AND a "kick-up" on the GM Card redemption, from my $ 2,235 to about $ 3,000, I would jump sooner, possibly keeping it in one of my Mom's garage "bays" up north. The car will be either a LaCrosse or a Grand Prix....the more I look around, the more I come back to these.

I do think about getting a mint condition, low mileage 1998 or 1999 Intrigue to putz around in as a second car but I doubt I will. I've found the multiple car thing to be more trouble than it's worth, but that's just me!

Any 1981-1988 G-body

Newer...

2001-2004ish Lincoln LS (whatever is below $8000)

Late 90s Cadillac Seville STS

Dude, whoever owned that Camaro last was retarded. Did you see those rims and the spoiler?! Blech.

Well, once my current fleet has been sold, all bets are off. Most likely, the next purchase will be a classic wagon(preferably a Chevelle). A classic El camino is always a possibilty, but who knows what might cross my path. A little later on, I am certain at least one zeta-based vehicle will find its way to my driveway.

96-01 Audi A4 quattro

00+ Deville DHS or DTS

01+Catera

98+ Grand Prix

98+ Intrigue

01+Impala LS

Right now the Intrigue is highest on the list due to cost/features for the dollar and with the 3800 they would be VERY reliable.

I'm thinking about a 91 LSC too. I had a 91 T-bird that I bought when it was two years old. That was a pretty good car. And I would like to get something that my wife can drive so I can give my Regal a break a few days a week. Shes too small to drive my 98. For a brand new car it going to be a Chrysler LX V8 car though.

For as long as i can remember, my dream car has been a 1969 El Camino. I want it to be all black with limo tint all around. Then i will promptly drop in a 454 with a big ol blower. I also want some american racing wheels wrapped in some fat rubber and the exhaust coming out the back (not the side like some caminos have).

I share your sentiment. This is a car I practically INHALE. However, if you go that route, check out the intake manifold issue ahead of time. That's what I was told by a GM service advisor within the last 2 months. I am sure it didn't affect or will affect every car, but there is a propensity. Good luck with this!

Had 2 Intrigues. Great cars.

My wife and I have been debating the next car. At this point the HHR is the front runner with hopes of a hotter 2008 Malibu as a second choice.

I'm sort of hooked on Aston Martins lately. Probably because I've been watching a lot of Top Gear.

Mmmm...DB9 or V8 Vantage. The sound of the Vantage is just.. :wub:

Cadillac CTS-V in the next decade the chances of me having one of these bad boys for a daily driver are about as high as the chances that Ted Kennedy will drink too much and grab some young girls a$$. In other words: very likely.

Although I'm going to sell my beloved 1968 Camaro so that I can afford a decent '59 Buick at some point in my life I MUST own a 1969 Camaro wiht a nice big-block V8 and 4-speed. It HAS to happen. :)
