Your dream car?

Recommended Posts

I'd love a custom, fat-fendered, 1940's cross between a pontoon car, a submarine & a torpedo (design-wise). Something unique, or why else bother?

 

This is a bit too old in as far as the sheet metal goes, but I love the imposing size & primal 'mechanicalism' of it :

I do find myself focused on Nemo' car when I happen to see the movie. The ginger breading has potential in my book.
Overall tho, I hate it when the fenders are farther forward than the grille. And this one (along with the Cap't America movie car) with 6 wheels is a deal breaker- I would only build something like that with 4.

Below is a scale model, war-time variant of what was dubbed the Cadillac 'Interceptor', which was built as a full-size runner circa '46 (there's a youtube video of it in action). 

I would happily drive a similar, streamlined car like this one, perhaps change the nosecone rings to radial strakes and make that baby rotate when the car is in motion. :D

This Opera Coupe is actually available and very attainable, with fewer than 15k miles for $18,900.  It would be divine if it were black over silver.  To make it truly dreamy, slip the Tesla Model S P85D mechanicals underneath the skin and give it full autonomous drive.

Here are 3 auto's that I love. I have always liked the custom trucks that people built from cars or in the case of the GMC custom crew cab. :D

I like coupes. Not talking about 2-dr sedans (for EX, the 3/4-series 2-dr) or the erroneously dubbed '4-dr coupes', but true, close-coupled coupes. IE: 3-window cars.

Also have always gravitated toward the opposite of (really, mostly everything) of what's automotively popular; I prefer a short hood, long deck car. Not easy to find outside of the El Camino/Ranchero.

 

Love the proportions on this, the '52 Packard Macaulay Speedster :

Lovely car, I would agree that would rock :metal: to have one to drive. Love the simple yet distinct style of the body. :D

1991 GMC Syclone

*Fun fact: the Syclone I included above is not the well-known 1991 model year but is the stillborn 1992 model year offering that was cancelled last-minute.  Changes for the '92 Syclone included new rearview mirrors, blacked out GMC grille letters, and various two-toned color offerings outside of the black/matte black '91-only color choice.  GMC decided to focus only on the Typhoon for 1992 and used many of the same Sylcone body panels on the new-for-'92 Sonoma GT. GMC produced a unique brochure for 1992 featuring the Syclone, Typhoon, and Sonoma GT.  This is still one of my favorite brochures form the early '90s.

 

 

(Any) Chevrolet Corvette Z06

 

E39 BMW M5

 

1947/8 Chevrolet COE

 

Why 1947/48?  Any particular reason for those years?

1989 Cadillac Solitaire V-12 Sport Coupe Concept

 

This was a beauty that GM should have brought out as is.

I remember that Caddy!  I got a poster of it, one of those fancy hand-drawn types, from the '90 or '91 Philly Auto Show.  Had that sucker hanging in my bedroom for years.  While I really like the Solitaire, I was more in love with the Voyage (sedan) concept, which was the follow-up to the Solitaire and a preview of the upcoming Fleetwood Brougham for '93.

Loved that car also. These cars were so advanced it showed up the MB S line as an ugly POS that it was.

This is the Caddy concept I liked best back then, too!  It was so cool to see some of those design cues in the 1990s sedan!
