Your Dream Garage- 5.0-Up N/A Edition

20 posts in this topic

So here is the counterpart to our 4.0-Up FI Dream Garage thread. As the title explains, we will use naturally aspirated engines of AT LEAST 5.0 liters of displacement this round. And yes, I know I skipped the 4.something class. That was intentional.

 

Rules-

 

1)These are your only cars.

 

2)Production only.

 

3)Maximum of 5 choices.

 

4)Any era and market is allowed.

 

5)Must have N/A engines with 5.0 displacement or greater.

 

 

Have fun.

Edit: Because I'm a stupid-ass. Production cars only! 

 

I really wasn't trying to target any particular car, as my E90 M3 CRT/GTS and 458 Italia Speciale are off limits, too. I was just trying group cars with a 'large' displacement engine together. The 4.1-4.9 cars are kinda 'tweeners.

Yeah, that 4.X really is tweener engine size. Dang.. I do love me some 458 Italia.

This one was tough.

I wanted to do modern cars more than classics.

 

Here goes.

 

My all time fave dream car.

1970 Oldsmobile 442

Trans Am. Which one?

I could do a 1973 455SD.

I decided to do LS1 4rth gen.  Either a 1998 30th anniversary  or 2002 Collector's Edition.

Firehawks are also cool.

Then I remembered this about a Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance.

So a 1992 5.7 liter V8 Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance shall be my choice.

6.0 V12 Aston Martin Vanquish Carbon Black Edition.

I love me that 6.2 liter AMG motor.

I have always loved me a CLS.

2007 M-B CLS 63 AMG to complete the garage.

So I think I have my list but I just feel like I'm leaving something awesome out.. 

 

2000 Cobra R - Probably never driver her.. just admire her rareness. 

70A1A530-F0AE-414A-BB9F-9A2628343372_zps

 

GT350/R - all out toy. Sundays, tracks, stop lights, interstates, you name it. It'll be abused.

644C3F17-9F70-49B9-8F13-6515645DD48E_zps

 

C63 sedan - 1 of 2 daily choices. Probably the more fun of the two.

'70 GTO - cruises, 'nuff said. 

CDD047C7-0C18-472E-A9A4-7E73452D6356_zps

That CLS is awesome. Thanx guys. I wish it really was mine. LOL!

 

You know Frisky, and to a lesser extant Mr. CCAP....(because I prefer the coupe)

Frisky, you keep on posting that C63 AMG Black Series, that Im beginning to dig it myself...

 

Thanx for introducing new ways (cars) I could get my car jollies from.

I like the coupe a little more myself but I would want a second car for daily capabilities... Had to be somewhat practical..lol. 

 

I will almost always try and throw in a C63 or E63 into these things. I just love the configurations(coupe/sedan/AWD(new E63)) available between the two and the C63 is actually more my size vehicle..and that AMG V8. I can't get enough of the noises it makes! 

 

I know I would want the Black Series if I got one in something like this but the reviews make it sound like you're riding on rails..both handling and suspension stiffness that I don't think I would necessarily want. I'd almost want it just because it is the top dog in the C lineup more than anything else.

The C63 Black is one of my all-time favorite cars. I just utterly adore the thing. Everything about it. A C63 of some sort is on my short list of attainable dream cars to have in the (relatively) near term.

I take that back, I did more research on the Broughham d'elegance. Usually I'd say a trim job on a ten year old car (at the time) is kinda nuts...

 

but then look at this interior. Lickable. Now why is it so hard for Cadillac and Lincoln dammit to make something like this again? MAKE BROUGHAM REAL AGAIN!!
