Ultimate Dream Garage: Let Freedom Ring Edition


Frisky Dingo

Recommended Posts

So, in celebration of that most American of holidays, I thought a Dream Garage thread was in order. And what other rule to base it on besides the V8?

Rules on this one are sweet and simple-

1) American brands only.

2) V8 engines only.

3) Maximum of 10 choices.

4) I will allow one concept/one-off selection.

5) I will allow one non-street legal/racecar selection.

6) At least one truck/SUV option.

7) Any era is fair game.

 

Have fun.
