You know, you can learn a lot about people by the car they wish they were driving, so let me ask you,

What is your "dream" car ?

Mine is a new Corvette a black car with those shinny rims.

BTW you can submit more then one car.

I don't care a whit about cars and would be happy with literally anything I could afford that ran well.

I guess that's probably revealing in its own way.

Doh!  I misread that...  You said car, not card...  I drove the Ferrari 458 (0-60mph 3.1sec) and McLaren MP4-12C (0-60mph 3.1sec).  Both were amazing cars.  I also got to drive the new Acura NSX (0-60mph 2.7sec), and man that thing is a performance beast!  I guess those are three that I really like.
But as Chris said, anything that runs and doesn't need much maintenance is good.  If money were no object, I'd choose one of these.

I had the pleasure of owning one of my dream vehicles.  I had a black Hummer for about 6 years.  LOVED that truck!  Was everything I was hoping for and more.  Sadly, it was totaled (NOT my fault) and finances today...well, yeah, you know.  (I'm not a big fan of foreign make vehicles but I do like the FJ Cruiser)

My other new dream list would be the New 'Vette, or a classic blacked out '68 SS.

My best friend got a Tesla and we took it out about a month ago on some back roads.  All I can say is...WOW!  Seriously, the first time he stepped on it, it threw the sunglasses back off the top of my head!!!!  Serious torque!  His was one of the pre-orders and is fully loaded.  0 to 60 in something like 3.5 seconds.  Was weird trusting it to drive by itself on the freeway, but I did it.

The technology is pretty amazing.  Very easy car to drive once I was behind the wheel for 5 minutes.  Takes a few minutes to get used to not using the brake pedal, but very cool vehicle.  I'd buy one if I could afford it.

If I thought about it, I might have another one in front but probably Aston Martin DB-5, introduced in 1963 when I was teething.

Other than that I've coveted a military Jeep of WW2 or Korean War vintage.

Well, I as a teenager I totaled my parents’ Mercedes-Benz Ponton.  And I once drove much too fast in a friend’s 1966 Mustang.  Also, I borrowed a BMW series 6 for two weeks.  But the best car I’ve ever ridden in (albeit as a passenger) was a Rolls Royce.

My own vehicles over the years have been much more practical.  VW Kombi, Ford Station Wagon, VW Scirocco, Toyota Yaris and Honda Fit.  

A very successful record producer friend of mine once had trouble deciding which Porsche to buy.  The standard price tag for the one he wanted was $90,000.  But the next step up was the same car, but with a different front grill and a thin factory custom stripe along the side.  That model cost $120,000.  My friend was torn because even though it was essentially the same car, the added frills on the more expensive one would have exhibited more status.  Lifestyles of the rich and famous, eh?

I don't know about Dream Car, but my favourite has always been a Mobo pedal car I had for Christmas one year when I was a nipper.

One hundred percent eco-friendly.

I was on a forum last night devoted to classic car collectors. One of the members started a thread which asked..."What is your favorite method for controlling a card to the top of the deck?!". WEIRD!!!

Tough choice, but I would go with either a 1969 Cadillac DeVille convertible...

or the 1965 Lincoln Continental convertible with suicide doors...

What was the consensus?

Or is the discussion still ongoing?

My feelings exactly. These days we need a bit more space in order to accommodate elderly relatives, but that's one of the few considerations.

My brother-in-law's choice of vehicle was always a modest family saloon. But he bought virtually every car magazine published and passed them on to me. Full of glossy photographs and reports from exhibitions and BHP info. I found them dull, but for a quiet life I never told him.

I just got a 2005 Toyota Camry Ativa...my ‘Silver Bullet’! Never owned a new car/never will. This one has the boot room to fit all my stuff I take to schools and church ... it comfortably fits a dismantled magic case/stand (aka. a Duane Laflin design he shared in his Palmo DVD; old school, but I love it) and a load of paraphernalia. Need something that has a history of reliability, and this model has that. Ever since ‘Back to the Future’ I dreamed of a Dolorian; but my Silver Bullet carries all my stuff in more than adequate adequate comfort. With its CD player and ‘cassette player converter’ for my iPod redeeming my travel time with music or audiobooks I love, I couldn't imagine a better drive. It’s my dream car

Can’t believe I totally forgot about my Jeeps!  A 1987 Cherokee, and a 1994 Wrangler (both of which I drove from about 2002 until 2008).

Two of my older sisters used to drive Bugs.  They miss them more than any other car they've ever owned.

I gotta go with the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. 717 horsepower. Not too much considering all of the fancy cars that have just as much HP.
