Imagine that money were no object, in fact imagine that you're forced to blow a ton of cash on restoring any antique car of your own choosing... what would you choose?

Be specific

Not exactly antique persay, but I would love to get a run down '67 Mustang and spend a ridiculous amount of money and time in making it all sexy again.

My answer is easy for me!

A 1969 Shelby GT 500. If I ever win the lottery, I would be owning one of those within a VERY short amount of time.

Nice choice Lombozo... here in my office, we play the lotto every week, this weeks is up over 200 million, so my take after taxes would be just over 3 million, so if we hit it, there will be a nice shiny mustang sitting in your drive way. You won't have to do the work, just send me pics of you and the little guy washing and babying her.

My choice would be what my first car was.

1974 Pontiac Firebird. Blue with white leather interior. 5 spoke crager rims. I loved that car, I want another so bad, I can't stand it.

FYI, James Rockford in the Rockford files drove a 1974 firebird, for visual reference...

For me it would be a 1959 Ford Galaxy 500 Convertible.

First car I remember riding in, Paint it black with a white top.

Not as sexy as othe cars but I like it.

Wow I love the answers you guys are giving.

For me the choice would be a 1975 Chevy Camaro rally with the rear spoiler. And if I could add some customization I'd make it burgandy with gold racing stripes on the hood and trunk, mirror sunroof, outline white letters, automatic trans and a beefed up V-8...

Mmmmm MMMM!!!! That's my baby dream ride right there.

i'm with you on the nomad...

this is one of those questions where i can't just pick one.

i am thinking a hemi cuda...how could you have endless funds and not want to redo a hemi?
i'm thinking a gto judge, a pontiac tempest, and YES, a bmw isetta.

for the modern wrench in me, give me a buick gnx and a toyota supra please....that should set me up for a bit

...I would choose a black, 1958 Chevy Impala...


www.lowridermagazine.com...



I once had an opportunity to buy a black, 1962 T-Bird for only $800.00...

That was in 1977...

Far too many American cars in this thread for my liking. (we are more refined than you colonial types)



Behold the RS2000

You realize you just posted a picture of a FORD right?

Just realised which side the steering wheel is on! (I was tired)

Any way the Escort rocked the rally scene - and England only really has TVR as a biggish firm (and I don't think they are made here any more). There are a few smaller ones like Caterham.

How about a Morgan.



Wooden frames, so if that's shot it's gonna cost a bomb.
