PostSubject: Dream Cars   Mon Nov 17, 2008 7:12 pm

I was watching the Barrett-Jackson auctions again and got to drooling and thinking. Although guitars can be expensive, they are no where close to what classic cars go for. For example, my dream guitar would be an original 57 6120 gretsch. You could find an original for 10K ish or a new repro for 2.5K. Expensive to be sure, but possible.

When I see these classic cars going for 100s of thousands of dollars, I know it will never be obtainable, just a pipe dream. So it got me to wondering, what would be my all time dream/ money is no object car?

I have simple and predictable tastes I guess. I'd go for this as my daily driver:



and this for my weekender:



I guess I'm more of a resto/street guy than a custom guy.
So anyone else want to offer up their dream cars?

I saw one in a 4th of July parade when I was 11, royal blue. My dream car. Sad

You got great taste Cristo. Actually, all the cars show are fantastic looking things. I'd love to get my hands on a brand new Aston Martin DB9. In terms of old cars, I'm suddenly finding myself liking Hod Rods, but I'd loooooooooove a 57 Thunderbird, especially the supercharged F code:

I used to be a huge fan of this one when I was a kid:



A life-size replica of the "star" of a Norwegian animated movie from the mid-seventies. Kinda cool, huh? Smile

I have the gretsch mobile, I need to sell/trade it to pay bills! Dreams die hard..but some just gotta die so others may live! Smile
I am open to straight trades for gretsch guitars and blonde 63 bassman amps.

Those kicks (shoes) are, according to my girls, "hot". As an old geezer, I'm tellin' miss Twiglet to please not-butt buff my Bentley lest she wants one of my
associates, Vinnie or Guido, to assist her in learnin' to walk away in those high-fashion flops! Evil or Very Mad
