I would love a Tesla Model S!

But I'd gladly accept an Aston Martin DB9!

I must have missed this thread somehow.
No one has time for my list of cars, so sticking with dream cars, I'm a big big fan of some movie cars. Eleanor Mustang from Gone in 60 Seconds, but my favourite, favourite is this. This is what I would put in my garage if I could only have one.
I'm with you on Eleanor - one of my favs too.

I am a total petrol head and have been fortunate enough to own a few nice ones.....not quite the list of @Projectblue but still nothing to complain about.

When I was 20 years old (1995) I bought a Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI (1990) for £2.5K with 68.000km in gun metal grey with black interior and red carpets. It weighed 930kg but had 130hp..... It was an incredible car for a 20 year old it went like shit of a shovel. I had that until 2000 when I bought a Fiat Cinquecento Sporting with red seat belts which I owned until 2002 and upgraded it to Fiat Punto HGT 1.8. I then got lucky with a few property deals in London and went a bit off the rails between age 27-32 with the below list
TVR Cerbera 4.5
Porsche 911 /996 (3.4)
TVR Tuscan 4.0
and a few motorbikes at the same time Honda CBR 1100R Blackbird, Suzuki Hayabusa GSXR1300r, Moto Guzzi Rosso Corso Le Mans V11, Triumph Daytona 955i. (photos to follow soon but they are not on my gaming computer so will need to transfer them across)

At the same time wifey and I blew a small house on travelling to 50 countries over 10 years..(1998-2008).....

As I always say....I started out in life with nothing and I still have most of it left.
My aunt had one 205, lasted until it rot, those cars have something that makes you feel a connection isn't?, hard suspension, no power steering, noisy and low, like a go-kart :) My current 106 is white with electric blue seats, stock configuration!

Those TVR are weird wheels!

Petrol, automatic, cruise control, air con, estate. The fewer electric gadgetry the better. Less to go wrong. I always said I'd never buy a car for the same money I could buy a house, even if I won millions. I stand by that. It's obscene.
Absolutely! But still, if you like sporty feel, you can get it with few cars out there for cheap:
Peugeot 106
Honda civic
80s and 90s toyotas (Supra, corolla, mr2)
Mazda Miata
90s Mustang (although, 90s were ugly AF)
Mitsubishi 3000GT
Some old BMW

Of course, they will not make you look like a rich man, the final point is to have fun driving them!

Also for your preference, I see you are the kind of man who sees the car as an accesory or a tool, which is fine still, my father got the Sandero Stepway last year, gas and petrol hybrid, only lacks of automatic gears, but I tried it and the manual is reaaaaally smooth, is a little tricilinder engine, 900cc, but it's turbo and gives around 90HP consuming the same as a lighter! Does not feel slow at all, and the price, giving his old car was around 9000€ new.

That's impressive.
I'd be quite likely to hurt myself or someone else if I were to have a really powerful car.
I sometimes think it might be nice to have a van for work and my own car too, but when I do I dream of a small 5 door which is economical and easy to park in small spaces!

I've got my eye on an Electric Fiesta for my next one, likely in a few years. Got an ST-Line Fiesta at the moment and it's everything I need in a car; fast enough, small enough, big enough, economical enough. I'll never go back to a car without a heated windscreen though; makes winter much easier.

AH! Now: heated windscreens are the future. That's gadgetry I can support. Not great if it breaks or you need a new screen, but still, bloody brilliant.

- Seats
- All necessary safety equipment
- Good speakers

Cold Blood out.

My mate imported a Nissan Skyline once; he wrote it off within a week, Said it was just too powerful. Mind you, he did stick nitro in a 5.2 dodge ram..
