1968 Ford Mustang with a 289, center console was the only real upgrade on the thing. I bought it used and was just earning enough to get some real work done on it when a little old lady ran double stop signs and put an '82 buick skylark station wagon 8" into the passenger side of it. She did so much damage that a friend of mine wouldn't let me out of the car after the accident for fear I'd kill her. By the way, it was Poppy Red (faded to a bright hunter/pumpkin orange) and she claimed to have not seen me coming. I showed the judge the color (from a paint chip) and he found her guilty.

Warning: The following is a car guy rant!

I must protest! Toyota does not love cars or driving (as far as the Camry goes). You can't hear the road, feel the road, stay awake while "driving" the Camry! No performance, little in the way of handling and this last year a total lack of external styling. Don't get me wrong, it's economical, it's well built, it's probably a lot safer than a lot of others, but a car it is not! Put it in the "transportation" category

The Standard Flying 9 coupe that my dad bought in 1957. A great car with proper running boards. We went down from Newcastle to Cornwall in it and the top hose split going over Bodmin moor but we fixed it by tying all our socks round the hose and refilling the radiator from roadside streams till we reached a garage where it could be fixed. He sold it for £4 in 1960. what a car!

Ann and I went over to our son's house for a visit this morning .... There was a friend of there's who happened to be visiting as well ... Anyway, when introduced to their friend I asked "is that you piece of junk in the driveway, referring to a 1991 Taurus, in the most pathetic state of being, a complete junker. He replied yes, and admitted to being in the market for a replacement. I then advised him he should seriously think about getting a Subaru. At that point, my son, his wife and friend broke out in a roar of laughter. Apparently they had warned their friend that upon meeting me, somewhere along the line in conversation I would bring up the subject of Subarus.

I don't much like cars - but I gotta have one, so my favs would have to be the dependable - which would be a toss up between my very first car, a '69 VW beetle and a '73 plymouth Duster that I drove until 1986.

I liked my sister's first car awfully well - a '62 Volvo - And Dad got us girls a '63 Valiant station wagon (with a push button automatic transmission) that we ran the wheels off of and was just as dependable as a car gets.

One could say I lack a sense of style, I suppose....

I have had several favorite cars over the years.

My first was a 61 Impala 3 speed overdrive coupe, the first car I ever owned. It was great until I didn't stop when the guy in front of me did.

The next was my '65 Saab Monte Carlo which I rebuilt to a 1.5 litre tweaked to rallye specs after the 2 stroker died for the third time.
The speed topped out at more than 150 the one time I opened it up all the way. I ran out of speedometer before I ran out of the power curve.

Favorite of all time was the Citroen D type. It was a wonderful GT car, capable of cruising all day at 90 MPH and giving 25 mpg on regular with 5 bods on board. How many full sized vehicles can do that now?

My current favorites are my 96 Villager and Lady Hillary's 91 MR 2. My only problem with the MR2 is the noise level. Even the custom exhaust on the Saab, it was quieter than the 2. The van is ultrareliable, handles very well and is a real prime hauler. I use it to carry boats on top and tow as needed. It does it all without a complaint and asks for more.

Right now, we are contemplating renovating [not restoring] Lady Hillary's 71 Celica 5 speed fastback and putting it back on the road. It was her first car and was taken off the road a couple of years ago after failing inspection. The body needs a lot of work but the engine is ready now. Since she cannot seem to get up the nerve to get rid of it, it might as well go back on the road.

Re. Bentley Speed Six "soup pot" - that is the supercharger. Basically, an engine-driven pump to force more fuel and air into the carburettors and increase power. Power increase is basically linear with engine revs, which can be interesting when you change gear.

A similar system to the turbocharger, which uses exhaust gas pressure to drive the pump. Robs less power from the drivetrain (insignificant anyway) but power increase is dependent on exhaust gas pressure, hence the "turbo lag" while the pressure builds up before all hell breaks loose. Modern turbos are better than my dad's old Saab 99 black one.

1949 Ford Custom. My first, when my dad got too sick to drive any more. It had a flat-head V-8 engine and things were so simple then that you could do major overhaul stuff yourself. What little functional knowledge I have of automobile engines, I got from that.
Of course it put on a certain side of the American Civil War--which is NOT Union/Confederacy, but Ford/Chevrolet. I still have a Ford and my auto mechanic is a Chevy guy, so I know FORD = Fix or Repair Daily or Found on Road Dead. Backwards, DROF = Driver Returned On Foot. But I can live with it.

A 1965 VW microbus with a rebuilt 1600 engine, my all time favorite. Drove it all over Europe from Gibraltar to North Cape. It always started no matter how cold it was, would go anywhere, used almost no gas and never complained. Of course the windshield defroster gave up at about minus 0.5 Celsius, trying keep the windshield clear in muddy spring weather would turn your left thumb into a quivering swollen mass from the manual pumping and if I flashed the high beams with the windshield wipers going and the radio on it would blow a fuse (never did figure that one out, might have been some kind of subtle sabotage at the factory to commemorate 20 years since VE Day). Tried to see how fast it would go on a long downhill slope on the Autobahn. At about 110 kph with a heavy side wind I suddenly changed lanes without turning the wheel. Never did find out how fast it really would go!

In the world of my dreams it would have to be a Bentley Speed Six. But being a modest man, I'd settle for an MG-TC.

Finally (in December) ditched the old ('93) Plymouth Voyager mini-van and got a brand-spanking-new Toyota Rav4. So far so good. Safe, nimble, snow-worthy, packs a lot of gear, and best of all it has relieved the fear-of-going-places syndrome brought on by the old horse and buggy.

At the moment, it's my favourite. Sorry dear old Volvo, wherever you are!

Hmm, since this is back again - of the cars I owned, maybe the C series Fiat 124 sport coupe. A lovely crisp twin-cam crackle and good for over 120. On an "N" plate so that made her 1975 I think. A much less twitchy drive than the 124 Special T that I transplanted a 1608 coupe engine into.

Or maybe one of my current 3 7 series Volvos. I have a twin-cam (1990), a turbo (1988) and a V6 (1986). All estates. Huge by UK standards. All good for over 120 and the twin-cam is the one I have had closest to flat out and she was doing 130 and still gaining slowly on a dark wet night, I could see the bend coming up and I know that that bend is not good at over 100 in the wet, so my nerve gave out.

Some cold dry morning we will see...

No cameras on that stretch of road.

Yet.

Later this year I will take her to the redblock guru to have a turbo added and then she will be a bit special. Maybe as much as 300 rwhp. To get some idea search for volvo turbo on youtube. She might be nearly that fast.

My fifth car that I ever bought was my first NEW car. It was in 1962 (possibly early '63), I fell in love with and bought a spanking new Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk. To this day I think that was the prettiest car ever put on the highway.

A few months after I bought it I had to go "on the road" to southern Indiana, and I knew of just the stretch of highway I wanted, way out in the boondocks. It was fairly long, flat, and straight, and very little traffic, with an excellent surface. "Aha," sez I to meself, sez I, "Now I'll find out how fast it will go!"

When I came to that stretch, I worked up the speed...95.. faster...100.. faster...105.. faster...

I never found out how fast the car would go. However, I did find out just how fast _I_ would go. At about 107 mph, still accelerating, I lost my nerve and gradually took my foot off, because I was getting a feeling of "float", "motorboating", that I wasn't really quite in contact with the pavement. That was enough. I don't think I ever drove that car over 75 or 80 again. I'd been given an answer to a question I hadn't thought of asking.

My favorite car ever is a red 1999 Honda Civic EX two-door with a moon roof. It was the only time I bought exactly the car I wanted, and it served me well for 120,000 miles. I got a very good deal on a 2006 four-door Civic two weeks ago and I like it very much, but it isn't RED and the four doors make it look just a bit doughty. It's a very nice car, but it isn't my red car.
I gave the red car to my 18-yr-old stepson. My previous two cars were in perfect condition when they ended up in the hands of teenages, and neither one lasted very long.

Ferrari 250GTO - Nick Mason of Pink Floyd has one. With the registration plate 250 GTO.          Oh.......My.......Gawd.

And what about the Pontiac GTO? 7 litres in a compact wasn't it? I will never forget at the age of 18 reading an early edition of Car magazine where (I think) Doug Blain did a comparison test between Henry Manney III's Ferrari 250GTO and a Pontiac GTO.

Doug was Australian and possibly certifiable. He could not understand what all the fuss was about the Pontiac....until he put the throttle pedal down more than half way. A banshee howl emitted from the hood, smoke from the rear tyres and it took him about a mile to get the thing pointing in the right direction again.

From such wonders did Ralph Nader and Volvo deliver us.

I liked my Eclipse because it accelerated REALLY fast, cornered great and had all wheel drive. It got to the point where it cost around $500-$700 every time I had it in the shop, and it was in the shop 2 or 3 times a year. It also ate PREMIUM gasoline at about 23 MPG. I have a Saturn now, which is an OK hoopdie, but I guess all I need is transportation.

My all time favorite car was a 1976 Honda Civic CVCC. It was a 5-speed with wood grain shift knob, steering wheel and dashboard bits. It got over 50 MPG. The car went from California to Texas, and Texas to New York, and to Illinois. I sold it before I went to England, and about a week later got a call from someone who said they'd passed it on the side of the road, burning fiercely. I felt bad for the people I sold it to, but I felt worse for that poor car I'd loved, that had been part of many wonderful memories, from tooling around Austin streets at night to watching the dry summer miles wind away serenaded by the road rocking away under my wheels... and 'Sultans of Swing' on the radio. Poor dead car...

Favourite owned. Hmm. Being a bit sad, I'm actually very attached to our Citroen Berlingo. Reliable, comfortable, extremely well-designed, great fuel economy, and it'll take a full PA system in the back no problems at all.

Without a doubt, the favourite car I ever owned was an orange VW Beetle. I owned it in the 1980s, but it was 1970s built - can't remember what year. Part of the registration was HUC, and I called it "Little Mrs. Eileen Huckbody", for no real good reason.

The heater didn't work, and in the winter I had to scrape the ice and frost off the *inside* of the windscreen, as well as the outside, sometimes several times during a journey if it was cold enough. All part of the charm of the car. Sadly, rust got the better of it and it would have cost me far more than I could afford to have it repaired to get through the MOT, so we had to part company, and I part-exchanged it for a bright blue Yugo (remember them ?) which was another jolly little car, but never quite the same.

For the past several years I have been driving Daewoo Matiz - now Chevrolet - on my third one now - and like them very much. In some ways, they remind me of dear old Eileen.

Had 7 Vettes, a 68 Shelby, a beatup E-type, a Lotus Elan+2S/130 and a piece of crap Europa as well, a 67 442, a 70 Goat, and a slew of interesting everyday drivers from junk to good fun.....and a few pickups and vans as well. Which one do I want back? All of them.......

But to pick one?

71 LT1 roadster, yellow.........This car was my garage queen of sorts. She only went out occasionally outside of going to SoloII events and Hillclimbs.   Engine was balanced and blueprinted, 202 angle plug heads, Offy roller cam with roller lifters, Jahns 12.5:1 pistons and Carrilla stainless rods, custom 1 3/4" tube headers exiting out the side, Edelbrock Equitube aluminum manifold with 700 cfm DP Holley, Mallory Dual Point (later replaced with an Echlin Electronic conversion). Borg and Beck Clutch tied to an M22 Muncie rockcrusher shifted by Hurst, and a 3.98 rear gear. Frame was all-seam welded, triangulated and gusseted, F41 suspension with the rubber bushings replaced with nylon/composite, polished Moog linkage, Adco sway bars, 1 1/4" front and 7/8" rear, Koni shocks, American Racing wheels with BFG T/A's shaved to half tread depth. The interior was black and the driver's seat was replaced with a Recaro.

Lots of other neat touches to the setup as well and some other fun parts but that was it in a nutshell. At the SoloII's it was a Porsche killer and that was the whole point. I have friends who'll verify this car could take a freeway offramp loop at over 75 mph like it was glued to the road. I sold it in '79 for $17,000 which was a lot more than a new one at the time.

I was young and healthy, made a lot of money, and spent it all as fast as I could......and I loved every minute of it. Now we struggle through like everyone else and I have paid for all my youth.............But I'd give my ass in hell for just one more Vette.

My dream car and one I have driven ....once....was a Lamborghini Espada.....a superb but now very dated four seater sports saloon.
Very sleek and very very fast even by todays standards but in 1972 when I drove it.......well...need I say more?

My first car was a Willys station wagon from the 50's that someone had swapped in a Ford V8 engine. The sucker was all windup, even in top gear, could climb brick walls, and as for virginity, well, it had plenty of lying about space int he back.

But I think my favorite of all time is going to be a V6 RAV4 Ltd I am about to purchase, I hope. Fully loaded, all mod cons, plenty of power, good gas mileage, relatively, and comfortable as a bug in a rug.

Volvo 122S - had two of them, a 1965 and 1966 - great, solid cars - I rolled one 360° and walked away without a scratch - unfortunately the car didn't fare as well but the motor went into a friend's car and lived on.

Austin 1800. But not for towing. Too short between back wheels and towball.

My grandpa's 1952 Studebaker Land Cruiser. Big, comfortable, and absolutely futuristic-looking for its time.

My dream car is a '68 cherry red Mustang...I asked for one for my 8th birthday but I'm still waiting.

I also love my current car...'02 VW Passat. That thing has BALLS, baby.

My first car was an '82 LeBaron...shit brown with tan interior. Can you say Nana??
