Nice list, Moderator Dude!

I'd add the Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren as another car I wouldn't sneeze at in your price no object but not ridiculous category.

As for the price absolutely no object category, I could "get by" with a McLaren P1 also..

In the real world, a candy apple red Corvette convertible would be sweet...

My first car was a 65 Ford Fairlane with a 289 HiPo. Have had many cars and a few bikes, but the ones of note were...

1970 Olds 442. - Found the body in a junkyard with no drive train. Found a Buick GS Stage 1 455 and rebuilt it. Car would pull high 11's in the quarter mile.

1983 1/2 Corvette. (first of the newer body style corvettes after the swoopy fender 70's style units. Had the Doug Nash 4+3 manual and crossfire fuel injection.

1985 Honda VFR-750-R (insanely quick 2.3 seconds 0-60)

What I am currently driving (Picked it up last week)




Dream car comes in two forms....

One I might be able to afford would be between two cars.

Mustang 2017 GT350
Camaro 2017 ZL1 - 1LE
I would look at the Z06 but something tells me it would not be as ingress/egress friendly as my body is getting...lol.

Money no object?
That's easy. Hennessey Venom GT.

Nice "wheels", past and present, Roman!

Pretty neat dream car list too!

Buick kept sneaking into the performance car picture in the 70's and 80's, not so much since. A Stage 1 Buick GS 455 engine in an Olds 442.... sounds wild and fun!

Thanks, Secretguy

Would love to see pic’s. The Hemi is another awesome engine. A classic, like small block Chevy, Ford 5.0.

Enjoy it!
