If you could choose any automobile in the world to own (some one else will pay for it) what would you choose?

Asked by Sunny2 (18718 points ) December 4th, 2011

As asked. You can have it made to order if you wish.

Lotus Evora – a blue one.

BMW 5 series. I think the 7’s are not so attractive.

KateTheGreat's avatar

A old Thunderbird, particularly from the 50’s.

HungryGuy's avatar

Oooh! An old T-bird! Excellent choice! I’d paint it olive green, put a yellow stripe on it with a spoiler that looks like a row of square jet engines, and a big yellow “2” on the sides.

Thunderbirds are GO!

I’ve actually never gotten excited over a car. Unless you count the times that mine was broken and then repaired, and I thought “yay, I can get from point A to point B again!” I never see a car and think “I really want that.”
I only drive Chevrolet, so, something Chevy. And not sporty. Something with 4 doors and an uninteresting color and decent fuel efficiency.

Sunny2's avatar

@flutherother Good choice! I like red.

I don’t know why but since I saw this in a car museum I have loved the idea of a dark green convertible with camel leather interior. This Aston-Martin is a nice example. I had no idea it was the car Tippi Hedren tried to escape with in the Hitchcock movie The Birds!

@ANef_is_Enuf – Why does nobody ever want to go from point B to point A? What’s so horrible at point A?

Sunny2's avatar

@HungryGuy You can’t go home again?

Just for the hell of it I’d take a Bugatti Veyron and when the time came, which it no doubt would, I’d sell it and get a Ferrari (599, 458, or more likely the upcoming F620 -or whatever they’ll call it – not sure which), fully customized of course, with the proceeds (and probably pay off my mortgage as well).

What I really want is a giant RV to travel around the country.

DominicX's avatar

I’m not a car fanatic and I don’t know a lot about them but I do know that the Audi A8 is an amazing car. My dad has one and the few times he’s let me drive it…so awesome…

I would love to have that car:

@HungryGuy I don’t know, but whatever it is, I suspect you’ll like it.
@jaytkay I said “uninteresting color” not “ugly.” ;)

Aster's avatar

@YARNLADY, we had a 32 foot one. I can tell you all about RV travel. You have to have a person who “knows how” to vacation and he doesn’t have a clue. He never seemed to enjoy it and I usually got food poisoning so we sold it.

Blackberry's avatar

The Nissan GT-R, formerly known as the Skyline!

Edit: Here is a picture you can pleasure yourself with.

bkcunningham's avatar

You and my husband, @YARNLADY. I’d actually take a new Cadillac Escalade.

TexasDude's avatar

A 1955 or ‘57 Chevy Bel Air in seafoam green or black. Maybe a convertible with updated safety features and sound system designed to look retro or disguised as original.

OR

A Deuce and a half.

OR

An older Jeep Rubicon with a lift, a winch, off road tires, a lightbar, an engine snorkel, etc…

Aster's avatar

@bkcunningham my 2nd choice. My daughter drives a beige one.

judochop's avatar

This ride, just as it is, not a copy of this car but this exact car.
I’ve seen it, touched it, heard it, felt it.
She speaks to me in dreams.

perspicacious's avatar

A brand new replica of the one I’m now driving. It is no longer made. It would have to be special ordered and made; I don’t know if there is enough money to make that happen but if I had to bet I would say there is.

Coloma's avatar

A classic restored Metropolitan, painted 2 tone Tangerine and creme, a classic Jaguar, or a 55 T-Bird.
I have a newer car and I think most newer cars are so vanilla and lack character.
I like old model classic cars with personality.
But…I’d rather have a top dollar horse, a Cleveland Bay, Fresian or Andulusian.

zensky's avatar

If I see one more lazy ass question – with details that say as asked I’m going to shut down the place for remodeling.

A Bentley.

Symbeline's avatar

A Porsche Turbo, or a packard hearse. One of those old ones like they show here.

jonsblond's avatar

I was spoiled when I got to drive the F350 dually my husband used when he worked as a ranch hand. I loved that truck!

I’m like @ANef_is_Enuf, though. I’ll take anything reliable. I’ve never owned a car that was made in this century. Still driving a 1996 piece of crap.

jerv's avatar

Skyline R34 Nür edition.

@jonsblond My newest cars were from 1994, and my current one is an ‘85. Reliable as hell and easier to fix though…

Countrybumkin's avatar

A red Ford f250 or GMC pick up

jaytkay's avatar

A 1955 or ‘57 Chevy Bel Air

My grandmother had a 58 Bel Air (different car, I know) when she died. I think it had 40,000 miles on it. I was about 14 years old. My dad sold it to some guy for peanuts.

A couple of years later I realized what happened and cried, “NOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

@zensky
What question could you ask in Fluther that is boring to you but exciting for other jellies?
Asked by mazingerz88
Just proving a point to myself and following up on a threat.

TexasDude's avatar

@jaytkay I would have been upset too. I’d be more than happy with a 58. I just prefer the body stylings of the 55 and 57.

1. Aston Martin DB9
2. Ford Falcon GTHO Phase 3
3. Audi RS4
4. Chrysler Valiant Charger E49

The Tesla Model S. It’s “electric from the ground up”.

jerv's avatar

@Brian1946 Sadly, not on the road yet (except for prototypes). I’ve been watching and waiting, but it is still effectively a concept car. Not so with the White Zombie, an actual street-legal car that has been on the road since 1994.

John Wayland is a nice guy too; a little hyper, but very friendly.

Lamborghini Countach

Can’t beat a Landrover!

Unimog (they will pick up the gas too right?)

@Countrybumkin You can’t have my 20 year old Red Silverado 2500!
