Which is your dream car that you would like to buy / always dreamt of buying and why? Much better if you’ve been able to fulfill your wish.

Automatic self driving car.

None. I have no wish to possess an expensive car.

flutherother's avatar

I don’t have a car and have no intentions of getting one.

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

Not expensive, but if I had garage space and money to waste, I’d like a VW Karmann Ghia.

I’m with @RedDeerGuy1 on this.

When I was a kid, I liked the Jaguar. Always thought they were cool looking.

My father and his friends used to rebuild old cars. My dad had a GTO when I was little. Later, a Barracuda. His friend had a 1960s Corvette. All great.

Then I became an adult and had to actually pay for a car, so my tastes became much more practical. Currently, I’m perfectly in love with my Hyundai Tucson.

You know, even if I was Frump rich, I don’t think I’d spend that much on a car. But I’ve always loved the look of the R8

One that flies or one I had the time and finances to restore or build from the ground up.

Hmm… I guess I like a red ferrari, not exactly sure which exact model. It’s funny because I like white colors better. I like the GTR but it doesn’t seem to suit me if I were rich.

This Bentley for pleasure, and this Land Rover (a little more tricked out with more horsepower, fog lamps, etc., gas cans and winches on front and back) for everything else.

This little darling would be my choice of a fun little zip around car. I like restored classics a lot.

I would customize my Nash in a two tone, tangerine & cream or maybe turquoise and cream. I like the choices @Espiritus_Corvus mentions as well.

Cost no object?

The 245 MPH, Center driving position, McLaren F1

That is if I could find an owner willing to sell.

Bear in mind that original production stopped in the mid ‘90’s

When it finally is available in the United States I will consider Honda’s 168 MPH Civic Type R

I’m in love with my Toyota Prius and wouldn’t swap it for anything else.

Bought myself a little Mini-Cooper roadster convertible this Spring. It wasn’t super expensive as it was used but I am delighted with it. Zippy and a joy to drive with the top down on a nice day.

SecondHandStoke's avatar

^Ohh.

Not the hand formed Mini Superleggera

janbb's avatar

@SecondHandStoke Nope – mine was made in a factory unfortunately.

^My dream to own and drive a car that was never on an assembly line will eventually come true.

I’m still keeping an eye out for an early model Honda NSX. Hand assembled body, hand assembled motor.

Prices are rising, but when the right example comes along…

I nearly had a handmade car back in the late ‘90’s, an ‘89 (E30) BMW M3, unfortunately the bank couldn’t understand the then low price of $8,500 for a nearly ten year old car.

Wish I had been able to get it. Quality examples are now going for up to $40K.

SecondHandStoke's avatar

Or perhaps I’ll join the millennials.

My dream car is the one I borrowed from a friend’s dad.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

There are many expensive cars I would entertain owning from Aston Martins, to F1 McLarens, however, I would settle on this. I would because I love they styling of Lamborghinis, and since it will be a head turner when I go to gas up (in this area at least) I can do Kingdom business when they ask me about the license plate which will say GGMTC. I assume most will think it a corporation or business, but I will tell them it stands for God Gave Me This Car, tell them He can give them one too and invite them to service. Have not obtained it yet, the Lord and I are still working on it, but I know it is coming.

@Hypocrisy_Central God gives out expensive cars if you do His work? Sign me up!

This song comes to mind.

^ God gives out expensive cars if you do His work? Sign me up!
Before some get it twisted (or deliberately twist it up), God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him, those who diligently seek Him becomes sons and daughters, and who doesn’t want their sons and daughters to have the best? And with so merciful, loving and just parent, what child would not want to do all they can to honor that parent? I will go out on a limb and not worry about falling that most here would not care if He gave them a fleet of Lamborghinis and a 100 streets of mansions to put it in, they feel whatever they have is good enough, even though they are always trying to get more and more. By the way, it is no secret, you can sign yourself up, all you have to do is be willing, no one is ever turned down, not like a job interview.

I’m very happy with the cars I already have, next on my “expensive” shopping list would be a helicopter because…helicopters are awesome

You forgot “Give until it hurts!” but otherwise, bravo.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

@Seek, Goddammit, I hate that pay-to-play, gimmee-gimmee southern evangelist bullshit. Squeezing money out of old ladies, the ignorant and desperate. I’m not even religious and I consider that the high-water mark of blasphemy. It is so far from the Jesus ethic that it makes me sick.

I wish to have 918 Spyder Manufactured by Porsche!
