None, cars are the worst investment you could possible be involved in right about now.

Yeah, all those dudes selling cars from 50 years ago for 10,000% of their original cost are so dumb.

So they can drive and enjoy them for 20 years, and then possibly make a profit, or at least make their money back?

I'm glad you agree, arguing with a moron is boring.

Oddly enough, I saw my dream truck (the KW K100 Aerodyne) with an 8v92t (twin stacks and intakes are a dead giveaway) the other day. Such an awesome truck.

No, I'm new here, but I do have experience, be it mechanical details about cars, trucks, buses, trains, etc.

Ask me anything about the above types of vehicles, and I'll tell you like I know. I just love buses, trucks, and trains, but I do have a soft spot for cars, etc.

BTW, I'm still 14.

I've been in plenty of big cars/trucks that were very cramped on the inside, and also many tiny cars that were super comfortable, so unless you sit in it/drive it, it can be close to impossible to tell sometimes.

Singer Vehicle Design
Run by the younger cousin of Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson, and ex vocalist and guitarist with Catherine Wheel, Rob Dickinson.
Basically it's an early model 911 with 993 RS-spec running gear, custom independent suspension, modern interiors and electronics and some race-inspired touches.

That would be the big air cooled 3.8 and with the real close ratio 6 speed, right? If so, I can dig that.

3.6 engine in the later 993, though I believe they can do stroker kits and all manner of other things.
Gearbox ratios vary, but one of their demo cars (either green or orange, can't remember which) has got the RS 6-speed.

Quite right, I'm confusing the 993 RS and the 996 GT3.

This is hard to narrow down to just 5 cars.
I like way too many cars to limit it but here goes.

Not sure if that Golf in the picture is for sure a GTI or not but I prefer the headlight configuration on that one.

Just love the styling of those five the most.

One thing I forgot to ask, do you know what kind of Fuchs reps it's running? Look big. Like 18-19's.

Edit - I guess they're only 17's. And made in-house?

QUOTE (Singer site)
The Singer 911 uses newly developed 17’’ forged aluminum three-piece wheels in the style of the iconic Fuchs wheels designed in the 1960’s.  These wheels are extremely strong and lightweight.

80s Eldorado Convertible,
Keeping a restored 1989 Firebird convertible
Lamborghini Countach (last model perhaps, or newer 80s gen ...the 5000 QV?)
Ferrari Testarossa (the Red Head!)
One of the classic Muscle cars, of the 60s, not sure which... Dodge Charger aka DUKES of Hazzard
There's so many good ones there, hard to say, or even a newer Lamborghini that's more refined, or a Porsche 959. I think a TipTronic trans would work for me, I much prefer automatics.

One person picked an early 1980s Olds Cutlass Supreme!! Good call, I owned two of them... My first two cars ever!

I also grew up a kid facinated with hot rods in the 1970s, before you all were born! The era of custom cars then had a lot to do with fabricated exteriors and interiors, not plastic cladding bolt ons, mind you... the real deal! And murals, lots of custom paint, for vans being popular for cruising as well. With the nice Opera Windows on sail panels! Love that

Anywho, the upshot is I think flame painted front ends are classy, if the person knows how the flames should look. Another custom job was Gold Leaf lettering, I used to build models back then and hoped to replicate things like the shiny machined aluminum (Firebird dashboards)

For movie cars, I'd like to own the last of the V8 Interceptors... the Fords IIRC, used in Mad Max, the 1979 film, and last blown up in 1982's ROAD WARRIOR

Those are some of my personal favorite sports cars from the 80's... especially the Red Head!! (I laughed lol.gif ) From the 60s to 80s or even 90s I mostly liked the American Muscle Cars, almost all of them! But a Porsche 911sc would sort it for sure...

That's right, that is one simple detail that makes the muscle cars TOUGH and "muscled": it's what they are made of. During that era, the Muscle cars were mostly built with metal from the rear to the front, including interiors... its fascinating! Really tough rides, they almost looked like they were armored or something!! lol.gif ... and that's why i love them so much.
