Oh for me its a Ford Starliner from 1961. Originally packing a 352 cube V8, I'd want one with something uprated like a 428 or 460.

I'm finding it somewhat scary that I actually remember that ad, because I was not in the US in the 50s - must have been shown on the BBC as an example of US television or something :)

I fell in love with the Plymouth Fury in the early 80's after watching the movie "Christine"
Wicki has a pretty good history on the make, Interesting to see a few of our old Valiants had similar designs.
Dad had a 77 Charger 318 and I always loved vals ever since.
I had a 1980 318 regal ex Victorian police Commissioners back in 86, That was a sweet car.
Had to fill the thing with fish oil though  ::s

Can't say I normally have much of an interest in horror movies but two things made me watch "Christine," it was based on one of the few Steven King novels that I've ever read and I've never seen a John Carpenter movie that I didn't like.  I did not regret it :)

Had a Charger very, very briefly back around 76, it was a company car of all things, incredibly unsophisticated but great fun :)
