Yeah if restricted to one I'd have one heck of a problem, for about half a second as I debated practical versus wants :)

This one:

Drove one a couple of times, sheer magic :)

You'll all laugh but...

When I was 14 I used to ride my pushie passed Kevin James Holden Cannington every day on my way to school and see all the brand new Hj Monaro's on the forecourt and I remember thinking "One day one of those will be mine"

I'm now 54 and it really doesn't look likely !!

Not laughing at all but you'd be lucky to find one that wasn't a pile of ferric oxide :)

XB GT Coupe, and since we are hypothetical she would be rocking a 427 cammer, TKO and full tourer style coilover suspension... Thinking Eric Banas on steroids. Big boots big noise and lots of grip.
Bana the fucker crashed his.

I'm not much of a car aficionado, but a  Mini would be fun.

I actually did have one of those, so did most of my friends, great car but someone was asleep in the design team when they put the distributor on the front of the east-west engine - really great in the UK if you needed to ford a bit of water.

Had to very quickly mod my mother's one to prevent the inevitable engine extinguish when she turned up with a nice red one just like the pic :)

She was adamant it could NOT be a problem because some years before she had rally'd a Mini-Cooper and it could ford the Amazon - yes mother, the Cooper team were aware of the problem :)

Great driver my mother - just lock the bonnet :)
