The realistic cars you always wished you'd owned...

Inspired by da Carlos talking about an old Escort Cossie he wanted I started thinking about the cars, real cars not super dream cars, that I'd wished I'd owned and still would like to...

I'm not talking Lambo's and Ferrari's and the like - the really desirable but relatively ordinary cars you'd have loved to have owned and still could given enough cash and garage space.

In no particular order:

Triumph TR6 - Always loved the square looks.
Austin Healey 3000 - sex on wheels.
Escort RS2000 - how can you not?.
Triumph Dolomite Sprint - I dunno I always wanted one.
Mazda RX-7 - one day I'm gonna own me one of those wankels.
Mini Cooper S - no not one of the new ones you heathens, a proper one.
Corvette Stingray - say about '68 although a Dodge Charger has an appeal too.

I could go on but I dont want to name every car going! Come on, what old car would you like to own? (or have owned)

As a young kid, (4-6) I thought the absolute mutt's nuts was the
Sunbeam Rapier. Then I grew up.



Into a spotty adolescent, whereby I thought that the only car I ever wanted to own was a Lancia Beta Monte Carlo. (I still would like one of these unreliable rust buckets).

But for as long as I can remember, it has to be a 911 (any flavour, i'm not fussed).

Maybe before I'm 50?

As a young man it was Audi, Audi, Audi....

Now its Porsche - 911, although when I'm being more sensible I think I'd be happy with a Cayman.

Keep it up chaps, love the SD1 with the flags, for some reason I never wanted one but a Rover P3000 - different kettle of fish altogether!

The main ones:

1985 Toyota Corolla GT - AE86 last of the Corolla rear wheel drive and now a cult drift car

BMW E30 M3 Evo - 2.5liter 4 cyln - a timeless classic

I still hope to acquire both one day.
