What Is Your All Time Favorite Car?

Fri Nov 02, 2001 2:15 pm

Please tell us!

Give us interior/exterior pics, specs, etc., and reasons why you consider this vehicle to be your favorite.

I'd appreciate if we don't go into a war critisizing other people for liking different things.  Smile

For me:

Chevrolet Astro/GMC Safari Van

Exterior


















Interior









Specs

Engine: Vortec 4.3 Liter V6
Horsepower: 200
Torque: 250 ft. lbs.
Fuel Capacity: 27 Gallons
Governed Top Speed (computer chip): 106 MPH
0-60MPH: 9.1 seconds according to MotorTrend Magazine
Brakes: Antilock brake system (ABS), 4-wheel
Towing Capacity: 5500 lbs


This is my favorite vehicle because it has proven to be so reliable, useful, and nice to drive in our family. It is meant for active familys (like mine) who need a tougher more versatile vehicle than a minivan. I know it may e weird for a person this age to like a van, but it's me. It's great for long drives that I take, and it's got plenty more power than I need. It drives smoothly and easily on the highway, and it's just a great vehicle.




----------------------------


Ok, thanks for reading this far, so what is your all time favorite vehicle?

I like either the Saturn with the trick door or the Subaru WRX. I also like the Mercedes with the Gull-wing doors.

1957 Thunderbird. With the supercharged 312cid Y-block and 3-speed manual plus overdrive. This was the last year for the two-seat 'bird, and a powerhouse for its day. And don't forget the novelty, a supercharged factory car in 1957! There still aren't many models available today. (Grand Prix, Bonneville, Century? all GM I'm afraid and of course, the now defunct T-bird Super Coupe of 89-95. Throw in the Mercedes Kompressor models, and that's about it.) I'd love to have one, but they're quite rare and expensive.

Its a very very difficult question for someone as passionate for cars as me......different cars have different places in my heart.....but if you ask me what is the most beautiful car in the world then i would say.....just like Aerorobnz said......
the Ferrari 360 Modena....believe me no picture does justice to this car. When you stand infront of this mesmerising car and look at its rocket like, yet subtle lines, then you will realise how beautiful it is.
If someone can teach me how to paste pictures in here i can show you some really nice pictures of the car.

The747man, haha i find it funny that your favorite car is an Aerostar i think it's awful. But actually my friend was driving one and its one of those cars I like just cuz I think it's weird looking. I don't know...whatever floats your boat, man.

Those cars are beautiful!  Big thumbs up
I almost bought a 1995 Impala SS. I like the column shift and electronic gauges that year. The 1996 only came with analog gauges and floor shift to give it a more sporty edge to it.

My favorite car of all time is the 1978 Mercury Grand Marquis. It was my first car and I just fell in love with it, it is a big car, with alot of power and it was "Ride Engineered"

+400 ci engine
+leather seats
+power everything
+quadraphonic 8-track player (ask Superfly if you don't know)


although that picture is not mine, that was my car excatly! It was luck that I found that pic on the net. I wish I still had it, it could take anything but a bad mechanic!

B767-400er dont you think it would be a good idea to tell everyone that the car you are talking about has a name too......McLaren F1. Its no doubt its one the most greatest supercars ever built.......I am wondering if you have ever seen one in real life?

Gotta love that HSV, or the basic Holden Commodore SS.

This is a difficult one, but for sheer engineering innovation, the accolade must go the the NSU Ro80. I own one - but it is presently stripped.

I have seen a McLaren F1 just the once, as there is only one in NZ...it is no doubt a remarkable car, however it is no longer the fastest road car, there are several that can lay claim to beating it...namely the Bugatti 16/4 Veyron & the Koenigsegg CC
Marara...I have seen several TE50s in the last few days...both in black & silver

On the subject of very fast cars, TVR have come out with the Cerbera Speed Twelve. It's a production model with 800bhp, weighs just over a ton, got a 0-60 of under 3 seconds and top speed of somewhere around 240 mph. Oh and by the way, no traction control and no ABS - extremely scary. A snip at £188,000.

Those of you who don't know TVR in the States might remember one of their other models the Tuscan in the film "Swordfish" with John Travolta.
