I guess at some point I wouldn't mind owning a used FR-S or similar-generation Miata that was already trashed enough that I didn't mind gutting the interior to fit my head and shoulders in it.

Re: Your Bucket List Car

Just picked up one of mine. It's the car that started me down this car obsession: A Fiat Cinquecento. This one happens to be a 1969.

I've got to, as promised, ditch some other projects before I start playing with it. But it was me searching for an affordable one of these back in 1997 after moving to San Diego that led me to a 1970 Honda AN600 and then countless classic minis, then Lemons. Now I've got one.

Re: Your Bucket List Car

I've wanted a lotus 7 for a long long time. I got a ride in a catrham a while back and it just completely sealed the deal. I think the best way to go is the Birkin kit. Not as astronomical in price as caterham, and you won't piss off the purists if you mod it like would happen with a legit old Lotus. Someday, I will have to buy a kit and build one.


Other realistic cars, I would like another 944 someday. One without a ton of rust. I still kinda miss my 924S in a truly masochistic way. I'd really like to find a turbo variant. I also know there will come a day when my dad will want to sell his Elise, and I would love to be able to buy it off him.

Re: Your Bucket List Car

I will have my aircooled Guards Red 911 someday. SOMEDAY!

I'd also rather like a Trabant, too.

I just got back from working in Slovakia and Hungary for a couple of weeks. There are a surprising number of Trabants still running around over there. My co-workers didn't understand why I was pointing them out.

Re: Your Bucket List Car

there are 3 cars I must own in my life time:

An M3, really any of them, but if I had to pick it would be an e90 with the V8 and a six speed.

and I'm going to have to own a 911 one day. Probably water cooled, the earlier ones are getting ridiculous in price.

And a 'vette, at least a z51, preferably a GS.

Re: Your Bucket List Car

Just got my "bucket-list" car.  17 years ago I was planning on a new car purchase when I found out that I had a kiddo on the way.  Well my now 16 y.o. daughter has her drivers license and I can get that 2 seater I had my eye on many moons ago.  Picked up a 2000 M Coupe 2 months ago and can't stop smiling.

Re: Your Bucket List Car

Well I think I would like to drive Mazeratti for a while. Also I would definitely like to have in my garage one of these driveless cars not to be stressed in the morning and be able to drink beers more often smile.

Re: Your Bucket List Car

After driving a DB9 I was a little disappointed in the experience.  It looked and sounds amazing, but left me a little cold in the driving experience.  I then looked at another bucket list car and after a few months of lookingX I just put a deposit on this, pickup in about a week.

Nice. As good as the DB9 looks and sounds, you made a better choice.

Re: Your Bucket List Car

Well....I kinda have one of them, my 84 Monte Carlo Super Sport.

But its not done yet, I have a 400 SBC that I'm building to drop into it, should pair very nice with the overdrive trans, the holley EFI and so forth....but I'm building a new Lemons car so it has to wait.   Also I promised my boyfriend I would put bigger brakes on the car before I added even more power...so I don't kill myself yaknow.


The other car on the list is a Buick Grand National....because I love my G bodies and always have.
