My first car was a 1974 Ford Ranchero GT. I would get that exact car brand new as it rolled off the line.

Good choice Rancheros are cooler than el caminos

American cars of that era weren't all that well put together and didn't have the power that modern cars do but they sure did look good which is why I love the resto-mod trend.

The two 1974 cars I've had were as good or better than anything I've ever owned. I've never had anything older so can't speak to older cars. They probably were better.

Oh Lord, just one?

Well, my problem is I'm 6'4", so a lot of my faves I would no way, no how, fit into. Such as a 1973 Lancia Stratos.

That said, I think a 1970 Baldwin-Motion Chevelle 454 phase III would likely be #1.

Nice! :thumbsup: Not many people even know about them.

For muscle cars, would love a Yenko Camaro, Hemi Cuda, Olds 442 W30, the list goes on...

For exotics, Lambo Miura, Countach, and Centenario

If I had the money I would be like Leno with cars

If I could have any car that I wanted, I would have a '66 Hemi Cuda, solid black.

Fun thread! For me, a Jaguar XK140. Of course, I would also need a valet ("gentleman's personal gentleman"). "Oh, Jeeves, lay out my tweeds. I'll be taking the Jaguar out today." (And that's pronounced as the British "jag-you-are," not the vulgar American "jag-war.") :D
