Car's to own Bucket List

Postby Zack » Wed Nov 27, 2013 8:09 pm

If you could pick say, up to 10 to 15 cars you would love to own within your lifetime, or all at once, what would they be? Post them here. I know I have my picks of dream cars, not necessarily exotic ones, but one's I think would be fun to drive.

I used to plot out the 10 cars I would have in my 10-car garage when I "grew up". Instead of one $100,000 dream car, it would be a bunch of $5,000-$20,000 cars that I've always admired or appreciated.

It has been a while since I've thought about that list, since I already have an '11 R56 S and a Mazdaspeed Miata, and have owned a lot of fun cars in my life ('02 WRX wagon, '92 Talon TSi AWD, '67 Delta 88 convertible, '87 CRX Si, '86 Prelude Si, '84 300ZX 50AE...).

So, I don't have a current list, but things that interest me that I think I might like to own some day....classic Mini, Volvo P1800S, GMC Typhoon or Syclone, Mustang SVO, MGB...just off the top of my head...

Since I can never decide my list is 15 cars long

1. My Mini Cooper S of course
2. 2013 JCW or Mini Cooper with the JCW package and Recaro seats
3. 2013 JCW Coupe
4. 2013 BMW M3 Sedan (everyone does the coupe. The sedans look more aggressive)
5. 2012 BMW 1M
6. 2013 Ford Focus ST
7. 2013 Ford Shelby GT500
8. 2013 Volkswagen GLI Autobahn
9. 2013 Audi S4
10. 2012 Ford SVT Raptor Extended Cab
11. Dodge Ram SRT-10 regular cab
12. Scion FR-S
13. 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX STI hatchback
14. 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR
15. I'm thinking Lexus IS-F

My list could go on forever though. That would be a big garage.

Wow Seth. Way to stereotype me. I'm not an idiot. I wouldn't put a fart can muffler on that and I'm not from Colorado. Those drivers do suck. I agree.

LOL

You asked why and now you know :)

BTW - I don't think you are an idiot. I know you are not from Colorado. I do think you would put a fart can on your STI (JK). Relax and enjoy some alcoholic beverages.

Have a great New Years.

I had one of the first WRXs in the US back in March 2001 -- had it for 6 years. I loved it.

I loved my 2004 R53 more.

Dream Car 1974 Red Jeep CJ-5 that my Dad Use to own, we would take it up to the Colorado mountains /11 mile State Park every weekend in the summer of 1976-1977 as a kid. he completely restored it. Would love to have that Jeep, and wish I knew how to find it, he sold it in Colorado Springs after being diagnosed with cancer. Only car on my Bucket list.
