i have quite a few....
a caterham CSR which is undeniably the ultimate track car!!
i love SL 65AMG...
and also a lotus exige S
Ferrari F430 spyder and Lambo Gallardo spyder are hard to beat.
the list can go on forever to be honest... but by far my favourite is the mercedes 300SL as posted earlier...a car far beyond its years!!!! and is still as beautiful today as it was on the day it was released. a timeless masterpiece!

LOL...this isn't gradeschool and you don't get extra points.

I too have always enjoyed the lines of the 928. However, my wife said "Don't even think about it, it looks like a bubble-butt." I also like BMW's 850.

Had a 1972 MGB that was bought new in 72 and sold just about 4 years ago. That was a fun little car in its day. Definitely not an exotic, but a damn fine sports car just the same.
All time favorite on the wish list for sports car/muscle car would have to be the 427 Shelby Cobra.
And the winner for exotic would have to be the Maserati Ghibli. I rode in one that belonged to a friend's father when I was a teen and was hooked. I can still remember the smell of the leather. Guess it was my first love! Take a look:

My parents are waiting for the upcoming porsche 928, But I am trying to get them to purchase either a 997 S , 4S, Targa 4s or a Maserati Quattrope; Maybe the upcoming CL500.

If they didnt get one of the above, Most probably a Porsche Panamera.

I'm stuck in the 80's....LOL

My all time favorite is the Lambo with the big wing on the back.

So, if you have an old outdated Lamborgini you don't want anymore...You can give it to me!

I remember seeing a Countach at a gas station in 1984 in Lancaster, CA. I thought "What the hell is he doing here in this podunk town?" LOL. Now it's almost a suburb of LA at 300,000 people...Oh how times change.

During the 80's, I was just a little kid, but had pics of countach's all over my room. It was definatley my dream car at that time. Now I would rather have the new lambo's, give me a gallardo anyday.

Countach:


Gallargo:


Never been a fan of Porsche until the 996, I hated the bug eye look. I thought if I ever get a Porsche, it'll be a 996 until I recently stumbled into a Porsche dealer and saw the new 997, the 996 just looks outdated right next to it. Now I want a 997 C2S, this car has potential.

Gemballa GTR 650 Avalanche 997


I rarely dream about cars that's way out of my reach at this moment in my life but everytime I see the Ferrari F430 spider driving around my heart just stops. I've seen a few of them around my area. But if I had the deposable money right now, I would rather get a gallardo spyder. Every Ferrari owner I've come acrossed, seems to be old & snobby and isn't a car guy, guessed those stereotypes of ferrari owners are true. I've wave in my SLK and they all give me the snobby look, maybe b/c I look like I'm 25yrs old. And the few lambo owners that I've seen seems to down to earth and knows alot about their cars. I think I'm more of a lambo type then a ferrari type.

Gallardo spyder:


F430 spider:

997 TPC turbo C4S
981 Boxster S
06' SLK 350, Iridium/Ash all pkgs. 6-spd, 19" DCR. (Gone but not forgotten)

So many...

Funny that all the ferrari owners you met were like that. All the ones I have met at shows and drives and what not were extremly nice and knowledgeable about there cars. Different Areas I guess.

My insurance broker is a Ferrari owner but he's a real passionate... Can talk about it for hours... Has a F430 Challenge for the track and a 355 for everyday use...

I would have preferred a snobish one because he's boring and trashes other makers (but Porsche)
