This is what i would park in my dream garage. Well boys lets show what you would have in your garage if money and the wife is no object. Here we go. LOL


Sorry kids the Renault 110 would be 1st the Alfa 2nd the Lancia 3rd and the 190Sl would come in last. I can,t explain it nobody in our family is from Italy or France. I just always loved the R110 and the Alfa and yes my Mom dropped me to many times on the head as a Baby.:biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh:

1977 Triumph TR-8, which evidently was recently voted "One of the Top-50 Worst cars ever built"! :p Gotta love British Leyland and a Rover V-8, and a build quality standard that left the debut car "boiling" at the Frankfurt Motor Show.




But if we are dreaming, 1959 GT Boano is top o' the bucket list!

Too poor to even dream of a car as a child/young adult.

Berliner......noticed you selected an Alfa Montreal...just happened to see one last night on the TV show What is My Car Worth? with Kirsten Gum. It was original and in very good condition....sold for 20K I think. Pretty rare...never sold in the US. Kirsten Gum is stunning and seems to know her cars!!!!:tu:

I had a 74 2000 Spider.....not much power, but really fun to drive. However, it was chronically out of service due to a variety of small, but pesky mechanical/electrical failures.

My favorite was the original XKE, but these days I just hate old cars.

I'd probably be OK with a Porsche 356 twin grille, but that's about it for old stuff.

Or perhaps a '66 Mustang with lots of driving lights and 145 painted on the doors.

Kids great choices i love the cars you posted the Lambo Ferarri is the killer the Audi Q 4 was the killer on the Rally Circus. The Porsche and Vw are just awesome. The new and old no matter what you fav. car was back than. Maybe just maybe we all screwed up abit. Well some cars where made in the 50 60 70 80th,s and if we you have been not so much on drugs alcohol and mushrooms back than before we said I do just maybe we all would have a bigger Garage Lol. Thx for a great post and for the Ladies reading this. Come on now you know our secret. We don,t think about Sex every 10 secs we think about dreamcars from our childhood. We don,t need any Viagra sitting in a bloody bathtube in the middle of nowhere in Amerca. We just need a childhood dream car in our garage let us shine the Chrome let us get dirty let us talk and screw up things. I be shure when we come out of the garage you don,t need to go out with your girlfriends watching guys with ueber large chests and small wieners in Speedos. And ladies if you do it right in the heat of the moment i be shure we Childhood Dreamers even agree to change you oil .... It,s all how you look at thinks. LOL And Guys once again Thx for a great response.

You must be very young if they were your 'CHILDHOOD Dreamcars ' :biglaugh::biglaugh:
:biglaugh:, I saw James put the 599 GTO so I decided to add mine as well. Still very much a child in the inside. Someone told me to stop driving my father's Porsche lol. In my mid 30's but look like I'm in my mid 20's. Although I am seeing a few wrinkles around the eyes. lol. Anyway. I had a white lamborghini countach and the Ferrari testarossa on my wall. I've always wanted a Ferrari F355, now that I can afford one, not really interested anymore. Like I've said, I'm into newer cars now.

Everything I got as a child was a "hand-me-down" so you'll have to ask my older brother what I wanted.
