    What is your ideal car from what's available on the market today, and why?

    In an unrealistic world, a McLaren F1 (or I'd take the new P1 as well).

    I have always been a big fan of the late 90's early 2000's Dodge Viper. Blue with white racing stripes...

    Why? It's beautiful, rare, and fast.

    Prepare to have your heart broken. Yahoo!

    I would love to have a 67 Camaro.

    I was just looking on Ebay and see two 1970 Buick Electras. I would love to have one of those. I think that was my favorite car.

    Mid 60s Shelby GT350 convertible. It's a shame the prices have gone stratospheric the last 10 years making them nearly unattainable. Maybe someday, I'll find a replica

    I would have to break this up into different segments:

    Dream Sports Car and money no object.

    Ferrari 458 Italia. Yes, there are faster sports cars but I don't care. The looks and sound.

    Daily Driver, money no object.

    Aston Martin Vanquish V12

    Keeping it somewhat realistic, a Nissan GT-R Nismo would be nice.

    Back in the day I had a white, with tan leather interior 56 MG Midget.[sigh] But alas, it went away when the boyfriend did.

    I want my 1974 Ford Mustang II back. It was four cylinder and a manual transmission. It was basically a go-cart with a windshield but it was a lot of fun.

    Don't really have one. Vehicle are a tool to me; nothing more. My dream vehicle gets decent mileage, is reliable, and let's me do what I need to.

    Would really like a 2014 Silverado High Country edition.

    But seeing as I just rolled my 2000 accord over to 300,000 miles last weekend, I would be content with most any vehicle under 100,000.
