What three classic/special-use vehicles would you put in your dream garage? Maybe it's a trio of identical '68 Camaros. Maybe it's a Massey-Ferguson 135, a Buick LeSabre, and a Ferrari Daytona. Or an Olds Aerotech, Lunar Rover, and Ducati Diana. Whatever your tastes, tell us what constitutes your ideal happy place.
My current collection is a 1958 Edsel retractable hardtop, a 1968 International 3/4 ton pickup, and my daily driver is a 1971 Mercedes 300 SEL. All are driven and used regularly.
Top of my list is an early Jaguar XKE coupe - it's only the most beautiful car in the world (per Enzo Ferrari).
Next is an original (no kit) Shelby Corba with the 289 in blue with white stripes - of course.
Lastly is a 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 two door hardtop. It's big, heavy, loaded with goodies and was the first car I owned.
I already have my three car collection comprised of my childhood dream car of a 1965 A/C Shelby Cobra 427 (replicar, but at least I can drive mine), and on the opposite side of the spectrum, a first edition Jaguar F-Type "R" (same 550 HP as the Cobra, but with all the technological goodies and creature comforts) and my wife's limited edition Halle Berry 007 James Bond Thunderbird (looks like a Barbie car in Coral). Soon I will top off my collection with the first mid-engine C8 Corvette Stingray in Sebring Orange with after market scissor doors. Livin' (and drivin') the dream!
1971 Trans Am - would keep mostly original, but upgrade suspension. Other options would be ~1970 Corvette Stingray or ~1965-67 Mustang Fastback GT350
1950 Willys Pickup - full restomod and slightly lifted
1967 Jeepster - because everyone needs a convertible. Full restomod and slight lifted
Geez, only three? Well, here's what I'd put in my very special 3-car garage:
1966 Shelby GT 350, candy apple red with no body stripe, preferably the one I bought new in November 1966 then sold a couple years later to buy a Lotus.
1966 Alfa Romeo Giulia TI Super - the homologation special of the Giulia Super sedan. I'd even sell the Super I have now to get room for a TI Super.
1969 Lotus Elan +2 - sexiest Lotus ever!
A 1957 Corvette, a Jaguar XKE, any year, and a 1934 Ford two door sedan (the Bonnie and Clyde car). Of all the cars I've owned and presently own, those would be the ones I'd like to have!
It's getting a bit repetitious, but three of the 4 cars in my little stable are all marvelous, and remarkable, in their own way:
'71 E-Type roadster,
'08 Aston Martin V8 Vantage MANUAL roadster,
'05 Honda S2000.
( The fourth is a '95 Honda Beat, but I digress...)
