    If you had the money, and could afford any car ever made, what car would you want? There are sooo many fantasy cars out there, how does a person pick one?!

    A fully restored 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, lime green and black or a 1968 Plymouth Roadrunner with the 440 six-pack, any color.

    I'd be obligated to show every kid with a little rice burner what a real car is.

    As neat as all the exitics and customs are, for me it all comes back to classic American steel. The decade between 1960 through 1970 was the pinnacle of American car production. Some of the baddest, best looking and best performing designs ever made were produced in that period.

    The high revving motors are neat but when a muscle car rumbles up next to me at the light and I can feel it through my seat, now that gives me some serious goosebumps!

    So what would you get, eh?

    Been passanger and driven a lot of fast cars and bikes but the biggest thrill was in a Mazda RX3 13BPP revving at over 10,000rpm whilst doing a bit of circle work. I could definitely feel it through the seat. Same car running mid 9's down the quarter street legal.

    I can't decide! I think there are too many variables. If you want a muscle car, then a fast back 68-70 stang or a GT 500 (like the one in the movie Gone in 60 seconds). The problem is that for all of the "muscle" they had, most of todays's cars will out perform the muscle cars. They ran in the mid 14's to high 13's in the quarter mile and top speed were no where near what they are today. A lot of cars out perform muscle cars that aren't classified as sports cars. If I wanted an exotic, it would either be the Mclaren or the new Porshe Carrera GT for speed but for just a sexy looking beast, nothing has better lines than the Ferrari modena 360.

    My fave would be a 1967 Austin Healy Mk 111/ 3000 in British Racing green with a white convertable top. Used to own one and let it get away. Breaks my heart

    Well, unfortunately lads/ladies, we all lost...I dont think anyone can compete with MSB5150's entry. That thing sure does win in my opinion...
