you never forgot. what motor vehicle stuck in your brain as the one you still dream about today and why?

For me it is my '67 Corvette, I just loved driving this car top down. The rumble of the side pipes was the best damn music I ever listened too. The way it fit me when I drove it. The one memory I never forgot was coming home from Philly driving up the NE extension, top down, with those side pipes rumbling and Rod Stewart blasting on the radio singing "Maggie May". I owned two more Vette's after this one along with many other muscle cars. But I have to say; she was my first... boy how I miss her.

What say you?

I never really owned a "Muscle Car" As a young man I was always fascinated by large luxury cars and I owned a bunch of those over the years.
Of the ones I owned, I probably miss two of them the most, I had a '66 Cadillac de Ville Convertible that was a great runner (I also had a '66 Fleetwood at the same time) the other was my '75 Continental Mark IV, also a great cruiser. It was a gem, beautiful condition with low miles, but awful gas mileage. My driving from home to college and to work each day was just about 80 miles a day (lived in Northern Michigan then, everything was a distance) it just got to be too expensive as a daily driver. I used to joke "That it would pass everything but a gas station" Boy I do miss it now though, I always meant to get another one-just never happened.

WHEW!!!! ... more memory digging!!! LOL!

My 1st serious girlfriend - and kiss - happened in my '72 Chevy 3/4-ton pickup. She was a pretty thing... sky-blue with all the Cheyenne trim. NOT THE GIRLFRIEND... THE TRUCK! LOL!
Although, the girlfriend was a looker... and a great kisser. At the least the 1st time around. We dated 'twice'. I had the '72 both times. Actually, the '72 worked out better than the girlfriend.

I'd like to find that truck again.
That girlfriend? ... I wish her well. ...'nuf said.

Still my Uncle Ron's '64 GTO, all black and mean. The first muscle car I ever rode in. I remember the smiles every time he'd get on it. I'd love to have that car now....WOW!!!!

Of all my cars I miss my 83 Thunderbird Turbo. It was red with a 5 speed. I could get 35 mpg with the 4 cylinder turbo. I put over 180,000 miles on that engine before I foolishly traded it in for a troublesome Dodge.

I still have good memories of my first car, a '46 Plymouth with a squirt gun paint job, wobbly wheels and a smoking engine (literally). Well, I also miss the sectioned '49 Ford powered by a 3/4 race flathead. I will never forget my Mitusbishi Starion with an intercooler and a modified chip that I installed. Have to include that gorgeous '53 Merc Monterey hardtop (that's the car where I got my first "kiss" in the back seat). Oh! And how I loved my '53 Plymouth Belevedere hardtop. Gees I often think about the restored '88 Bronco that had a $5,000 paint job on it (put on by the previous owner). Also wish I still had the '55 Crown Victoria.

It's useless for me to choose one car. I fell/fall in love with all of them for one reason or another. I've owned my current vehicle, a 2004 (bought new in 2003) Expedition and love it as much today as I did when I bought it.

Now if you want to talk girlfriends . . .

Probably would be the '66 Buick Skylark I drove when I attended college. On my own for the first time, just a great period of my life.

Now if I expand "vehicle" to include trucks, that would be the '56 Chevy single axle tractor my Dad used in our business for decades, before legal loads got heavier and we needed bigger tandem axle trucks. I rode along with him in that '56 truck for many many miles.

That would be my '69 Chevelle SS396 convertible, with 350 h.p., a 4 speed stick, etc. We modified it with a high rise intake manifold, a 728 Holley carb, headers (a big mistake), etc. However, I still miss my first new car, a '64 Chevy II 100 2 door post. It had a radio deleted, rubber mats instead of rugs, three on the tree, and a 283. It was a real sleeper.

I have three that I really liked my 57 Olds S-88 Ht, my 58 Pontiac Chieftain Convertible and my 61 Pontiac Catalina Convertible of the 3 the 61 would win as my top love. Girls there were a few that went with each car. But my 68 GTO which would be my fourth favorite was what I drove when I was dating my wife so I have to be careful about her looking over my shoulder lol!
