I have new car fever. I can't buy any more guitars so I guess my GAS is turning back to cars, my 1st love.

Much like guitars, the coolest old cars are too expensive for my income. But if money were no object? Man...

What's your ULTIMATE, no holds-barred, money-no-object, Dream Car?

Here's mine. A 1925 Bugatti Type 35B or a Type 39.

I'll turn fifty in a few days, and sad to say I've never had a new car. It just never happened for one reason or another.

If I could go buy a new vehicle now, it would probably be some type of Dodge pickup. Club cab (some call it a cab-and-a-half), or maybe a four door; full size bed; maybe even a dualie; NO diesel!; NO camper/topper etc., but a nice lockable hard cover for the bed. No redneck lift kit, no gigantic 'Look at me! Mine's bigger than yours!' wheels, extra loud tailpipes, or any of that other silliness... Just a good, depenbable, nice, daily driver. Why the lockable bed cover? Hey, if I can afford a new pickup, then I can afford a flock of new guitars and amps to haul with it, and I gotta keep 'em safe!

As for other cars I'd like to own, do a search for 'Don Garlits'. Check out Swamp Rat #34. That'd suit me fine. In fact, any Swamp Rat from #14 to #34 would be great, but #34 is the pinnacle as far as I'm concerned. From the best drag racer ever in my opinion, and one whose ideas are still being copied today, the latest being enclosed cockpits for top fuelers. Supposedly a new invention, he perfected the concept and began using it over twenty-seven years ago.

Hans: The gullwing 300SL behind your car in the picture would be fine ...

That's a cool Ferrari Shawn. I got to see one in person a few years back (2002 or 2003).

Some fat cat had his collection on display near Richmond. He had a neat old Alfa Romeo too. Here are the pics I kept.

Here's the Alfa.

Check out the center drive seat on this 1967 365 P/2 (Pininfarina) Speciale! And you though McLaren was the 1st! :) It is my understanding that only 2 of these exist.
