What do you want and keep hold of?  We all have our favourites, some more obscure than others.  Let's have it.

 

What I want to get my hands on if I had the space are as follows.

Rover 820.  Probably saloon this time, had 2 fastbacks.  Maybe even the diesel.  Include the coupe in that.

Rover 418SD turbot estate.

Rover Metro/100 with K series engine.  Include the diesel.  Stupid mpg on that.

Volvo diesel estate for dragging the holiday box.  I would need a solid beasty for this.

DB7.  Why not!

 

I'll amend if I remember anything.


Nissan Almera 1.5  = daily power shite

VW Polo  = Other halfs daily powerless shite

I know I'll probably get told they're shit but here goes -  A Citroen DS, probably a 21 and a Citroen SM.

 

And actually, if someone gave me a mint Austin Maxi in a good colour I'd happily tool about in that.

 

Other than that I'm quite happy shitting myself on wet motorways in my GT 86.

This could be a long list, but off the top of my head... The current top of the list is

 

Land Rover Discovery 3.... because who doesn't love expensive unreliability?

Range Rover L322 supercharghed, as above, faster.

VW Touareg V10 TDI.... as above, but you need a specialist rig for engine work

VW Passat B3 TDI Estate... Sentimental reasons, They've gone silly money now, sadly.

Fiat Marea 2.0 20v..... Because 5 cylinder Italian police car... Car i possibly regret not buying second most

Fiat Croma Turbo... Rarer than rocking horse poo, see B3 passat.

Fiat Tipo Sedicivalvole

Fiat Panda 4x4 Sisley

Renault Clio Williams.... My biggest car regret not getting one that was MOT'd and priced at £850 but in need of rear arches. Even spending £2000 on the body and paint i'd have likely tripled my money. Prices of them exploded about 6 months later, can't even get a bare shell for under 2k now. Useable ones start at £5500.

BMW E38 750i... Not as good as the 740, but if less is more, just think how much more more could be.... A black one looks and sounds a symphony of evil at start up.

Volvo 850 T5, manual, of any flavour.

1999ish Audi A6 2.8 Quattro manual (2.7T if I dont have to pay for repairs) - Liked my winter beater so much that I want one with more grunt now

1990ish Infiniti Q45 - From the golden Era of Japanese automakers, lots of power and luxury in a very interesting body style

1992ish Honda Legend Coupe manual - Probably one of the best cars Honda has ever built

1991 Chevrolet Caprice Classic LTZ - I loved this generation Caprice since I've first seen it in Jumanji probably 20 years ago

Every single last gen GM B-body with the LT1 V8

1992ish Mercedes W140 S500L/500SEL Black with grey lower body cladding, brown/tan interior and orange indicators - Just one of the best cars ever built

 

These are at least the cars from the top of my head I would instantly jump on, should they show up for sale around here at one point, sufficient funds provided. The list is endless for cars I'm generally interested in...


1996 BMW E39 540i 6-Speed       - Newest Arrival, for now in daily Use

1996 BMW E39 528i                      - Contemplating whether to keep or sell...
1995 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC           - Now famous for having been on the Nordschleife

1995 Oldsmobile Aurora                - Fuel Filter finally replaced! Still doesn't start...
1993 Renault Safrane V6              - I should really put it in for an MOT...
1992 Toyota Celsior C-Spec          - Now with new Alternator and PS Pump! Finding a Set of Coilovers next!
1991 Opel Senator 3.0 24V           - Now with new Fuel Hoses & Vacuum lines!

Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo with 6 speed box.

They say never meet your heroes, in this case, i'd agree.

 

I love the 20vt coops, there's so, so much right with the LE models and the last ones (where they fitted the bits from the LE like the 6 speed box), but sadly, the gearbox itself isn't one of them. It's just an existing Alfa box and the ratios are all wrong for the 20vt engine. The 5 speed is better.

 

And they are bizarre on insurance for some unbeknown reason. A standard 20vt Coupe isn't bad at all on insurance, pretty much the same as an average warm cooking Mondeo. When it gets to the late ones, the insurance treads into Ferrari territory despite it being a near identical car bar the gearbox!

I want different things almost every week - not things I could go out and buy but fantasy things.  It changes almost every time I buy a lottery ticket....

 

However two vehicles remain a constant Want. 

 

A really nice Mk3 Zodiac.  Had a few Mk3s but I want a Nice One.    

 

Also a Jaguar 3.4.   Not the caddish Mk2 but a muted murky coloured Mk1.   With hubcabs.     

 

I suppose I should add a 1959 flat top Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan.   With that retina-searing all red interior.  

 

Yeah, that would all do....

In addition I'd have a Maserati Biturbo, a CX, a BX, a Dolly (not a sprint, but a modified lowly one-has anyone ever put a Saab turbo in one?), a Volvo 700 with a V8, an automatic XM, SD1 (2.6 auto I think), a number of Land Rovers-Defender 90, Disco 4(?), an SM, a J-body yank (I think, the ones that look like Cavaliers), a Fox-body Mustang...I going to bed now but will continue the list in the morning.
