Toss up for me between my first car, 73 340 Plymouth Duster and my current SRT challenger.
‘72 Dodge Challenger Ralley 340
‘73 Ford Gran Torino Sport 351C fastback
Current ... ‘10 Dodge Challenger R/T
2001 Trans Am Firehawk #302. 540 of them made that year; 34 or 36 were Canadian cars. Won the All-GM Nationals for Daily Driver Pontiac 1980-newer in 2002; had to sell it, though. Now its one of 8 or 10 Firehawks in Europe!
Not a Mach 1 but still one of my favorites. I still have this one.... 1969 sport factory color and 351W
So the mustang was one of my favorites but my favorite is this beast.... 502rwhp and 486 torque
67 goat is the coolest cruiser I've had...sold it this spring like a DA
Still have this one but it's a bit gayish and currently on the chopping block
Had a few cool cars. Current car is one of the coolest and also the fastest I have owned. Dodge Charger Hellcat.
55 Chevy convertible. Bought it in 1970 with $300 my dad loaned me. All stock except for new top and fresh baby blue paint. 250 6 cyl, 3 on the tree converted to floor. I was a aircraft mechanic in the USAF and my best friend was in the motor pool and was in charge of the auto hobby shop on the base. When we were done with it... 421 Pontiac with tri-power, 4 speed Muncie, bucket seats, aluminum mags. Wish I would've kept that car but I got sent to Germany. Oh well......
My 1968 Chrysler Newport was a cool sled. I would have loved to keep it, but it was too big to fit in my garage!
84 C4 My current puddle ju
Lots of nice cars on here!! From 1974 to 1982 my daily driver was a 1968 Shelby GT500KR. Found it on a car lot in Los Angeles. Bought it with re-enlistment bonus and Ford XL trade in. Was a good car.. would pass everything but a gas station... literally!!
1977 Toyota Celica. It was a ball to drive.
either the '34 Chevy coupe (in my avatar) with suicide doors I built, or the '32 Ford. Altho the '40 ford was tuff!..so was the '68 Power Wagon and '72 Challenger!

Weird how time changes your perspective. I’ve had multiple of each. Corvettes,Cameron’s trans am, mustang, Chevelles and GTO’s and a few hot rod trucks.Never likes the looks of Mopar stuff) Never really regret selling any of them. In the end, they are just modes of transportation. We are at a time in our life where we could afford any car within reason. I really like my beat up 15 Scion XB. Not planning on replacing it unless it blows up. Getting ready to hit a 100k and I’m hoping to get 200k more out of.
Sold the Callaway convertible and picked this one up. A 2007 Ron Fellows Edition Z06 #222. Took it to the tuner , put long tube headers, CNC ported heads, intake, and dyno tuned. On the stock cam it puts down 510RWHP. Super nice , low mileage car. Love it.
I had a '68 300, similar concave body panels. K8 440. Very cool, but in the late 70's drank way too much gas for a kid commuting to college and working on a dairy farm. Sold it and bought a Volvo 142....bit of a difference in the passing lane.
In my younger days, I bought a 70 challenger 340 from the local funeral director's son. My knee when through the side of the rusty front fender while leaning over to adjust the timing. Unfortunately, I just couldn't afford a good one back then. Floor pans leaked so bad stuff grew in the carpet on the passenger's side. Definitely not my coolest car.
These days I still long for Mopar muscle, but kinda like the wind in my hair - what little I have left. I'm waiting for FCA to build a ragtop Challenger...
