    Either my 1966 Gt 350 (paid 800.00 for it during the fake gas crisis of the 70's) or the 1968 1/2 428CJ factory drag car (1500 for that one) wish I had either one today 6 figures+, but who knew????

    1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS6, 450 hp. I want to cry every time I see one cross the block selling for six digits.

    I was lucky enough to get to drive one of those at the drag strip on several occasions (owner could handle the car) it made way north of 450hp even in stock form.

    I've had several neat cars, a '64 Corvette, '67 GTO, many BMW (2 of them M3s and another a 2002 with s14 M3 engine), Range Rover HSE, etc. But I got a 2020 Corvette 3lt z51 last week. Nothing else compares.

    If you’re talking about the C8, the wait can be easily a year or more. Nine months for me. They can’t make enough right now to satisfy the demand with all the constraints in available suppliers.

    I took a 30 minute ride in a friends '21 Torch Red Z51 hardtop convertible. I was impressed with how quiet the ride was and how smooth it rode. He had it in tour mode so I am sure that made a difference but you could easily daily drive it. A 7 month wait to get it though. Yikes !

    That I have driven. Nothing compares to this 458 Italia and I have driven M cars at the BMW Performance center track.

    I doubt I’ll ever own a car as cool as this one. Glad I deleted the striping, not needed.

    It’s hard to choose only one……1956 Chevrolet Townsman and 1957 Oldsmobile 88

    This is the most fun car I've owned. 2007 Mustang GT. 5 speed manual. Some mods. I love driving it. Now she just needs a Supercharger ;o)
