    As a kid I really thought I wanted a Jaguar XKE in British Racing Green with the buckskin interior. Boy I'm glad I didn't get one. Ended up with a '70 Impala Sport Coupe, one of 2500 made.

    When I was a teenager, I wanted to someday own this:

    So I bought a Vette keyfob and used it to hold the keys of the cars that I was actually able to afford. In my 40s I finally bought one, but it wasn't as cool to own as I anticipated for all those years.

    I did not, and still do not lust after any cars.
    I had the advantage of working at my dads auto repair shop, so I got to play with other peoples a cars and quickly realized that most of them were over rated.

    After my first car, a '49 DeSoto, the '57 Chevy was my dream come true. The Chevy was a game changer in several respects.

    Ever since i saw reruns of The Dukes of Hazard as a kid in the late 80's and early 90's i have always lusted after a 1969 Dodge Charger. That is one car i will always want no matter what. A 1969 Charger is my grail car.

    The V12s were a sad end to a once beautiful car. The early/mid '60s 6's were more lively, prettier, and just more fun. The 12's came out because emissions choked the free revving 6 and, IMHO, the bigger 12 changed the balance and feel of the car from a giddy little sports car to a highway cruiser. Plus, the exterior trim had to meet new DOT standards and uglied up the car.
    I had driven a few 6's before I drove a 12 and was very exited about driving one since I'd grown up thinking it had to be the best XKE. They say you should never meet your heroes because you will be dissapointed..... yeah, that goes for cars too.
    The 6's, especially the early ones, were sex on wheels.

    Wow, too many to list but most of them have been listed anyway. I saw one of these at a local used car lot when I was 16 but my folks wouldn't let me get it. It was pretty ragged out anyway.

    I still love the '57 Chevy looks, and memories that car provided are priceless. I see one on the street now and then and my mind is flooded with happy thoughts. I drove mine over 90,000 miles, then traded it for a '62 Chevy 2DHT.

    I hope you get your '57 dream Chevy. Consider canary yellow if you have a choice; that color served me very well, and it's my favorite color to this day.
