    Yea baby! 911 Turbo with whale tail and obnoxious wide rear tires with huge fender flares. Still want one today! A guy I know who owns a body shop always said, years ago, to buy used Porsches... you won't go wrong. From what I've read the last couple years, he was right - Those 911 and other Porsches that were so (relatively) affordable years ago are now jumping in price.

    Also lusted after all the various Mustangs....

    1965 Corvette, it wasn't new. I had a chance to buy a nice one from a widow in the early 80's for $4000, but I didn't have the money for the car or for the high insurance needed for a teenager to drive a Vette.

    When young, never really cared much for cars - raised on a farm in southern MO. It was tractors and pick-ups. I had an old 1950 Chevy 5 window 1/2 ton P-U. However, what I did lust after was one of these. The one I got did not quite look this good. ;)

    I loved my 151. One of the worst days I remember was when they took it away from me and gave me a humvee.

    My dad bought one of those in the early 80’s. Basket case. He restored it and painted it similar to that.

    Not even sure how I found out they existed, but I really wanted to get a De Tomaso Pantera when I was a kid. I think I've only ever seen 2 or 3 in person on the street, in real life.

    When I got my license, my dad's '68 Mustang convertible was in the process of being restored, and that was going to be mine to drive. So I knew that was coming and didn't have a problem with having to drive the very uncool family sedan in the meantime.

    In 1982 or 1983 it was the Mercedes 550.

    My brothers best friend in high school had one of these, his was white. His senior year he wrapped it around a tree. Apparently he had an argument with his father and was driving while angry. He's still alive almost 40 years later. But he's never been the same.

    I worked with a guy from Haiti who said that the drivetrain from the all wheel drive Eclipse would bolt directly to the 3rd Gen Hyundai Tiburon body, and along with a punched out motor the combination was difficult to beat on the track...

    It was even this same color. Gutless worn out 1300CC engine. Thing had a 1 ton capacity. And you could tell when you hit a bump.
