What would it be? But just one.

My wife actually engaged me in a conversation about cars a while ago, and she ended up asking this question.

I found it interesting just how hard it was to come up with an answer. I thought about the obvious exotic options, and while great cars, they don't fit my style and obviously aren't practical. I think a Jag XKR would be a great car, but I would probably lean toward a non-turbo Porsche 911 or Cayman since they are so much more efficient. The sweet Maserati Quattroporte is high on the list, but a bit bigger than I like. Honestly, a C6 Vette would not be turned away, either, but would not be fun in the winter.

I gave up. I think I would like a 2-place, or 2+2 hardtop, and that's about as far as I can get. Pretty bad when you can't even to pretend to spend money you don't have.....

If I had to pick one car to drive the rest of my life, Mercedes S-Class. If I had to pick one car to I could never afford, Lamborghini Murcielago. My attainable dream car would still have to be a late model 300ZX. But my next car will probably be a civic.

'61 Chrysler 300G. (would have to be a model RC4P, 413, dual quads, ram air). Don't forget the big-ass fins for stability at high speeds!! :)

I can't help it, I just love 'em.
Man, that is like falling in love with a crack-whore. :cry:

I always thought the XJS's were really cool, too. Isn't there a company that re-builds these cars so they perform well reliably? I think I remember a Top Gear episode where they tested one.

Tough choice. I would love a Cayman, but I am not sure I could live without a wagon. The RS4 Avant is a little small but I could probably get used to it. The A6 V6 TDI is great, but might be too big.
