    Smile Six decades of dream cars

    With all of the bad news we hear everyday, I thought it would be fun to pick your dream car, regardless of cost, from each decade starting with the 1950's. Here is what I would pick.
    1950's- 1956 Mercedes Benz 300SL aluminum bodied coupe with Rudge wheels and a competition cam. One of only 29 aluminum bodied coupes; 25 built in 1955 and 4 in 1956. " The BMW 507 was a close runner up."
    1960's- 1967 Ferrari 275GTS/4 NART spyder. One of only 10 built and my favorite all time Ferrari.
    1970's- 1973 Ferrari 365GTS/4 Daytona spyder. Another beautiful 12 cylinder, front engined Ferrari convertible. About 125 built.
    1980's- 1985 Porsche 959. A virtual test bed of technology that would make its way into future Porsche models.
    1990's- McClaren F1. Gorgeous to look at and blindingly quick. Unusual seating with the driver in the center and one seat slighlty behind the driver on each side.
    2000 to now- No brainer. The only one of my dream car list currenly sitting in the garage. BMW Z8!!

    I'll give up a kidney to have the following cars in my garage

    60s - De Tomaso Mangusta
    70s - Lamborghini Miura (the only lambo that I care for)
    80's - BMW M1
    90's - Ferrari F40 (the only ferrari that I care for) ~ not exactly 90s, but close enough
    00's - Z8 (a second one, garage queen, black/red)

    Those are hard sets to better, but here goes...

    50's - Jaguar D Type (but would take a Maserati Tipo 61)
    60's - DB5 Volante convertible (but would take a Bentley S111 Continental convertible)
    70's - Porsche RS (or an Iso Griffo IR8)
    80's - Audi Quattro SWB Rally car (not a big fan of the style of most 80's cars!)
    90's - Acura NSX (because it was such a great track day toy!)
    00's - Lotus Exige S (ditto!)
