Thorny premise for this thread. 911 holds the lead, even if I'm rather dispassionate about them.

It depends too much on your needs. Our minivan is a beast at making our lives easy. Want fuel...

*sigh* makes me miss California. There's no real car culture here to speak of, and what there is, is mostly trucks.

This reminds me of the boxer Jack Johnson. Take this story with a grain of salt.

He had a thing for fast cars. Supposedly he sped through one town somewhere and was pulled over. Back then, you...

Both are unreasonably expensive here. I get the sense that a Skyline is a better tourer, but the Supra is essentially a tourer as well. That being said, I think I'd go the Supra route just for the...

The era might have come to an end in the 80s, if you wanna argue that. But by then the Mustang and Camaro had both moved up from being mere pony cars or secretaries' cars into the muscle car role.

I grew up about an hour from the Blackhawk in Northern California.

Around here, the closest thing to an auto museum is Dos Locos Gringos. It's a pick-n-pull yard.

Near downtown though there is...

I'd like to fill in some details on some of those early memories.

I was a bad offender, pretty provincial in my tastes. My life has changed a lot and so have my proclivities...yeah, I apologize, too, for the dumb crap I've proffered as the gospel truth here.

Ah, the CSL. E46s, and particularly the M3s, are about the only BMWs I would ever care to own. But I don't think a CSL is worth the premium. That said, I totally get why someone would pay the premium...

E46 M3s are one of the only BMWs I have any desire to possibly own. The styling was absolutely nailed down, and I'm told the straight six is both fabulous and really the last of its breed.

Elon Musk is still trading on the slavish goodwill of his fans. Anyone else would have gone down the toilet a long time ago. Tesla, however, still has time.

Ferrari 250GTE and the Lincoln Continental Mark II jump to mind. Also, I think the Miura looks stunning, the Aston DB4/5 and almost everything bodied by Figoni and Falaschi as well.

Congrats on the engagement!

Don't feel bad, my driveway currently hosts a minivan and a 20 year old Civic.
