    Still want a corrado. Never managed to be in the right position at the right time to buy one.

    There’s one of those Skylines for sale near me for 50k and it’s the only one I’ve ever seen in the flesh. It’s a stunner. Lightyears ahead of what was available from other manufacturers in 1972.

    Personally, I could fill a few pages so I’ll just post my current crush.

    No real interest in a fast car for the road anymore. I just want something for the track with sticky tyres and flame throwing exhaust.

    POW Volante. Preferably this one;

    Or, a DB4GT. Like this one;

    But, really, it would be the awfully raffish, V600 Le Mans.

    It’s a one shot deal gentlemen/ladies 😉

    If I won the lottery into 7 figures I might have to get a 911 of some sort – a 2WD “basic” one. For some reason there is something that’s enduringly appealing about every generation of that car to me and the Carrera 2 or whatever the bottom end one is these days would be enough I think to scratch the itch.

    Title says “Cars you covet”. Plural. So, I’ll have those three, thanks. If it had to be one, it would be the V600. I just love the utter lunacy of it, and the noise. Oh, my Lord above….the noise! A properly coach built work of art, made by men in brown coats but with the power to turn the world off it’s axis.

    The POW is a lovely statement car, from an age that was full of awful cars.
    The DB4GT is the overlooked stunner. Everyone looks at the “Bond” cars, but they’re wrong. Of course, they’re wrong as Bond drove a Blower, but they’re also wrong as that GT is, well…..just look at it!

    Oh, and possibly a ’56 Bentley Continental DHC by Mulliner Park Ward.

    You should steer clear of rusty Mercedes coupes unless you want to spend money on restoration!

    That might be the one that was up for auction at Goodwood at £895k or so. Expensive tastes, CFH! (But I think we knew that).

    Singer 911. With a roof rack.

    Stoner, stop that filth!

    Mrs CFH grew up with one of those. And an UR quattro SWB. There’s one of the “normal” ones in the village, and it’s lovely. Utterly lovely. The UR are ever more so!

    Julian, there are, I believe, around 15 of them left, and that price sounds about right. A near neighbour had one when we lived in London. Used to use it to drive his dogs to the park for a walk. Class. Pure, undiluted class!

    (Hope your old banger’s doing well, BTW. And no, I don’t mean Mrs A! She’d kill me!)

    I am joining the Quattro crew. RR engine and the daft odd dash, so post 1985 I think…a lovely one sits barely used in our old village…

    I co owned a lovely red ’67 V8 Mustang Convertible with my Dad for 10 years (in my 20’s). I miss it so much.

    Another Quattro ur fan here.
    I had the original Audi 80 sport, which was a very poor mans version.

    I saw a beautiful pale blue jensen interceptor convertible today while I was out on the bike

    My dad taught me from very young that it was the best car, like, evvah.

    So that, please

    (Edit – funnily enough, my mum always used to tell him those ^ lancias were much nicer)

    @CFH Yes, the Merc is doing nicely, thank you. Tickover almost completely sorted out by new plugs so now very useable. Trip to the the Revival went perfectly.

    Looking forward to taking her to the continent some time.

    MrsA is now surfing for deals on Sabatier…

    Telsa Model X. Cars to me are normally just things to get you from A to B, possibly with a bike attached, never really been interested in cars, but I’d love a Tesla.

    Original Stratos in full GrP A trim

    Any one of these please…
    or, from the opposite end of the spectrum:
    Almost bought one when I lived in Oman, but it was registered as a commercial vehicle, and I wouldn’t have been able to register it… 🙁

    Boring but I want a Spec B Legacy estate.

    Less boring, I want a garage and a vauxhall firenza and an unlimited amount of time and money to do something stupid to it.
