If you could have one car from your year of birth?

Post by IndianaJones » Fri 27 Mar 2015, 08:49

Hi folks

We are all petrolheads here, let's have some fun, and I'm hoping everyone participates.

If you could get one car for free, to keep, manufactured in your year of birth, what would it be?


I'll start...
Although 1981 might not have been a great year for the muscle car, there were some solid cars manufactured, AM Vantage V8, Audi Quattro, BMW M1, C3 Corvette, DeLorean, Cortina XR6, Escort 1600 Sport, 5.0 Fox Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, Porsche 930 Turbo, FJ40 Land Cruiser
My choice: DeTomaso Pantera GT5
Not a muscle car, but a Italian sportscar with a muscle car heart, always preferred it to Magnum's Ferrari 308 or the Countach.

Good question.
1971 , still some nice muscle cars around.
A Ford Mustang Super Cobra 429 Would be nice , But ultimately a Plymouth Cuda would be my Choice.

Awesome choice.

But I would go with cream and red interior.
