    I driver a Mercedes S class. Would like to get an Aston Martin but I am not fond of the interior (or the price).
    Really, I've always found the Aston's interior to be one of the most beautiful aspects of the car.

    The attention to style and detail is simply amazing.

    I'm driving my dream car.

    609rwhp and 609 rwtq. Naturally aspirated. Too many modifications to list.

    Lobbs are doing well. Gathering more dust than wear, however, as are all of my "nice" clothes.
    I've not been posting because I've become rather unstylish, I'm afraid. I started a new consulting business and I'm working from my home these days. I transact all of my business over the phone or via the internet. I only wear "grown up" clothes about twice a month when I'm actually meeting with clients face to face. Lots of days, I don't ever change out of my pajamas. I haven't bought a tie, or a suit, or a dress shirt, or a pair of dress shoes in over a year.

    I am currently the owner of a '93 Jeep Cherokee Country.

    There are far too many cars I'd rather be driving, but the most easily accessible 'dream car' is probably a stock '64 Impala or '66 Galaxie 500, especially since I can't drive a manual.

    A buddy had a Buick town and country wagon w/ a 440 Hemi... A car like that gets you out of speeding tickets. He and I were headed back to school from a break doing 100+ only to have the cop pull us over to sneak a peak at the engine.

    Kai, nice to see you back also, and you know, SF isn't just about the clothes....

    There are many things wrong with this sentence.

    While I do like my current car, I would have to say my dream car would be Bentley Continental GT.

    currently: 2004 Mini Cooper

    if I had up to 100k to buy any car, I'd still buy another Mini over any other car

    now if I had 100+k to buy a car, it'd be the Maserati GranTurismo


    my other dream car I wanted and eventually got was a chopped/lowered 54 Chevy Bel Air coupe, but the reality became more of a nightmare/hassle than the dream prior to owning it

    Currently: 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix

    Dream Car (realistic): Mazda Miata (ever since I read Car and Driver's glowing review on the 1998 re-design). Hoping to get a 1st generation in a few months (during winter when convertibles are cheaper)

    Dream Car: Mint condition, or fully restored 1969 Datsun 240Z

    I am about to move to a country where the prospect of owning a car just doesn't make sense in terms of expense or hassle (Singapore). But my dream car is definitely a Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Zagato without rust that I could use as a daily driver. Baring that a 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000 or a Porsche 356A (not a 90210 speedster!) or an old Citroen DS. Modern cars? Realistically a Mini Cooper S, dreamland an 8C.
