    Easily Ferrari, since I was a kid my favorite cars have been the 328, Testarossa, F40, F50, and then the 360 modena. The enzo and scaglieta have somewhat let me down but the 360/430 is still my favorite car to this day.

    If you mean every day joe shmoe brand I'd say BMW. It has the most cars across the board that I like, the e90 3 series, the M3, the M5, 7-series, and Z8.

    Lucas, Prince of Darkness.

    That is a good one.

    My brother once quipped that if the military used Lucas electrics, wars wouldn't start.

    My favorite car brands are, predictably, Packard in the vintage category, and in the modern category, probably BMW, though my current favorite car is the Maserati Quattraporte.

    Have you seen the Paul Smith cufflinks from a few seasons ago with the Bristol 405 on them? (Front on one, back on another.)

    Saw them, and was sorely tempted, but left them in the shop. But I like the way Smith uses the image of the car. Pic of one like the one in the ad above: [​IMG]

    All things considered, I'd have a 246 Dino and a 360 Modena.

    I can't help but give props to the post on the DÃ[​IMG]esse.

    I'm pretty much an ex-Porsche guy. They are excellent well-balanced cars, but they are too expensive for what they are. I replaced mine with two cars:

    Nice Rides. Can you give a critique of the Lotus, from a 'livability' standpoint?
