OK guys post pics / specs / reasons for your favourite car of all time! No, it doesn't have to be JDM. :roll: :lol:

For me, it's the Lamborghini Miura P400. I don't really need to explain - it was a breakthrough in technology, symbolic of its time and utterly beautiful. Arguably the first true "supercar", it has always been exclusively for the rich and famous. The car that made Enzo blush. If I ever got one I'd probably get the S, as they're a bit cheaper and I love the eyelashes.

My favourite car of all time is the ~~ BMW M3 CSL ~~

Its what all BMW's should be like....

It is:
# SEXY
# FAST
# Sounds like SEX
# Got a great engine, and a Carbon Roof 8)

AND I LOVE THEM .....

Okay, here it is.
I disregarded any sense of daily life, and asked myself the question "If all cars costed the same amount of money, which car would i buy!?!?!?!"

My choice would be the DBR9

Bogan hit the nail on the head with the Aston Martin .....

Kinda on topic, and also offtopic, whilst on holiday in Launceston Tasmania of all places .... i was walking around the port area with my gf, and i spotted the following. Naturally i was drooling over the Vantage, and the garage it was heading into!

Reckon the plates on the Porsche would be worth much ???

Yeah this is the ultimate car. I was reading about it... very veryyy fast! Masarti only made 12. You have to be invited to buy it... So it's exclusive shit... that's why I would love to own one of these machines!

Justin Fox
16-09-06, 08:47 PM
OK then. I've decided. As much as I'd love to say Ferarri F40... it has to be a Murcielago.

http://www.lamboweb.com/images/Cars%20For%20Sale/Black%20Murcielago%202003.jpg

I've always loved Lamborghinis. It was a poster I had of a Countach on my wall as a kid, this one:

http://www.lambocars.com/archive/countach/lp500qv9t.jpg
Had a naked girl on it! Mum and Dad didn't mind so much, they thought I just liked the car :P

Anyways, back on track, the Murcielago is my dream machine. I'd respect one, love it to bits, stare at it for hours, paint it, draw it, build a special house for it, to me it's a beast, a super car, a raging bull, not a prancing horse.

I would thought you would have picked a better car than that :P

OK, I mainly only like Toyota's and Mazda.
Fav Toyota's would be; the Hachi, Supra, Chaser, MR-2 (SW20, and JDM spec hard top ZZW30) and a few old schools.
Mazda, well basically anything rotary. Mainly FC's, FD's and RX-8's.
