Well, here's my ten-cents worth...
I've always wanted a car as old as me, so I'd maybe start with a 1953 Bentley.
Then, when I was a kid, my uncle had a couple of Chevy Impalas, and I had the dinky (or was it corgi?) Chevy El Camino, and was always fascinated by their outrageous tail fins, so I'd have to have one of each, 1960 for the El Camino and 1961 for the Impala, thanks.
Next up, the car I passed my test in, a 1964 Ford Classic Capri. But my memories are that it was seriously underpowered so my dream would be to have a V8 shoe-horned under the bonnet, and the running gear upgraded to cope.
I've always loved mark 2 Jaguars, but I'm not sure I could fit in one these days, so I'll pass on that.
After that, there aren't that many cars that I truly lust over, so I would have to go with one car to do the shopping in (and the C-Max is just fine, maybe with the 2 litre auto instead of the 1.6 manual I have now) and then one car to impress the neighbours, maybe an Audi A8 or Bentley Continental.
Did I say 10 cents? Maybe a bit more!
