Cars I would have if I had money

I'm not talking millions upon millions, but you know, well off.
Range Rover Sport 3.6 TDV8.
Citroen C6 3.0 petrol in black. I just love the look of the C6.
Subaru Impreza 2.2 litre petrol 2 door coupe.
1970's E type Jag. 5.3 V12.
Any old type Bentley.

Anyone else care to mention theirs?

Blue 2 Litre Diesel Ghia ,2005, Front and rear parking sensors,fridge, sony 6 cd player, Full cream leather interior.Favourite of all-sunroof for those hot British summers

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!

Ordered 30.07, built 05.09.11, delivered 06/10/11, C-Max Titanium 1.6 TDCi 115, blazer blue, First Edition and Easy Driver packs, alarm, cruise, navigation, daytime running lights, spacesaver spare

I'll join you with the RR but perhaps the Overfinch version and
then the 5.3 E Type
911 (with the rear "tea Tray")
Chevvy Corvette or Camaro (the early ones)
Ford Mustang (ala Bullett)
Shelby Cobra

Ford Mustang definitely. The sound of a V8 burble is tremendous.
I love Audi's also. My brother has the A6 sline 3 litre quattro. Lovely to drive.

Anything I would get would have to be British, sporty, relatively easy to fix and best of all FUN! It would also have to be roomy enough to accommodate my ample arse and ageing frame, so small is out. (Sorry Lotus although I LOVE the Elan!) I quite fancy a Reliant Scimitar 3.0 V6, probably SE6 A or B. One of the later Middlebridge ones would do although they had the later "Cologne" engine in place of the "Essex". A Gilbern Invader or TVR would also fill the bill, but if I was going for Comfort it would have to be the Rover P5B Coupe or the P6 3500S Wicked!

That "Little" engine that Buick originally sold to Rover because it was too "small" has to be the best buy anyone ever made. It was an absolute masterpiece in its day. Such a shame that British Leyland didn't use it in more cars. The MGB V8 was only made because someone else was modifying "B"s with V8s, but even then they still didn't get it right and put in the de-tuned Land Rover version! The V8 was actually lighter than the 1.8 "B" Series lump so the car should have handled better if they'd modded the suspension settings. And then we wonder why we haven't got a proper car industry any more! And then there's the debacle of the TR8! I could go on!! AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!
