I was watching a Top 10 cars programme on Discovery today and they put Aston Martin in the second (or was it the third?) position, at which point I made myself a moral promise that I will own that car one day. And uh no - it wasn't the old model that Bond used to drive - it was new and drop dead gorgeous sexy one - perfect blend of modernism and retro, digital and analog. And I can't find a picture of it! It was a convertible, much more streamlined (lower or "shallower") than the DBR9, poison green (what can I say - the color is just as important as the car itself) and I totally fell in love with it. Does anyone know which car I'm talking about because Google isn't helping me too much. In the meantime, post your dream car (don't forget to include pictures*! - I will, too, when I find one). PS - when you post an image or a name, post its specifications as well! edit: hmm - apparently Aston Martin's only producing three major lines (links will include Flash components): The V12 Vanquish S, the DB9 and the V8 Vantage I'm pretty sure it was none of the ones I saw before, but since DB9 is the only convertible, I'll post an image of it (specs available at the clicky above). The DB9 Volante * no screenshots, please [Edited by - Crispy on July 1, 2005 7:54:59 PM]

On wednesday I bought this (almost) exact model:

the Honda Civic LX 5-speed Coupe (Shoreline Mist), 115hp @ 6100rpms, 110lb-ft torque @ 4500rpms. 38mpg on the highway, and I seem to be getting all of it, so far. I got it for $500 under invoice (so about 1,900 under the MSRP, before fees, taxes, tags, etc). This is picture the EX trim level (you can tell because the mirrors are painted). Sweet little car, I love it.

But my dream car... hmm...
I might get one of these whenever I'm up for a new car (5 or 6 years), though I'll probably get a slightly more civilized body style.

The Subaru Impreza WRX STi. Retailing at over 30K, with about 300hp.


if money were no object:

The Porsche 911 Turbo GT2, at about 477hp it retails for more than a quarter million dollars.

I fell in love as a child with those babies, and will quest to get one. Reliant Robin....either that or a Reliant Regal Van (think "Del Boy")

Edit: This isn't a joke either.
