You are in the Classic Cars
What is this discussion about?
#4 of 9 Considering that my tastes in cars are pretty cheap...

I'd probably get jilted on an offer like this! I mean, how much can the nicest '76 LeMans or Mopar R-body be worth?
Seriously though, I think my first pick would be a 1957 DeSoto Adventurer convertible. That would satisfy my Forward Look era Mopar fetish.
Beyond that pick though, my mind just wanders too much to narrow it down properly. I could see myself being happy with something like a '61 Bonneville convertible, and perhaps a '68-69 Dodge Coronet R/T or Plymouth GTX convertible. 440 please, no Hemi, as I'd rather go for the drivability than the brute power.
But yeah, if money were no object, I'd have a LOT more than three vehicles! Heck, even with money BEING an object, I have more than three vehicles!

Now that I think of it, I could be the same way....I'd be very happy to have a pristine highline fintail and a concours W126. Neither of those are really bank-breakers either, although still pricier than the 70s iron.
If I had numerous cars, I really think I would like to have mint examples of every fintail and W126 variant, and maybe branch it out to coupes and open cars, along with period tuned or modified cars. There'd be a handful of people who would appreciate such a collection.

...would include having a place to keep them. The one car I think I would like to have is a 1958 or 1960 Imperial limousine built by Ghia. I'd also like a 1957-58 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham and perhaps a 1957 Chrysler 300-C convertible or hardtop. As an alternate, I'd like the nicest 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham in existance.

Three? If money really is no object, it should be more like 30.
Anyway, let's say a 1990 Skyline GT-R Nismo, a 1992 NSX Type-R, and a brand new Toyota Century for my daily rider.

If money was no object, I would to buy a car for my family and relatives. I think I'll go for Toyota, Chevrolet, and Nissan

Assuming this means three 'classic' cars, I'd buy:
1) A supercharged '64 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk with the half-vinyl "Sports Roof" (like a landau vinyl top) Any color.
2) A 1962 Corvette with hardtop...any engine, any trans, but not white, bright red, black or silver...any color but!
3) A 1965 Pontiac Bonneville two-door hardtop with buckets and console (rarely seen on a Bonneville, but available). I think it's the best domestic instrument panel ever put in a car. Similar to a Grand Prix, but with the fastback roofline. Color: Iris Mist or a dark maroon.
