Default What is your realistic Dream Car?

If practicallity, money (to a certain extent), and availability wasnt an issue what would be sitting in your driveway? No SuperCars, or the like

I would have a GMC Typhoon, Ford F150 Raptor (with the 6.2 V, Possibly a New Taurus SHO, maybe a 3000gt VR4 (twin turbo v6, awd, all wheel steering) 1997 40th Anniversary SSEi, and ******...hehehe
O Stealth here r some pics of what u will get in trade

I'm torn between 2 Hennesy offerings. The Hennesy V700 version of the 2011 Cadillac CTS.
http://www.hennesseyperformance.com/v700.html

And a more primal yet outrageously powered 2011 Camaro LSX/HPE1000. The 1000 stands for an honest 1000+ HP and Lbs/Trq. Move over old RS/SS'* of a different age. Camaro'* been shot full of boost steroids like never before.

A 1988 Fiero GT with a Turbo charged 3900 and a 6spd. Basically a G6 GT drivetrain with a turbo.

I WOULD LOVE A MOTOR SWAPPED FIERO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And Venom... Have you seen the Hennessy modded F150 Raptor? they call it the VelociRaptor....
however it only produces about 60 more HP than the stock Raptor but costs an ungodly amount of money.

Yea... i am a GM guy, didnt use to be. I was raised a Ford Man. But they are doing some interesting things with their trucks this year and last. Between the introduction of the 6.2 V8, and the Twin Turbo V6 from the SHO stuck into the trucks now. I am interested once again.
Dont worry, i wont change back to a Ford guy but I am Curious about this TT V6.... they say it is a good motor for to use for towing.

Hey, I myself chose RAM 17 years ago. And as it goes along, I won't be trading Cummins for Duramax anytime soon. It still snaps to in 0 degree weather and purr'* like a kitten. I'll be passing the 200k mark this coming summer.
