Does our fantasy car have to be one actually sold in our country of residence?
Ohhhhhhh. Where shall I send my first, second, and third born children?
No…but you might want to pick one you can legally drive in your country of residence.
Why are you trying to kill such a sweet deal?
Good, cause I don’t even have a first born. I’m just sayin’, I’d be willing to pay a pretty high price for such a sweet deal.
2013 Toyota Tundra crew cab
I guess a 2015 Tundra but when I pay off a car I like to take a few years and put the amount of my payment into a money market account. Realistically it will probably be a 2022 crew cab pickup.
Currently own a 2016 Subaru WRX
Would love to have the Subaru WRX STI, which has more horsepower.
What do you consider a fantasy vehicle? I wouldn’t mind having a Nissan Gtr, those are Twin-Turbo V6 AWD, they are pretty expensive but not like out of this world super car prices.
You’ll be wanting to sell off those future kids for gas money, btw.
Yes, and repairs to that car. IT WILL BE WORTH IT.
Fantasy = Non-Production, custom, movie prop etc. Something off the assembly line…no matter how expensive it turns out to be.
Okay, well, I have a Subaru hatchback and a big Dodge truck. I’d love to trade them both for a small diesel pickup truck, something like a Toyota Hilux. It would of course be illegal as far as the feds are concerned, but my state’ll give a set of plates to pretty much anything so if you’re arranging this little deal I’ll take my chances!
1996 Honda Accord LX
I’d love to have a 5 series wagon or a v6 Accord coupe.
- 2011 Prius IV
- 2016 Mazda CX-5, most likely
For you Portlanders, the Prius will be going up for sale later this year.
1989 Cadillac DeVille, 1974 Super Beetle, 1990 F-150 truck, a kit car (1960 Beetle that has been converted to look like a 1929 Mercedes), Dodge Caravan, 2003 Mazda Protege. My co-workers occasionally make fun of me by looking out into the parking lot to see which one I drove in that day.
I’m really not excited about any current production cars. Most of the cars I have been looking at lately are pre-1960.
2015 Subaru Impreza Hatchback - Deep Sea Blue. He’s had some hiccoughs but is back in my good graces.
2016 Toyota Sequoia in Sizzling Crimson Mica. Runner-up: 2016 Subaru Crosstrek in Hyper Blue.
Currently: 2005 Toyota Prius
Trade for: (Bending the rules, since it’s no longer in production) 1998 Porsche 911/993 Coupé. I miss my 911SC.
Currently: 2012 Hyundai Sonata
Next: I’d love a Honda Odyssey - I really like minivans. Unfortunately, the spousal unit hates them, so we’ll probably end up with another Sonata or something similar. If his opinion doesn’t count, then definitely the Odyssey.
2002 Ford Escort (though I don’t drive it very much, I usually drive my mother’s 2007 Hyundai Elantra)
Does Rolls Royce Silver Ghost count as “current production-line only”? Rolls Royce still exists.
I have not owned a car since 1988. My last one was a 1979 Chevrolet Chevette that I bought new. When I learned I was being sent to Thailand, I sold it in 1988 for $70, and the only reason I got that much for it was because it had new tires.
We’ll be moving to Hawaii soon and plan to rely on public transport and get back into bicycling, so probably no car. I enjoy being free of the expense of keeping an automobile.
