I have a long list, but there are three at the top. Either a Shanghai SH760, a HongQi CA770, or a Hino Contessa 1300 :)

I can also dream about the Volga V12, but sadly it never went into production :(

Before, my dream car was a 1966 Volkswagen, but as I bought one 8 years ago it is no longer a dream ;)

I'd also want a Porche 911, so I could ultimately be like Bill Gates & blow up the engine! :p

1993 Ford Explorer Sport all Hot Rodded Up, one of the best light trucks Ford ever made in my opinion (as long as you pick a 5-speed instead of the Automatic transmission, the A4LD was crap)

This'd be nice for that Seattle Traffic at 8 a.m.

Or just bypass em' all for this.....who needs a car when you have a Transporter, and who needs time when you can just emulate the time you want to be in using the Holideck!

Well, if you remember to put oil in, unlike Bill, you'll be fine! I also like the HongQi CA770, and also the early Gaz Volga cars.

Nice line ups everyone, especially mike and the monster truck and enterprise..lol

The 4 speed isn't bad Mike..
I only have to get it rebuilt every 75,000 miles..hehe
Can't tear up those 4.0L engines though, and trust me, i've tried..lol


Also, for us Gremlin lovers, there was a 5.0L V8(AMC 304ci) model made, so to heck wit da chebby 250s, AMC 304 for da win!

Screw model NCC-1701, I want model NCC-1701-E!!! (Equipped with a Klingon warrior, a half-Betazoid cousler, a fine-@$$ doctor, a fine-@$$ doctor's son pilot, a blind Engineer, & an android who wishes to be human)

EDIT: The NCC-1701 does look kinda cool though... http://www.mtac.profusehost.net/misc/pics/pwned.jpg

Kirk will get you some "you know what" if you want.
Picard will not.

Picard is my hero, but Kirk is just badazz!

Yeah, I was not talking about the later 95+ model Explorer, I used to hang on the Explorer forum for awhile. The 1991-94 had some auto tranny problems from what I saw. The sticks are great, but they are VERY rare. The rarest Explorer from what I've read is a 1991-1994 XLT "Eddie Bauer" with a stick shift. They exist, but are almost impossible to come by. The usual Explorer 5-speed stick is the 2-Door blacked out trimmed XL sport And yes, the 4.0l is an amazing engine from my experience as well. I'm the only person I know who still has their first car. My Tranny was just rebuilt about 17,000 miles ago, to the tune of $2500. Before that, it only got a new clutch once before, at 100,000 miles.

As far as the enterprise goes, I'm not much of a trekkie so I know little of the differences between the different enterprise. The first time I really paid attention to the series was about 2 years ago, when mom got the whole Next Generation tv series on DVD.
