I've been thinking lately of what I'd purchase if I were lucky enough to hit Powerball....or become an elected official. ;)

TOTD: If money were no object, what car would you purchase? Any time, any brand, any model.

Me? 1967 Shelby GT500. The most beautiful vehicle ever created by man, IMO.

1972 Chevy Chevelle SS convertible or hardtop. Doesn't matter.

Or a Pontiac GTO, any era:

My former CO owned a vintage chevelle, red with white racing stripes. My former Squadron Gunny owned a pristine GTO, all black. Nice choices :D

Porsche Carrera GT.

My brother and his friends all had Goats and Chevy's and Chevelles when they were growing up. Cool cars.

Oh I don't know about that - but I do admit that the cars I like best right now are the throwbacks - The Mustang, the Charger, and the Camero.

Does that model allow you to reach the pedals without the assistance of several blocks of wood tied to your feet?

Also, can a mod resize all the damn pictures? For Christs sake people.

If money were no object, I sure wouldn't be spending it on a car.

That's b/c you're a gurl. That and it'd be your hubby's job to sort the no-object wheels. :D

I'm down with the classic GTO, but that Mustang looks pretty good too.
