    I would have to say The Jaguar i’ve been searching on a long time hard to come across the right one if anybody knows if there’s any of these vehicles available I would be very interested in purchasing one.

    Hard to beat the cobra. Growing up in the 16 in 1980 you could get the jags for around. 1500 all day. Always. Liked body. Plus they had 12 cyld. I have always thought prettiest car ever built but that’s pretty bad ass would b the cobra

    Unfair question. I owned an A-H 3000 for almost 20 years. Loved it. ‘Vette is awesome, of course, but make mine a ’63 fuelie coupe or ’67 big block roadster. Love the purity of the 289 Cobras but still want a 427. Porsche is sweet but I’ll wait for the 911. So when all is said and done, it has to be the E-Type, my must-own-someday dream car since the first time I saw one when I was a kid.

    The Jag because it was a 150mph car in 1961, had 4 wheel disc brakes before any of the others had disc brakes at all, and Jagwas running dohc engines back when ford still had flatheads and chev was 7 yrs away from its first V8. Clearly much more car, and sexy too.

    The Vette. Because it would go well with the bow tie tattoo on my left arm.

    All such iconic roadsters. Each, in its own way defined a certain type of driving. For me not able to have them all…in this group I will take the Vette. That is a classic colour combo. But jeez the Healey 3000 is wonderful too.

    The ’67 Jag, it’s a classy looking car and it looks aerodynamic.

    I would say the Austin Healey. My uncle had one as his first car. BTW, Austin, 007 never had an Austin Healey. The Sean Connery generation 007 had a Aston Martin DB4GT.

    I’d totally take the Speedster. There’s just something about the evolution of a Porsche that stirs up the soul of a sports car.

    I love them al but if I could only have one I would have to pick the 1965 Chevrolet Corvette. Because I am a chevy lover I own a 1980 Chevrolet Malibu and I love my car I’ve owned it since I got out of high school . so yes the 1965 Chevrolet Corvette is my Pick of car

    It’s tough. But I think it would be the Porsche, followed on it’s taillights by the Corvette, then the Cobra, then Jag and Austin. I can’t depend on British cars as much charm as both of them have and I have always loved the XKE. The Cobra would be a blast but too much of one and way too much power and mpg for me. The Corvette is pretty sweet. Gimmie a 327 and 4 speed and be done with it. But the Porsche, so classic German, a real sports car. Besides James Dean drove one to the ‘edge’ and unfortunately over.

    1955 Porsche 356, I just love the lines, she’s not the fastest or even the most agile but she just has class , the kind they don’t build anymore. Of coarse all my friends would say she matches my personality too.

    Shelby Cobra hands down. Because it’s a SHELBY COBRA. Flawless design, curves like a woman, hugs the road. Perfect. So fast you feel like you are flying.
