For me, I think it would be a 65 R Model.  But the new Ford GT would also suffice in lieu thereof.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Man, that's a tough question.  Well, I can definitely say that I'm more of a classic car guy than a new car guy, as I've owned 2 newer Shelbys and sold both not long after purchase - they just don't have the soul of a classic to me.  8)

It has to be a Shelby - for sure.  I'm going to say either a street or R model version of a 1965 GT350.  I lean more toward the R Model; however, the carryovers still reign supreme for me. 

Yes, I'm biased  ;).
Nothing beats a classic!

Late production CSX2300-2500 Cobra
Owned since 1971, driven over 238,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

CSX 2544, or a similar CSX that is in driver condition, a car that you never have to worry about not making people happy by not doing a concourse restoration on. Get in, turn the key and drive whenever you like, never worrying about a stone chip  ;) In another year, I just may be in the market for such a car.

I need something that I can get roof racks on to carry my ladders and my Greyhound likes to go for long rides so it needs a back seat where she can stand up. I need a gps since I get lost all of the time. Something that can go off road so I can go around the traffic and get somewhere today...not tomorrow. Any suggestions? I'm thinking a Mini pickups ort of thing? Supercharged of course.

But it has no back seat and you can't put roof racks on it? I can't even get a shotgun in it. I need to use one of those sawed offs? Why?

With no other qualifiers (unlimited budget), that's an easy one for me - an original GT-40. (And it doesn't even have to be the LeMans winning one!) ~Kevin
