In no particular order.  Jaguar D Type, Mercedes 300 SL or a '64 Shelby Cobra 289.

not playing fair.

"one other car" means one, not three. you pick three, next guy picks seven, I come back with eleven "one other car" picks, ad nauseum....

having to narrow it down to just one is what makes it hard.

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.
.    Toyota fj45 wagon (with a portable gps unit)

1987 C4 Corvette with the B2K* option

* for those not versed in Bow Tie minutiae, this was the factory twin turbo option Chevrolet developed with Callaway engineering.

I would love to have an original GT-40 or the prewar Banger Hotrod I have now!
I love that roadster!  32 Ford?
Thanks, its an original old rust bucket 1931! not the fastest, but a lot of fun to drive and a little scary at 70mph!

If you're like me and have had a particular Shelby for a long time, you know all the idiosyncrasies of that particular car. Maybe you have seen, driven, ridden, or just lusted after an other car. But you haven't actually lived with that car. It's the question of the devil you know vs. the one you don't. (replace devil with woman, if you don't believe in devils)

What I would like is to have the resources to keep my KR convertible in excellent condition AND be able to drive it everywhere without any concerns.

^^^ Yes. I've been watching this thread, but am frequently subject to "paralysis by analysis" and can't quite wrap my head around all of the possible parameters and consequences?

I love my Tiger and have always said that a real Cobra and GT40 are dream cars.
However, in this case, based on pure enjoyment... I'm gonna agree with Rocket and say Grumpy's old '66 Convertible  8) - i think that blue is iconic.

71 scj convertible. Why: 1) my first car was a brand new 71 mustang, and 2) I never could have afforded a convertible, let alone one that can perform like a modern day high performance car...in a 48 year old package.

Bang on. Still runs like a dream (mind you it is -25 today, so it will be a few months until it sees the sun again).
