    Ewww, 8 seris bemmers suck! sorry, had to share my opinion!

    Hummers may well be cheaper because thet brought out a hummer 2, based on a GM 4x4 suv thing. Its huge, but no quite upto the coolness of the original hummer :)

    Nah ;) that pic just doesn't do it any justice at all. There's an 840 Ci that belongs to a bloke up the road from me, lovely car.

    Infact, all 9 BMWs in my street rock, including ours :D

    My dream car would probably be either the Koenigsegg, a Ferrari 360 Stradale, or a TVR Cerbera 4.5 (mashie you lucky bar steward :p).

    Alfa 147 GTA or BMW M3 CSL or Hartge H5.0 (M3 + V8 engine from the M5) would be more practical 'daily drivers' though. I'll Have to settle for a Seicento for now though :(.

    Yep.

    Normally 6.5L V8... too big to justify the fuel bills unless your on a very large wage!

    I think it would have to be an AC/Shelby Cobra

    [​IMG]

    or perhaps a modified '67 Shelby GT500 just like the one from Gone in 60 Seconds.

    I've got 3 dream cars that I can't ever decide between.
    1 - Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII
    2 - Nissan Skyline R34 GTR
    3 - Toyota Supra TT

    If I was MADE to chosse between the 3, I would most likely go with the Skyline though. :D:rock:

    The original Hummer was made by American General (AMG) and that's ALL they made. A year or two ago General Motors bought out AMG and GM is now making 2 versions of the Hummer - the original (6.5L V8 Turbo Diesel) is sold strictly to the military and the H2 (6.0l V8 MFI on a Yukon undercarrage I believe) is the civilian version.

    personally, i'd go for a Hamann Tuned HM5/450....
    [​IMG]
    nothing like having 6.1L of V12 power under the bonnet.... though I'd have to do the trick thing with the doors like I did on my m3....


    just wish they did them as a convertible....

    I'm disappointed with the lack of modding involved on your dream cars here lads :p

    Anyhoo, I've always had a soft spot for the Jensen S-V8 since I saw it unveiled at the Birmingham Motor show a few years back.

    My main 2 dream vehicles would be a Ford/Chevy/Dodge hot rod pick-up and a 1934 Ford Hot Rod:

    They'd have to be flamed too. It just ain't a rod without flames :hip: :rock:

    I remember hearing somewhere that they do around 1 MPG on rough terrain.

    Scary. :eyebrow:
