The question was asked: If you could have any car ever made for Christmas, what would it be? Why?

A bunch of you answered, and here are several of those:

Brian E.

“Just one? It would have to be an early Camaro Z/28 with a Muncie 4 speed. Why? It is my unicorn car. I actually have bought one once, and the guy took my money and ran. It wasn’t even his car! I have been a day late or a dollar short at least 4 other times. It is very frustrating!”

“A black Chevelle SS with white stripes and a cowl induction hood. It would also have an M-22 four-speed transmission and 3.73 gears in its 12-bolt posi rear.”

Chris C.

“A first-gen Mustang, so I could give it to my grandmother for Christmas. She had one but had to sell it, and she tells me all the time she wishes she never got rid of it.”

“A ’64 Thunderbolt. I’m a diehard Chevy guy but a Ford Thunderbolt takes the cake.”

1967 Mercury Comet 202 R code because I love those overlooked sleepers. A 427 4-speed with a 3.90 rear end and plain interior and steel wheels.”

“A ’73 Chevelle SS 454 4 speed. I had a ’73 Chevelle and I miss it like crazy. It’s something you don’t see all the time.”
