christmas wishlist


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 a 1969 Camaro Z28 with the DZ302 and a Muncie 4 speed. Hugger orange with white stripes. 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 cranberry red 1970 LS-6 Chevelle SS-454 with black 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. This picture is a representation of my dream car found on the internet.”

“A 1964 1/2 Mustang, peppermint green with a white soft top 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.”
