    Dream car or Bike... post it because sometimes it’s nice to dream.

    I love so many cars it’s hard to nail it down to just one. But.... a 1968 Mercury Cougar GTE in green. Extremely rare.

    Those old Cougars are beautiful! Haven't seen one around in a while. I hope that's cuz folks that have them are keeping them garaged when possible so they'll be with us longer.

    Without overthinking it, my first answer would be Aston Martin DB2/4. It's been my dream car since I was a teenager. A few years ago I saw on in person, and it was beautiful. They're actually bigger and longer than I was expecting.

    I'm a car guy. Don't care what year, what model, what make it is, I like cars.

    Some folks build one themselves, some job it out. Others buy a restored dream, and some buy a new generation offering.

    When someone is by their ride with a smile, the dream is real. That's all that matters.

    This is my smile every mile.

    A road trip anywhere is a smile, whether it's around the block, or heading to the Rockies.

    My brother's father-in-law has a beautiful 1964 Cobra. He used to race it, but retired it after a pretty bad crash. Oddly enough, both my brother and I got to ride in it when we were little kids, years before we met his daughter, who is now my brother's wife. A sale's guy at his company had some business with my dad, and brought the Cobra over to our house and gave us each a ride. And he didn't hold back. We lived on the outskirts of town, so he took us back on some country roads and tore it up.

    I owned a 2013 Miata Club and it was my favorite car to drive hard that I have ever owned. Unfortunately for me, at 6'4" it was not really cut out to be an only car for me. One day I will have another though, it was that good!

    Yeah, fits like the cockpit in a jet fighter! Six forward manual speeds, power-retractable hardtop, bought new in 2009.
