If I ever become financially secure I have plans to build one of these. Its a Factory Five Racing MK4 kit. Even if I could find (or afford) a real Shelby 427 Cobra I wouldn't want to drive it. They ee one of the most beautifull cars ever built.

You can buy the kit for about $15,000-$20,000. Then you need the engine, tranny and rear end with brakes, paint, tires wheels and lots of time! You could probably have one complete up and running for $30,000-$45,000. The one I'd like to build will cost considerably more!

We have very similar taste. The 911 GT2RS is on my short list of dream cars. As well as a 458 Italia. The Scuderia was on on that list until I saw the 458! My ultimate dream garage contains the shelby Cobra replica posted above, A real Shelby 427 Cobra (to look at and drive 5 miles a year!), A 911 GT2RS, and a 458 Italia and maybe a Audi TTRS APR stage 3.

As far as cars that could be within my reach, I'd pick the the new CLS class from Mercedes-Benz or maybe an Audi A8.

As far as pipe dreams, Bentley Continental GT.

Completely restored VW double cab truck. I don't want anything extremely expensive, or fast... just something I could drive every day.

Really want the 1st though at one point I even found suppliers for the parts to make it look completely like that too. Too bad the city I live in is hard on sports cars with all the speed bumps, and pot holes

It's hard to choose but I'd be torn between a Maserati Granturismo and a BMW M6 modified by G-Power (the old one with the V10).

The Maserati is all class, good looking, possibly the best sounding car ever but it's pretty disappointing dynamically and not that quick either. The BMW would hit 230mph when tuned up which would be hard to resist. Hmm.
