Default Favorite cars, with categories

There have been a few threats about favorite car models, but for this one lets come up with what like in certain categories - SUVs, coupes, sports sedans, pickups, family, luxury, etc. I'm a giant fan of cars in general, and like everything from pickups to sports coupes.

I'm not much of retro guy, so most of my selections are current models. Feel free to post pictures if you wish...

I'm using my phone right now so pictures are a pain, I'll just do 3 categories so far.

Overall favorite current model, Bentley Mulsanne, ridiculously beautiful car. Reminds me of a 4 door Brooklands.

My favorite American sportscar (though frankly that's an oxymoron [&:]) Is the new Challenger, I really like the look of it. Today I saw an all white one with tinted windows and black rims, it looked awesome.

My favorite British sports car is the Aston Martin DBS, I think Aston Martins are among the best looking cars ever made - though I kinda like the ones a few years older, some of the newer ones are trying to look kind of like muscle cars, which is an insult to real British sports cars.

1985 Pontiac Firebird




Always wanted to own one, and I would if I lived anywhere else but this crappy city as the car would be destroyed by our streets condition (seriously I've seen backwater country gravel roads that were better)
My brother had to sell his mustang cause it was getting royally damaged cause the combination of potholes, and ridiculously high speed bumps(that are literally everywhere around where I live) were causing it to bottom out left and right no matter how slow you would take them.

Favorite cars? I recently puchased my two dream cars (and have bragged on a few threads already). The ultimate cruising sedan, a 1965 buick riviera, black with factory custom white interior. The other is one of the ultimate classic sports cars, and my personal favorite, the 1963 corvette convertible. With the riviera being black with white interior, I just had to get the vette in white with black interior.

Who needs a retirement fund anyway?

Yeah Foxy the newer Rolls' are awesome, but I'm partial to non-convertible types. And I still think the Mulsanne is sexier [&:]

I like the Phantom Coupe, and it looks great but I prefer the front end design of the Bentley.

A `57 Nomad with a blown big-block, Pro-streeted on the top of my automotive bucket list. Street rods, a Deuce High-boy or `27 T-bucket. Luxury, one of those 550 HP Caddy's.
I'm still trying to get my brother to let me drive his `03 Viper, tweaked just a little with 850 HP at the wheels. That's him and his toy at the Viper HQ, he got the good parking spot there.

The mustang is leaps and bounds better than the challenger (which is actually just a charger/300c/magnum)!

I finally saw a Fiesta ST today at work and I'm pretty much into it. I'm a huge hot hatch fan and this is definitely a hot hatch.
