Dream Machine

Just wondering what everyone would be driving if they were not driving their current vehicle?

I have always loved Mercedes.
I prefer 2 door coupes.
Hatchbacks are where it's at!

It was down to RSX and C230K.

Obviously I'm posting in the Benzforum - end of story.

C230K

I'll predict by 2010: my first Ferrari...

Until then GO BENZ!

Would get the 350Z , because I owned the orginial 1970 240Z, great car. THe 350Z is nice but would not trade for my Coupe.

2001 or 2002 VW GLX VR6 5 Speed with sports suspension

I tried for 9 months to get one the way I wanted and one evening in November of 2001 I saw an ad for the C230 Coupe and was amazed by the price. The next weekend I drove and then ordered one, 3 months later I took delivery of my first Benz. The Benz of my dreams, a mid 70s to 1980 450 SEL....someday.

At the time of my purchase the alternative was the IS300, now it would be the 350z.

Money no object? I'd probably go for an Aston Martin Vanquish. Elegant and refined yet a totally rude beast as well. Also gives me a chance to be patriotic and buy English!!
