    It's impossible to choose just one.

    #29 What is this?

    • Hanx

      Dartz Prombom

    • thor

      BAT. bad ass truck

    • Homer

      It's a silver Canyonero. It was originally red in the Simpsons which is why you didn't recognize it.

    • Pete

      It is a Russian armored Truck: http://www.armoringgroup.org/

    • Baxpin

      The illegitimate lovechild of a 3-way between a hummer, a honda ridgeline, and a stealth bomber.

  • Bonnie

    #7 Sagaris with the LS7 engine please

  • http://www.facebook.com/zack.mcnew Zachary McNew

    #15 is absolutely gorgeous. Not the color I would pick, but definitely my favorite.

    • Kyle429

      Mine too. Agreed about the color, though. I would've gone with red or a darker blue. I love Jeep JKs.

  • Liong

    <img src="http://www.goldstoressite.com/shop/listz/ns.jpg"&gt; #3 #11 #30 #46 The misty scene had a dreamy quality about it. <img src="http://www.goldstoressite.com/shop/listz/sn2.jpg"&gt;

    • Si1entStatic

      not liking the lambo in #3… it's starting to take the shape of the Zonda and Konsignegggeggegeggee (top Gear spelling) also kinda looks like the Ferrari Italia 458…

      The engine compartment slope is soo not Lambo style.

  • macklemoreisawesome

    many beast cars arround here, but #16 is my favourite BY FAR ^^

    • Jimbo

      Such a classic.

      • Airplane

        That's a modern retake on the E-type not an actual E-type

        • JetSet

          Yep, the Eagle e-Type and it's CRAZY expensive (like $500K)

  • Shlon

    Anyone selling one of these for 200 bucks to the poor folk? Kindly contact me at your soonest convenience, if so. Thank you and have a great day. 😛

  • Frits

    #41 That just looks like so much fun

    • https://www.facebook.com/christopherscharff13 Chris Scharff

      Hyundai Genesis AND Red Bull. This one takes it for me as well. I love that car.

  • Hanx

    I'm in the mood for a cabriolet. So, either the Alfa or the Eagle.

  • r151

    #6 simple. classic. muscle.

    • gma

      What is it? A dodge..what?

      • Radam3

        Charger

    • JetSet

      Are these really 'dream cars'? Mass produced and highly available and worth about the same as a new Honda Odyssey minivan.

      Some of these cars on here are insanely rare and valuable (F40, Agera, '67 Tipo Stradale, original GT40 Mk1). THOSE are dream cars.

      • amp

        when was the last time you saw one of these on a dealer lot, douche?

        • JetSet

          Yes, it's very common to see cars from the late 60's sitting on dealer lots…in 2012.

          Dumbass – that's not the way the vintage/historic car market works. This WAS a mass produced car – not the same as many to the ultra rare cars in some of the other photos.

          Now, back to your regularly scheduled day of being a dipshit.

  • Dev

    I'll take number 47 thank you chive.

  • Stan lee

    #22. Nuff said

  • sideshow bob

  • The Bandit

    #6…classic! Great ride…
    #23 #30 #42 would be my choices though…

  • Jawbone

    #34 Victoria Peak in Hong Kong at night is incredible. That had to be a fun drive getting that thing up there.

  • bones

    #17 Holy shit

    • Dzodzo

      Holden Efijy Concept

    nice car, nice car, great car, nice car, #16 i love you and i wanna marry you, nice car, nice car, ..

  • http://www.facebook.com/colin.sorensen.5 Colin Sorensen

    #34 such a nice car!

  • Lojack

    #24 – typical Chive dorks.

    • Saskanuck

      Yes, we may be typical Chive dorks, however we are typical Chive dorks that just made it on to theChive! KCCO

      • JetSet

        And you are excited by that?

        Yippee – that probably makes you top dawg in your Dungeons and Dragons club!

        'KCCO' – very original. Do you guys have a button that you press that automatically types that.

        Bobby McFerrin beat you guys to the punch about 25 years ago with the same dopey sentiment.

        • Saskanuck

          Damn straight it does.

          In all seriousness though, yes I am excited about it and I am deeply sorry that my excitement offends you so much that you had to take precious time out of your day to insult me on the internet.

          • JetSet

            Nah, I'm not offended. Not at all.

            And it doesn't take more than about 10 seconds to type a reply saying how you, and 99% of the Bill Murray shirt wearing 'KCCO' robots are video game/D&D dorks.

      • awhitenike

        Im from Saskatoon too! Wasnt there this weekend though… couldnt make it for cruise weekend.

  • Chim Richels

    Once I saw this thread, I knew there would be your typical muscle car worshipping dipshits going batty one $30K in a field of cars worth $1M.

    • Ethix_

      You missed the point. Again. I would like a Koenigsegg rather than a muscle car, but I understand why others would like the muscle cars. Muscle cars remind people of simpler times, when their dads would teach them about cars or when they were in high school and they were one of the kids with the sweet ride. Some people feel like muscle cars provide a more raw driving experience. There is less technology to interfere with the driver/car connection. Take it easy man, it's not all about the money.

      • Chim Richels

        Sorry, but for 'dream cars' it should be about the money – and the rarity and exclusivity.

        Many of these muscle cars that everyone blows their load over were mass produced and are highly available. Hell, every damn suburban cruise night in every city has 8 bajillion of these things and they carry the same price tag as a Ford Explorer.

        To me, a dream car is one that is rare, insanely valuable and highly exclusive.

        As for the 'cars they grew up with' – well, most of the Chive guys are like 21 year old college students so the 'in high school' car was like 3 years ago and the kids drove mom's Camry.

        • Patches

          So by your definition your dream girl is the one who costs you the most money to fuck? Your dream vacation is the place that is most expensive to get to?
          If someone came to you and said there was a bare concrete room in an office building basement in Cleveland that it would cost you 8 billion dollars just to get into, that would be your absolute dream place – because it's expensive and exclusive and that's all that matters, right?

          • Chim Richels

            Feel free to offer a post that isn't stupid.

            We are talking about CARS. The exclusivity and provenance MATTER. They matter when assessing value and importance.

            But you like analogies. I know this is The Chive and most of you have never seen a real girl, but play along.

            Saying a lame mass produced muscle car that's worth about as much as a Camry is a 'dream car' is like saying that your 'dream fuck' is the chubby chick who works at the movie theater.

            Saying a '67 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale (one of only 18 made and invaluable) is like saying your 'dream fuck' is early 90's Cindy Crawford scissoring Minka Kelly while Jessica Alba and Kate Upton finger bag themselves to a Katy Perry video.

            • BTI

              Your argument is invalid http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2012/autos/1205/ga
              5.5m

              • Chim Richels

                And your argument is insanely uninformed.

                Shelby's cars? The Cobra is a BRITISH car (AC Cobra) that Shelby modified with an American power plant.

                The Gt40 – everything about that car is BRITISH. Educated yourself. They made around 100 of them (with a handful being converted for street).

                Yes, the Shelby cars are amazing, but trying to compare these VERY limited production cars with RIDICULOUS history and provenance to dopey mass produced muscle cars (about 1M Chargers produced between 67-74) is insanely uninformed.

                Get back to me when you know cars.

                • BTI

                  I must be confused I thought you were looking for very limited production.
                  "To me, a dream car is one that is rare, insanely valuable and highly exclusive."
                  The alfa you exampled earlier?

                • BTI
                • BTI

                  "Sorry, but for 'dream cars' it should be about the money – and the rarity and exclusivity."
                  So tell me how the cuda doesn't fit into your dream car definition I pasted above. I think you may be generalizing a little too much.

            • Jay

              I'm not going to criticize your tastes. But they are _your_ tastes. Using your criteria of price, exclusivity, and provenance, alcohols are an excellent luxury good for comparison. Say you want one of those bottles of champagne dug up from that shipwreck in the gulf of Finland, which are the most expensive bottles of champagne in the world. Rarity/exclusivity, check, price, check, provenance, they were on their way to be delivered to royalty about a century ago, so check. Now clearly if you're willing to shell out the cash for these, you like your champagne. Elsewhere in the world there's also a cognac of similar vintage (barrel aged for 100+ years), and even more expensive (by about a million) than the champagne. Cool. But does that mean you want the cognac too? No. None of those qualities change the fact that you're a champagne guy who doesn't enjoy cognac. Look, your dream car is just that. Yours. Who are we to criticize taste, in cars or alcohol. This is frat-demographic image website, not a prestigious auction house, so leave the price squabbling to the pros.

        • http://www.facebook.com/brad.irwin.921 Brad Irwin

          For me a dream car has nothing to do with price or exclusivity. I like to work on my cars, fiddle with them, see how much timing they can take, dial in my jetting, change my own oil. So my dream car wouldn't be anything like yours. I like the simplicity of older cars they are more mechanical and I relate to that.

          • Chim Richels

            I enjoy older cars too – as most of my comments have been around the glorious VINTAGE cars on many of these threads. My issue is that people piddle themselves over these hideous overweight boats ('muscle cars') that handle like (and frankly look like) over bloated shit.

  • JetSet

    #27 – complete no brainer. The second car from the left in the front row (with the guy leaning on it) is one of the most rare and desirable cars ever made and regarded as one of, if not THE most beautiful sports car ever penned – the '67 Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale.

    It's value is off the charts. THAT is a dream car.

    • gilles

      I'll have one of those F50's please 😉

      • JetSet

        Or the F40s, or even the red Daytona in the paddock.

        But I still take the Tipo 33 Stradale (or even the race spec Tipo 33/2 next to it). They only made 18 and 5 are still owned by Alfa. They never change hands so hard to assess the value, but many put it north of $10M. That's $10 MILLION DOLLARS. THAT is a dream car, not some lame ass mass produced 'muscle car' barge that's worth about as much as a new Honda Accord.

        • Misfit7734

          4th row second from left F50GT1 1 OF 3. To go please.

          • JetSet

            Good choice and good catch. That car produced 725HP – at 10,500 RPM – that's frickin' bonkers.

            Not sure of the value since there are only 3, but it's probably diluted because even though it's a one of three, it's an F50. I'm still going with the Tipo33 as the most valuable car in that pic!

  • JetSet

    #43 – is Norb Bries' Morgan r spec car. Norb is the owner of Northshore Sportscars – one the largest Morgan dealers in the US – and is a great guy. I've had the pleasure of being on the track trying to hang with Norb and that car. The exhaust note is INSANE!!

    That pic was taken in downtown Elkhart Lake, WI a few weeks ago for the 'Friday Night Vintage Race Car Concours' after the vintage races during the Brian Redman Week at Road America. Amazing stuff!

    • Toxic

      Was there for the Saturday races, amazing machinery and track. Highly recommended weekend for any gearhead.

      • JetSet

        Me too. I've tracked Road America a number of times, but that weekend is just amazing. Did the touring lap at lunch. Fun, but not as fun as Friday. There were 3x the cars on Saturday versus Friday so hard to get any real speed up.

        The evenings in Elkhart are the best. Tons of people, great cars, hot girls and just a beautiful summer night getting drunk and dancing to bands (although it wound up raining around 10pm).

        Norb also had the 'mule' car Morgan Three Wheeler there. That thing is bonkers! Had it parked right by the stairs to going down to the beach on that street between the Osthoff and Siebkens.

  • shwan

    #7 for the simple fact that they are not allowed in the U.S.
