    If I could have any car I'd pick a Mini Cooper (turbo, of course :cool:) or maybe a Mazda 3. Not in the market for a new car, just dreaming. What are you lusting after?

    My dream car has been a 1969 Chevy Nova ever since I was 16 and my 19 y/o neighbor had one in orange-red.

    Soon as our addition is final, it's on my list.

    I actually LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Dodge Journey.
    I really like the GMC Acadia, too.

    Anything with AC. I've never had a car with AC and have always lived in very hot climates. When I grow up, I want a car with AC. :)

    I have my dream car! Well, I have my sensible dream car, a Civic.

    My wildest fantasy dream car is James Bond's 1963 Aston Martin DB5. Swoon.

    I rarely drive anywhere besides work which isn't far from home, so my dream car is for sure an electric car. Not those that are about the size of my big toe, though. :)

    I don't really think about cars that much, but I wouldn't mind having a Cadillac. Mom had one my whole life up until her most recent. She bought a Dodge. She always says, " I love my car, but it's not a Cadillac."

    I wouldn't mind a new F-150 either. I love mine.

    I saw a lavender Volvo in the parking lot at Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago. I think I would look very cute driving that!

    I just got a Jeep Compass last weekend. I don't know if it's my dream car, but I really like it.

    Dream car that's practical for my life:

    Honda Odyssey with a wheelchair ramp and brackets for said chair.

    Dream car throwing practicality to the wind:
    64-1/2 Ford Mustang. Red with a black ragtop.

    I'd love a Range Rover- if I didn't have to pay for gas either.

    Right now, it's a 2010 Toyota Sienna, 8 passenger. Total soccer mom here.

    Wistful dreaming? Not sure. I love jacked up 4x4 trucks with 4 doors, but I'd love to have a smaller vehicle that was fun to drive and got excellent gas mileage.

    Actually I am really blessed to have bought my first/dream car a couple of months ago (Lexus IS250). I am pretty pleased! :)

    My husband has a Volt and LOVES it! I do get tired of hearing about mileage, though!
