My dream car is the Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce.
I am from Australia and a used one costs $800k+
A more realistic dream car for me would be the Audi R8 or Nissan R35
1975 HJ Kingswood wagon in metallic poo brown with optional rust
if money isn't an option
993 Series Porsche 911 Turbo.
Last of the air cooled 911's and only increasing in value.
Watashi wa metabo oyagi desu.
Zen are you familiar with the chev LS3 Porsche motor swaps
About 520 HP...of evil.
I am Udo.
The bloke on Hoovies garage did one then blew it up on the track I believe.
If it was for sale....
I would take delight at school pickup turning up in it.
Tesla Model X or the latest Kluger.

velocityjohnno describes perfectly~tbb's Metallic Bronze 1975 Kingswood Wagon.https://www.flickr.com/photos/aussiefordadverts/9519461535/in/photostream/https://www.flickr.com/photos/aussiefordadverts/9519448099/in/photostream/
V8 Twin exhaust...Drop the tailgate for XLong tray back > great tradie's car.
Long roof carted Plasterboard/2 storey trestles/ladders/6 planks/4 long stools
Inside'closed '6ft' trestles/Dry'board /full cornice lengths out window/bags/tools!
Toy ute sissies cried when it rained...'Please can our icky stuff go in yer Wagon!'
Wagon allowed you to work outta town on rainy days.(Impossible with Utes)
tbb fitted rear with a 2 stage velcro Trays for easy hose down...worked a treat!
Best with auto tail gate + also clear & flush the tail gate valves to ward off rust.
Exactly that colour tbb. I have very pedestrian taste in cars.
Now the Kingswood, this was the 90's and V8's were 4 grand so out of reach, $500 to $1500 would get you a 202. It remains a smoother motor than the 3.8 V6s that the Commodore wagons used much later, and the old Traumatic gearbox had its appeal too. You can pull out a fuse, smash the glass, then take the metal end and use this to pin your fuel pump back into place. Genius.
I found the Kingas better off road (remember, only deckies just after season finished could afford a 4x4 Hilux back then. loans weren't really a thing) than the Ford wagons of same age, although the Fords had nicer seats. Always took a large plank of wood in case of being bogged. Bench seat, column shift and sleep in the long space in the back. Someone make a wagon like this today.
Edit: and add vinyl seats and rubber floor mats, doesn't matter if sandy/dirty. You could drive home in a wettie and clean it out with an air blower. No one makes anything like this, apart from maybe a mine-spec base model Troopy these days. Certainly no normal wagons like this.
I'm taking a new Aston Martin DB11 for a spin tomorrow (not mine unfortunately).
Would it be wankerish to post a photo?
Not at all, Zen. Let’s see it.
A photo with your board in the back, wax down on the leather seats would be welcomed.
Probs only get a boogie board in the back but i'll see what i can do.
If there’s no driving gloves and scarf I’ll be very disappointed.
Silk cravat and tweed jacket?
You are in Japan, Zen? Are all the roads perfect and smooth with great winding mountain drives to do? That would be fun.
VJ, mountain roads can be awesome, expressways are really good but super expensive. Local roads- terrible outside of Tokyo.
Hope you have a great drive :)
My experience of the Japanese expressways is being 15 and bussed to see a factory tour in a mini-van; being given a magazine explaining the plant which inexplicably had a playboy centrefold in the middle, so showing this to all the passing motorists on the way home. The truck drivers were all blowing the horn and doing thumbs up in approval.
Coincidentally , the Betoota Advocate did an article on dream cars yesterday, The Aston Martin didn't rate a mention sadly...https://www.betootaadvocate.com/headlines/neighbours-glorious-au-wagon-l...
Zen's dream car..
Ha ha...nice touch with the leggy.
Yeah, couldn't quite get the board in like you asked.
Went for a spin in the hills, had a blast. Came back and jumped into my wifes A1. Bit of a let down to say the least.
Btw, Craig, many thanks for putting that up for me. I don't know how to post pics from my phone.
That looks incredible, Zen.
I bought a car yesterday. Just a ride to get me to the adult theatre.
Cheers Blowy, yeah it's a sweet ride but believe it or not, I would never buy one. You could put half a dozen kids through university for the cost of one of those. But, it was incredible to have so much power at the end of your foot. Like being on a ranch- 500+ ponies under the bonnet, small herd of cows inside and more grunt than a pig-farm. Total excess.
Also drove a new Porsche Panamera turbo recently too. That was lovely. Craig has a pic of that one as well.
Anyway, back to my old Subi, it serves me well.
got to be a fake...everyone knows pee wee rides a bike. two wheels good. four wheels bad.
here's my dream ride...wish i still had it
