A little escapism for my Wednesday. My life is stupid and bad so it is always nice to escape for a while… Here’s a complete(ish) list of all the cars I’d own if money was no object, in order of preference. I’d do a countdown but I don’t know how many I’ll end up with so it is easier to start with #1:
The Honda NSX. My favourite car in the world. I still remember the first time I ever saw one. And I don’t usually remember things too well (I’m excellent at repressing memories too!). I’d have a Type R in either Championship White or yellow with some black concave face TE37s.
Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth. The only non-Japanese car I want (yes, I’m a fanboy, shut up). This was the car that got me into small turbo cars. Mine would be red with gold BBS wheels – just like the Dick Johnson cars.
Nissan Silvia S13 Convertible. Obviously it would have the SR20 & 5 speed swap (no one likes CA autos), but this is my ultimate Silvia. The only things I’d change here would be to fit lower offset wheels and 1988 model headlights.
Honda Odyssey -or- Nissan Elgrand. I want a people mover. I have big plans too. Has to be black, with Japanese aero, 20 inch wheels, airbag suspension and a big crazy exhaust. Inside, the 2nd and 3rd rows of seats get removed and replaced by a wrap around couch. There’s a big plasma screen behind the front seats. The carpet is bright red, and the seats are black leather. If I don’t get friends with that I never will.
R35 GTR. Just cos, I guess. Although it does need less auto… I think I’d probably buy the Garage Defend one. It is sexy. I’d colour code the skirts and rear lip though. They look a lot better colour coded.
Toyota Century. Like the one I posted a while back. No other car on the road has the same combination of cool and sophisticated and important. A Rolls Royce has the sophisticated and important down pat, but it is hardly cool. I’d cruise around in my Century looking down my nose at people. Kind of like I do now, but it would be justified if I had a Century.
So that’s more or less the lot, I think. Pretty much covers everything – I have the around-town cruiser (Century), the road trip bus (Odyssey/Elgrand), the car I’m too scared to drive in case I hurt it (Sierra), the poser (Silvia), the weekender (NSX) and the “haha, I’m better than you, I have an R35” car (R35). Now to buy some Tattslotto tickets. That lot would be sure to get me a girlfriend. A shallow one who would probably steal my cars and fortune and then run off with someone else, but I’d be thankful for the attention for however long it lasted. And I wouldn’t be myself if I had a happy ending – I need some reason to be bitter.
