Me, It was a '76 Mercury Cougar XR7, loaded, got it when I was 19 in '78. It was a beautiful cruiser. I could haul-ass for hours on it's 26 gal tank, with four friends to boot! My current '95 525ia is a fantastic machine. Other than someone else paying for it, I really can't think of any other car I would like right now. As far as memories, I've only had this(my first)BMW for 6 months. But so far, so good!
1931 Ford Model A, five window coupe with rumble seat. I reversed spring eyes on leaf springs, replaced 21 inch wheels with 600X16 off of a 1936 Ford, milled head, added electric fuel pump and downdraft manifold and carburetor, and a SouthWind gas heater. That puppy would do at least 45 MPH but I needed a boat anchor to stop her (no hydraulic brakes on this one).
