OK, I'll have a go. Think I might be in the world of unachievable but here's what I'd like:

1978/9 C3 (good news, got that sorted!) because I like the back window, but with an early C3 back bumper/rear end. The droopy bottom sort of lets the team down for me. At the very least one of those slightly turned up spoiler rear ends help it, but really the chrome on the back is what makes the early C3s for me.

Next up torq thrust wheels. They just look right. Not at all in love with either the rally wheels or the standard alloys.

Has to be L82, obviously.

Somehow it has to have a decent cup holder. Is anybody else astonished that America actually manufactured a car with no cup holder anywhere? Recommendations for some kind of clip on aftermarket option for that, ideally that I can get in UK or USA in the next 3 weeks. I'd actually forgotten how annoying it is not having a holder. Unless like the dashboard light dipswitch I am about to discover that it has them and they are just magically hidden in the roof panel or something.

Here's the problem. I really like autos, but I particularly like autos when I'm on the other side. IF I could have a RHD car, which is actually the biggest want other than a standard 78/79 then the manual makes sense for my brain to be able to drive it. If I can't, it turns out my dream car is an auto. Wow. I just said that out loud on the internet.

I reckon that's about it for the spec sheet. Colour would have to be that dark green colour that makes all cars look epic, chrome wheels.

Re: My Ideal Vette


Jack, there are Cup Holders and Cup Holders

How about the one that comes as an option in the Centre Console of the Ferrari F12 it is all carbon fiber and a mere 2,900 option or there about - if you are having one why care for a 100 or so.

Add it to your List Jack !

Re: My Ideal Vette


Do people actually drink while they drive? I use my cup holders (filled in with rattle can lids as the originals have holes) for loose change etc and my micro sd/mp3/radio/speaker/usb/audio system If i want to drink anything ill be stopped anyway.
