What's Your Flavor … Dream Car

Currently I am in the ultra-cool “mini-van mom” club. Complete with dropped food and crunched up school art projects.

But that isn’t my dream car … shocking, but true.

If money and practicality were no issue, I’d drive one of these:

New Ford Thunderbird.

Powder Blue.

Hard-top with the little window in the back.

Now, I know I’ll never actually drive on of these. I mean, I have kids, that would just be silly. But I do enjoy looking at them non-the-less.

How about you? What do you currently drive? What’s your dream car? (Remember to throw money and practicality out of the window!)

    Marc and I have been drooling over a Cadillac STS for a while. We had a Lincoln LS but he totaled it in a car accident a year ago. Right now he is driving a car I won’t even mention because its just plain pitiful. Let’s just say its still a lincoln, but its old and big and I hate it with a passion. God is working on me. 🙂

    Oh,and for those of you who are wondering why I didn’t say what car I drive its because I don’t drive! That is a long story for another time.

    I drive a compact Corolla…one car family…(so I don’t actually drive it that often!) BUT my dream car is acutally a MINI-VAN!! Our lease is up soon and that is my dream…sad but true…lol!

    I drive a ’99 Oldsmobile Alero and have for 8 years (since high school!) The passenger window is duct-taped up, driver’s side window occasionally works, hazard light button is barely hanging on, rust spots are starting to appear…yup, it’s pretty classy 😉 We don’t want to put any more money into the car than we have to since things are pretty tight for us financially. But hey, it runs fine, passes annual inspections, and we don’t have payments on it, so its little quirks don’t bother me so much!

    My dream car right now…I can’t pick just one! I looooove old Mustangs…late-70’s or even the mid-90’s, black convertible. And Jeep Wranglers. And if we’re REALLY dreaming here, Aston Martins are pretty sweet. Mmmm yes 🙂

    I am also in the minivan club girl!

    If I could have any car…money not an object orroom for kids..I would have a 5 speed mustang cobra! Yes…yes…I love to go fast! 🙂 Vroom vroom!

    Ha, Yes you guessed it….another momma drives the mini van! I like to call my 2003 blue mini van “old blue”; however, she has been very good to us! 🙂

    I would love to own a Volvo XC90! (basically a suv fully loaded by volvo) 🙂

    i’m a proud mini van owner as well!

    i have two dream cars… the dream mom car ( a range rover) and the dream when the kids are gone car… a loaded volvo hatchback.

    oh to dream! 🙂

    I drive a ’98 Ford Mustang. Which means it’s not as sexy as it sounds. It’s got some miles on it. When I got it, it was my dream car except it didn’t have the convertible top and it wasn’t new. (I’ve never personally had a new car!)

    My dream car – I don’t know exactly except it would be a convertible. There’s nothing like the wind whipping your hair around and feeling the sun on your face! oh yeah! And maybe I’d live in Hawaii….. 🙂

    A red Corvette. My mom had one when she was around my age. Bought it herself. Unfortunately a guy ran a red light and totalled her car so she no longer has it….but ever since she showed me pictures of that gorgeous car I have been in love! A total dream car!

    Oops…btw we are currently a one car family and we drive a 95 Camry. Next car I am hoping will be a small SUV….one that can carry our family and all of the STUFF!! Dan won’t allow me a to have a mini van….he said something about his pride!! Lol!!!!

    We currently drive a 2003 Mazda Tribute. It’s pushing 150+K miles, but I love it. The only thing I hate? The color. It’s this yucky champagney/kahki color.

    Dream car? Nissan Maxima midnight blue chromed out with charcoal interior. I like the look of the new Maxima’s but my mom bought one off the showroom floor in 1985 when we lived in Germany. It was a two-toned blue I didn’t like, but the thing talked!! Not like K.I.T.T. from Night Rider, but practical things like when a door was opened, when gas was running low, those kinds of things. I would totally want that same system running through my beautiful new maxima!

    We did the mini-van route for nearly 10 years. Although I loved it and it served its purpose to our family … I was happy to see it go! When we moved to Michigan we had to get rid of our two wheel/rear wheel drive cars. Anyone who lives in snow will know why. We had too many tow truck experiences. We ended up buying two used Dodge Durango’s with 4-wheel drive. And haven’t had to pay to get pulled out of a snow bank yet. As far as my dream car goes … unfortunately I tend to lean towards the gas guzzling, not very eco-friendly SUV’s. A fully loaded Ford Expedition was always one of my faves. Suburban’s are probably a close second.

    Currently drive Korean car, Kia Spectra, a gas-saving ‘basic’ that gets me where I gotta go. But my dream car is a red, convertible BMW 330. I believe I’d pass out if I found one in my driveway!

    I prefer to drive our Chrysler Aspen, but since it needs new tires the hubs isn’t too keen on me toting the kids in it right now. So I usually drive, not just a mini van, but a full size conversion van! I will say it is great for trips, just a little big for me on a daily basis.

  15. Lisa Hughes

    I currently drive a Navigator which I love. I think my dream car would be a Range Rover with a 3 seat:) Lori, you would rock the powder blue Thunderbird!

    My husband and I swallowed our pride and bought a mini van last month when baby #3 came. Throughout my pregnancy my husband was insistent that we could fit 3 car seats across the 1 back seat in our Ford Escape. As my due date got closer and closer I was imagining road trips w/ 3 kids practically on top of each other. So we finally caved and bought an Odyssey (used might I add).

    After we got the mini van, I told my husband that when the kids are gone I want him to buy me a mini cooper. I’m sure he will. 🙂

    Currently driving a 2001 suburban, LOADED… with bits of hay, boots, horse shampoo, power tools, bubbles, all from various events involved in churchwork around Cross Trails Cowboy Church. My dream car…hmmm…maybe just a new suburban with heated leather seats and dual controlled a/c! With 5 kids…even though they’re all growing up and driving their own vehicles…don’t think I will EVER want a vehicle we can’t all just pile in to go on one of our infamous roadtrips!

    Like many of you, I am also a Mini-van Mom. A 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan (old but PAID for with only 100,000 miles) Mini-van Mom.

    As nice as it is NOT to have a car payment, I have begun to dream… I want a Ford Flex… a silver one please. Every time I see one on the road, I say “Look! There’s my car!” 😉

    And since we’re dreaming, go ahead give me the leather interior and the dual headrest DVD system. 🙂

  19. Rindy Walton

    I drive a black Grand Prix with flames on the sides!! 😉

    Seriously! I bought it last summer from friends–husband & wife both mechanics so it was perfect condition, 2001, with low miles & a great deal…the flames just came along with it! It does make it fun when I pull into my patients houses (I also do home health care) or sitting at a red light when they see I’m not a teen rocking to the latest music!

    Right now my favorite ‘dream car’ is a blue BMW Z4 convertible!
