    Rules: one car built in your own Country, remaining two foreigners.

    One car built in my country ? I'll take that as being the country of my birth, rather than the country I live in because the last thing I want is a Spanish car :)

    1973 Ford Capri RS3100
    1972 Chevrolet Camaro
    1937 Morgan Supersport 3 wheeler

    Throughout automotive history?

    For a car built in my own country: 1933 Pierce-Arrow Model 1247 LeBaron Club Sedan (http://www.pierce-arrow.org/history/images/33clbsdn.jpg)

    For non-US cars: Jaguar XK-E coupé and the Mercedes C300 4Matic (current)

    There are a lot of cars that make me drool like a dog near bacon, but I would want one that I could actually use every day. This leaves out older Jaguars (Lucas, Prince of Darkness electricals) and pre-1980s cars from just about anybody (death when some other bozo screws up is not high on my list of priorities)

    For me, a domestic would be the 1933 Ford 3-window coupe. I have worked on and owned countless classic/vintage/antique American vehicles, but never had the opportunity to own the '33 Ford.

    For imports, laugh all you want, but I would like to own another 1966 VW bug...I had a 1966 (and a 1968 retro project) and enjoyed everything about it. Even though my 1979 BMW 320i was a freakin' demon to get out on the country back roads and carve up the countryside, the VW bug was more appealing to me.

    And I want my 2008 Scion tC back...special ordered and shipped from Japan...it was everything a person could ask for in a sporty yet economical ride. Comfortable, quiet at highway speeds, all sorts of technical goodies, fast, nimble and just damned-good looking. It also proved to be extremely durable in a potentially fatal high-speed collision...you just couldn't ask for more.

    My Scion before:

    My Scion after:

    So, in reality, you've only picked two working cars then, picking a Ford?
