What is the most interesting or memorable car you have driven?

Mine is a 1941 Dodge sedan.

my best friend's dad wanted to get an antique car for a toy, and he found one at Country Classic Cars in Staunton IL. my buddy invited me to go along with them on the trip down (about a 2 hour drive) to pick it up. His dad let me drive it for about 45 minutes on the return home.

Straight 6, three on the tree, suicide doors and it was restored to almost new condition. Engine had a lot of blowby, and they ended up replacing it several months later.

we pretty much turned everyones heads as we drove back on the back roads.

Uhm...theres lot, i dont even know where to begin.

anything from a 1999 911 Twin Turbo, Jags XK-8's M3, M5's, Rolls Phanton II, to a Model A(1930), and model T(1919).

the vast cars i have driven, is because of a dealership i worked at in HS, and my High School GF's Grandfather was a car collector.

If i had to choose it was a Bugatti!!!! Hell freakin yeah!! I want to say it was an Atlantic. I looked it up to make sure. And it was/looks just like the Bugatti 'Atlantic' 57

(this isnt his)

Granted i only drove it maybe 10 miles....it was freakin GLORIOUS!!!! i just wish i would have gotten pics of it. i know i have some at home. :( but the memories of all the cars i have driven just put a huge smile on my face!! :gross_07:

'55 Phantom IV
'84 Silver Spur
'60 Silver Cloud

Many, many more. I used to work for Bud Paxson, founder of Home Shopping Network, and PAX TV, who is an avid collector of Rolls, Bentleys, and Exotics. He lived in Bellair just south of here then, before moving over to West Palm on the other coast. His house was built by Donald Robeling, the architect of the Brooklyn Bridge. I moved his cars around to different shows. Even got to drive a Rolls limo for about 5 miles once. I was so friggin nervous, you couldn't have drove a nail up my ass with a sledgehammer.

call me a redneck, but the most interesting car I've driven was this beat up old jeep:


It was soo fun. Plowing through cornfeilds at 60 MPH and mudding the heck out of it. We flipped it on its side by accident, flipped it back over and drove off. That thing is a tank.

hehe 911s are soo nice.. i think the roof rack idea is soo cool... they have little flaps that open up. The saddest thing i saw was a junked 2002 m5 motor, broke my heart as the junker took it away.

Ummmmm, I drove some dude's 300C, asked his driver to give me the keys to his '04 Viper but his driver was afraid that starting it up in the driveway would wake up his boss. Gave me the 300C keys instead and $50 to go get a bunch of big mac combos at Mcdonalds.
