What Car would you buy your Dad?


Recommended Posts

If your Dad were still living (sorry if he is not), and you had the means, what car would you buy for your Dad?

My choice would be a Morgan +8

My late Mother & (still going strong) Dad had a 53? Morgan +4 and reminisced about it throughout my childhood.

I would pay to restore my father's favorite car for him. It's an AMC Matador X-2. It needs body work, new paint, new ragtop, and a few other things. I don't have a picture of it, but it's supposed to look kinda like this. His has chrome side pipes on it unlike this one. I absolutely LOVE his car and I really want to see it restored for him.

WooHoo! A 19.5 foot long Eldorado almost-ragtop! I'm sure he would have let me drive it. :D

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved. - Ludwig von Mises

I actually bought my dad's car. Or rather I was the previous owner of it :ph34r:

A 1993 Volvo 960...I only had it for a year (couldn't really say I liked it). The next one was my first Cadillac!

Since he likes to restore cars (just ordinary Volvos because it is inexpensive) and reconstruct them I'm not quite sure what he would like to drive.

He's thinking about installing a double turbo in his Volvo if he can get his hands on the parts.

The exhaust systems maker that had him employed (Faurecia exhaust systems) actually did make 2 systems for a Volvo 960 with the same twin turbo engine as some Volvo S80:s had. Because the car was unique the systems was hand made and the second one still exists because it was a spare system. The Volvo was for Robert Redford.

Now if I had to think of a car that would suit him I'm sure that he would be pleased with a STS-V :D
