So it's obvious we all love Tri-Fives....meaning we may naturally lean towards GM.

So, when your Chevy isn't looking, what other cars (old or new) do you drive, covet, or wish you had?

Must be non GM, hence the title.

Have fun!
We drive a Classic Motor Carriages, and a Toyota.

The 318 A was used from 1957 thru 1966 when the 318 LA was introduced. I drove my parents 1964 Plymouth Fury all through high school and it had the 318. It could hold it's own Saturday night racing.

My first car when I was 15 was a 39 Ford Standard Coupe.
I had been looking for one that I could afford for many years, and finally found this one
only an hour from my house.
All new car under 80 yr old all Henry Ford steel body.
355 SBC, 400 trans. Full leather interior with AC and heat
Car goes pretty good, but have yet to get the seat just right, I may convert it to bucket seats.

Fun question! Think we all appreciate the unique look, feel and style of a variety of cars. As for older cars, the '57 Bel Air Convertible I truly enjoy is accompanied by an Olds Cutlass Pace Car and a mid seventies Eldorado. On the newer car front, it's a mix - Fords and an Audi.

My friend has a Hellcat and I must admit I was amazed after driving the car. It has a feel of a 60's muscle car combined with a NASCAR stock car and 700hp. It was amazing and for me, far more nostalgic than a new mustang or camaro. He recently sold it and bought a Hellcat redeye at 797 hp, I have not driven it YET but cant wait.

My grocery getter is a 2006 Dodge Magnum RT. Best handling car I've ever owned, It feels like it's on rails and the small Hemi is more than enough power for me.

We bought this 1982 Mazda Rx7 from the original owner and fully documented 8 years ago. We love cruising in our '55 but I enjoy the Rx7 for the speed.

I have a 1960 Pontiac Bonneville 4 door hardtop, 1990 Ford F-250 4x4 /460/C6, and a 2013 Mercedes C300 Sport. What's sad is that my Mercedes has been to Nationals twice and my Chevy hasn't.

My short list of "I want this car next" is the following:
1. 1974-76 Pontiac Trans Am / Firebird
2. 1955 150 2 door sedan
3. 1932 Ford roadster pickup. (I already have a 59AB flathead and Muncie transmission for it)

In addition to my '56 Chevy Handyman 2 door wagon, I have an addiction to early V-8 Fords, some are original, some are hot rods, and some are projects. Nine 1932 Fords - three 5W Coupes, a 3W Coupe, a Victoria, a Cabriolet, a Roadster, a Fordor Sedan, and a Pickup, plus a '34 3W Coupe and a '37 Cabriolet. All of them are Henry Ford steel except for the .Brookville Roadster

I have enough old cars to keep me busy for decades in addition to taking care of my 2006 GMC Crew Cab 1/2T short box and our Winnebago Adventurer 38R motorhome, with which I tow a hot rod on my Alumilite trailer or flat tow either my 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4WD or my lifted 1988 Suzuki Samurai 4WD.

That's what I call "Living the Dream". You have a very impressive collection.
