... or at least I do.
There are always a few toys I have my eye on, and here are the current toys I want... (my wife won't let me get any of them... yet).
I tend to be a "love it or hate it" kind of guy. The first item on my wish list is one of those things that people love or hate. There aren't many that just see it. It evokes the fabulous Indian Chief motorcycles of the 1940 (and the more recent revivals). It has all of the modern touches like fuel injection and shaft drive... but looks 60 years old... I love it. This one is available on Ebay for another few hours.
The original is also available... A 1947 Indian Chief. Honestly, I'd rather have an original, but they are SO expensive, and not nearly as ridable. But you do have almost a week to pony up for it.
Since we are in the 1940s, lets add a serious icon. I don't think any other vehicle can claim to have affected the world we live in as much as the GP/GPW. This is a beautiful example of a 1944 Ford built Jeep (GPW). There are a couple more days to bid. As a side note, in 2002, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) displayed a Jeep as part of their automotive design exhibit.
The next soft spot in my head is period hot rods. Some call them rat rods. This one is FAR from ratty. It is a 1940 Ford truck that has been mildly massaged. I just love the idea of a tuned flathead Ford V-8.
To wrap up the offerings... a Prowler. A lot of people had no idea that Plymouth went out with a bang. While the Viper was stealing the show, the little division at Chrysler built a real street rod.
The Prowler was built for a couple of years around 2000, and a sales flop. But, I think that it will be a collector's item in the not too distant future. It has love it or hate it styling. Low production numbers.
This one is available here.
Of course, there are 1000 other cars and vehicles I'd love to have in my stable... let's just say that Jay Leno has made a good start.
