My dream car is the Bugatti T57 Atlantic (or just possibly a Talbot Lago teardrop coupe), but I suspect they are perhaps not as nice to drive as they are to look at, so I'll settle for a T35B Bugatti - preferably on beaded edge wheels - and keep the others as a dream...

TBH, haven't a clue - so many fantastic cars made over the past 60 years or so. But if someone held a gun to my head and asked me to decide, I'd probably say E-Type Jag MKI, sir!

OK, not an easy question, but for now, a 1966 Lincoln Continental Coupe.

I am trying to upload a photo from Photobucket but I'm not having much luck.

Ah, the Fleming's Ultimate Garage car. It is just beautiful, isn't it?

Yes indeed I am really more a Thunderbird enthusiast but I have ridden in many a Lincoln, including a Mark 3 over the Golden Gate Bridge, down past San Quentin, and en route back via the Oakland tunnel-cruising at an indicated 90, in total silence and smooth as a baby's

I did that drive in an Avis Cadillac DTS a few years ago. The GG Bridge was a real experience but, given that it has been finished for over seventy-five years and must be paid for, I couldn't believe the size of the toll.

The Caddy's column-shift automatic was quite fun, too.
