Bored whilst sitting in my dream car waiting for kids, what's your dream car?

Never, ever been interested in cars, past them being reliable and a comfortable ride.

Everything else can go swivel for me. 🤪

So, my dream car would have great miles per gallon and allow me to sleep at the wheel on long journeys.

Yep 2.0 Skoda Octavia estate suits me just fine. Over 60 to the gallon and £25 road tax per year.

Hmmmm tough question, for every day use? If I won the lottery I'd obviously have the super cars but these:

I like classics from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, I could fill a warehouse so too many to mention. If I win the lottery the only new(ish) car I’ve promised myself is an Ariel Atom 3.5. Drove them a couple of times on driving experience days, the best fun you can have on 4 wheels without buying a van with a bed in the back.

I ride motorbikes so there’s them too. Have a soft spot for 4 cylinder air cooled Japanese bikes. A Honda CB400/4 and a early air cooled GPZ 750 please.
 
They have a lovely bit of oomph.

I worked at Gaydon in the compound for a year or so, basically just parking cars and getting them for the transporters. They used to nearly take off.

An 18 year old in one of those in a car park was mental, looking back.
You don't really need to touch the accelerator to move from stopped. Just tick over is about 10mph

I loved my Hinkley Triumph 900 Daytona. Not really a sports bike but a great tourer (based on the Kwak triple). The Suzuki TL1000 was a great bike but didn't suit the wife as a pillion. KTM have produced some great grunty motors

285 degree crossplane crank twins, KTM are the only company making them pretty much and apparently it’s the optimum degree on a crank for a parallel twin. Most modern parallel twin are 270 for mass production and cost. Not tried a KTM but heard they’re the nuts.

Get yourself a test ride 😜

I drive a Suzuki Swift these days but going back 20 plus years I had Golf GTI's found them plenty fast enough and bullet proof engines.... ashamed to admit I've attended three drivers awareness courses in the past... always for being very slightly over a 30 mph speed limit 👍

Anyone of these but I'd have to also have a decent sized garage for it/them and a few bikes
