You guys are right on about the GT40 being on the list and I'd probably have to go with a '36 Ford roadster and a 1970 Hemi Barracuda convertible.

I just got a car magazine today. There was an interesting column in it with the above

The guide lines were.
No.1 You could pick any three cars in the infinite world of cars.
No.2 They must remain in your possession until you die.
No.3 You can never sell them or will them to your heirs.

I picked

No.1 A really nice 1940 Ford Tudor Deluxe with all the things it should have.
No.2 A 2008 Mercury Gran Marquis with the 150 mph Cop Car engine
No.3 A 1963 Ford Galaxie Convertible with a Big Block FE Engine and Four Speed
Transmission.
my Mom had a 63 Galaxie 500 XL convertible it was dusty rose with a white top. it had a Fordamatic

Brendan,

I like your second choice of a Mercury Marauder; I had a couple of them and they were great cars. An old friend of mine put one of those engines in a '57 Ranchero.

So nobody has a desire for a 37 passenger car of any kind... Except me. Oh well.. I will be the odd man out and choose my 37 cabriolet which will never be sold. Followed by my old 63 1/2 Galaxie XL 500 427 4 speed. My last pick would be a 68 Corvette 427 tri power with a 4 speed.
