    Alfa Romeo 8c2900B ... the perfect car.

    As for a Ferrari, it has to be a 250LM. Won Le Mans, is gorgeous and technically with it. To me a far better car than the 250GTO.

    Saying that I am waiting for Jim to put his engine in the P3/4 because that will be a very influential photo ... ;)

    Oh, how I hate picking favorites! :) With so many fine automobiles made before '69 it'll be a tough choice even if its narrowed to just road cars.

    Pre-war non Ferrari... probably, a Boat Tail Duesenberg Model J Speedster, but the general list is kinda long.

    Post-war non Ferrari... I'm feeling the Jaguar XK120, but it changes. ;)

    Ferrari... 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, with the competition aluminum body!

    That's a 1964 250 GTO. It had a different body style than the '62 (on the left)

    Oh, Kevin, I love the old Bentleys too. The Fastback coupe, actually, must must must be in my garage at some point. The sweeping lines are just gorgeous in person.

    first post here..:) passionate young portuguese classic ferrari fan. Without a doubt the ferrari 375 MM Pinin Farina Berlinetta, one of the 1953 Carrera Panamericana.(i think one is in the hands of the Shell Historic Race organizer Jean Sage, lucky guy) :) Dream....Close 2nd the 250 LM, Alfa 33 Strasdale or the Maserati 5000 GT Corsa. Ohhhh, but those 340/375....

    For one, the engine and transmission sharing the same oil bath. Later mods were referred to as a "split sump,"

    and bad front-end lift at speed. An add-on chin spoiler hurts the styling.
