    The John Lennon 330 GT 2+2. Love these lines of the car, love the color.

    The Bergman 375mm 0456am. Great car. Great color. Great story. Impeccable style.

    Ferrari 250 GT/E. Enough room for me, the wife and the dog to take epic road trips.

    599 S.A. Aperta - for DD duties. Perhaps not a classic chronologically, but it will be some day.

    Not a Ferrari guy more a gt/Maserati guy, more driven by the Overall package than just the line.
    -0313EU love that quirky line and the wonderful interior, only Vignale (and Frua) had so much attention to details at the time.
    -0090E , another Vignale, its size ist looks... amazing Little Beauty. And an old V12 in spyder form that open must be a blast to drive. Green and black should not fit that well together...
    -F1 158 , line and Pedigree are not too shaby and the driving experience should be acceptable :cool:
    -500 Superfast as the 158 will need a trailer :D
    -Last one? P3/4 ? GTO? Nembo Spyder? 250 TR? something nice for the living room :p

    Heres my top 5. For the purposes of this list, I decided anything after 1973 doesn't qualify as vintage. It was very difficult. I made a list. It was still hard to get to a top 20, harder to get to a top 10, and a top 5 was more difficult still. Yet, here are the cars I arrived at. In chronological order:

    1948 166 MM
    1957 335 S
    1962 250 GTO
    1963 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso
    1964 275 GTB/C Speciale

    5 is way too few. I think 15 would begin to cover it.

    Thank you Birel.

    So many posters list various competition cars, which are very similar to all but professional racing drivers who know how to drive them flat out and get the opportunity to do so!

    My choice would be:

    500 Superfast
    250 SWB
    250 California SWB (or 250 Pininfarina spyder)
    330 GTC (because I've owned one for 36 years!)
    Daytona

    This would give me something lovely to look at, one of the best street/comp cars, a great convertible, a very useable road car and the epitome of front engined road cars.

    I could be persuaded to have a NART spyder in place of the California
