Question of the Week: What car are you most thankful for?


The car I’m probably most thankful for is my current daily driver 2010 Jag XKR because it’s just so capable, stylish, and full of on tap performance. But the other is my newly restored and modified 1972 De Tomaso Pantera, for its sheer beauty, its beast of an engine, and its ferocious sound 6" behind your head. Arguably, it’s the best example of the '70s italian wedge design genre and one of the first true mid-engined sports cars.


My favorite car is my 1957 T-bird. Had one when I was 21 - First date with my future wife smash it into a tree - Now have anothe after 55 of marriage


I am most thankful for actually two vehicles. I have eclectic tastes. My “Pride-And-Joy” fun ride is a 1998 BMW Z3 2.8 which I ordered in the fall of 1997. It has not been driven extensively having only accumulated 28,000 KMS but it still gives me the shivers whenever I get it on a winding coastal road here in Nova Scotia.
Last October, I took possession of a 2002 Honda Vamos Microvan from Japan. I use it to go camping with my trusty Border Collie. It is in a class called “KEI Car” in Japan and is fun to drive and creates a frenzy where ever I drive it.
In the future I hope to acquire a 1965 Buick Riviera GS or a 1966 Ford Thunderbird Landau. Maybe start my own unusual car collection.
