One of my favourites is Beau M’s 68 coupe. I followed the build over the years, and thought it was such a well done car. Last I saw it has a 2JZ with a single turbo. I get folks have a hard time with a non Ford engine in our beloved cars, but it’s just too cool not to appreciate it

A lot of good choices already mentioned and I couldn't agree more with them.

This car has always grabbed my attention. I really like the color combination and the I6 setup is just uber cool.

My shout-out goes to @Varilux

Good call. That car is super cool. Weird, but in all the right ways.

The anvil of reality.

I have a large number of "Favorites" represented on this forum. When a particular car catches my eye, it is because it "speaks to me" at some level. By this I don't mean "best paint" or "best coupe", rather, as I lay eyes on a particular car for the first time, my eye scans from end to end and every line, every accent, every feature flows smoothly without interruption, a sense that everything about that car is there for a distinct purpose and nothing looks out of place. Sometimes it is a result of the original style, other times it is the craftsmanship of the work, sometimes it is a combination of the senses (sight, sound, smell, touch).

That being said, one aspect of this hobby that sometimes gets lost is that it is less about the cars and more about the people who build them, drive them, and enjoy them. No, I'm not going to suggest a group hug or break out in a chorus of "Kumbaya" Relax!

For cars that I have seen personally, Buckdyedemon gets the most points for attention to detail. If you ever get a chance to get a tour from the owner, be prepared to see Obsessive Compulsive attention to detail. Next I have to say there is a lot to love about Huskinhano and 2nd66 cars and Kelly's Jane. That is more about how much pure fun the owners have with their cars, a phenomena that is hard not to value. From pictures and engineering, EvilTwin - boy would I like to beat the living daylights out of that car

Sportsroof69's 69 fastback when he was running the 408 in it. Drag racing and cruising videos were fun to watch. It appeared to be your basic 69, but that thing would get up and move.



I've started a blog about my car and adventures: http://65mustangfun.blogspot.com/

1965 Fastback, 289, Toploader 4 Speed, owned by me since June 1980. Originally a C-code with a C-4. 5R09C16****

Another vote for Kelly's "Calamity Jane" here.
There's many superb cars to choose from.
This ones my favourite because of the way it is used and enjoyed.

Favorites are impossible to pick... every car has its strengths of course. I've yet to see a car in this thread that I haven't thought, "damn... I want my car to look like that when it's done."

289
4 speed
Rally-Pac
Bench Seat
Power Steering
All-around discs
Aftermarket A/C

And not nearly enough time
