Me, I've only been on this earth a little over 23 years and I don't think I even know how to appreciate what a car is or isn't yet. I am mostly ignorant.
I'm with 4MATICbenz in that American and Japanese cars don't hold a lot of appeal. I have barely driven anything non-European in my entire life. I live in the good old U.S. of A in the southernish state of Virginia, but if you were to name some current American car, there's more than a fifty percent chance I wouldn't know what it is.
I want to drive different cars and figure out what they have to offer. Mostly I've been driving smaller cars. The largest car I have spent any amount of time driving is Volvo's S80. I say it's a magnificent car for the price, but I haven't compared it to it's competition yet.
An S-class, 7-series, or maybe an A8? Barely touched 'em.
This week there was a 95 S500 coupe I was thinking of getting, but I bought the 300CE instead. I would love to have a coupe with that much room, but to be honest, I'm scared of the big cars. I know what parts cost, and what all can/does go wrong. This is why I haven't even thought of touching a Porsche...
Update on my current projects: I think I picked up the last of the parts I needed for the CLK (clips to secure the side skirts and a door stop), and I had someone asking me today if I would take their 85 380SL in trade on my Z3 (a completed project). The SL is in very good condition and they are having the things that aren't so good about it repaired.
To be honest, I've been a little disappointed by the Z3 (an 01 with the 3.0 engine). It's powerful, but not as memorable a car as I wished it was. I can't get comfortable in the seats either...
And klexgs, unfortunately I have not even been able to drive my 535 yet. I bought it damaged in the right rear quarter panel. I have all the parts but haven't had the time to fix it yet.
Here's a picture of her 'good' side.
and the not so good side...
