    The one I'm driving LOL.

    I always have difficulty choosing which of my cars is/was my favourite. It's all so subjective and the ownership and driving pleasure is hard to measure. I don't mean just among my T-Series either, but all my cars past and present.

    When I think back over all the cars ... I think my XE was the best vehicle from an objective viewpoint.

    Among the Ts I've owned I have to say #122 was the best of them - one of those cars that just had the right "feel" about it at all times. It's engine had more punch and always gave better fuel economy. It's chassis, suspension and driveline (apart from the Tremec roll-over rattle) was the tightest of all I've driven. After 200,000km it still drove better than most new cars. I believe the current owner is thinking of selling, and I can tell you whoever gets it will be smiling from ear to ear for a very long time. I wish I had the cash to buy it back but 001 has really stretched the budget (and the wife's patience!)

    Very nice Jeff. A dream collection you have.

    Dare I say a P250? At least I'm a few thousand k's away so Therese can't yell at me

    Maybe Tim ... but I have trouble justifying the purchase of a ute as a "toy" because I really need my utes for work. However if I was ever in the position of "cash to burn" a Pursuit would definitely be on the cards - I've already come very close a couple of times. I have another "two-door dream" though that is probably going to be my next hurdle with Therese. It's something I have wanted to do for over 10 years.

    Maybe the shell Chazza has could be a good start?
