{guest blogger ansley: dream cars}

Do you have a dream car?  When I’m being practical I would say something like a Toyota Prius or Hybrid Civic.  But my real dream car is a BMW, an old one like a 1973 BMW 2002 (I think the convertible is a 1600).  But I have to wait either until I can afford to completely restore it with new interior, new engine, and chrome trim on everything, or wait till I get married so I always have someone to call when it won’t start.  These pictures are great (especially the lederhosen) but to me, the ideal color is

a shiny deep maroon.



  1. I love old cars like this. My dream car is a 1985 Toyota Landcruiser or an old Jeep with wood paneling.Not sure how to reconcile my desire for these cars with my wish to reduce my carbon footprint.

  2. I think they made some Land Cruisers with diesel engines. You could use biodiesel. You could have that and a scooter and mostly use the scooter. There has to be a way to make it work.

  3. A couple weeks ago I walked passed a beautifully restored carmengia that was a robin’s egg blue. Absolutely gorgeous. But really almost any old car that has good lines and can be fixed by the driver (in other words built prior to computers & cars).

  4. This was the very first car I learned to drive in! Did my driver’s license test in it and everything… it lives with my brother now… silver and dreamy. My dad’s first ca purchase is still a classic
