ON OUR Facebook page recently we posed the simple question: If you could have one car from the year you were born, what would it be?
STREET MACHINE 1972 Torana GTR XU-1 Telfo.
Brett Ebb Telfo, I thought it was a Sandman like how we discussed back in the 80s at Nundah State School!
Steven Harley If I had to get something from the year I was born I guess it would have to be a VN Group A.
Christopher Bluey Blanks Suppose I could put up with a Walkinshaw.
Steven Harley We need a Walky and a Group A to cruise around in!
Bruce Crockett If you want a cruiser, the VN SV5000 was better!
Steven Harley I cant afford either!
Nicholas Bull 1974 Mazda RX-4 coupe.
It was my first car and like a lot of first cars I thrashed and trashed it. I wish I had my time again or could afford another one.
Nicholas Bull Just the other day my 1986 almost-stock RX-7 turbo beat a 2010 XR6 turbo. He wasnt happy.
Bruce Crockett Did they make cars in 1961? If I had to choose, probably a 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS or C1 Corvette. I could be greedy and go a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB unfortunately I dont have a spare $18.7 million!
Laura Pendlebury 1988 BMW E30 M3.
Still (as far as I know) the most successful WTCC car of all time.
Brett Ebb I had its big sister, the E34 M5 Touring (wagon).
Damos El Comediano I had a Centura, 245 with a four-speed manual.
Did the best burnouts and flogged a few worked Toranas.
Brett Gill 76 LX Torana hatch. Like the one Ive got, only minus the rust!
Jeff Kleem Wish I was born in 1968 so I could have an HK Bathurst Monaro, but I would have to settle for a 1956 Cadillac.
Jamie Smith Got one ready for restoration Silver Mink HK Prem, white roof, red interior, 1969.
Eric James Mullen 62 Corvette, but would gladly swap for a 1970 Superbird!
Debbie Chase My favourite is a Torana, but for my birth year, an HD Holden.
Errol Pleash 1965 Plymouth Sport Fury 426. Not the lightest or fastest Mopar of the day, but oh, the road presence!
Ang Seiler I do own a car from the year I was born: a beautiful 1965 Chev Impala!
Tony Hales Okay, if I must. 1971, read em and weep I get a Phase III!
Brett Ebb All too common. I want the Phase IV.
Tony Hales I had to pick 1971, so this is the pick of the bunch. But Id like a Phase IV too. Oh well, at least I have an XA GS.
Paul Dempsey Show off!
