    Thanks :)

    On the hybrid thing - hybrid cars don't tend to be significantly more economical than many diesel cars, and diesel, being a more viscous hydrocarbon, is easier to extract :)

    The real solutions are not hybrids, but diesel-electrics (a hybrid system as used on trains, with a generator on tick-over powering an electric motor), hydrogen fuel cells (water as emissions baby) and charged at the plug electric cars (nucleur power stations allowing).

    Thanks Craig, I didn't notice it was a McLaren Mercedes, I don't really like those but it is indeed a nice car.

    For this being such an expensive car, you'd think it'd have a roof...

    I'd still have to go with a one of the older American cars.
    Ford Bronco is very nice, a camaro or charger is high on the list as well..

    Really Synth?

    I mean, sure, it'd be in my dream 30 car garage, but it's not top of the list. Imagine drivnig across the country to see relatives, or picking up the shopping from the supermarket!

    a luxury car, such as a BMW 750i, would be my DD and a sports car of my personal choice will be my weekend "toy"

    Why the 750i, out of interest? Or that just a random example?

    Ew. I can't stand the 700 series -- way too big!

    And I've always had a soft spot for Lotuses, ever since I saw one in Portugal when I was 6.

    Some other contenders:

    I've always loved Corvettes ever since riding in a 80s one when I was very little :p

    And I just...love...Jaguars.
