    Or is there one car in your garage that you prize above others?

    Is it the performance? Handling? Driver's connection? Beauty? Resale value? Sentimental value?

    I love them all, but if I had to pick one...

    Probably the Speedster.

    It's the essence of a sports car, very simple, mechanical and direct, feels like a vintage racer. It's also iconic, and beautiful in every detail (seats; gauges; windscreen frame; Speedster fender badges; long dual tailpipes that are so vintage-y; skinny gear lever; horn grilles cut into nose; etc.)

    It may be the coolest car ever made. I've only had it since 2009, but it already has sentimental value (and the previous owner had it from 1962-2009.) It was raced and won often, including a 1963 SCCA Central championship. So, love that it lived most of its life on the track during the classic era of amateur racing.

    Jon, why did you not keep those dash stickers?

    Priceless :)

    Stunning car your speedster.

    As far as the thread subject, I have thought about changing one of my cars (no space for further additions) for something different but never can decide which one should go, so seems I love them all the same :)

    Before i got my 348, i had an 85 mustang GT built by DECH back in the day, lots of 80s performance parts on it, fairly rare piece. Once i got the 348 home, i drove the mustang once (to a company softball game, was worried the 348 might get hit lol) then put it up for sale so it could get the love it deserved haha.
