Question of the Day: What is the best car you’ve owned?

Give us your take in the comments section


Maybe it was fast, handled well or could stop on a dime. Maybe it looked great, had great creature comforts, and pedigree. We’ve all had some lemons, good cars and some we’ve dread ever owning.

So dear readers, what is the best car you’ve owned?

Give us your take in the comments section below. Like my high school history teacher always told me, “There are no wrong answers.”

My Take? My 2012 Chevrolet Camaro RS; it was fairly quick, looked cool, handled well, and had some cool aftermarket wheels.

  1. 1966 Pontiac Bonneville drop top !389 monster brl carb navy blue on blue! 26 gals of fuel and geared to cruise! Breathed to have a gentle roar! Traded for a family van during the age of custom hippie wagons!

  2. 2011 Audi A8L. Eleven years ago Car & Driver described it as “The face of a beast and the body of an angel”. I’ve owned over 50 cars and nothing else can compare, although I do lust after the ’91 Cadillac Fleetwood in my neighbor’s driveway.

  3. I owned a 1977 Pontiac Bandit Trans Am with Hurst shifter. The only car I’ve ever regretted selling. I’m working on getting another one if I can find one identical and the price is right.

  4. 2003 H2 Hummer by far. Yes it was bad on gasoline (6.2) but I knew that going in. I owned it for 13 yrs…..replaced s started once…..NOTHING else! Garage kept
    Used it for travel on the interstate…the seats were outstanding, like sitting in your favorite chair at home.
    GM dropped the ball on stopping production
    I now have a 6.2 (gas) Silverado High Country. It hauls the mail when you stomp it….great trick!

  5. 1969 Shelby get 500, I bought it from a landscaper going out of business in 1975, just after the first oil. Embargo. I was a junior in high school and had never driven a 4 spd up to that point. He was asking $4000 and I had $1800 and he took it! No one wanted a big block in those days… lol. It was black jade w/ black interior and has 42000 miles on it when I got it. The really cool feature about the car that it was so aero dynamic that if you ran the car up to 65+ in a rain storm the front windshield would remained dry with no wipers going. That always amazed me.

  6. Hard question, after 60 + years of interesting cars, it is hard to say. 60s Volvos, great, new Volvos. not so good. Datsun 510, great, 2002 MINI great[ still have], love my 2019 MINI Clubman. Of course love my Morgans the best.
