QOTD: The Truth Shall Set You Free

qotd the truth shall set you free

Everyone has deeply buried secrets they hope no one ever exhumes. You know exactly what I'm talking about– the gang banger who listens to REM when his posse's out of earshot, the televangelist who retains the services of hookers after darkness falls, or the occasional FBI director who enjoys nylons and high heels. Gearheads have their clandestine thoughts too. Your friends consider you an expert on all things automotive so you'd never want them to know your true desires. Your dark side is there just begging to see the light of day. Now is your chance to come clean and cleanse your karma. We want to know: What cars are you embarrassed to admit you like and secretly covet?

    Okay, okay, I'll admit it. My dream garage would house a 60s muscle car, an Aston Martin and something exotic and Italian, but don't be surprised if you see (gulp) a Citroen 2CV6 "Charleston," in maroon and black. Hey, they're my favorite colours. Almost.

    I don't think wanting a Miata (MX-5) is embarrassing. Guys that call it a 'chick car' just don't know anything about cars. Anyway, here are a couple that I wanted growing up (and these ARE embarrassing): 1988-1992(?) Buick Reatta - I always found this car to be sexy. Toyota Previa minivan - For some reason, I used to think these were sporty.

    I still miss my '75 Beetle, fuel infection (not a typo, that fi system was terrible) and all. The dark secret is wanting to resurrect a '68 Valiant I had as a youth. I kinda miss my '80 Citation v-6 coupe too.... oh hell, I'll drive anything - I love 'em all!

    This is tough. Please don't judge me. My name is Johnny Canada, and I've always wanted an early 1970's Buick "Boat Tail" Riviera. Damn, it feels good to finally admit that.
