Recently, I was asked the above question by Vertu Lease Cars, as part of a campaign they’re running.
It prompted a rather length discussion with my husband, regarding our choices.
My choice without question, has to be the very “groovy” Jaguar E-Type, with union jack decor! As a true patriotic Brit, there really aren’t any other options for me!
The Jaguar E-Type, with its sleek body, unfortunately wouldn’t be an ideal car for me, with my 2 children and husband to fit in, but a girl can dream can’t she?
The husband on the other hand, originally wanted to choose the car from Knight Rider-but retracted it once he’d realised it wasn’t from a “proper” movie! He chose it because it was cool and could talk!
Keeping in with the cool/talking theme, he ended up choosing Optimus Prime from Transformers. Not only cool, it also talks and ends up as an immense truck, that can change into any other vehicle!
Interestingly enough, the discussion expanded throughout my family, leading to my DAD, Step-Mum, Cousin and her boyfriend giving me their choices too!
My Dad chose the Highland Green 1968 Mustang GT driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt. His reasons for this car, are that it’s ‘iconic’-used in one of the greatest film car chases of all time. It also has an excellent shape, and has a deep guttural sound. And of course, it’s driven by Steve McQueen!
My Step-Mum chose, without hesitation, Herbie, the beetle in the movie LoveBug. She loved it as a child, and whenever she thinks of the car it reminds her of her childhood.
My cousin didn’t even hesitate-her and her boyfriend are car enthusiasts, and, in keeping with Keiron’s choice of the Transformers car (everyone clearly loves a transforming car/robot-she said the Chevy Camaro which is BumbleBee! When asked what prompted her decision, she said she loved BumbleBee when he was a Beetle, and has loved it for years!
Her boyfriend managed to break the mould and his choice was the Shelby Mustang GT500 from Gone in 60 seconds. An owner of three Shelby Mustangs (not real ones-miniature versions) it’s by far his favourite car!
What about you, what would your choice of car be? Leave me a comment and let me know!
