7 Rides to Heaven

What's going on everybody? Anybody who knows me knows that I am a HUGE fan of quality and I tend to be more intrigued by things that are older as apposed to the things that are new... For the exception of electronic gadgets and devices I absolutely Love things older than me. From Art, to music, to movies, and style, hell even Women. Shout outs to all you beautiful Cougars and Pumas out there, especially.... I digress. Lol.

But amongst these things cars are one of if not my favorite of all old things.

I've been a car fanatic for as far back as I can remember. All my Life I've loved cars. Sports cars, Exotic cars, Luxury cars, Concept cars and especially Classic cars. See I like new Cars, and I appreciate the fact that technology has advanced so much that without ever being in a certain place your navigator system can tell you which direction to go and which road to take.

BUT: when it comes to the comparison of vehicles, nothing compares to the look and idea of me driving down the West Side Highway in a 1987 Cadillac Brougham, fully restored with a Brand new paint job and nicely polished chrome bumpers and door handles, with a License plate that says 'IAM GROWN.' OOOOWWWWEEEE!

You see, I'm really not like any other dude you know. I love and have a deep respect for classic anything. So the navigator systems, push button engine starts, turning headlight, bluetooth and all that other jazz is highly un necessary to me: so here are the 7 Dream cars that I WILL own before I die. Starting with my All time Favorite, Ultimate Dream Car. My real fans should know what it is by now:

1964 Chevrolet Impala
Convertible Coupe:
^I fell in love with this car the first time I saw it in "Boyz N' the Hood" driven by Dough Boy played by Ice Cube. (His was a 63 though) It was this same champagne color, a Lowrider with all the golden accents, bumpers, etc. After doing some research and and falling in love with Lowriders this car became my Ultimate Dream car. If I never own any car other than this one I don't mind!

1963 Cadillac Coupe Deville
Convertible Coupe:
^ You think Travis Barker loves Cadillacs? Okay, I gotta admit, I don't love em as much as he does lol. But I guarantee you this, his love for them has mine beat by only an ounce, if even that much! I first saw this beautiful Car in some magazine who's name at the moment slips my mind. I was young, and I fell in love with it, from the fins over the tail lights, the beautiful chrome grill and headlights, the hub caps etc. Til this day I shiver when I see it.

1987 Cadillac Brougham
Hard Top Sedan:
^ I've loved this car since the first time I laid eyes on it. I must have been 5 or 6 and this old man in my grandparents building had one in Powder Blue. Oh man, it had these same wheels and white wall tires. The headlights, the Grill, the emblem above the grill, the word "Cadillac" engraved in the rear view mirror oooh man, Gimme a minute.... LOL!

1987 BMW 325i
Convertible Coupe:
^ This one I honestly can't remember when I saw, but I was reminded of it when I saw it in the 2002 film "Paid in Full." The same Cherry Red, its just such a beautiful car and BMW has been my favorite make since I was a 7 or 8 year old child. Something about the double box Grill and Blue and white logo just do it for me. I can see myself driving this one down the block with some gold BBS Racing rims. Wait til you see me in this one.

1987 BMW 735i
Hard top Sedan
^ This to me is just an amazing machine. BEAUTIFUL, and aside from BMW being my favorite make of cars, 1987 is the year I was born, so the idea of driving a car that as old as I am is for lack of a better word: Amazing!

1993 Honda Accord
Hard Top Coupe:
^ Now I'm from a lil borough in New York called The Bronx, and out here Hondas are about the only things that are reliable. LOL, AMAZINGLY fuel efficient, and this one in particular is just a timeless classic in my opinion. The big rectangular tail lights, the thin line grill and Headlights, its just a classic in my eyes! and i wont tell you what I have planned for this one, but its Big!

and last but most certainly not least

2005 BMW 745li
Hard Top Sedan:
^ Gimme a minute of Silence for this one right here....... Geez Louis! Where do I begin... I still remember when this car was released to the public! To me, it was like nothing I'd ever seen before, the designs, the engineering, even the look of the head lights and tail light made me all but erect, and maybe even that! Lmao BMW hit another one out the park with this one, and til this day I love it when I see it. I thik I'll get this in all black.

I know what your thinkin: 'What, these are dream cars? No Lamborghini's, no Ferrari's, Phantoms and Maybachs?"

Yes Cot Dammit, YES!
who knows I might lease all of those other cars, but these 7 I plan on owning, no payments, no nuttin! I want every last on of em in the driveway and I want the titles in my hand! For the exception of the Honda, I plan on doing very little to each, subtle fabrications and heavy restoration. Well, yet again, I've let ya into my mind state, hope ya enjoyed it as much as I did. when i get them I wanna come pick ya up so ya can ride with me.

So in a few days listen for the Horn! lol
Stay Up and Stay Tuned
