A few weeks ago, we talked about the classic cars that every enthusiast should drive at least once in his or her life. These were cars – or types of cars – that were significant for one reason or another. A V12-powered car for the jaw-dropping acceleration, a Beetle for a lesson in sheer automotive simplicity, and so on.
Today, we’re talking about the classics that we’d like to drive just for curiosity’s sake. I recently crossed off a car from my to-drive list: a friend’s 1992 BMW M5 (e34), pictured below. He doesn’t take it out very often and I’m never around when it does see the light of day, but two weeks ago the stars aligned and I finally found myself in the driver’s seat for about 20 minutes.
M5 aside, I’ve always wanted to drive an old Škoda Rapid, the one that people call a poor man’s 911. Any Trabant would be awesome to take for a spin, as would a Karmann Ghia, a Subaru 360 and an e24 BMW 6 Series, among others.
How about you, what’s on your to-drive list?
