Nice choice, i wouldnt take a Mini fromt he 70s, i'd either take a 1959-1960 model, or a 1998 model (pre BMW) because the 70s was not the time for building of cars.....

They were the same from 1959-1998 so id take an early or late one.

And the original Range Rover.

oh YEAH ...forgot about those .....they looked so much beatter in 2 door trim
i gotta add one more ...1973 GMC Motorhome .....redone by my taste ...
Yeah, i had a 1980 four door model, i wish i hadnt got it now and gone for a 79 2 door, it was the first year of that style Range and everything broke.

They were great though, i also have a special place for my Ford Cortina, but nobody else will.

i liked the lotus cortina beatter ....
I wish i had that type, i had a 74 mk3 Cortina, it had the vinyl roof and "american" styling.

It was onyl two yaers old but that went wrong alot too. Then i got my SD1V8 and i knew the meaning of the word "fault"

Like that one with a black vinyl roof and yellow bodywork
1977-78 Eldorado

1979 Eldorado

1975 Grand Prix

1972 Riviera
being born in 1974, I can't remember lusting after any cars (stoney you weren;t even born till the 80's, impressive knowledge!)

70's really was low tide for cool cars with the oil crisis and what not, but I do like those 70 model vettes, especially in a convertible body style.

I guess, i can't be specific but I loked those land yachts like the caprice convertible and what not....
That's an easy question, the 442 my Dad bought new, or my old '69 Charger......(1969 was close enough to 1970 ;) ) The Olds was 10 times nicer than the Charger in reality.

Always crazy for the 1979 Avanti Convertible, built on a 1979 Corvette chassis.
