We’re not going to be selfish and only have the contributors of reveal their dream cars. Instead, we invited the entire editorial team of to share their dream ride with you:

Patrick Olsen, managing editor
Mine was the Mini Cooper S, manual, until I drove the Porsche 911 Turbo convertible. That's my dream car now.

David Thomas, KickingTires editor
Porsche Cayman S, black

Joe Bruzek,
A black 1967 Corvette coupe with red stinger hood. Underneath would be the powertrain and chassis from a 2008 Z06 Corvette — gotta stick with a 427. Who wants to lend me $250,000 to build this?

Beth Palmer, copy editor
BMW M6 coupe, blue

Sarah Gersh, multimedia producer
Audi R8

Amanda Wegrzyn, Advice editor
Jaguar XK convertible, blue

Eric Rossi, multimedia producer
Ferarri Enzo at No. 1, with a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage as a close second.

Stephen Markley, assistant producer
My dream car is a four-door sedan that I fill exclusively with biodiesel made from algae (seriously). I would also like a moonroof and extra-wide cupholders.

Lindsay Bjerregaard, multimedia producer
Aston Martin DBS

Bill Jackson, Buying Guide editor
2008 Subaru WRX (not the STI version), black or red, with manual transmission, iPod interface and heated seats.

Kelsey Mays, reviewer
‘91 Toyota MR2 Turbo

Joe Wiesenfelder, senior editor
1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate

Mike Hanley, reviewer
1967 Chevrolet Impala

Ian Merritt, staff photographer
All I need in my life is an Audi S5. In a matte black or matte gray finish.

Eamonn Brennan, assistant producer
My dream car is a 1991 Cutlass Supreme, just like my first car, except this time a washed-up rapper "pimps" it for me. He places an XBOX 360 in the steering wheel, an ant colony in the passenger console, and windshield wipers that say "Eamonn is awesome" every time I flick them. And my horn plays a live version of 2112 every time I honk it. This car would be *awesome*.   

I wouldn't even drive anywhere.
