    Which now gone car brand would you want to see resurrected?

    For myself I would want Studebaker brought back. I have owned three Studebakers, including the one I own now.

    Couldn’t make the selections for the survey too numerous.

    Wish I put Packard on it. And Pierce-Arrow.

    I guess technically the Delorean is still available.

    Leyland, or preferably BMC before it became Leyland

    The 997 cooper s was iconic. Andi kind of like the MGB before it was plastic armour plated and detuned for the California market

    I would quite like an MGA or Austin Healey 3000 to play around with

    They still have the Packard museum in Warren, OH. I've been there a few times.

    MG. I had a very good B (chrome bumpers, naturally, teal blue, with overdrive) in the early 80s. The only issue was balancing those damned twin SU carburettors every few weeks.

    But seriously, no more IC engines. We need to move on.

    Borgward.
    Less for the limousines but for the legendary fire trucks.

    Tell you what: how about the Hindustan Ambassador? What a classic.

    A Morris Oxford in all but name, with an H instead of an M on the steering wheel boss. We used to call them Horace Oxfords, when I was in Dubai and used to go over to Bombay to hire people.

    Yeah, the Ambassador is something. Still plenty on the road. But nothing like the aura of a bug.

    First Cleveland, and now this? What's wrong with you?

    My first car was a Pontiac Strato Chief, well used. Dad bought all his sons a beater. My first real car that I had sole decision on was a 65 green Beetle. Last time I tried to figure it out, I've owned around 30 cars. The Beetle was the host of more 'fun' that any other, exceptin maybe the Van of the same maker.

    Hey, I was born and raised near Chicago. I'm a transplant to Cleveland. And my second car was a '72 Buick Skylark. So that has to count for some sort of redemption.

    My two favorite cars in fun factor of the multitude of cars I've own in my life were the '72 Skylark and the 2014 Nissan Maxima, though I did have off-road fun with my GMC 4x4 pickup.

    I had a white cargo van at school. The older kids who knew the reputation of the plain white van and schools gave me a hard time. "You perve!" I'd say, "After school would you like to come for a little ride?" in the fake way only a drama teacher could do. They'd laugh. Good thing some parent who didn't know me didn't wander by.
