    The DeLoreans, Shelby Cobra and the '51 Merc! Any of those would be dope. One that I would love to see these guys make in the future would be the 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442.

  28. Victor G
    July 4, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    I prefer the Back To the Future “Red Wheel” Limited Edition, but it has 750 GB hard drive, but the 1967 Mustang GT500 Eleanor is better bang for the buck, with a 1 TB hard drive for $10 less.

  29. Tom
    July 4, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    Flash to the Future! I'd go for the original 1985 red wheel DeLorean or the Shelby. These do make me wonder what a Tesla version would do ;-).

  30. Warren Kelly
    July 4, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    The train wheel DeLorean. Definitely. Sweet looking vehicle.

  31. David

  36. German Lopez
    July 4, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    These are so cool. Deloreans are the best of course followed by Merc and Lincoln.

  37. Kim
    July 4, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    They all look great. The Dolorean, Eleanor, GT-R, ZR1 and Cobra are my top picks that I'd love to win one of. But I'd also "pity the fool" who'd say no to the A-Team van so I'll add that to my picks too. I would seriously make a few peeps jealous in the office if I won.

  38. Will
    July 4, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    If it was me..... I'd probably keep them!... They are awesome... I'll be seeking out 'Eleanor' later!..

  39. Mel C

  40. Gil

    • Mihai T

      I noticed that too, but as long as the drive looks like my favorite car, I don't care about specs. :D
