Mine would be the other car in my sig except that Iíve never actually driven it. It has been under restoration forever.

I keep my cars on average 10 years which means I just havenít owned many (the SS is #5), My 2nd favorite was probably the Tacoma. Insanely reliable and very enjoyable to drive in a much different way. It only had one minor issue ó the frame rotted out.

Tale of Two Coupes

2004 GTO LS1 manual...miss the 29mpg highway mileage, nice camshaft lope at idle, and the way it obliterated a Lexus IS350 on a long merge from 2 lanes into 1 near Fort Bliss, Texas. Still see its ghost/memorial to this day sometimes at the scene of the conquest. RIP Lexus-san

I haven't really owned that many cars over the years compared to many "enthusiasts". I tend to get attached to them and keep them longer than I should. Even so, it's hard to pick a single favorite. Since the OP listed two, I'll try that.

1. 2001 M5. A great car to drive, an OK car to own. Sold in '06 when our second was born. The SS goes along way toward easing the pain, but I still miss it sometimes.

2. Stretched '77 CJ5. The most fun I ever had with my clothes on, over and over and over again. A nightmare to own, mostly because I made countless terrible decisions and ruined a great Jeep. Hasn't been started in over 5 years. Collecting dust in a storage barn on nearly flat tires. Will probably need to sell it soon and it will not be easy to do.

'16 SLIHRM Auto/Roof/Spare | #1,584 of 2,221 (#66 of 85, as optioned)
'07 Suburban 1500 LTZ 6.0L
'98 XJ on 35s, 4.0L/AW4
'77 Stretched CJ5 on 38.5s, 455 Olds/700R4

No car I have ever owned compares to the 2 SSs we have owned.

Not my 1979 Trans Am (the first nice car I ever owned).
Not my 1974 (?) Jensen Healy.
Not even my 1968 Mercedes 250 SL (White with red leather interior).

The SSs are faster, handle better, more reliable than any of those cars.
It really isn't a contest....
