Not sure I'd want that! I'd be stuck with something like a Ford Prefect - I was even born just before Minis were launched!

Vauxhall Velox: my uncle had one and I've wanted one ever since.

Gosh! Don't see many of them these days!! Looks nicer than some of the 50s & 60s Vauxhalls which seemed to incorporate the worst bits of USA styling.

For me it would be a Yam XS650 chopped to a Bobber and the Shelby GT 500

I used to have a C12. Great little bike. Bought for £12.10s.0d when I was 16. Used it as a commute for about a year until it was written off in a SMIDSY. :( The front wheel ended up under the engine.. Funnily enough in a collision with my second choice.. :D A Minor 1000!

I'd probably go for an A10 Super Rocket and a Morris Minor1000 saloon. (in maroon) :)
