For me it would be a dark grey '66 or '67 SWB, the same color as the '70S Steve McQueen drove in the opening sequence of LeMans.* As a driver, I'm somewhat of a piker. S or no, really wouldn't matter.



*One year I had a few days off and a boatload of FF miles so I decided to go to Indy for the day to pick up some swag and watch qualifying. Chad McQeen drove by me in the car as I was crossing Hulman Blvd from swag alley to the speedway. He sold it at auction a year or two later.
