30. Dream car? One of those zippy new Mercedes convertibles in electric blue. My dream car changes every year. I will forever miss my macho-sounding Toyota Supra that was stolen, stripped, and shot full of holes. It was a total dude magnet, BUT, then again, it was not so good for hauling around a little dude in a car seat.
