I like the idea of these two but have no direct or even hearsay experience:

I've very little knowledge either to say which "is the one to have" of those ranges.

Love the Panhard clapping windscreen wipers. Any other cars have this mad design. Even so not in my dream garage.

I would not be able to have 3 dream cars as it would be impossible to select without changing them later on for a better dream.

However for starters

Fly Yellow Dino 246 (Ferrari)
Flaminia Touring convertible (light metalic blue)
Citroen SM (Silver)

What I have which I would not swap as it is a real world choice

Fulvia HF1600
Fulvia Sport 1600
Flavia Vignale

MY 1600HF IN HEARTBEAT GARAGE

I remember my mum having a Panhard the same as that but RHD in the 70s, she always said it left most things behind at the lights, and she could get a bale of hay for the horse in the boot Shocked

Fiat Barchetta - that's a good suggestion and another I seriously considered once. Lovely looking little car. Lottery win fantasy? Have to include a Lancia Flaminia Supersport Zagato and the late 60's Maserati Ghibli. Oh, not forgetting the Bizzarini 3500 or the 246 Dino. Back into almost the real world, yes, I like the idea of a 356 (type A) very much. It's a back to front Fulvia. Hmmmm, dark grey I think with red leather................

The 356 is a very pretty car.....

I would have an F40, B20GT and a Fiat Dino Spider to tick as many boxes as possible with 3 cars (and without going into the million pound car pool).

But don't you think the 356 body is more grown up than the wheels it is sitting on???

Now, let us be sensible.  A Lancia can only be changed for another Lancia.  I would happily swap my Fulvia Sport for a B20 (regret ever selling it) or another Aprilia.  Sliding pillar suspension gives such precise, light steering and a wonderful lock.

Looks good on these (are they the same wheels without the hubcaps?)

Gorgeous little car. Tim, the 356 for me is one of the few cars that I think look good with the wheels tucked away under the bodywork. The other example I can think of is the early series E-type (and D of course). Now there's a new challenge by David wheeler - only being allowed to swap for another Lancia. Blimey............makes you realise how many great cars they've produced. For the time being I'll go with my Flaminia Supersport Zagato. Hmmmmmm, possibly in Aston racing green on a nice set of Borranis......

To tighten the challenge howabout you can only swap your Lancia for another Lancia loosely in the same price bracket???!!! If I sold all my Lancias I could not still afford a Flam SS Z which I agree would have to be up there with the most beautiful of cars.

However, would it provide the automotive pleasure in line with its aesthetics???

Yes - that was an insane flight of fancy. In that case, maybe a series 1 all alloy Fulvia Zagato.

Showing my usual leaning towards Berlinas, it would have to be an Aurelia or a Flaminia Berlina.

Stanley’s post earlier today reminds me why I haven’t yet contributed to this thread! Here are two photos taken last week of my Series 1 all alloy Fulvia Zagato. I wouldn't change it.

I swapped a 1st series Fulvia Zagato for a 3rd Series B2O, which I swapped for a FIAT Dino Spyder, which I swapped for a a life in the S Of France

Which one's best ?

All are fabulous and worth trying !
