The General Lee AKA 1969 Dodge Charger 440
Meet the most recognisable American muscle car of all times....... The 1969 Dodge Charger 440, The General Lee, which was made famous by the hit television series The Dukes of Hazzard which aired from 1979-1985.
In the show, this unbelieveable car completed some of the most amazing jumps, turns, crashes and chases in TV history. Over 300 Dodge Chargers were used on the show because once a car was jumped it was not used again. The shock of the impact completely destroyed the structural integrity of the car.

OMG!! What A Machine....
2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss.
All I can say is.... Oh My God.
I think I have finally found the one thing I would sell my kids, mother and grandmother for!
This is the latest spectacular addition to the Mercedes and Mclaren family, due for production in June 2009.
There is neither a roof nor a windscreen to separate the driver from the outside world so they and their passenger can enjoy unadulterated high-speed excitement. With 478 kW/650 hp the SLR Stirling Moss accelerates its V8 supercharged engine from standstill to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds, and has a top speed of 350 km/h
Named after British racing driver Stirling Moss, this exclusive supercar is limited to 75 units and is priced at 750,000 euros.
VeryHappyPig says OMG!!!
The Car That Changed Everything!
This is the most loved car, ever, the one and only Mini! When British Motor Company (BMC) made the first Mini in 1959, it was a instant hit! It was the first small simple city car. And simple was a understatement for the mini! The 850cc Classic was the Modern King at the time and was a much needed neccessity for every family! Then, in the 60's, John Cooper got his hands on one of these little beauties and made it a racing classic with a nifty 1275cc engine and adding a few bits of styling to the interior and exterior but always keeping the origianl body styling!
Mini had a few different manufacturers including Layland, Austin and Rover. No matter where you are around the globe everyones knows what a mini is!
These cars sold by the millions and millions and even today they're a pricy bit of metal! The original Mini stopped production in 2001 to make way for BMW's New Mini!
Fact:The mini roof was the same on the front and back so you could actually take a front off one Mini and weld it on to the back of another Mini!
They were and still are the most simple and most loved car ever!
Very Happy Pig wants one And does take bribes/donations!

The Audi R8 is a unique mechanical, high-tech, extremely drivable, and original machine, making it intriguingly (if that's a word!) exotic for those seeking more than just raw performance.
The R8 is undoubtedly fast. Sixty miles per hour comes up in 4.4 seconds and top speed of 187 mph arrives not much later.
And even better it’s so comfortable you could run over anything up to a small horse and not even notice!!
The R8, being Audi's first supercar is a masterpiece and will only cost you around €170,000 - €180,000 new......
VeryHappyPig is now in love.... with the Audi R8!
The 1982 Lada Riva 1200cc!
Oh yes, heres a little cracker, as reliable as a dead dog and as stylish as Bill Gates. This was the car never ever to, not on your life, not even if it meant walking bare foot over broken glass mixed with tumb-tacs that were on fire, with a herd of hungry hippos chasing you, be caught dead in!
She was the envy of all school yard jokes and was communist russian built and really should have stayed there!
Hmm what good can we say about these Lada's, mmmmmm oh yes there's feck all of them left but I'd really like to have one just to say yes I do own a Lada Riva and she's a little gem!
Extras Included: Seats and a steering wheel and a odd seat belt if your lucky, oh and maybe lights but we can't guarantee anything!
I really want one of these and I'd say everyone deep down would like to have one just for novelty purpose!!

Damn Sexy....... The Astra TwinTop
The Astra TwinTop is capable and desirable. Cheap to buy and run, it's an enjoyable drive too. It is both a sleek, elegant coupe and a stylish Cabriolet. A superb hard top convertible which even has its owners club website, (a little freaky, I know!!).
For just over €35,000, you can own a car which has stylish design, great roof mechanism, smooth engines, sharp driving, quality cabin and rear passenger space.... And to top it all off, you'll look damn sexy in it!
For its combination of looks, value and performance the TwinTop is very hard to beat..... and Miss Piggy would very much like one..... in silver, if possible!!!

Cool??? not really.... Cute???? hell yeah!!
The Very Happy Pig will not agree but Miss piggy is loving the Fiat 500.
First introduced in the 1950's, it was relaunched in 2008 with chic new styling, vast accessories and quirky looks both inside and outside (not to mention the retro colours it comes in!)
Taking a quantum leap forward in terms of safety, technology, comfort and equipment it now comes with ABS anti-lock braking, remote central locking, seven airbags, electric front windows and door mirrors, an MP3-compatible CD player and Dualdrive electric power steering fitted as standard even on entry level models.
Pricing is in or around €18,000 - €22,000 depending, obviously, on spec etc.
Not bad for an adorable little bubble!!! Miss Piggy just wishes it came in pink!!!!
