From Bruisers to Beauties: What’s Your Dream Car?

Whether it started with the nearly imperceptible shape and accompanying wail of a passing Italian exotic, hours spent staring down the lines of a German poster car, or your first time slogging through mud that no machine should be able to transverse — all the cars of our dreams have their origins. My first dream car — and most car people will have at least a few in their life time — began to take form upon hearing my first burbley V8. It was a passing sound that is attached to no vehicle in my memory, but it stuck with me. It wasn’t until I saw the lines of a 1966 Pontiac Tempest GTO that the form took shape. When I heard that boisterous engine while staring at a GTO, I knew that car had worked itself into my mind forever. Since that time, there have been other vehicles that have gotten lodged in my brain. They have included slinky numbers from Italy, brutal turbocharged beasts from Japan and more than a few cheeky British roadsters. In the end, the Pontiac remains.  On so many levels it doesn’t make sense as a car to own. It is from a completely different time when safety was secondary and horsepower was taking its thrown as king in America. To me, part of the point of dream cars is for them to remain just that — an untainted dream. We want to hear from you. What is your dream car? What caused it to become lodged in your mind? Have you ever owned your dream car? Let us know in the comments below. South End Patch

Do You Want ‘Roadrunner’ or ‘Dream On’ for State Rock Song?

A little more than a week after a bill was filed to make “Roadrunner” by The Modern Lovers the state’s official rock song, two legislators responded by filing their own bill to make Aerosmith’s “Dream On” the anthem. “(“Dream On” is a) classic ballad that’s all about holding on to your dreams and seizing opportunity,” Rep. Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury) said. Cutler is co-sponsoring the bill with Rep. James Cantwell (D-Marshfield).   The two songs represent very different stories, both about rock and roll, and about Massachusetts. One is a buoyant tribute to the thrill of being young in Massachusetts, speeding down Route 128. The other is a wistful look back by a Boston band that was just at its beginnings as one of the most famous in rock history. When asked, Gov. Deval Patrick told reporters Monday that he hasn’t considered which song, if any, he prefers for the state rock song.   What do you think? Should “Roadrunner” become the state rock song, should “Dream On,” or should neither? South End Patch
