The cult car most European enthusiasts would love to own is an American classic - the Ford Mustang.
More than one in three (37 percent, to be exact) of respondents to a recent poll of 75 046 drivers in seven European countries said the car they dreamed of owning was the iconic Pony Car.
It ranked even higher in Austrian (42 percent) and Spain (41 percent) - that's double the number who named the next most desirable car, the ultra-rare mid-engined BMW M1 of the late 1970s.
The survey polled 30 145 drivers in Germany, 15 108 in France, 11 797 in Italy, 6245 in Spain, 5002 in Belgium, 3739 in the Netherlands and 2745 in Austria.
Twenty percent admitted to a passion for BMW's angular Group 5 homologation special, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, of which only 456 were made.
Third was the original Volkswagen Beetle, with 11 percent of the overall vote.
Italians and Germans seemed particularly fond of the Beetle (14 percent), closely followed by respondents in Austria (11 percent), France, Spain and Belgium (10 percent each), and the Netherlands (nine percent).
It was followed by two more 'people's cars' - the original Mini and the Citroen 2CV - and a concept, the Volkswagen Bulli, a battery-powered six-seater mini-Kombi first shown at the 2011 Geneva motor show.
Although plans to put the Bulli into production were later shelved, five percent of the respondents - including one in seven Germans and one in 10 Austrians - named it as their dream car.
The rest of the top 10 comprised unusual, sporty-looking little coupés (except for the Renault 4 in ninth!) with the Opel Manta and Ford Capri getting four percent each, and the Renault 4 and Fiat X1/9 two percent each.
And, just to show you how seriously Europeans take their automotive icons, one percent, or 751 people, named the ridiculously basic cardboard-bodied East German Trabant as their dream car.
