Work, kids, bills, and chores are all a packaged deal now. So from time to time, you need an escape, even if it's just a short reverie. If you love cars, nothing brings you back to those carefree childhood days faster than seeing the iconic cars you wish you had when you were a kid.

Whether you were drooling over your neighbor's new cool car, cars from your favorite TV shows or movies, or rare classic cars, they all had a special place in your heart. Your bedroom walls were covered with car posters and you tuned in every week to see The General Lee and Magnum P.I.'s Ferrari 308 GTS. You couldn't help wishing for the day you could get behind the wheel of one of these bad boys.

So sit back and relax for a drive down memory lane in these memorable cars that helped define your childhood and will possibly kickstart your midlife crisis into high gear.
