From Bucket Lists To Bucket Seats

Got a bucket list? I bet you do. Even if you’ve never made an official list, I’m sure you’ve got a few things you’d like to do before you “kick the bucket” as they say. The term “bucket list” was popularized by the movie of the same name.

The Bucket List is a 2007 comedy drama starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. They play two terminally ill men on a road trip to check off their wishlist of things they want to do before they die. The unlikely friends work through a list that includes activities, like fly over the North Pole, drive motorcycles on the Great Wall, visit the base of Mount Everest, drive a Shelby Mustang, and more. 

While having the means to simply get plopped down at the base of a Himalayan peak as they were in the movie would be amazing, let’s not forget a bucket list is more about the experience and the journey of getting to your destination rather than just checking things off a list. To make that journey an adventure, here are some thoughts on cars you might consider adding to your bucket list.

Porsche 911 Convertible

The Porsche 911 Convertible, the most technologically advanced 911 ever and possibly one of the easiest sports cars to drive, makes it a worthy contender for a place on any automobile enthusiast’s bucket list. And with, what has been described as a “soulful engine” by others, maybe you’ll also check “find soulmate” off that list.

Jaguar Convertible

While bucket lists are full of all sorts of adventurous activities, like skydiving, bungee jumping, and wrestling crocodiles, the Jaguar Convertible is the automotive equivalent of these adrenaline-pumping, heart-racing endeavors. With its flamboyant V8 performance and capable handling, the Jaguar is one of the most desirable sports cars on the road today. If you can’t strap yourself into a jet fighter, this is the next best thing.

Mercedes Convertible
