Not a weird topic at all and it is one we’ve discussed a lot on his forum.
For me, any old car with a long floor-mounted gas pedal and a carburetor.

Bonus points for:

-No console

-Manual choke

-Ignition on the left side

-Manual transmission

-No floor starter.  Not my thing but I get it.

My favorite cars for cranking are small European carbureted cars from the '70s and '80s.
For me, the most important aspects are:

.) the sound of the engine starter
.) the engine behavior when cold (sputtering and stalling)
.) manual choke (and preferably manual transmission).

Many european cars from that era have all of those features, that's why I like them. So my absolute favorite cars of the era are:

.) Various Fiat's and related italian cars (Panda, Uno, Y10, 128)
.) Ford Fiesta mk1 and mk2, Renault 5/Clio, VW Golf mk1, Peugeot 205, Opel Corsa mk1, Mini.

I like a little less 2-cylinder cars (Fiat 126 and 500, 2CV) for the different sound of their starters and engines. I don't particularly like Japanese cars of the era because they often lack some of the above features.

Although not ideal, I also like classic american cars from the '60s and '70s (like those often used by Nicole on CrankAndPump), because although lacking manual choke and transmission, they usually have a nice cranking sound and a sputtery engine behavior.

I don't like at all fuel injected cars. I'm almost indifferent to cranking in a fuel injected car.

I am with Dudedillio regarding any old car with long floor-mounted gas pedal attached to a worn-out carb.  Of particular interest are 1960s Mopar products (love those whiny starters), and late 60s-early 70s GM Olds and Buicks.   Nicole had a 1975 (I think) Buick Wildcat convertible, and CCL had a 1972 Olds 98.  Loved those cars.

Many of my personal experiences are with Chrysler products.   I wrote several stories featuring them in The Coil Wire-Real Life Stories section.

Murmur,
Even without the manual choke, it was always fun to see a woman dealing with a stuck choke.  My mom had to use a pencil or screwdriver more than once to get going.

My personal favorite is the VW’s and goats and a few GM Chrysler and Ford products one of my personal preferences for the car as you’ll read in all the intros to my story is every car must have soft leather upholstery and the women wearing black leather gear as well no matter the car it has to have leather preferribly black leather i love leather my personal car has it and also I guess this is being from the 21 st century but personally I like the modern day gas pedals better than the floor mounted ones the reason being their leg foot etc can move further and as a result the bounce is better that’s just a personal preference as for the mother son thing that wasn’t always that way that came about eight years ago I use to envision them by themselves then I got to feeling bad for them and it was around that time I decided to become an elementary ed major and I started thinking if I feel so bad for them I should give them someone to talk to I thought friend no husband no because the husband would just fix it and the friend if it was a female she would be in the same boat and if it was a male he would just fix it therefore the mother child scenario was born and the reason I chose a boy instead of a girl is that guys when they get older take care of women I wanted someone where a woman could crank and reassure them the car would start to take her mind off her car so much and make her feel better that is why I always put them in a good mood and make it where the child is clingy but she loves it and wouldn’t have it any other way

Great topic!
For me it's all about the cars around in my youth.  I'm 47 and the cars that I find most appealing are American cars and trucks from the late 60's through the early 90's.  For obvious reasons the ones with lots of legroom (without consoles) and minimally sized dashes and column shifters are the best. Bench seats are a bonus as well, as you can feel the movement of the woman behind the wheel if sitting close enough.  It's all about an unobstructed view to watch the struggle.  The vehicles in this era aren't known for their reliability either, fuel injected cars included.  I love that teasing, almost catching sound as the engine cranks.

One of my personal favorites is the early 80's Chevy Citation with an anemic 2.5 liter Iron Duke 4 cylinder.  I absolutely love the sound of the starter on this car!  An automatic with a bench seat leaves the view of the pedals wide open from any seat in the car.  With it being a front wheel drive, the transmission hump it almost non existent too.  GM also made rebadged sister cars of this Chevy... The Pontiac Phoenix, Oldsmobile Omega and Buick Skylark are equally stimulating for the same reasons.

I'm also a big fan of late 60's through mid 80's Ford and Chevy trucks for the same reason I listed above.  There are a few euro brands I like as well... like older VW's and Volvo's.  Mainly because I like the sound of their starters.  It's one reason my wife and I own a '73 Volvo.

Finally if you share my interests in PP vehicles, check out my wife cranking and pumping on our YouTube page.
ENJOY!!!  -Nylonppfan

I I like your videos.
Would you and your lovely wife be willing to make some sans nylons? Like with flip-flops and other sandals while cranking the Volvo?

Great topic indeed!
I am a bit a guy of extremes.
1) I love the small european cars from the 60's, 70's and 80's with carburetors and manual chokes. Both 2 or 4 cylinders and especially the French and Italian ones. I have preference for the Citro?n 2cv and the Fiat 500/126 but must admit that the Renault 4 and 5 models make a great cranking sound with their whining starters and easy to flood engines.
2) But I also love the U.S. cars from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's if with carburetor from any brand. The great thing about U.S. cars is the sound of the starters, the number of cylinders doesn't really care as most of the engines produce a great sound. These cars would be equipped with benches.

The common point between these types of cars is that the smaller as well as the big U.S. models offer a great view of the legs of the lady desperately trying to start her car.. What I also like is that I would be able to sit close to the short dressed lady wearing high heels with or without stockings. She would be nervous that her car doesn't start after a few tries but would still feel safe with a tall and strong man sitting next to her. I would always use the middle seat of the bench.

Below some examples of my preferred cars and scenarios:

Best case scenario would be a carbuteted, flathead ( valve in block ) inline 6 cylinder engine. Bench seat, long floor mounted gas pedal, automatic transmission. The thinner stamped steel flywheel of an auto trans car makes for a more higher pitched, more "crisp" cranking sound. Extra credit for the ealier 6 volt electrical system, which lasted till about 1955-56. Cars so equipped would date from the early 50's through the mid 60s...and this combo was what "hooked" me as a small child in the mid 60s.

Even so, any auto trans, carbureted, out of tune inline 6 engine with an out of adjustment carburetor will do. The end-most cylinders suffer from poorer fuel distribution as the fuel/air mix didn't hold its atomization well going through long cold intake runners and made for a hard or no-start unless the mixture was rich enough. With a non working choke or dirty carb, it often wasn't. Flathead designs were even more problematic this way: Long torturous paths through cold cast iron between the carburetor and cylinder.

Add a girl who knows nothing of all this and is a "turn the key and push the gas a little" type, and you have the makings for quite a show.

Nicole used to have two Buicks the one you talking about is the red Buick Skylark Convertible it was a 73,it had the 327 V8 she had said once but sounded allot like an old Chevy with that 350 5.7 Small Block V8 when it was cranking!She also had that 70's Dodge double cab truck which was a Chrysler product,sadly all vehicles from the old archives were sold,she now has just the 86 Monte Caro,the Mustang,the Olds,and the newest one recently added to the lineup an older Honda Accord looks like which is something new to what she normally shoots in.
