There are all sorts of lists – grocery lists, to-do lists, bucket lists. We're particularly interested in the latter, because a life well lived is one with an empty bucket list at the end. With that in mind, next week we're premiering the first episode of The List: 1,001 Car Things To Do Before You Die.

This new video series from the editors of Autoblog is the ultimate automotive to-do list brought to life. We've carefully selected two hosts, one with car culture pedigree and the other Your Average Joe. Together they'll dutifully check off everything we have on our list of 1,001 Car Things To Do Before You Die.

But The List isn't complete, and we need your help to finish it. Click here to submit ideas that would be on your list, and stay tuned next week for the premier episode.

      One thing that's on my list. Take an old-school big-block musclecar down the quarter mile at full tilt. Torino Talladega, 440 Roadrunner, Chevelle SS454, something with more cubic inches than God just to feel the crude brutishness of it.

      Buy a car with cash and not a loan.

      I would like to see a worthy 101. I don't have that much time.

      one on the list would have to be to own a new car that can hit the 200 mph speed.

      Looking forward to the list but PLEASE make every single one of the 1001 items attainable for anyone with a decent job. And maybe some tips on how to go about doing every one of the 1001. If going 200mph is one, which it probably should be, tell me where I should go to do it because short of getting a used Lamborghini or something similar on retirement I will never have the money to buy a car that can do it.

        Hehe the 200+ mph is on my list, but like you I doubt I'll ever own the machinery to do it! Would be nice to know where someone will let you drive their car @ 200mph!

          There's a company in South Florida who will do it. I can't remember their name but they use Lambos, Ferraris and other exotics. You get track and instruction time in each of their cars as well as a 200 mph run.

      I'd love to attend manufacturer racing and driving schools, like the Porsche ones and others

      I'm curious to see if those 1001 things are any good, because I can barely come up with 10.

      Meet Jesse Combs...oh wait...hmmm get a tour of Tim Allens Garage! Visit a taping of Top Gear UK, Drive the fast section of the Autobahn, High Speed Chase in a Lamborghini (See opening scene of Cannonball run), and did I say meet Jesse Combs?

        Been there, done that. I will say though, if you have a car with T-Tops it sure makes the process a lot easier.

      Drive without touching your cell phone for one day. Then two days. All the up to 1001.
