First thing that popped in my head.
It would be cool to bring something radical -- but think about fuel availability. I would take something designed to run on crap/sulfury/leaded fuel, like what you might see in Russia or South America.
I definitely wouldn't take a modern computer-controlled diesel or anything super complicated with tight tolerances.
VW Gol or something like that?
Improving the signal-to-noise ratio
"Artificial Intelligence usually beats natural stupidity." <---- If we apply that logic to driverless cars, the future of commuting should be just fine.
Lets see. 1947. They didn't even have any freeways yet, a lot of roads were still dirt, not pavement, the fuel was leaded and low octane, diesel was difficult to find. Yeah, I'll take my chances in this :
I'm more stealthy. Gimme a '47 Buick or some such, put 4 wheel disc brakes on it, beef the engine (still running on leaded fuel of the time) and give it modern, but high profile tires and some killer suspension. I've always loved sleepers.
Can I bring a car back with me, too?

Other than the fuel, supercars would work just fine.
OTOH, I'd still probably take something like a Range Rover. Luxury and offroad ability and adjustible suspension height. Would definitely still stand out and get attention.
I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.
Surely from 1947 to now they would stick soft touch material back into it...
In all seriousness, this. It can handle multiple terrain variants, and it looks futuristic as hell which was all the rave back then anyway..
