Kids my age suffered from too much of a good thing, with Mustangs, Stingrays, XKEs, Ford GT40s, Chapparals, Deuce Coupes. But none were as cool as this.

I liked a lot of the Bond cars. The Lotus Esprit was a memorable one for me.

No, what you need is a Hennessey Venom GT 265+ MPH top speed. 1,200 HP.

I'll have the Hennessey as my Sunday car, the Lotus for Saturday and this BAC Mono as my everyday runabout.

Yeah, but you gotta have the 'stache to go with it:



Odd story: one night long ago I was watching Magnum P.I. at home when my dad walks in. He looks at the TV and says "Oh, hello, Tom." My dad taught at USC in 1968, and Tom Selleck was one of his students.

you made the right choice. the Focus is a much better looking car.
also, unless its a lambo or some other exotic sports car, 4 doors > 2 doors

The Focus is a great drivers car although I think its more handsome than beautiful. Crazy good value at the moment which I couldn't turn down. The Mito was fun to drive but has a VERY firm ride. Very economical too for a sports car but expensive to insure.
