BMW Bavaria
It was my first car and the first thing I'll buy when I hit the lotto.


I'd be happy rocking a DB4 too.


An older 911 or 912 is something I may get one day.

Silver is my favorite color on a car.

GT40 MKII.

They've sure got a lot of those old Beetles around here. I'd never seen a Baja in person until I got here. Now I see them constantly.

McLaren F1. Version and color negotiable, but I guess the LM (which only came in orange) would be my favored one.

My money no object car when I win a lottery would be a CitroŽn DS Dťcapotable Usine (factory convertible)
1966ds21convertible.jpg

For a more economical and slightly more practical car it would be a CitroŽn Ami 6.
CitroenAmi6.jpg

For an even more practical, but still very technically interesting car a CitroŽn GS wagon. I already own the updated hatch version of this car, but I prefer the looks of the earlier car.

Caterham/Lotus Super 7 kit... probably stick a Hayabusa engine in it if I feel really adventurous.

129 made, no more than 128 left .




or an alloy body xk120, about 250 made, 175 left




or, a 100M wouldn't suck too bad either, although I would prefer aqua over white.
