1965 Lamborghini 350GT which I fell in love with at the Louwman Museum, a convertible Triumph Herald Vitesse and a 1960’s Ducati race bike!

    Thank you Mrs GP – a 60’s theme, eh? That’s likely to be a popular choice.

All cars I’ve owned and sold on……..my BMW 3.0CSL, my DBS Vantage and my works Mini Cooper Rally car

    Familiar tale, Brgjohn. I suspect we might have a few ‘Dad’s old cars’ listed here too! Thank you, A.

Pagani Huayra, Aston Martin one-77 and a Lotus Carlton

    Thank you Stevejay. I’m sure the garage would be long enough for the One-77.

Bloodhound LSR would be my choice, would have to go in sideways.

    Ha ha, good point. You might also have to judge the braking accurately if driving it in, even sideways! Does it do handbrake turns?

Rover SD1 Vitesse (family) Lotus Elise sport 220 (sporty) Mustang S550 GT V8 (toury)

    Nice selection. I especially like the Vitesse in there. We doesn’t see many of those about these days, eh?

January 25, 2020 at 11:21 am

Ferrari 330 GTC, “the best road Ferrari ever” (Paul Frere and Phil Hill), Daimler 250 V8, the best classic on modern roads with an engine that can be pushed to over 1200 bhp, Porsche 911 converted to EV., saving the planet with style.. Got the first two with the third on the way. Living the dream

    Living the dream is indeed what it’s all about. Sticking the dream in a museum is not what we’re about, eh?

Can we just take the garage? We’re pretty happy with our existing cars. Mind you, there’s always room for something 1970s from the British Leyland stable but far too many to choose from.

Yes indeed, lovely looking garage. Maybe a whistling Allegro would fit your bill?

Money no object:-
1. Vauxhall 30/98. Practical, do the shopping, bit of vintage racing, bit of trialling…..
2. Lotus Seven Series 1 Climax. Just the sweetest driving machine ever…..Yes I do have one!
3. Lola T70 MK3 coupe. Just what I’d like to do Classic Le Mans in – so pretty.

Limited budget, say £30,000. Makes the choice a bit different…..
1. Landrover 110 County. Probably a 300TDi. Practical, rugged, reliable fun.
2. Peugeot 205 1.9GTi. The best classic pocket rocket.
3. Ford Model A. Ever tried vintage trials? Amazing fun, and the A is tough, reliable and parts availability is truly amazing.

Thanks Taruffi. Money was no object, but it looks like you’d have just as much fun with your limited budget!
