Well, I have a new car! Sometimes I think that selling the Formula Ford and finding this has taken no time at all, and other times I think it’s been an age. But before I reveal what I’ve bought, here are some of the cars I almost bought…
A Lancia Fulvia. It’s still for sale by the way from Targa Florio Classics http://www.targaflorioclassics.co.uk/
I also considered this Alfa from the same place.
And then there was the S2 Elise. I chased a few of these.
And I was very keen on Westfields, but dithered about and missed two very good cars.
I was quite keen on a VX220 but never actually had a test drive.
I went to see this nice little MR2. In fact we looked at a couple of these and I’d be much richer now if Id bought them (both).
And I considered getting another MX5, perhaps an 1800 Mk1 or even a Mk3 like TT.
After talking to Brian Marshall at MIRA I considered an old Porsche 944 and found this track day car on ebay. It’s still there.
And I contemplated getting another S2000 like Jacqui’s. But in the end I bought…
Actually, I haven’t taken delivery yet so I’d better not tempt fate.
So is it a classic? Well, it’s a modern classic.
Is it a roadgoing car? Yes, though we’ll be doing no holidays in it.
Is it ready to race? Yup sure is 🙂
