Ah, dreams. On reflection, these come in four categories:
1) The car I will drool over for a few months, read up on, then one day

2) The car I obsess about for years, buy a towtruck to carry, search
after hopelessly, desperately for another few years, rent a garage
twenty miles from home to hide it from my wife, save some more money,
and finally maybe one day when the stock market improves marginally,
actually buy. In my case, this is a 1957-63 Lotus Elite. (Going to

3) The car that is tantalizingly beyond reach -- expensive, scarce,
beautiful, utterly idiotic anywhere outside of a musuem. Not impossible
to imagine, but events only slightly less unlikely than winning the
lottery would have to converge: In my case, the Jaguar C-Type (circa
