Told my wife months back I wanted to make a patio at one of our rentals that was the exact dimensions of that tank, with darker pavers for the .50 and all. Then watch google earth. See if anyone came to inspect....[/QUOTE]

That is so awesome

1995 McLaren F1...weighs 2500 lbs ...350 lbs less than a 986 . It is the very last of the all analog, no ABS, no power steering, no traction control/ PSM supercars . It will continue steep appreciation for those reasons , as future maintenance decades from now will be easier than today's " obsoleted in a few years " software / tech in latest vehicles, like the 918, LaFerrari or P1.

And to top it all off , a central seating/ steering position ...how cool is that ? Won't ever see that again, as today's typical buyers are too weight challenged to wiggle / straddle/ squeeze into a middle driver seat .

You know, half of these cars I had to look up. Y'all have some exquisite taste in cars!!

No 1984 Cadillac El Dorado?? Not one fully-loaded 1976 Plymouth Turismo??? Those are classics! (to the son of a union ironworker, I guess....) 1976 Pinto Wagon FTW!!!

I rarely visit here since selling the Boxster, but seeing the responses to the OP made me think. Since the 10 years that have passed since originally purchasing my used Boxster S then selling it on to Sgt Brad (A Class Act), my priorities have changed immensely. So to answer the original question......Spend Unlimited Time with the kids and family enjoying motorsports together, like I recently did with my youngest who I had later in life. He begged for that Dirt Bike for 5 damn years:



Those moments simply cannot be bought.

Now onto the self absorbed side, the one-off Jag XJ13 would do nicely:

And now, you're finally "getting it".

From a young guy as it is, I can assure you this is a very good answer!
