List include

1. Pre 1990 Honda CRX
2. BMW 80' 635
3. 1970's Datsun 260z
4. 1960's Volvo 1800 and

...5 the only car I would keep for more than 5 years...the Honda NSX!!!!!

Only downside is I do 15k a year and could be waiting a long on a hard shoulder for recovery (save for the Honda's which have the bullet proof vtec engines !)

Mrs thinks I am having mid life crisis !!
option 3 and 4

But how and a delorean

i remember my dad had an lovely old 450 slc, the only time i saw him close to tears was when he had to sell it to put more money into the business. i have never seen another on the road since or for sale for that matter, as have looked a few times.
