    A Rothmann's Porsche 956 for the same money as the Spartan track car I posted yesterday

    ^^^ I used to have a 1962 Austin Healey 3000 Mk II (BT7 early Mk II 2+2 with side curtains and 3 Webber carbuerators). Everything broke on that car . . .

    This is a stock internet pic, not my actual car, which I sold in about 1979 or 1980. But mine was even this color:

    At the time I bought the Austin Healey in about 1978 for $2,500 (it needed a lot of things, including paint), I had the opportunity to buy a '65 Aston Martin DB5 for $5,000. The only thing wrong with it is that the window in the passenger's side door was missing, and it was probably going to be hard to find one. Damn I wish I bought that car.

    I don't wish I still had any one of the cars I used to own, but like you, I can think of a few I wish I'd bought.

    I'd kinda like to have my '67 Fiat Dino Spyder back. But I made money on it. I bought in in 1981 for $7,250 and sold it in 1988 for $38,000. It was not running and had a broken rear axle when I sold it.
