I'm a dreamer. That's stupid to even mention. You aren't a car guy if you aren't a dreamer. Two words for you: Barn finds. Enough said, moving on.
|Barn find found at http://aussieexotics.com. I guess someone hid it away so nobody would see those stripes.|
|An old Maserati Merak, could be found for say, $25K if condition was irrelevant..|
I figure, drive till it breaks and then have AAA tow it to the living room for display.
Now, I'm just $25K short.
I'm on a limited budget. Operating in relative car guy poverty isn't easy. "Poor" might be an over statement; it's complicated. I've got things that take priority over cars, like food and shelter. For the record, I do resent them, but the wife doesn't like sleeping in the car as much as I do.. That said, no amount of discretionary cash would make me a sports car waster. Waste, as in using a special machine on tasks beneath it. It's just bullshit how Porsche commercials show show a lady driving a GT2RS to get firewood, or a Boxster Speedster to pick up new plants at the garden store. I'd never misuse a real Porsche for such tasks no matter how much disposable cash I had. Clearly that's a job for an Icon, Ford Raptor or Land Rover, if you can get it started.
|I'd mention the Cayennes but there's really nothing funny to say about them.|
Although my father would suggest a Unimog, I'm going to vote for a Mercedes G-Wagon.
No reason you can't be classy when picking up 2x4s at Home Depot (short ones anyway).
|I could think of better ways to spend $50 than on a Z but you get my point.|

|This 1971 LT1 "Survivor" Corvette is about as original as they get right down to the tires|
The catch is OEM parts can get pricier than aftermarket after a car gets too cool or old.
|Lets just say today, if I bought a new, perfect car. I'd consider a ZR1.|
You think they have zero down, no payments for 90 days and 2% financing?
