Right, I've been up since 4AM catching a flight to Amsterdam, the missus is watching 2 pints of lager & a packet of crips pls, I have drunk 2.3 Stellas and to be frank I be bored.

So, gimme the car you loved as a "kid" (up to 17 is allowed) that you always wanted but haven't owned yet. Oh, and 911 doesn't count as thats too obvious. Mine is, well I have 2, so is / are:

Lotus Sunbeam (saw 1 at Sainsbury's the other day :drool: )
Lotus Carlton / Omega :drool: :drool:

Skyline was the car I always wanted - now got one.

Other than that, the General Lee or a Jensen Interceptor.

Oooh - or the Jag XJS - like in The Saint.

Since I first played Gran Turismo - i.e. when I were a lad and first discovered what "performance" Jap cars were all about.

Before that I thought fast cars were Lotus, Porsche, Lambo and Ferrari.

You are lucky, when I were a (fairly yound) lad I thought fast cars were called XR3i. True.
