As it says on the tin, as well as your MX5, what other classic would you want to have on your drive?

My Eunos is summer use only (will be back on the road in 4 weeks time hopefully), and my daily runner is a 7 year old 206 GTi, not a bad Pug, pretty rapid and not heavy on petrol, but I'm hankering after another classic which would also need to be my daily runner AND live outside, hmmmm......

Another TR6......


We had one before we had the MX5's - a 1971 TR6 in signal red, beautiful car, awesome noise too from the twin upswept exhausts, I've been keeping an eye on them recently on Ebay and the prices have come down again, so maybe one day we'll get another!

Would also love to have another Scirocco Scala again (in white - the one with the 8v GTI engine), have been seeing some crop up on the Bay, and have been very tempted.

Once we have finished the 2 project MX5s and have some more room back, then I'd love to see any of the above on the driveway!

LOTS! Anything with racing pedigree really.

I came close to buying a GT6 and also an old 911, but I'll have to hold off for a while before I get something special!

I think if I had garage, it would be full of all sorts of semi-wreck classics...

Shame Caroll Shelby never took a shine to the MX5 MK1, that would have been interesting, the Flyin Miata but with the stamp of Shelby on it.
1) Shelby Cobra 427
2) Sunbeam Tiger
3) Alfa Remeo Montreal
4) Triumph GT6 Mk3 (had a Vitesse MK2)
5) Fiat Coupe 20V turbo (almost bought this but went for the MX5)

and the list goes on and on......
I guess I should just fit a SC V8 small block into the MX and stop dreaming.
