pure fantasy, 906, ex Bradley and I know where it is sat doing nothing but rotting
908/3, 917 chassis 20 and no chance of that whatsoever.

A good 8C and GTO takes you over Budget.

How about a comp 250SWB and the 8C, keeps you in and the SWB is as good a car as GTO and have you noticed some of the odd people who own those GTO's.
Much more Historic Street Cred with SWB.

Mk 1 Mini cooper S

Morris 1000 traveler (or mini traveler/van/pickup, cant decide!)
MGB GT V8
Ford lotus cortina
Austin A40
Lotus 7
Lotus 11
Austin 7 (why not!!)

Or course many of them prepared for racing/sprinting/hillclimbing/rallying, with the amount of money won, for some it may be worth purchasing two, one for the road and one for the track!!

I'd settle for a scratch-card win and enough cash to make my Spit competitive and run a few races (maybe fix some of the 'speed holes')

John,

Take your point on the GTO/SWB choice. To be honest the SWB is probably my choice as an all rounder so unless Westfieldbend hands over his spare 14m to bolster my fortunes, the GTO is out.

I'm not really a big single seater fan so I think, given the restrictive budget set by John one really needs . .

period Transporter with modern chassis/underpinnings, so you actually get there on time

'66 MK1 transit cabbed, 2009 4wd LWB chassis, bespoke motorhome.

a decent prewar car ( one I can fit in! )
a 50's sports car (nothing too common, or uncompetitive, preferably English . . .DBR of sorts perhaps, or if thats too pricey a TR3! or a Lola MK1, or the right 356
a pre66 GT for International racing GT40 is the obvious choice, or a Lola MK6 just to be daft about it! maybe a DB4GT, or a 26R
a club special for halfing a bloody god laugh ( Rochdale will do for now!)
and the Cortinas I already have, 1 race 1 road/rally
COlogne Capri
MK1 Escort Broadspeed . .just a 1300 GT will do

may as well have a scimitar, as a nod to the old man in fact on this budget I could probably have them all!

John Whats the problem with the Frazer Nash, father in law had one and was a flyer, he then lost his head completely and bought a Healey Silverstone which has thankfully gone to Germany! If you insist on taking it out then what about a Targa Florio instead although would settle for 250 swb, but I'm in agreement with Sir Jack and not a big fan of the red cars from Modena.

DB4GT Zagato [a real one with real history] Alfa GTA and TZ2.Lola T70,no,not a new one! A 250SWB should fit into the workshop of the 800,000Euro property I've fallen in love with,Min's from Spa,lot's of room for friends to stay for the weekend.The change could be used for something similar to Zef's idea,New Retro Look transporter with living accommodation,sort of thing as seen on Top Gear,the one with the sports car slung underneath! Should leave enough to live on plus help out one or two charities.Oh,and some carrots for Rudolf.

Although the 250 SWB is a great car and the Breadvan is great through it's quirkiness the 250 GTO has to be the one for me for it's fantastic look and lines from all angles.
With the little bit of change a 3.8 Mk II Jag - something to go to the secure storage in to drool over the GTO from time to time - and a quarter of midget gems to munch during the drooling.
Anything left then goes into a '65 Mustang or Falcon to race.

Expect my lottery winnings may only stretch to the midget gems!

the trouble with fancy fiats and some other exotica is they're not very usable . . . I like the idea that, what ever your budget or choice, your not afraid to use it, and you actually can.

even a modest sports cars almost a waste of time on the road, legally at leas!t
