Get lots of those B things and V8 crates.

Roger's not allowed to answer as probably on his way there!

Roger? No one specified which currency...
I'm sure you're there, in SOMETHING!
Be it Dinars, Shekels, or HK$?

At least you share your money with us mere mortals... Racing all that money. Love it.

The budget is 15 million pounds .Away you go.Less forty quid for the Ace Cafe on 30th December.
Last list is different .How much to extract the Chaparral from Midland Texas.Big hole in budget.How about 150S Lago instead of T26.Mustang Ford France(Walton's got a good one so that should not be expensive)

Oh dear, big hole in the budget then....the Chapparral is a 'how much will it take to buy it' situation. The A4 would be similar.

Ok in that case, complete change of plan:

Lola T70
Mustang
Maser 250F (lacking imagination I know, but plenty of racing to be had)
Bizza Strada
FN LeMans Rep
Porsche 906

That should do it, might be a bit under...?

They don't come out much though, do they? And most that do seem to be Cameron Millar builds.

Competition Cars-
I'll start with a Costin bodied Lister
For Pre 63 Morgan Plus 4 Supersports
Got to have a Lotus- so a 23B or maybe the 30 CTL have
275GTB Compezione- hopefully spelt right
Cobra
Lola T70 MK3b
Lola T290, Alfa, Osella or similar 2 litre open sportsracer
Cologne Capri with spare GAA (How much for that )
Capri RS2600 (Classic Le Mans eligible)
Sierra Cosworth RS500 GpA (There will be race for them sometime!)
Ex works Mk1 Escort rally car
A Gp B car- probably factory 205T16

Road cars? Pre War Aston for starters. A Gordon Keeble, early Pantera, Triumph 2.5pi or Cortina Savage Estate. Peanuts I know, and need also to complete my set of Ford AVO cars with a Twink and Mexico. Then would spend time and money building a collection of as many road going 'Homologation Specials' as I could. Starting with Mk1 Louts Cortina, unless anyone can suggest an earlier car that was produced for same purpose? Maybe need two of each- one standard and one as used in competition.

Plus of course somewhere to keep them all, a big rig to haul them about, and a second base in warmer climate....
