I’m reaching that period in car ownership (2 years in) where I decide if I’m truly in love. If I’m not, a new DD is at least on the distant horizon. We just recently got my wife a supertyduper practical Forester, so I’m thinking all sorts of crazy things. Two ideas that I just can’t shake are:
1. Torture myself and dd a classic. (2002, E30, Austin cooper, fiat/alfa)
2. Every time someone asks the “one car for the rest of your life” question. My answer is E39 M5. So I keep thinking “what am I waiting for?”. I don’t think they’ll ever get cheaper, and I’m super familiar with the car and all of its potential
repeated stabs to the face and genitals “headaches”.
One catch. If was to go the classic route, I would also purchase a pickup. First of all because I really want another ranger. Secondly because if I’m going to use a classic car everyday, I will need backup
constantly from time to time.
So do any/have any Oppo’s used a classic/modern classic as their daily driver? If so and you can sum up the experience in a sentence or two, please do!
