This is something of a problem.

First up: WRX STi.

I’ve wanted one since about as long as I can remember. A local example caught my eye recently. Caveat emptor was the prevailing wisdom of the day:

Next up is the Ural.


I’m solidly entrenched in the “two wheels good” as a mountain biker (ok, ambitious but rubbish reformed roadie). My back is nearly shot- my next (fat) bike will probably be my last stop before a recumbent (*hurk*). I’ll need to get my two/three wheel fix somehow. I think this is the answer. Again, we’ve discussed this before:

It just looks like so much fun. It’s kid haulage-compatible and stable enough as to not further fuck with my back. That’s a win-win.


Next is the curious MGB. It’s just so...

British racing green. Perfect.

I was, however, confronted recently with the reality of ownership:


Last but certainly not least, is the Sunbeam Alpine.

It’s not something that I’ve ever really been attached to, but this has been for sale near my office for two years. I drool over it twice a day, every day. The more I see it, the more I grow to like it. It’s getting to the point that I’m afraid one day it’s not going to be there.


What to do?
