For the first time I'm jealous of your car's Magick. The Diablo was always a childhood fantasy. Wishing you plenty of fun times with the Devil's namesake.

V12 with a manual will keep you entertained and on your toes. Might be worth selling your soul to the Diablo.

The Atom 3 SC would be awesome to take to the track. I suspect it would be capable of MUCH more than you (or any sane human) would be willing to try. What class would they put you in??

I feel like this may have been mentioned on the thread before, but have you considered a Morgan Three-Wheeler? It may suffer the same size problems as a GT40, but it's a really neat car.

I did think of the Morgan 3, but it's backordered from now `til judgement day.

I like Morgans, but not the 3-wheeled models. I would love to have an original Plus 4 or 4/4 roadster from the mid 1960s.

Don't forget the Aero. Great DD for a Morgan.

I love the traditional Morgans but the Aero doesn't really do it for me. I've come very close to buying a new Roadster (with the Duratec V6) on many occasions. Awesome cars. I believe Morgan was brought up because of the new Chris Harris vid, it's pretty awesome, check it out.

LOL! My wife didn't know about them, the 3W, and she just looked at it and went "OMFG! I want that!" So now it's pretty much inevitable. rolleyes.gif

Yeah, I see the Piaggio 3-wheelers where I live too. I don't know about those - the people riding them look a little goofy - sort of like they aren't cool enough to have a "real" motorcycle.

To me they look like the kind of thing one would buy if one was too afraid to drive a regular scooter...

The video of the Morgan & the Caterham reminded me of a Lotus 7 "inspired" kit car I used to see all the time around town when I was in college. I always thought it was pretty cool until I noticed that it was actually built on a VW bug chassis. The bug engine was in the back like a normal bug (I think the rear boot was a bit bigger than the original Lotus 7, and the only thing under the engine cowl was the fuel tank and the battery. It even had a fake exhaust coming out the side of the engine cowl! Completely ruined it for me when I heard the bug engine fire-up... rolleyes.gif
