C&SC is actually what turned me on to the DB4 in the first place.

Couldn't find a SIII that I liked.

Yes me too, but I know that is not possible so am content with my model of Nick Mason's 250 GTO and my own more humble Italian Classics, 1750 GTV, Giulia Super, and Fiat 124 sports (AC).  However, if it were possible there would be a few more additions to the garage.

I'm with you Andrew. Have been agonising about this for a few hours and am struggling to get below 20 "essentials". Sure I'd love a GT40 or a 1963 GTO, but could I commute in it, or pay the bills on it? There is no point in me having a dream classic if I can't fulfil the dream of using it. A lot.

 

Ah, but the point of the question is that it is a 'dream' classic. If you could afford to buy whatever classic you fancied, then in your dream world you would also have enough money to run it and suffer whatever it throws at you.

Good point, well made. So I reckon – it being money no object – Dinsdale could do with a 250SWB to keep his Aston company, otherwise it might look a bit lonely in the dehumidifed double garage under his South Ken mews cottage...

Sorry to be such a terrible cliche, but it has to be a Ferrari 250GT SWB, preferably in grey or dark blue, in full road trim but with alloy body. And if you are wondering why, just check out the August issue of C&SC when it goes on sale on 7 July!

I do kinda agree with Andrew, though, because I've got two kids and they wouldn't fit into the Ferrari... so I might have to have a MkX Jaguar for the school run...
