Larrry. I didn’t focus so much on a particular brand just English. 5 original Minis, Sunbeam Tiger, 4 lotuses, a few MG’s. Then when my kids were young didn’t have time for any toys. Cars will always be around, but the kids will be gone before you know it. When my boys we’re teenagers they bought their own toys and I taught them how to fix, restore a BMW E30 for one and a E28 M5 for the other. They both still own them. Once I did my fatherly duty I was looking for another Lotus and stumbled across an NSX with 240k miles (a car I will never sell) that needed a bunch of mechanical work. What a pleasure not to have to do any rust repair (all aluminum). After that was running I started my bucket list. I want to visit Italy and while I’m there tour the Ferrari factory. I found out to get in you have to own a Ferrari. So I purchased a 1985 Mondial that was sitting for 10+ years. I’m going through the same process you are. FerrariChat is a great resource.
