Why would I need 5 cars when I can only drive one at a time? I'd rather have another 5 girlfriends...

I've been in an Ariel Atom they actually make them in my Parish lol. I currently have a Colt Ralliart and would love a Evo. But the Insurance ain't too clever for me with my naughty speeding fines

I think an old landy would be nice too and a decent camper van or summin would be nice

I'm not allowed a motorbike broke my wrists last time on my zzr600. Before that I smashed my FZR400. So I really need something solid around me

If you can afford them all the chances are it's not going to feel like a significant amount!

Wow Metro 6r4. Never heard of it just looked it up and it would give my renault 5 turbo a run for its money. 3 litre v6 450bhp in a car that weighs about as much as the driver Crazy. I bet as rare as rocking horse poo though?

I am lucky enough to have a Caterham.  Mine is a standard 1.6 K-series engined car, which is more than adequate for road going use.  I ordered one as a kit, took a year to build it, and got it road registered in 2008.  It is a great car, but can be incredibly frustrating as well.  Mainly due to the bad weather, I often consider selling it but whenever I drive it or just see it sitting there in the garage I know I would regret getting rid of it.  

For me, builiding it was a big part of the Caterham "experience", as I wasn't mechanicaly minded in the slightest so it was a big learning curve but I did (mainly) enjoy it.  If I did sell it and later decided I wanted another one, I would buy one second hand I think.  I saw that the R500 was mentioned earlier in the thread, but I think it is too much for public roads, but would be a great track toy.

This week, Caterham announced a new model which just looks like it's going to be insane!  310bhp from a 500kg car....

Sounds like my front drive! The OH is absolutely obsessed with cars. He buys lot of cars to 'do-up' and sell on.... there seems to be a lot of buying but not a lot of selling  I think the last count was 16 cars

His mini is one of a kind though... he put a Honda Civic type R engine into it... Driving that thing is like trying to wrestle a tiger into submission!

My OH had a Trafalgar Blue Traveller years ago. They are great, except hers was in a very poorly way and ended up in the great carpark in the sky. I wouldn't say no to another one, but preferably working this time!

1) A black cab (for blending in with the crowd)

2) A police car (for cutting through traffic)

3) A diplomats car (for parking in London)

4) The white Lotus submarine car from 007 (for travelling to the super yacht)

5) and either Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or Herbie (to keep the kids happy)
