How many cars are there in your garage?

I have three cars, a very rare (only 8450 were built) Noir Nocturne RENAULT Avantime, a new Hot Chocolate MINI and my first car, one of the last real British sportcars, an Old English White MGB Roadster. However, I have wanted a Porsche 911 ever since I was a very young lad. I would always think that someday, I would have a Porsche of my own. Deep down though, it seemed very far off and unrealistic. Until one day I was introduced to a secret (focus) by my beautiful and totally strong, positive wife Sandra. To put her secret to the test, I started focusing on attracting a Porsche. I started by looking at Porsches for sale weekly and then daily. At first, they seemed so expensive! After a while though, the outrageous price tag seemed reasonable to me. I really believe, that I will have a Porsche 911. Next, I mustered up the courage to go test-drive one. After all, you have to do whatever it takes to visualize your dream (me behind the wheel of a Porsche 911). So, I test-drove an approved 911 (997) Carrera S

(50.000 km/ 261 kW = 355 pk/price € 60.000,00) and then a new one (294 kW = 400 pk/price over € 150.000,-). At this point, I knew what it felt like to be behind the wheel of a Porsche and could visualize myself driving my very own Porsche 911. It should be a 911 (991) Carrera S with very low miles and in pristine condition for a fair price. It will be so perfect! It is the believing that I will receive what I have asked for. This will be the key to my dream sports car.

    What's in my Ed Hardy Bag?
    The evergreen MGB is, quite simply, the most popular sports car ever made in Britain and still has tremendous appeal today as an affordable, practical and thoroughly enjoyable two-seater. First seen in 1962, the monocoque-chassis MGB had plenty going for right from the outset - gutsy performance from the 1800cc B-series engine, a sweet four-speed box, safe, predictable handling and very attractive styling. Although the original MGB was a resounding success, there was definitely room for improvement and the Mark II added a much-needed fully synchromesh gearbox and improved electrics, with an alternator replacing the dynamo fitted to earlier cars. Further changes were necessitated by new safety rules, including a collapsible steering column and padded dashboard. The Mark II, announced in 1967, was further refined in 1969 with new Rostyle wheels, seats and a matt black front grille then, in 1970, a redesigned hood, smaller 15.5-inch diameter steering wheel plus a much better heater made the MGB even easier to live with. Between 1974 and 1980, when the Abingdon factory finally closed down, MG made further changes to the B, including the controversial black rubber bumpers mandated by American safety legislation, new wheels and revised suspension. After some criticism was levelled at the MGB over the compromised handling, BL added an anti-roll bar to the rear end in 1976 that went a long way to sorting the issue, while the facia was updated, the pedals relocated to allow proper 'heel and toeing' and the seats trimmed in cloth. The MGB was, to many, one of the last real British sports cars on the market and remains hugely popular today.

    So I am off to buy my dream car, eh? Step one is to get rid of my first car! I bought a pre-owned MGB Roadster in 1987 and I sold this approved MG today after owning it for 25 years.

    Mission one accomplished :)
