Wishlist Wednesday

Cars I’d like to test drive, but could never afford – Black Flagged

This Wednesday Wishlist has been enjoyable to ponder, and to keep from wondering in thought for too long there have been a few criteria put in place.

  1. Must be street legal in the U.S. (no track-day or homologated race cars)
  2. The base model must be priced between $75,000 and $250,000. The price is capped to prevent this from being a hypercar list.
  3. Only one model per manufacturer.
  4. At least 1,000 cars built to increase the chances that a car is for sale and available for test driving.
  5. EXCEPTION: One entry can be exempted from above rules if it is available for rental.

I had an initial list that needed to be severely whittled down, and other entries were considered but did not qualify. I have mentioned a few already as Preferred Sibling if there was a connection to an entry on the list. Here are a few additional honorable mentions with their disqualifications.

Shelby Cobra

Only 998 originals were built and auction prices are in the hypercar range.
Kit cars are available, but that’s an argument for another day.

Be sure to check back in and find out which car tops the list next Wednesday.
