Arguably the most characteristic sports car ever, 2 seater, convertible, wire spoke wheels, good performance, sleek looks, this is a 1969 model, still looks good.  I have driven the V-12 version and it drives pretty much like a tank.

Some would say a sports car can only have two seats, an independent rear suspension, and a few other tidbits.  Here is a photo of classic Brit sports cars.

Some club in nearby Zionsville has a car show of classic British cars.  Yeah, some show up w a RR, but it is mostly those beauties above.  I love seeing those older jags.  There are some odd ball Triumphs.

Anyone ever been to the museum in Volo, IL? It's pretty cool if you ever get a chance. Not too easy to get to though.

There were fairly frequent car shows in Sharonville, OH at the park back in the day, I would stumble across them.  They didn't have any criteria for entry, so you'd see some oddballs in there and a few modern cars.  I recall seeing an old Lincoln 4 door convertible with the suicide doors once.

For modern, I'd be inclined towards one of these...

I remember passing through town once, think its on  U.S. 12.  I've seen their stickers, hats and logos many times.

I remember this style and era Monte Carlo fondly.

I drove this on a track in Vegas (I didn't think it was worth the money, but it was a gift):



I drove this on a track in Austin, TX and thought it WAS worth the money because it was an all day event:



It's also faster than the Ferrari on a track, but not with me driving it.  These cars are really not suited for driving on public roads.
