Make no mistake, this IS as much of a bucket-list as it is a dream list of cars. I’ve yet to drive many of these sublime examples of motoring, but if I was ever given the opportunity, I’d jump at it, potentially re-scheduling a birthday party, religious holiday or anniversary to get a chance behind one of these vehicles.
