Geez Jim, I'm not gonna talk about my fantasies here because, well, Internet, and also, my wife might be reading this. So, I'll just say my ideal car is a 2013 VS with a two-liter and a five-speed.

See, this morning was one of those mornings.

It stayed cool out until almost noon, which was enough time to sneak down to Amador County along one of my favorite two-lane roads, grab some coffee and goodies at our favorite rural bakery, and double back through the oaks, along the little, meandering creek with the grazing horses, and early enough that the sun was low and filtering through the greenery, just like you'd want it to.

It's a road that's just right for a Speedster. It was pretty much the only kind of rural road there was in Germany in 1955, which is why our cars had no need for 650 horsepower or 18-inch, vented and drilled brake discs, or doppelganger gear changes, or a Sports Chrono Package.

A RUF or a 3500 GT would be nice, but neither would have shown me a better time on that road this morning.

I think I dream more about finding better roads and nicer mornings than about fancier cars.
