    I should have bought the 1953 340 Mexico Spyder for $4,200 from the owner in 1974 and should have bought Ferrari cars instead of Alfa Romeo cars. I guess everyone needs a time machine but, I would rather have the winning lottery numbers and not go back in time. I would have to pay for storage and insurance for fifty years and is difficult at best.

    And this is why the prices look so cheap now, once you factor in how much that amount of money could buy back then it becomes obvious how expensive the cars actually were :) Having said that, I have always compared the price of my dream Ferrari (the 246 Dino) to my annual salary since my first drive in one back in 1976. At the time the car cost 2 years' salary and stayed at that level right the way through until about the 1990s. Missed my chance to buy one when they were about 60,000 pounds sterling and then prices took off and haven't really come down. Now I'm retired it's a case of winning the Lottery :(
