I really listened to everyone who chimed in on this thread. Great thoughts, practical thoughts, dreamy thoughts...and the shared awareness that as we get older life does seem much too short.
After a LOT of thought, and a just completed two weeks of email solicitations to 10 dealerships asking for offers on the three models, yesterday I ordered a Red Eye Wide Body in Plum Crazy livery. It will have all the options except the sun roof and the technology package (which on the Red Eye only buys rain sensing windshield wipers and auto bright/dimming headlights). It will have black laguna leather seats.
My wife is excited too - in high school she innocently bought a used General Lee - the 1969 Charger in the Dukes of Hazzard show, and later a used Z-28. She got pulled over with her girlfriend 10 minutes after buying that Z-28. The officer said, "Let me guess...you just bought this car, right?" And he kindly gave her a warning.
I guess I'll find out if that warning stuck!
Thanks again for all the advice and know-how. This is a long deferred dream car. YOLO.
