If you've had to climb in and out a few times... or God forbid worked on one you might sing a different tune.
They're fast, and sexy.... but living with one is a PITA. Kind of what I imagine marrying a supermodel is like
It's not like I would daily drive an F1, seeing as they are so rare and expensive these days. And if I could afford an F1, why would I work on it myself. I'd be throwing handfuls of money at my personal staff while I sipped on a drink.
I could never really choose. There are so many cool cars!
This is my problem. Choosing just one would be impossible for me. I'm already indecisive, so I know a choice like this would make my go crazy. One pops into my head and I think "Oh! That's the coolest!" but then it's followed by another, and then another, and so on.
So getting away from the race cars (guilty), if I could drive any car to work, it would be something like a GT40 (not the new Ford GT, the GT40 is cooler) or a Factory Five GTM. But, they would have to be cars that I built myself, full out. Top of the line suspension, tires, brakes, nice interior, and a screaming high-rpm turbo V8, maybe even a Hartley turbo V8. Yes, and air conditioning for Texas driving duty.
Now that is cool, arriving in a sexy, stupid fast car, with an apocalyptic sound that spreads fear from a mile away, that you built yourself. Much cooler I think then arriving in a cool car that you wrote a check for.
plus this (Ariel version shown)
plus a couple of these
plus a lot of wrenching, fabrication, painting...

I'm torn here.
On the one hand, the GTM is probably the only original-design kit car currently on the market that's still going to look good 40 years from now. But on the other hand, it's a little too much Daniel Craig, and not quite enough Roger Moore. I mean, obviously James Bond can split your head open in the blink of an eye, but he's supposed to do it with a ball-point pen, not a battle-axe.
(That said, I would still give my left nut for one of those MegaBusa engines.)

Here is Hans Stuck scaring the **** out of you using a CTR:
Umm.... HOLY SH... That... was... amazing... That guy is insanely good. I'll admit it, if I had been in the passenger seat, despite knowing who he is, I would still have been scared shitless, start to finish.
