What we’d blow the budget on this month
Aston Martin DBS Vantage
If you like the pure DBS shape, a recent bare-metal rebuild, including enlarging the straight-six to 4.2 litres, and copious interior upgrades, make this a rather special example.
Shapecraft Lotus Elan GTS
One of a handful of Elan coupés built by Surbiton Motors in 1963, this has been upgraded to 26R spec and raced with some success. And it’s road-legal, too.

1953 Flat-rad Morgan Plus 4
Four-seater Morgans can look ungainly but this one has better visual balance. Plus 4 engine will help to haul a full car load, while the uncowled radiator makes it stand out.
