Default What would you want in a play car?

OK so here'* a hypothetical for ya. Say you have $20,000 for a play (not a daily driver) car, what would you want? And it cannot be a Bonneville.

For me it would probably be a '67-68 Firebird convertible for my wife, assuming we could find a house with more garage space.

I'd build my own Caterham with a Ford Cosworth engine and super soft slicks

I'd probably go with a Skyline GTR, or a done up Fairlady Z TT.
