This man knows what he wants: 23 Volk­swa­gen Golf GTIs or 19 of the even-faster R ver­sion. ‘‘Well, why not?’’ he ar­gues. ‘‘The Golf GTI is pound for pound one of the world’s best cars and surely the best all­rounder un­der $100,000. It would be un­con­scionable to pass up the chance to own a life­time’s sup­ply. Noth­ing else does so much so well.’’

He wants the sole Fer­rari in the group, a 599 GTB, ‘‘one of the all-time su­per­car gods’’ and sim­ply the great­est car he’s ever driven. He wants a mus­cle car, and he’s a true-blue Aussie, so goes for a Valiant Charger RT E49, in hemi-orange. A Fal­con XR6 Turbo would do duty as the ute. A Range Rover TDV8 has proper of­froad cre­den­tials and will do for fam­ily hol­i­day runs. His mo­tor­bike would be a Du­cati 916 Senna edi­tion, a dra­mat­i­cally styled road race ma­chine. And for a nim­ble quick thing, he wants a lowk­ilo­me­tre Tommi Makinen edi­tion Mit­subishi Lancer Evo VI turbo.
