Own your own F1 car

If you've ever dreamed of owning your own classic Formula One car a) your out of your mind and b) you should read this article at F1 Technical that describes the pros (but not many of the cons):
The average price range is around €45,000 - €60,000 which is only the same as a pricey road car. Although maintainence may cost a bit on top, these could even make good trackday or just enthusiasts cars. As well as these there are several Formula 3 cars and other open wheelers while not the same kind of history are sure to be fun behine the wheel.
I suspect the maintenance on these is going to be more than "a bit" if you really want to run the car. Spare parts might need to be manufactured, fuel / tires are hard to come by and engines typically need to have the oil pre-heated. But it's fun to dream!
