We offered four drive-to-Monterey classic-car choices: 41% picked the 1967 Alfa Romeo Duetto, 17% picked the 1965 Ford Mustang GT convertible, 14% picked the 1972 Triumph TR6, 14% picked the 1972 Porsche 914/4, and 7% picked the 1967 MGB convertible.

Asked the question, “How many cars can you reasonably own, drive and maintain yourself?” 39% said 2-3; 33% said 4-6, 10% said 7-10 and 6% said 1. Oh, and 13% said “You can never have too many.”

Thanks to all of you for sharing your responses.
