Have you looked at maybe a Casio G-Shock? Not a car, but it'll last longer than a $1500 car and is much cheaper buy, own, and run.
A G-Shock would not be practical.
I do not know how to operate one.
I certainly cannot drive it to work.
It won't win any autocrosses, even if I got away with putting it in the Novice Street Tire class.
It would not allow me to cram my arm into the tight spaces under various hoods, as I do all day at work.
It would not allow me the proper articulation and contact acoustics to play the bass, as I do at all other times.
It would not allow me to wear my wrist brace when I am not doing the above activites.
The dog would try to bite it off my arm, just like he does with the wrist brace.
And I would have to reset it in two weeks.
