When you first started this list I was going to choose somewhere in the low 60s. After lurking in the weeds (on no, group think may hammer me! ), I'm going to slot in at 36.
If nothing else, if I'm in the lead on December 15th, it'll encourage Nyccarguy to hit the showrooms.

Time capsule, but not a Type R, so it will go lower.

Don't forget to add my 2012 Dodge Ram...9/23/12.

got some details on the Cobra my BIL is getting. I saw a picture (it is silver with black stripes, not common but sharp). Fresh build with 540 miles on it.
Rouch engine. It is a "427polished IR (fuel injected). Way to much engine but being considered used you don't have choice if you want the car. All the pwr can't even be put to the ground in car this light. 556hp 537 ft lb torque"
Considering this must weigh 2,500#s at most, that is a pwr/weight ratio of about 4. That is obscene. not sure what you can even do with something like this. Other than look at it in the garage.

If we're doing a 2012 list, I technically bought my 2003 540i on 12/30/2011, but took delivery on 1/12/2012. Not sure whether that counts for 2012 or not.

What counts is when you drive it off the lot!

Oh, I'm sure we'll end up at the Denver Auto Show at some point. I see it's in March this year - seems like the past couple of years it's crept into April.
As it gets closer we should see if we can coordinate schedules.
#29547 of 32403 My guess is 45..

Hopefully, I won't add one to it, this year, but that's not how the smart money bets...

Not me. Not this year Steve. My '01 Prelude Type SH is staying put. My wife's 2011 Pilot EXL w/ NAV is a 10 year vehicle (hopefully), & my BMW lease isn't up until September 2014. I do not ANTICIPATE a punch for us this year. But thanks for your kind words of encouragement.
