The kids in San Francisco told me it was important to drink lots of OJ if you've been tripping on acid. So, living near hippietown in SF, I always felt a little self-conscious when I just wanted some OJ for breakfast.

This is actually the last 2 weeks;

Changed and flushed transmission oil and filter

Installed a new refrigerator

Fixed a major water pipe leak in front yard; repaired and installed cut off valve and another spigot.

Installed a new water heater 

Installed a water pressure regulator on copper line at meter

Installed all new toilet plumbing

Currently looking for failed water pressure regulator because amazingly us, a plumber and a leak specialists cannot find where the main water goes into house.{#Stupid}

Mine too, barring some bad snap decisions. But I'm thinking a year or two down the road. I also think the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is about the best looking car on the planet. Those are in the range as well, but well priced, clean and unabused don't line up often on those. 

How about an older Mercedes SL for you?  Some of the early 80s ones had 5 speeds, but they are hard to find (import only?). They are rock solid reliable and you can wrench on them yourself.  More of a boulevarder than a racer, but they do drive nice and the top goes down.

 
The Vantage, at least the earlier ones were built on the same platform as the Jag only with a different engine and a manual transmission for "only" $40k more than the Jag. Would love to have one but again just a slight bit out of the price range.
I owned a 450SL back in the 80's and it was a tank and got 10-12 mpg around town. I liked it but it just wasn't sporty. In fact I traded it in on a Miata when they first came out. The older SL's like the 250's etc were easier to find with a standard and got better mileage.
I'd consider another Alfa but nice ones are not cheap anymore. Didn't get near enough from the insurance company to replace it which is one reason I went for the Jag. It seemed weird that the Jag XK's are cheaper than Alfa's but now I know why.
The new Alfa 4C spyder has gotten good reviews but again to expensive and no manual available. 
If I can find a Jensen Healy in good shape I'd own one again. Very fun to drive with the Lotus engine. I wouldn't mind having another Jensen Interceptor either. Have had 2 already but they have gotten to expensive for me now. Same with all the good TVR models. That and I got pulled over by the cops to often in the one I had.

But it never stranded me either. And it was the most complex production car ever made at that point. Now the Maserati BiTurbo I owned was a different story. You need a live in mechanic to keep one of those running day to day.

The F-Types seem to be getting really good reviews but way out of my price range.

Well that's all encouraging. I like those Jags but wouldn't want one if I was in your situation - you need something you can rely on, and no matter how good it has been or what you have fixed, I can't imagine you not having at least a little anxiety every time you turn the key.

One of these days I'm going to go back to sporty. The Tata Jags would be an option, but I don't think I'd go for the Ford Jags.  If the budget allows, an F-Type will be on the short list. But so will an AMG GT (Maybe an SLS if depreciation and speculation ever come into balance - yeah right), and a lot of other cool toys. Maybe even something Italian if I have a good pair of walking shoes and time to kill.

Yes, ASI had it for 3.5 weeks and said they could find nothing wrong and returned it so I reinstalled it with no change to the problem.

As a recap - 2 months ago driving back from a Doc appointment in Petersburg, about a 300 mile RT it developed a misfire in cylinder 8 on the way back. I found if you let it cool off it would run normal for a mile or so and then start missing again and would get worse the more you drove it until it threw errors and CEL light and then "Limp Home" mode.
First I tried swapping the cyl 8 coil with another cylinder but the code stayed with 8. Then changed all the spark plugs as they were likely original with 100k on them. Again no change. Swapped ignition modules - no change, Sent ECU out to be checked. Checked ok. Did compression test. All well there.  
So things changed on Friday. I decided to change out the fuel injector for cyl 8 and it came in the mail that day. I think someone got fired for this - You can change out a fuel injector on one of these in less than 3 minutes even if you've never done one of these before. Major engineering flaw to make it that easy. While doing so I found the source of my intermittent gas smell. ALL 8 injector clamps were loose because someone never tightened down the screws that hold them down. Some were REAL loose. But I digress. After installing the new injector and checking for leaks took it for a short drive. And still had the same damn problem after about a mile. Except when I pulled into the driveway I noticed a clicking sound that was getting louder.  Opened the hood, I mean bonnet and found the noise coming from the cyl 8 area. There is a local Indy Jag mechanic and he tells me its a stuck or bent valve and says it likely was working cold and then hanging up as it warmed up and quoted me $2500 and up to fix it.
So yesterday I decide to piddle with it some more after deciding to sell it as is for cheap but first I wanted to look at it more myself. So I start it up and just let it sit and idle. Nice and smooth at first but it slowly starts to misfire at first every 10-20 seconds and then constantly after a time. And then it starts making the sound again. So I made a stethoscope out of old gas line and a funnel. Turns out the sound is coming from inside the cyl 8 coil pack! I pull the connector off the coil and the noise goes away. But this coil came from cyl 5 before I had swapped it and the error was cyl 8. WTF?  So I take the bolts from all 8 coils and swap them one at a time into cyl 8. I found THREE that all fail when put there after warm up. Seven of the coils are original Denso's with 100k and its common problem of these failing. The coil that had been in cyl 8 when I started had already been replaced at some point with a non Denso part so someone else had been troubleshooting this same problem before. Cylinder 8 is buried in back by the firewall with no way for the heat to get out easily and the others are all wide open so they stay cooler. Two of the Three that fail in cyl 8 do not fail in the other holes. 
Sooo.... When I swapped the coil the first time Good Ol' Murphy saw to it that I happened to pick one of the other 2 bad coils to put in its place. I am ordering a new set of coils today and hopefully when they arrive later this week that will finally fix this. If it does then I can remove the ABS module and repair that also. They all fail as they had bad solder joints and are easy to fix. Then it goes up for sale. It will likely be the next persons more reliable car ever but I don't trust it anymore. That and I just can't get used to an automatic and want something sportier with a manual tranny.

We stayed at Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, which is open during the Winter season too (closed now thru sometime in November), and I've always seen ads promoting their New Year's Eve package... but it's a long ol' drive for us then, all the roads are closed except the one coming in from the north so we have to drive all the way around. But anyway, I guess it's the tradition to do the New Year's Eve ball at the hotel, then go to the Boiling River on New Year's Day. Uh, brr. I've been in there when there's snow on the ground (spring or fall, can't remember) but it wasn't really very cold out. Not sure I'd go for it when it's 0°F and overcast...
