    1. See, for example, www.classiccarclub.co.uk

      Expensive, but imagine instead of a fleet of $100,000 vintage Jaguars and Porsches, a DT car club with $5000 Starions and Roadmasters. Could the math work? It might!

    2. You basically just described the mass of vehicles in the current "DT Fleet"...but makes/models may vary. Only we aren't charging other people to drive them around at the moment. Capital idea!

    3. I've seen the classic car club here in NY, but out of my league...
