There comes a time in most men's lives when they realize they will never front a rock band, never dunk a basketball, never engage in witty banter with Penelope Cruz, never own a European sports car capable of hitting 200 mph. New ships are sailing every day, and that's too bad, but life has it's little compensations. Take, for example, Adventure Supercars, a traveling exhibit that allows you to get behind the wheel or passenger seat of the exotic sports car of your dreams and take it for a spin around a track. We're talking Ferrari F430, McLaren MP4-12C, Lamborghini LP 570-4 Super Trofeo and a stable of others, and they're coming to the MotorSport Ranch, 9012 Performance Court in Cresson, southwest of Fort Worth, at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Even a small taste of your dreams isn't cheap. We're talking $99 for a ride-along upward to $399 to drive, depending on the car, but don't let that stop you. You can pinch pennies by, say, turning your kids disposable diaper over and using both sides for a month or two. You've earned this. (Word of advice: Bite the bullet and don't do just the ride-along. That promises regret.) Visit adventuresupercars.com to reserve your wheels.
