GLENDALE, Ariz. -- We know one thing. You didn't win the Powerball. Even though you're not a newly minted millionaire, you still have "champagne tastes and caviar dreams," as Robin Leach would say when he hosted "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous." 

If you're like me, one of those caviar dreams includes sliding behind the wheel of an incredible car, say a Ferrari 430 or a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.

Even if you don't have the money to buy one -- and who does? -- you can rent one for the right price.   

This weekend at Westgate in the parking lot at the southwest corner of 91st and Glendale avenues,  $149 will get you three laps in either or maybe both cars.

I took the Lamborghini for a spin on "Good Morning! Arizona," with Bruce Haffner shooting the video from the Fort McDowell Casino News Chopper.

I had to choose the Lambo because it's bright orange and looked better on TV. It's a V-10 with 510hp and all-wheel drive. It really is a great handling car.  

To drive your dream car, you have to be 21 years old and have insurance for your own car.  

While $150 might seem a little pricey for some, the second you hit the gas, you'll forget about the money and your huge smile will be all that anyone sees.

The Dream Car Sprint Event hosted by Gotham Dream Cars is March 29-31 and April 12-14, 9 a.m.-7 p.m. both weekends. Be sure to use the promo code. NICKOFTIME. While reservations are recommends, they're not required. To make a reservation, got to GothamDreamCars.com.
