My ultimate car has been a manual porsche 911 since i was about 5 or 6.
Very neat Mini. The only thing I’d change would be to use the Mini Clubman Estate as a starting point. Also a big wagon/estate fan.
I'd have to go with BOTH the Maybach Sedan AND the Aventador.
We’d likely find a clean Corvette C5 Z06 fixed roof coop (which we consider to be the best looking Corvette so far) and have it “resto-modded.” We’d want “wide body” fenders fore and aft and C6 Grand Sport chrome wheels (have never been able to warm up to black). Replace the LS6 with a C6 Z06 LS7 (keep things naturally aspirated and avoid the LT1 cylinder shut off tech);and upgrade running gear/trans/breaks to C7 specs. Go through the interior to make it less “plastiky,” and install C7 comp seats. Have some one shoot about 90 coats of torch red and clear coat on it, and go for a cruise. We do love Corvettes...
We trudge on.
In my garage would be a 2020 mustang gt500 and a 2020 f250 platinum tremor with BDS lift and 37’s , along with my g5 work beater hahaha....if money were no object!
Considering how often the engine needed to be accessed, that was a pretty handy feature.
Since we are talking “money is no object” dream car, I’d have to go with a classic Porsche 911 reimagined by Singer
Yep. A friend of mine had a 70's Jaguar XJ6 sedan and he put a 350 Chevy and TH350 trans in it to keep from having to open the hood as often. But someone else I know has had an XJS with the V12 for many years and has never had any problems with it but he lives on Vancouver Island and doesn't drive it every day.
But if you can afford a rich man's toy you can afford to keep it maintained.
Porche 918. Or one of these:
Supposedly stupid fast.
Because with stupid money I could afford to have someone follow me around with a generator.
This one recently sold for $899,900
I might spend a bit of time on Porsche's configurator;
Air cooled 3.6L 5 speed manual G50-03.
175 MPH on the salt.
I'd need a classy ride, so I'd like to add a 1956 Jag XK140 Roadster in black
‘67 Chevelle SS
there is no one magical, expensive car I lust over. I do pine over a number of different **** boxes, all of which I would own should I come in to a large sum of money.
In addition to my current Jeep YJ, and 99 24V Cummins, I would get the following:
1. Jeep XJ
2. VW TDI - ALH motor
3. VW TDI - newer, Golf, 4 dr. model
4. Another 1st gen cummins, non intercooled, 4x4, 5spd
5. A very early Ford 7.3 IDI diesel.... the bullnose.... maybe an 85/86
6. A 77 Ford highboy
I would probably get another YJ or two, and maybe, get a TJ, for air conditioning and what not.
All of the above would be manual trans.
The new TDI would be one reliable, new vehicle in the fleet. the vehicle for long trips, etc.
The rest, toys.... I like the older stuff...
Recently saw in the flesh an original 1967 Chevelle with the L78 427 motor. Car was in original condition. A rare bird indeed.
We trudge on.
In addition I's want a 67 or 68 Mustang 390, 4 speed. I had a 67 289 CID and let it go. Looked exactly like this one... Damn!
