Default Cars - money no object

I love cars, always have. Every car I have had I've always done all repairs and services myself. I haven't had particulary great cars but they have always had a place in my heart (and were pretty quick too). I'm not a boy racer, I hate that, and I don't stick plastic shit all over the car and paint it puke green. I do like fast cars though, ever since I was allowed to take a porsche 911 turbo for a spin when I was 19, ever since then I've had the speed bug.

So this morning I was lying in bed thinking about the cars I would buy if I was rich....

I figured that if I was rich I would life on a farm away from all the poor people :) and would need a 4x4


Then for taking the kids to school I would need a practical 4 seater with a boot

Then after I dropped them to school I can drive home like I sat on a wasp

Then just for fun, and for ripping your mates faces off. I would have either


Or



These are actually relatively cheap cars, all under 60k.

What cars would you have?

Lol, I doubt there is a parking space in the world that can accommodate a car that long.

Since I have a major driving offence and won't be able to afford insurance when I get my next car in gona have to get a classic car and use that loop hole. So I will probs end up with this in 2011....



:(

I've owned well over 100 cars...that's not counting the 3 trucks, a van, 4 motorcycles and 3 semi trucks.

My Fav was a C-4 Corvette....and a couple of the 55 Chevs I built..

You can get them almost anywhere...mine came from the Philippines...but no matter where you get them, they are Very Expensive. I tend to prefer the ones built for speed, and as you know...Speed Costs Money..!!

That is a sweet car.

I was looking online at "buying" my caterham 7 CSR superlight. They are 32k new and factory built, but you can buy them in kit form for 19k.

Although that's without the optional extras.... Like paint, windshield, seatbelts.... Not exactly an option....



I want it soo bad. 2.3L cosworth engine, 0-60 in 3.1secs..... And it looks slick :)

70 Judge. But I'd be happy with a new 3/4 ton 4X4.
