You Didn't Say If The Cars Could Be Stacked...!

If not, I'd keep the following in my stable:

1. 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
2. 1954 Mercedes W 196
3. 1931 Type 41 Bugatti Royale

If I ever tired of the Ferrari, I could purchase almost 500 SLK's... [:D]

On the street, I'd park my Bugatti Veyron 16.4 [:eek:)]

1: SLK63 Twin-Turbo (if and when)
2: Mooney M20R Ovation
3: Toyota Prius

The Prius is for when gas gets to $5 per gallon and the other two have to be parked or used for less than 1 hour per month. (This wasn't a serious question was it? This won't go onto my Permanent Record will it?)[}:)]

1: 2005 Bentley Continental GT,
(for special events with the wifey)
2: 2005 Maserati Quattroporte
(for evenings that I require a larger back seat)
3: 2005 Ferrari 430
(no need to explain this one)

In the driveway,
2005 Jaguar S type R or BMW M5
(for every day driving)

It took me days to compose this, I hate making the wrong choices. I love the looks of the Jag S Type R. But I crave the drivability of a BMW M5.

1) 2002 SLK32 AMG (currently in my garage
2) 2002 Nissan Maxima SE (in my garage too
3) F250 Ford Truck 4-door Diesel 4x4 (next purchase)

Yes, there are some fine cars out there, but like Howard Hughes discovered, it is not very practical to live day to day with. Having really exotic cars bring worry into the mix. Would you feel comfortable parking them in public? Worry people may steal them? etc?

The 32 is a great car to play in. The Maxima is a very nice sports sedan, reliable, plenty of room, and fast. This is my 2nd Maxima, and believe me the maintenance bills for the Maxima are much less than the MBenz.

The truck is for utility. Everyone can find uses for it and the F250 is really a great truck anyway. Having a diesel helps on the fuel and upkeep. It can pull most anything with the torque it produces.

To each his/her own. Yes, if I won the lottery, I may buy some extras, but the list above would be my main stable. [8D]

You make a lot of sense-I think I would forgoe the STI and get a E320CDi. Nice car, powerful, 38mpg! Parents have a 99TurboDiesel. Gotta bring out the Phantom to impress[8D]

Fugg practicality, if you can afford the sort of cars we're talking about, i'm guessing that you aren't going to be going to the mall all that often, you'll be paying others to do that sort of thing for you.
