#1 of 223 Edmunds Heaven: IF you had $500K to spend on a car(s), which would you buy?
Apr 04, 2006 (7:17 pm)
I think most people , at some point or another, expressed that they have a dream vehicle(s). IT would be what they would want to drive and own if money were no object.
Here in America, the land of the free, home of the brave ( those who are willing to stand up to the flak and responsibilities of buying a car), the land where dreams sometimes do come true, dreaming is encouraged,
So let us now DREAM...and pretend for a moment that we have :
1- a willing spouse/parent/partner.
2- all other financial responsibilities like mortgage and retirement plan taken care of.
3- no kids to take care of...or kids already taken care of.
4- no other competing responsibility for your money.
5- Most important of all :: $500,000 to spend on one or more cars....
What would you buy ? What is your dream ?
Let us share this little Edmunds Heavens.... where your dream can come true in cyberspace.
#2 of 223 well just off the top of my head?

A new Ford GT. I would settle for an old GT40 but the new one would do just fine. Add a Bentley Continental GT or the Flying Spur. And for left overs maybe a Maserati Spyder GT with a F-1 transmission. I might have a little left over but what the heck, we are dreaming.

This is a little difficult to answer given that some of my choices are classics and subject to a pretty wide price variation.
Here's my list:
1954 Hudson Hornet Convertible (twin-H power)
2007 Audi TT
1972 Ford Tornio given the full Chip Foose treatment
2007 Ford F350 King Ranch
2007 Jaguar XJR
A left over Nextel Cup road racer for club racing.
That should do it.
Apr 05, 2006 (4:24 am)
1986 Honda CRX Si
1969 Triumph GT6+
Series 1 Land Rover
Early sixties Unimog
I think that would tap me out.
Apr 05, 2006 (4:39 am)
Well lets see.......
Mercedes CL500 (outgoing model)
911 Carrera 4S
Apr 05, 2006 (4:50 am)
Aston Martin DB9
BMW 335i coupe
And for daily drivers for the wife and I:
Mine - Infiniti FX45 loaded
Hers - Redondo Red loaded Acura TL 6spd'er/NAV
- My Honda Accords have been great too me, so I'd probably buy a couple of them as well. Especially a 6spd V6 Coupe/NAV.
I think I'd better get on that garage extension...

I ain't driving if I got that kind of dough.
probably riding around in a maybach.
#9 of 223 $500,000 for me.
Apr 05, 2006 (6:34 am)
1994 Ferrari 512 TR $150,000 for a barely used mint copy ?
The rest I'd buy a Maybach and hire Fintail as my Chaeuffer "Fintail keep it under 130 mph"
