    OK, OK, OK... so you didn't REALLY win the bazillion dollar jackpot but for the purpose of this post let's assume you did. Money is no object and you can choose only ten cars for your uber-garage. What do you choose?

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Okay, I'll play. It's almost impossible to narrow it down to just ten, but here are mine... at least for now:

    2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS - The perfect car for the track, and it can also be driven as a normal car.


    1954-1956 Porsche 550 Spyder - The giant killer. I've always wanted one of these.


    2004-2006 Porsche Carrera GT - A screaming V10 that sounds like a Formula 1 car, and it goes like one too.


    1994 - 1998 McLaren F1 - The greatest supercar ever built.


    1971 - 1973 Lamborghini Miura SV - The first true "super car." Raw. Noisy. Fast. Scary. Drop-dead gorgeous. I think I've wanted one of these since I was in the womb.


    2008 Audi RS4 Avant - Fast and practical. A station wagon with the performance of a super car. The best daily driver around.


    2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder - Faster around a track than the Ferrari F430, and even rarer.


    1966 Corvair Yenko Stinger - Beating the foreign sports cars at their own game in the 60s, winning several SCCA national championships. If you love Corvairs, the Stinger is the one you dream of.


    1962 - 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO - The best of its day. Italian passion.


    1954 - 1957 Jaguar D-type - Just look at it. Now imagine what it sounds like, and what it's like to drive this. This is what you get to drive in heaven. Scratch that, this is what GOD drives.

    Time to daydream, is it folks?
    I'm partial to having these in my garage!

    Corvettes-maybe 2- 1958, and 1963 split window. eek image
    T-Birds- 2- 1955, 1957-mainly for the wife, and I like them too tongue image
    Pontiac-1964 GTO convert. biggrin image
    Chevy-1957 convert FI- I know that '57 Chevs are a dime a dozen, but other folks seem to go wild when they see them, and it's great to see their reactions! lmao image
    Mustang-1966 GT convert. tongue image
    Healey 3000-got to be the big 6 cylinder Healey for that throaty sound out the back! wink image
    Jaguar XKE- the first year with those beautiful covered headlights, small grill opening, and hits 150 MPH too! smile image
    Finally an every day car maybe? Our oldest grandaugther just got her licence, so maybe something she could drive too.
    Having a difficult time with this one. Something small and sporty, or something with lots of space for her friends?
    She wants a Corolla, because her friends have them, but when money is no object, seems kind of "plain". scratchchin image
    Oh what the heck, a Cadillac Escalade for her!!!

    So there it is folks. My Dream Garage.
