    Wow a lot of great choices and Idea's.
    # 1 Restore the Z28 ground up, only with the LSX454 crate engine and a six speed.

    # 2 Do something really fun to the HHR.

    # 3 Buy a 2010 Camaro SS with all the goodies.

    # 4 Go shopping at the Barret Jackson.

    That would probably take care of the rest.

    I've thought about this very question a bunch of times over the years, and several cars always seem to top the list:

    1 - Buy back my '66 Corvair Monza coupe and treat her to the restoration she deserves
    2 - 1966 or '67 Corvair Yenko Stinger Stage III
    3 - 1965-69 Corvair Corsa/Monza convertible
    4 - 1965 Evening Orchid Corvair Monza convertible with a Powerglide transmission (for my wife!)
    5 - 1961-62 Corvair Station Wagon - Pro Touring (Hey, with a million bucks, it CAN be done!)
    6 - A current model year Corvette Z-06 or it's equivalent (A guy's gotta have a daily driver that's under warranty, right?)
    7 - Duesenberg SJ/SSJ
    8 - 1969 Impala SS 427/4-speed convertible
    9 - Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe - Pro Touring (Family car #1)
    10 - 1965 Chevelle 300 2-door Station Wagon - Pro Touring (Family car #2)

    That's my list as of today. On some other day, some other cars might make the list: Lamborghini Miura SV, Ferrari "California Spyder" and "Daytona Spyder" come to mind right off the top!

    (In addition to the Corvairs listed above, my dream Corvair collection includes at least one factory-restored, concours-level example of every year Corvair made, to include at least one example of every body style and model available - Let's say a 1960 Monza coupe, 1961 Lakewood 700 Station Wagon, 1962 Monza Spyder convertible, 1963 500 sedan, 1964 Monza Spyder coupe, 1965 Monza sedan, 1966 Corsa convertible, 1967 500 sedan, 1968 500 coupe, 1969 Monza convertible, 1961 Corvair 95 Rampside pickup, 1962 Corvair 95 panel van, 1963 Corvair 95 Loadside pickup, 1964 Corvair 95 Rampside pickup, 1965 Greenbrier Sport Wagon window van.)

    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.




    A dime a dozen, I'll send you a couple of bucks; that way you'll have some change for a coffee!
