Here is my dream garage.

Million Dollar Dream Garage

Yesterday, I was asked a question by a Facebook friend.  He asked “if you had 1 million dollars, what car would you buy.”  Most of the responses included cars like Ferrari and Bugatti, and all included two or three cars at the most.  I decided this needed some effort put into it, and came up with a list of my own.  What follows is a list of all the cars I would buy with 1 million dollars.  The prices are estimates based on eBay auctions, and are pretty accurate.  I was able to “buy” 38 cars for the same money as a single Bugatti Veyron.  I feel like a pretty smart shopper.

Saab

900 Aero Coupe 1984 $5,000.00

Jaguar XKE Coupe 1973 $25,000.00
Mercedes Benz 280SL Pagoda Roadster 1970 $25,000.00
Jensen Interceptor III 1974 $25,000.00
Aston Martin Lagonda Sedan 1989 $30,000.00
Lincoln Continental Coupe 1947 $30,000.00
Lincoln Continental MK II 1956 $30,000.00
Lancia Fulvia Rally Coupe 1967 $30,000.00
Lancia Stratos Replica Coupe 1972 $30,000.00
Iso Lele Coupe 1973 $40,000.00
Lotus Elite Coupe 1960 $45,000.00
Morgan Plus 8 Roadster 2003 $45,000.00
Jaguar XK120 Coupe 1953 $50,000.00
Jaguar XK140 Roadster 1956 $50,000.00
TVR Sagaris Coupe 2005 $55,000.00
Lotus Exige S 2012 $60,000.00
Bristol 403 Coupe 1955 $65,000.00

The total for all these beautiful cars is $947,000.00.  This allows a little left over for adjusting the price, and importing a few of the cars (Bristol and TVR) from another country.  Of course, I would probably need another 100,000 grand for a place to put them all, but it would be worth it.

If I had a few more million to play with, I would add in the following cars to the garage.  This would bring the total to 5.5 million…though I might replace one of them for a Ferrari F40.

So, this is my dream car garage.  I would be interested to learn your thoughts…which cars would you include?
