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.
|Oldsmobile||Ninety Eight||Regency Sedan||1976||$8,000.00|
|Oldsmobile||Ninety Eight||Regency Coupe||1972||$10,000.00|
|Oldsmobile||Ninety Eight||Custom Cruiser||1976||$10,000.00|
|Mercedes Benz||280SL||Pagoda Roadster||1970||$25,000.00|
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?
