would like a 2002 and stuff like that, but I wouldn't get a vintage car unless i lived in the countryside. would want a big garage and stuff to tinker with them. Would like a series 1 E-type too, but same thing. Just kinda prefer the idea of living in the city and having a bunch of mint condition cars in my private dream car garage

I have dreamt about owning a house with a car elevator and a large bellow ground garage for years

Grand Nationals can be had for pretty reasonable prices these days. Sub 20k in pretty amazing condition considering the age. Plus you get a fair amount of creature comforts when compared with the muscle cars from 1965 - 1973 that would make a GN less of a pain to drive. GNX still super expensive. The Grand National is trashy, but awesome. However, you could also get a souped up Buick Regal from same era and trash it and not even worry about it. But still, Grand National prob a good car for a daily driver if you don't mind cloth seats and RWD works for your conditions. Should maintain some semblance of value with a strong following / group of collectors.

Yup! Also if he is paying cash, the difference would be even less. No finance charge penalty to waste over the years on the extra money spent versus haggling.

One car I think I might like for what it represents, US muscle cars, is a Viper. I think I read they are bringing it back. Totally within my means but probably not totally within my marriage. laugh.gif

As far as dream garage goes, I'd probably have:

993 Ruf CTR2
Singer Porsche
959
McLaren F1
Ferrari F40
Toyota FJ40 with a lift kit and mods
Ford GT40 or GT
Range Rover Sport Supercharged (for wife)
Some sort of old man car (Lexus, Cadillac, etc. just for extreme comfort)

Ugh, you don't want an RR Sport. They are the same thing basically as the LR4, which is a great vehicle, but if you're going dream garage get the full size Rover. The Sport is on my wife's radar for her next lease but I think it's too small interior wise.

Current Range Rover HSE
Current Mercedes Benz S Class
Current Bentley CGT convertible
Ferrari F355
Ferrari 458

+1. I had a RR Sport GT that was very unique and a decent commuter, but I ended up dumping it precisely for that reason - too cramped on the inside, and also subpar finishes for a vehicle in this price range. Even though the full size is 40% more on top of that, it is in a whole different league and totally worth it IMHO.

Thanks, for purposes of clarification, "current" denotes that I would want the current model run of each of these in the garage, we don't currently have the CGT. smile.gif

Agree not only on the fit and finish, but at least in the previous generation, sub-par interiors accommodations too. I mean, I get this is a work horse with lipstick on it, but when you're in that price point you need to have not only fit and finish but electronics and appointments not be surpassed by the 35k millionaire Infiniti G class.
