    May have been asked before, so sorry if it has. Say you had a budget of £150,000 to spend on cars and only cars, what car/car's would you buy? The money can also be used for running costs etc.

    For me:-
    1) Mini Cooper JCW for £22k
    2) Cadillac escalade VVT for £36k
    3) Jaguar E-type for £25k
    4) Preorder Corvette C6 C7 stingray for £55k

    Then bank the £12k to fund the extravagance!

    Oh this is a tough one...

    Cars
    1) Nissan R35 GT-R 2012 for £30,000
    2) Toyota Supra Aerotop 1999 for £15,000
    3) Shelby Ford Mustang 1967 for £40,000
    4) Nissan Silvia S15 Spec-R 1999 for £7,000 - Daily Driver
    5) Jaguar E-Type 1965 for £25,000

    Bikes
    1) Ducatti 1199 195HP!! for ...£18,000

    Then save the rest for turbos, blueprinting and engine mods Although I could easily spend £150k on this alone :P lol I would've thrown an R34 in there too but R35s can be pushed considerably further on standard engine parts.

    Dayummn!

    Would not choose them myself, but can certainly see why you would! I'm not a custom mod kinda guy, factory spec for me. One car I would have, my Brother has a stripped classic mini with a 2.2L modded civic engine. That thing can move!

    I did contemplate one mental car, thought the novelty of being able to drive a different car every day would be pretty ****ing cool!

    I like these threads!

    1) Vauxhall Monaro VXR 6.2 as a daily driver - £12k
    2) 1969 Chevrolet Camaro - £30k
    3) TVR Cerbera - £15k

    And the rest can go towards running costs!

    I'm looking for a Triumph TR6 at the moment, so probably one of those?

    A lot of people seem to have quite a big list. Speaking as someone who often has up to 5 cars on the drive, it can become a little annoying. Especially when the one you want to use is behind 4 others!

    First world problems

    My list is basically something comfortable quick and reliable as a daily, something very fast that handles well for track days / runs / hoons, and something old because, well, they are awesome!

    Trying to keep it reasonably attainable.

    Well, one doesn't have this problem. With a 4 car garage that my parents would definitely let me use as it contains only storage, and the upstairs is empty. I would just transfer the items upstairs and use the garage.

    Our new house has a double garage. Unfortunately it's double length rather than double width so I'm still stuffed either way!
