    It must all go towards cars? Okay...

    1. Buy a Lotus Elise, and Insure it.
    2. Modify - Light pressure turbocharger, hi-flow intake/exhaust, brakes, tires, etc.
    3. Set aside the rest for gas, future insurance, and maintenance...
    4. Possibly, a very glossy high-quality paint job.

    EDIT: Of course, having second thoughts, I might decide to purchase and set-up an Ultima GTR or a Noble M12...

    Buy an BMW ///M3 (not SMG) black with red leather.
    Mods:
    19" BBS wheels, drop it a little 2" with Bilstein coil-over suspension kit, Install a new exhaust system with four, two on each sides 2" tips, install an ECU performance chip, Install a cold air induction kit with air filter K&N, some internal work and that it for power, install a Ac Schnitzel front lip, Some good Bose sub's and speakers...

    How much dose that add up to.

    I'd buy that twin turbo Ferrari Testarossa http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/forum...0hp+testarossa , get the body into prime condition and then buy a Fiat Multipla , I figure driving the Multipla afterwards would be the only thing that could get that ridiculous, crazed smile off my face.

    Use it to tow the Ferrari to the track.
    That would be worth seeing, everyone taking the piss until they see what's on the trailer.
    NOPE, wouldnt' work, it didn't matter WHAT it was towing it's still an ugly car and not even who was driving it would make a difference. It IS ugly !!!!

    This is kind of tuff...

    I think I'd either buy the nicest R34 V-Spec II Skyline I could find, in black or paint it black, then use the rest for mods. Or buy an 03' Cobra Mustang and make it as mean as I could.

    It would just depend on whether or not I could fit all the costs of buying the Skyline into my budget. If not the Mustang would be my back up plan.
    Most wanted cars:

    Ford GT, Aston Martin DB9, Nissan Skyline R-34 V-Spec II, 2004 SVT Cobra Mustang, VW Golf R32, TVR Cerbera 4.5, Ford Focus RS, Aston Martin Vanquish S

    Still waiting.....Shelby Cobra, Shelby GR1, 2006 Ford Lightning, Next generation SVT Mustang Cobra 2006? Mazda Speed RX8

    i think i'd buy some nachos.

    ok, a lot of nachos.


    seriously...i think i'd get my car up and running. I'd probably design my own car...custom chassis, suspension out of a subaru or something...midengined 20b, probably an audi tranny. I'd stick with my own body or maybe an avenger/valkyrie.....goddamn, that would be amazing.

    If not that, maybe an STI and a gt40 replica...31+65...that's about 100k.
    And Iraaaaaaaaaaaan

    Iran's so far awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...

    ROR

    4 x 2002 Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 Type S - Tiptronic.

    1) 1 with minor mods, Wheels, induction, etc.
    2) 1 with major mods, developing 400 hp

    and 2 spares in storage for longevity.

    I should then at least get 20 years out of my dream car(s)
    We work to live, and to live is to drive a BMW 330i at speed.
