  • You got one choice only

    So think it over long and hard. No taking it back. You just won the power ball for the largest jackpot ever. You tucked away the vast majority so you wouldn't squander it. You are allowing yourself one motorized earth based vehicle as a toy. You are limited to $50,000,000 to spend but it is on one vehicle only. You do not have to spend the whole amount. I made it outrageous so you could pick the one you wanted. I don't care if it's a $4,000 Yugo. Pick what you want BUT……..you must explain why this IS THE ONE….and post a picture.

    Ferrari 308GTS

    It's the car I had on my wall when I was 14, it's fast enough for me (I can rent something faster if I want), and since I've been actually researching the costs to restore one I might need all the allotted money to do it.


    It's a beautiful automobile:

      Dodge is coming out with a 6-cylinder diesel next year for the 1500 Ram. 30 MPG.

      I could get a crew cab 4X4 with lots of goodies for 50 grand.

        OR...since I'v won the lottery, and now have a well-equipped welding shop, I could build my own vehicle.

        Imagine this:




        ...only built around the drivetrain of a front-wheel-drive vehicle, something large like a minivan. Airfoil-shaped wheel pants on the front wheels. Polished aluminum hull. Painted in a WWII fighter scheme with invasion stripes.

        Yeah, I could do that for 50K.

          I want a 2013 Ford because it's an American car. I didn't want anything too sporty, but something nice looking. Here we go.

            If I'm going to get a penis, I want it to look like one.

              I'm quite a bit more inclined to get a fat turbodiesel duelly crew-cab, thinking about it. Probably a Dodge just because I like the Cummins engine. If I only get one choice of vehicle, I think I'd rather have something that I know I can use for anything.

              Absent that, I would probably wind up getting something practical-but-crazy, like a really tricked-out M5 or an AMG S-class. It would be fun to have a Veyron or a Pagana roadster or something like that, but the fact is that I'd still have to do things like go to the grocery store from time to time, and what fun is a car that can take you somewhere at 200 MPH if it doesn't even have enough cargo space to carry a change of underwear and a toothbrush to spend the night?

                  I think I'd go with an Earthroamer solar outfitted XD-HV, the big Muther.

                  XD-HV in the back

                  Here's the "smaller" version. I saw one in person this year while camping up here. Rediculous bullet proof looking self contained rig.

                        Mine will be either a Lamborghini Reventon





                        Or the Aston Martin DB9






                        But a very close third for me is an American machine.

                          Oh, so the $50K limit was just a suggestion.

                            Fifty million, not fifty thousand.


                            It's sort of like Washington rounding.

                              Unless I read it wrong, I believe it was 50 million.

                              50K doesn't buy a well equipped AWD Ford Taurus any more.
