    Your dream garage

    If money were no object what would you include in your line up?

    Personally if I won the lottery or struck it rich I would :-

    • Keep my s14a and spare no expense on making improvements
    • Buy a left hand drive Porsche Panamera Turbo S to tour Europe
    • Have a cheap daily to park anywhere and not worry about it
    • And buy something like a Lexus LC 500 for uk road trips


    I love super cars but they are too “look at me” for my taste these days, no 458’s on my horizon anymore

    I have to say, for the first time in a long time I'm actually pretty pleased with my fleet and there's nothing I much want to swap in if things stay as are.

    However, if I won the lottery and there was plenty of money to splosh about - it would have to be a P1, wouldn't it?

    If it were a more modest win I'd probably go with buying a nice house in the country with a barn and get some stuff that I've wanted for a while:
    Integrale
    Ferrari 355
    Alfa Junior / Lancia Fulvia
    Porsche 964 (just so I can appreciate how much better and therefore undervalued my 996 is )
    Caterham / Morgan 3 Wheeler
    Lotus Exige
    Mustang / Charger et al


    Bikes - not sure I'd swap at the mo; I love them both and don't really need anything else.

    This would be very difficult and my list would change on a regular basis because I change my mind often about what I like. However as of right now now, I have grown up slightly (although not a great deal) and assuming a substantial lottery win although not totally unlimited funds. If it was unlimited then there are very few cars that wouldn't find him their place into a large barn somewhere a la Jay Leno style!

    Audi RS6 Avant for Bex and daily duties - taking the kids to school, shopping, dog walking etc.

    Some form of mad off roader - Bowler wildcat kinda but more seats. Very modified V8 Defender probably. Or a Merc AMG G-Wagon.

    Ariel Atom 3. This is a staple for my list.

    Likewise a couple of classics to preserve for posterity. I'd love a Lamborghini Miura SV but they are 1.5m or so now for a decent one.

    A "chairs and flares" Dino 246 GT too. For my Dad as it's his absolute favourite car of all time and he's going through a really crappy time at the moment. I just wish I could do more to help him.

    Then a couple of things to play with. R32 Skyline, RX7 and an S15 as they are all ones I really like. Probably a 205 GTi and maybe a Cosworth but not decided which.

    I could go on and on with a list of cars I'd like!

    I’m the past I would have definitely wanted a lot of cars as part of a collection but being realistic about how much each car would/could get driven is why I’ve changed my mind.

    I quite like my current car collection, but maybe an MZR Roadsports 240Z with an OS Giken TC24-B1Z and a Giulia Quadrifoglio

    I think I've grown up too much...

    Would be a top of the line xc90 and transit custom for dirty work.

    Then probably a capri done to a similar spec as the hoonicorne, but done by myself would mean much more than an off the shelf super car

    Nice collection,
    But can I disagree?

    Audi Quattro Rally instead of an Integrale.
    355 aren’t great below 70mph, a retomod 308 GTB
    Lancia Stratos
    I’d want a Porsche nut 911R

    You couldnt be more wrong, but what do I know?

    As with Actual Ben, Im very pleased with my current lineup, despite many hours pondering I cant see where I could do much better without spending loads of money:

    F355
    V10 Phaeton
    Sorted 135i trackcar
    Mk3 2ZZ MR2 trackcar
    Mk 7.5 Golf GTI

    Im leaning more and more to getting a 200 as a driftcar as I miss them days and maybe a crazy classic like a Citroen SM, the dream (and the reality) is actually having more space to put them all in

    My dream garage, one with a bar.

    Ok and
    Every day use, my MX5 i would keep as its fkin great.
    Also an alpina thingy - the not the BMW one the Renault thing
    Either a top end Atom or the off road thiing they build - in fact both
    For comfy use, some sort of top end Rolls or Bently. With every option
    A decent pickup with a big flatbed and double cab for when i want to dispose of the bodies.

    An Alfa so i can set fire to it, i fecking hate them - crap built junk.
    No s14 as to be honest its crap compared to todays stuff but i might have to have an SR20det in something, like .... i dunno (an MX5)

    Mr Cooke. May I make a polite request to stop reading my mind??? It seems we have very very similar tastes. Although I still cannot bring myself to sit in anything with a Vauxhall badge.

    I know what you mean about the Cobra. I had the chance to use one for a couple of days a few years ago but I couldn't get my knees under the dash! Bex, unfortunately, fitted perfectly... guess what she wants now! Told her if we ever so, it'll have to be a replica. But a good replica!

    Bar the original topic of this thread, it's unlikely I will ever be able to afford a real one.

    You have decent taste in cars mate cobras are some of the most pretty cars out there imo.

    Opel manta and mercedes cosworth would also be considerations

    The father in laws best mate owns DB replicas, they were the biggest replica Cobra builders in Europe a few years back.

    He worked there for a while and they pumped out some very very nice examples.... unfortunately I do not fit at all comfortably in the pilots seat and very comical in the passenger side, so only with an unlimited pot where I could make one with a 10% scale up all round would it be a viable option for me, being a fat shit wipes a few options out... stratos/R8/Westfield/rs200 are some I know I don't fit in at all, having tried
