      You are going to need a stout trailer for a 4500lb car. Add 2000 for that. Then add another 250 for assorted gear, and you are really pushing it. Wouldn't be a great tow experience even if you squeak in under the rating.

      That is true, of course with stupid monies one could have a custom trailer built or something else silly. But you make a good point.

      Nobody says you can't be a bad operator and lose money in your business either.

      Start with: Porsche as daily driver, Ferrari as fun car, 7 series for wife
      Change: Aston Martin as new daily. Trade Ferrari for classic Porsche 930. Dump 7 series for reliable and understated Lexus.
      Add: American muscle car, after looking a thousands of potential variants (drive spouse crazy), settle on classic C2 Corvette convertible
      Build: More garage space
      Add: An electric car and a classic Datsun Roadster at two ends of the spectrum
      Add: A Cayman S for the track, a vintage motorcycle, and something weird and eclectic that nobody else owns
      Finally: succumb to the exotic car pull: McLaren
      Change: Decide to go all-in British and add a 60's Jaguar E-Type while selling the Corvette
      Watch: Look for another American Muscle car because you miss the Corvette.

      Then repeat as much as possible until spouse goes nuts and forces you to go live in your garage.

      My personal taste would be as follows

      classic - 61 Ferrari 250 gt California OR more realistic classic 65 mustang gt350

      daily(s) - ND Miata & Lexus LS 460 & C63 Black Series

      truck(s) - New ecoboost raptor setup for high speed off road and a classic dodge power wagon for low speed off road fun with a 12v cummins swapped in for good measure with all the money you can throw at it - towing a house ? no problem !

      race car - so many options. Ultimately I would probably settle on paul newman's old Datsun race cars. After watching this documentary - Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman (highly recommended by the way) I have much respect for him and the way he led his life! It would be an honor to own one of his race cars.

      Also I think I will take one of all of these group b rally cars just because why not...

      •Audi Sport Quattro RS 002.
      •Ford RS200.
      •Lada Samara S-proto.
      •Lancia ECV.
      •Toyota 222D (based upon MR2)
      •Opel Kadett Rallye 4x4/Vauxhall Astra 4S.
      •Peugeot 405 T16 GR.

      One can dream, no ?

      love this pic for so many reasons ! Great bike, the Toyota pickup with camper shell in the background(probably showroom fresh). You guys enjoying life ! A much simpler time in life I'm sure!
      Great pic !

      Makes me want a mid 80's Honda rc30 - I doubt my 6'2 body would fit on one though.

      Indeed it was a simpler time, when everyone needed a camper shell, lol. Great days spent on bikes in the 80s. And I lived through it despite ridiculously stupid riding apparel choices.

      That's why I keep one around, no matter what else finds it's way into the garage. A reminder of where I came from and a great conversation piece. Go get that Honda!!! Be THAT kind of rich guy!!

      It varies.
      05-16-2017 08:55 PM #90
      I would start by buying two trucks, a GMC Sierra Denali as a daily driver, and a Dodge with a Cummins as a tow rig. Then I would buy a nice trailer and spend a lot of time driving around rural America looking for old cars, a la our own Cripyfritter. I would also need a big garage/workshop for all the tools I would buy.

      In terms of an actual collection, depending on how rich I was, I would probably buy some cars with true historical significance, but mostly lots of old domestic stuff that no one really cares about anymore. And parts. Lots and lots of parts.

      If I'm being totally honest, I would probably end up like the people you see on American Pickers, so I would probably need to budget for a helper to keep my stuff somewhat organized.
      Now this was a superior machine. Ten grand worth of gimmicks and high-priced special effects. The rear windows lit up with a touch like frogs in a dynamite pond. The dashboard was full of esoteric lights and dials and meters that I would never understand.

      From some known experiences, the IRS sometimes frowns on that and considers your failing business a hobby which then falls under different tax rules. I think the general consensus was after 8 years the business generally gets deemed a hobby.

      A couple of super charged Range Rovers and I would never park properly.

      The super charged RR's would also be filled with puppies and merlot.

      As long as I had my own garage to mess with stuff it would probably be a never ending stream of junk piles, and another 5.0 Mustang convertible.

      I gotta say, some of the collector cars listed in the thread here probably require you to be "super rich" not "just rich".

      I'm always going to have my thirdgen Trans Am for the nostalgic factor. A newer Camry for everyday driving. A sport bike. I'm no longer into exotics other than the F40, but I would be interested in a RUF CTR2.
