Following on from the three car garage thread, how about if you have £1m to spend on cars, what would you buy?

The rules are simple:

1. You can keep any cars you already own but you must include them in the list at the current market value.

2. You can’t buy any more cars for another 10 years so you need to consider (or forego) practical requirements.

3. You can blow the lot on one car, or you can fill an aircraft hanger, but you must not spend more than £1m in total.

4. You can spend some of the money on modifications, but you can’t use any money left over for other things.

5. You don’t have to worry about secure storage, and you are not limited by the amount of storage space available.

I’m looking forward to hearing your replies!

If for an investment I’d buy £1m worth of V8 petrol cars. They will soon be collectors cars with a hefty price tag.

whether they’ll be motion lotion to fuel them in the future remains to be seen. 🥴

Cripes. Why are California's so cheap? I know "girls buy them," but surely they can't be THAT bad ?
 
Mrs Ant did a drawing of a 959 for me when we were both 14. I loved that car back then. Looks hideous now. 😔
Mrs Dazzler and I sat next to each other in English class at around that time.

One of the English books we’ve kept is mine and includes a magazine style article about the Volkswagen Corrado and it’s active rear spoiler!

We have a few of Mrs D’s books too, and between each others scribbles and messages are sketches of Beetles and Campervans drawn by yours truly.

Wonderful memories to look back on Rob. 👏👏👏👏

Unfortunately Deb & I never shared the same classroom. Our school reports tell the reason why. Opposite ends of the brain cell scale. 😁

Same story here, only in the same class for English. I was much better behaved in English than any other class 😀
