Your Dream Stable

Dreamin' time. You win a door prize at Bill Gates' party. Bill will buy you any 10 automobiles. you can't sell them, and he'll insure them indefinitely. new or used or classic, but you have to actually be able to buy them somewhere.

so, what's on your list?

Amazingly cool dep't: "what ten cars would you have" was a thread on the pre-Internet Cellar, and resulted in ASCII pictures of the vehicles, in one case.

"This is something that comes up every 10 years"

Anyway my ten, this time, would be divvyed as such (and this took some research):

-- utility dep't

Ford F350: Or similar big-ass pickup truck, for those occasions when shit needs to be hauled and you don't know how much shit or hauled how far.

Panel truck: As above, but you don't know in what weather. Panel truck, you know, the big boxy trucks, basically moving vans that are small. This is largely a band-related item, so I wouldn't expect anyone else to pick it. You can rent this kind of thing, but it would be cool to have it always available. Plus it could be additional home storage in a pinch.

The biggest-ass RV you can find: These will go out of style soon due to gas price, since they get like 4 MPG. But if Gates is going to get you one, you might as well get the mother of them all -- because you never know when you might need to pull up stakes fast, and if you do, you want to haul luxury quarters with you.

Luxury Passenger Bus: Can I get 50 people to a comedy club in Atlantic City? Or to an Eagles game? I don't know 50 people, but I would like to know somebody who does and wants to give them a treat.

-- Everyday driver dep't

Mercedez-Benz S600 - This $145,000 sedan would be a nice way to spend the daily 20 mph traffic jam. Park it at the end of the lot to avoid door dings.

Mini Cooper S, with racing modifications - Jacquelita's brother races this vehicle semi-pro, and it seems like the ultimate "pocket rocket", the perfect car for late-night convenience store runs.

-- Special items

Bugatti Veyron - Its pointless to make something like this your daily car - the cops will look specifically for it, and will stop you just to brag they did it. But if you have ten cars, and don't get the fastest one available so you can take it out once a year and shit yourself silly just taking it through a turny road, what's the point of living? Of course you get the fastest car. Of course.

Toyota Land Cruiser - What I really want in this category is some big-ass thing that's gonna be able to manage some fairly serious, although not outrageous, off-road concerns and haul 4-5 people with serious baggage. If the nuke plant has gone off and we need to extricate the household, this is the one we choose: it packs in everything and hauls ass, across country or at least median strip if need be.

Harley-Davidson Screamin' Eagle Road King - I don't have a clue what this is, I just Google'd "biggest harley" and this is what came up.

Vespa scooter: because if the price of fuel goes utterly off the scale, at least I'll have a way to get around.

I pondered buying the new Chevy HHR panel version. It just looks sharp to me for some reason and can haul shit. So then I decided to go with a small coupe...go figure.

I saw a 240z in a magazine that a guy had dropped a Chevy small block in!
