    Shawn,

    That's a top list, sir. Especially the all being in black part. You inspired me to look at my choices again, and although it's rather non-Fcar centric, I can't really change much. Perhaps I would change my choice of classic to a 250GTO (I believe there are two black ones in the world but I don't suppose they will ever be for sale - not for less than ten million dollars anyway). For me, almost all of the cars you list are covered by having an Enzo, as I doubt the driving experience is sufficiently different between them - and having a 575GTC (full-on racecar) would be much better for me as sooner or later all road-legal cars are a disappointing compromise...

    It's all very personal, and if I were allowed a top twelve instead of just six, you've definitely supplied the list of my next six, if I didn't have one of the new GT40s or a 430 CS in black instead of two of those.... ah, but which two?

    Like your proposal for keeping the fleet clean !

    gee, this is alot harder than I thougt. Choosing one or 20 cars would be easier, six is many but not plenty...

    But anyways, this is what i came up with:

    mc12 - well, theres not that many colors available are there...
    Zonda roadster - burgundy red/beige (every day car :D )
    F 612 - black/beige ("the luxury sedan")
    F 360 cs - tdf/red (I'd like to say wifes car, but dont have one...)
    F 250 gt california spyder swb - red/beige (it is just sooooo beutiful)
    Chevrolet avalanche - (We have winter here)

    Somehting must be wrong with you man. Anycar in the world, and you pick a viper and a prowler,seriously...........I guess the world is full of drifferent minds. Myt first answer I dont know is correct, I would also like to have classic Ferrari such as the GTO, 400 Super America, and 250. Those are beautifl cars.

    FerrariLord...that's why they are MY choices, not yours! Would be a terrible thing if all minds were alike over cars...or anything else for that matter. I know nothing about classic Ferraris and have no interest in them. There is nothing faster in a straight line than a 1200 rwhp Viper...street legal. The Prowler is strictly a "retro" thing, having grown up with 40s and 50s street rods.

    I assure you there is nothing wrong with me. Good luck in finding the cars you desire. I know I will have all of mine!

    geez, man, I meant no offense. Didnt think you ould get soo upset about it. Sorry, I dint mean to sound so criticizing, hope were cool mate. Different opinions are what make the world a better place. You get your viper, I get my 360 with novitec rosso tuning kit and tubi exhaust, and I will smoke you on the streets. Fine with me. AHAHh, just messing with ya. That actually would eb a tight race. Although I think Ferrari would prevail on the curves(if there were any).

    No offense taken. Everything is cool. If you look through all the posts in this thread, most people have listed classics and many cars I've never heard of. But, that is what they want in THEIR garage and that is what this is all about.

    Actually, I'm thankful for my blessings and ability to make my garage a reality. In fact, the cars will be there...just waiting for the house and garage to be built. I raised three Corvettes in a place without a garage and will never do that again. It would be a crime to have cars like that and have to keep them parked outside...LOL.

    As to the 360 vs Viper...not even a contest. I specifically said "in a straight line" and no Ferrari is going to run an 8 sec 1/4...period. But, then they are totally different cars and each are great for their own purpose. I'm not here promoting one over the other.

    Wow, this is so much harder then I thought. It's so hard to chose, since I've never driven any of these cars (save for a Cayenne S).
    1. 1997 Mclaren F1 LM (only one color available: Papaya orange, I would not change that)
    2. 1996 Ferrari F50 (gotta have this red, maybe with powder coated rims)
    3. 2004 TechArt GT Street S (some wild color with very dark rims)
    4. Lamborghini Diablo GT (orange ext. black int. and very dark rims)
    5. I'm in love with the 360CS now, but a modified BMW M3 CSL (E46) is there too!
    6. 2005 Gemballa Porsche Cayenne Turbo as the utility vehicule. (trip black)

    This was harder than I thought. I can think of about 6 more Ferrari's I would have added.

    1. '85 308GTSi QV, red (an icon from my generation)
    2. Aston Martin Vanquish, black/tan (name says it all)
    3. Porsche 993 cabrio, black (air cooled - no P-car since has done it for me)
    4. Land Rover Defender 90 (in case it rains)
    5. 246GTS, red (sexier than Jag E-type by far, IMO)
    6. 1955 Porsche Speedster, black/red (another icon)

    The practical car can sit outside if I have all this in the garage. ;)

    Gee, where have I seen this list before?

    Wonder where the SA would fit in if you're only allowed 6? Or the Enzo replacement?
