    You could get one or get as many cars as you can get, what would be in your garage???
    For me
    1. Red/Black-Red Ferrari 355 around $80K ( simply the best )
    2. Silver/Red BMW M Coupe Around $30K ( a must, big smile, daily driver )
    3. Black or maybe Red/ Black Porsche 911 Speedster around $50k ( best open top )
    4. Black/Black Porsche 928 GTS around $35k. ( best GT of all time )
    5. $55k for the mods on my toys.

    Buy a 1/5 Enzo (Rear end perferred) and parked in my garage. Wait til that 4/5 of the money comes, buy the rest and hire the best chop shop to weld them together.

    I'm with Allan, if I had 250k cash sitting around the first thing is investments and I'll get back to you when I have around 500-600k to spill on cars.

    Now if its 250k worth of cars, I'd go pick myself up a Porsche 356 1600 super speedster.

    For $200K or so, I could get a 6-pack of 308's and still have some change left over.


    Why 'spend' that amount of money just to fill a garage? Purchase one good car, and let the rest of the money work for you.

    Hi Allan, some people have a hard time to decide whether to invest or to spend it

    I'm with Agent Smith - 355 + E55. But really, Allan has the best idea - get back to work and invest the 250k wait a few years.

    In the spirit of the question, I'd buy a Challenge Stradale as my track and good-conditions daily driver and a Honda Pilot or Acura MDX (or similar mid-size SUV) as my bad conditions daily driver and hauler.

    I tried one of these threads last week (Dream garage 6 cars ONLY). I love these kind of threads, they are fun to see people's answers, as well as see who doesn't want to play by the rules.

    I'll assume that I suddenly received an inheritance today of $250k that stipulated it had to be spent on vehicles immediately, use it or lose it, and all of my other vehicles were confiscated.

    '95 355B ($80k)
    '96 456GT ($75k)
    '01 M-B M430 (driver) ($30k)
    '01 Boxster (toy for wife) ($30k)
    '04 M-B C-class (driver for wife) ($35k)

    Or if I could only have the garage space I have now...
    '96 355 Spyder ($93k)
    '04 M-B C-class 4Matic (driver for wife) ($45k)
    '01 M-B M55 (driver) ($40k)
    '04 MV Agusta F4 1+1 ($20k)
    '02 Ducati 998 ($12k)
    '94 Ducati 888 LTD ($12k)
    '91 Bimota Tesi ($18k)
    '93 Moto Guzzi Daytona ($10k)

    $250 is just about right for a down payment for a house on the peninsula in San Francisco Bay Area. I am happy with the cars I have.

    The point was to SPEND 250k on cars!! You investors crack me up. Reminds me of the line from Mr. Burns (Simpsons). "You know Smithers.. I have billions and billions, but I'd give it all up for just a little bit more". Anyway,my picks.

    Ferrari 246 GT (80k)
    Ducati 999S (20k)
    Custom Chopper (50k)
    Ferrari 355 GTS (97k)
    Moped (3k)

    The first day I would ride the piss out of the Moped - most fun of the whole group.

    1995 (The last year of production) 928 GTS.....with the 5 speed. Money would be no object on "this" car.....I'd find the neatest and best one in the world and never sell it again.

    1999 Mercedes S600 sedan.

    1987-89 Testarossa.

    I'd invest the other $100K in real estate.....without a garage.....heh.
