I would buy a used truck for doing bullshit. An s class for fancy date night. An original cobra replica for the lady. MAYBE a used gt-r or viper or something. And that's it.

Black SuperAmerica with the manual trans, GTC handling package, and a tan, brown, or red interior. They only made ~30 manual cars in any color, I know at least one of them is black, may be 2 or 3 exist. Drove an F1 trans one last week, I love the roof setup, just a goldilocks street car for me, right amount of everything.
koenigsegg literally makes some of the most revolutionary cars right now and they don't buy into the marketing bs like ferrari and shit. They could easily put a dual clutch/hybrid system into their cars, but they said fuck that because it's worse and they know it. they build cars not based on what the accountants will sell the most cars, and that's what makes them the best right now.
They also lead the industry in terms of research right now lol.
>his dream Chevelle doesn't have a 396 or 454
This is bait.
Same, but I'd wait for the hardtop version. I'd buy any and all performance upgrades. Buy a decent house and take care of my family. Start a small performance shop that specializes in Mazda vehicles. Be comfy as fuck for life.
I'd get a three cylinder Geo metro.
Oh fuck I remember these things.
It was my sister's first car when she was in highschool.
>beat to shit, hardly taken care of
>little to no pick-up

Why this, apart from memes, anon?

I'd split nearly all of my money into my brother and sisters bank accounts. I'd take the remaining 5k cash and let it fly behind me as I hoon through town, If I die I know I'll make it to Valhalla shiny and chrome.
Im not poor and I graduated jr high so I dont play the lottery
But i would end up with $100 million in cars and start a museum
>No automatics allowed
tbph I would pick the Panini
not based on performance but because it looks sexy and because the high price and rarity means its something I couldn't afford otherwise(while with a Fireblade or something I could save up and actually buy it without lotto shekels)
Land rover defender 110
Custom Legacy power wagon
Model T pick up
Wrc Volkswagen polo
Mercedes amg gt
Alfa romeo 4c
66 impala with turbonique booster axle
Fiero with a bodykit
And last but not least Blow thousands on making my cutlass supreme the best in the world
It's $2. If you can't afford to spare $2 you're too poor to modify a car anyways. Also "gain" what? On a fucking street car? Go faster? who gives a shit, it's a crappy street car (concerning 99.9% of /o/)
I don't play lotto, but I see people waste money on way more retarded shit with no value. At least you have a small chance to win something.
>start a business with the occasional $2
>everyone wants to start a business
>90% of businesses don't fail miserably in less than 2 years
LOL the logic in these lotto threads is hilarious.
Your chances starting a successful business with 2$ are honestly way higher than winning the lotto. Thats 2 months of website hosting. But obviously with your defeatist attitude you're completeley hopeless.
But car parts HAVE value. Its a liability not an asset but its better than a 2x2 scrap of paper plus the time wasted buying it.
Giving it to a homeless person, at least some of the lotto money goes to state infrastructure.
>your chance of starting a business with $2 that will allow you to take home $300+million are lower than winning the lottery
Anyone can start a business. Very, very, very few will make you that kind of money. Also your argument is fucking retarded. There are thousands of things people "waste" money on. Who cares?
I own my own business. But I'm not dumb enough to think you can start a ridiculously successful one with $2 god damn dollars. And again, not everyone WANTS to start a business. Faggot.
With all those dollarydoos you best be starting off with the ugliest piece of shit Craigslist special you can find. Rescuing at least one from the cold grip of ricers is a noble deed.
>that's why it's called GAMBLING.
>parts have value but car modifications do not outside mahh feels
Lrn the difference.
>ITT people crying about others spending $2 for fun
>while buying mcdonalds
>buying girls gifts
>buying air fresheners
The idiots ITT are astounding. Technically almost everything is a "waste" of money.
Would feel so good scraping off illest stickers and removing the inevitable katana shifter
Show me a business that put ZERO dollars into it (including labor hours, because time aint free nigga, bills gotta be paid) and made the owner hundreds of millions in TAKE HOME pay. I'll wait.
V8 pre emissions landbarge/mid size, pay mechanic to make it reliable and daily drive-able and spend the rest on fuel and travelling
Thats great and all, but they dont produce enough cars to be relevant. Its like DeLorean in my eyes. They make some super cool shit, but even with 500,000,000 dollars, there is still someone out there who will outbid you for the rare as fuck One:1. All of Koenigsegg's new cars are straight up memes and they made like 3 trillion different versions of the Agera to stay relevant.
That's the entire fucking point. Time is money. So EVERY business takes money. Because why you were making NO MONEY, you were still paying bills. So MONEY supported you while you were getting a business up and running. And people don't make HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars on instagram. And cameras cost money, phones cost money, internet cost money. So again, it's not ZERO dollars. LRN2Business
nah ill still dress like a poor cunt, only carry 20 dollar bills, go on about muh dads car,pack wallet full of 10 dollar fuel receipts, bitch at prices, and whinge about how long its taking. Then complain at service and wont recommend him anywhere. I aint telling him shit about my winnings and what i have on me
Fear and loathing inspired roadtrips and hookers every single fucking day, then buy myself into presidency and rape my people
>'91 mitsubishi eclipse awd
>all bought as cheaply as possible and then not only restored but modernized to be OBDII compliant and easier to work on while keeping weight low because fuck safety
>buy an aventador at some point because why the fuck not
>put the rest into trying to help AI development and techniques for more efficient third world industry
F-type, I need something awesome yet tasteful to show up in for purchasing everything else.
Buy as many the NA Miatas from all over the world. Preserve them from track hoons and stance fags of the earth.
Work on restoring them all to stock glory. Every last one.
>not slower. heavier. uglier.
I would buy this for my girlfriend
then I would buy my cappuccino and go touge with her
I have no idea but I'd build a workshop and a house first.
Small, enough space for everything I need and noting I don't. No bullshit. Somewhere to eat and sleep
Big enough to store a few cars
Every tool I'd ever need
Covered wash bay outside
Well lit detailing area inside
Then I would probably get a beat up old Land Rover Defender 90 and a trailer to haul back whatever car takes my fancy. Then probably a 2003-2009 Subaru Legacy wagon as a daily. Oh and lots of kei cars.
>Find the nicest NSX near me
>immediately buy it
a Z06 and a R35
then throw both of them off a cliff
>not changing it into pennies and throwing them all at cyclists
>Buy Dodge viper
>get a transmission fabbed up to install the v10 into the rear of the corolla.
>Remove corolla's engine for extra lightness on front in.
I would leave a trail of smoke any time I pressed the gas from my fwd rear engine v10 corolla.
The aussies would be proud.
I've won hundreds of $$ in the lottery before. Not every win is the grand prize you mongloid. So if I've bought 2 tickets a month for about 2 years, that's $48. I won $100 once and I won my $2 back quite a few times. So looks like I'm ahead. Rather that buy a soda or some shit, I buy a ticket for the SMALL chance (no shit) of a jackpot, and the way more likely (in comparison) chance to win a couple dollars. It's fun, and cost the same as your mom fo a night, so who gives a shit?
I like cars based on how they look.
I still have another ~$499,995,000.
I can incredibly reasonably blow $10,000,000 a year and still make money.
That's $10,000,000 a year to buy or make whatever car I want.
But go ahead, use your money in an unsustainable way.
(I would use about 8 million to buy a few thousand acres and build a speed bowl)
Right after chartering a private jet to the US to claim my RICH AS BALLS Green Card, a Ram 5500, because to build a house you need tools, and to trailer lots of expensive cars home you need a hauler.
>3500 will tow three cars on a long trailer
>buys a 5500 to be cucked by doge company
Man, you would get got day 1 of winning.
>getting a green card in the US so you get raped by taxes in a shitty country
>not getting your cash and bailing
It's the only noteworthy country on another continent, and my lotto winnings would've been taxed in my home country already, making it wealth instead of income by the time I reach the US, and wealth isn't taxed.
>wealth isn't taxed
lol welcome to the new america where it will be in no time. Also, you go to a shit country like vietnam, brazil whatever. Then your 150mil is about the same as 10 billion. You build a super safe compound and enjoy the power you will have in that country.
You're a prisoner of your wealth if you're stinking rich in a country where you have to live in a protected compound and can only enter the public with body guards in an armored vehicle. What's the fucking point of living like that?
Uhhhh extrapolation. Vietnam isn't known for kidnapping people and brazil isn't mexico (protip tons of rich dudes have land in brazil), and no one knows you're rich you faggot. Super safe compound is from theft, not kidnapping. Have you ever traveled before?
>movie are real life
>brazil isn't mexico
That's correct, Brazil is worse.
Since I would be able to afford two, I'd get one of these and put a ridiculous amount of miles on it.
I live in walking distance of a mercedes dealer so I'd head over and buy a SL65 or AMG GT or SLR or whatever is the best thing on the lot.
Then I'd go stop light race some faggots.
I'd buy this, OP. After reading about concept cars I now know what I want. The 1963 Ford Thunderbird Italien Concept. If I can't buy it, I'll pay engineers to make another one
The lowest mileage E39 M5 I can find, and buy a huge stockpile of parts that will soon be discontinued. Also would buy a 1999-2001 740i M sport right from BMW forcing them to produce one new for me.
As far as I'm concerned I only need 3 cars, a V8 miata fun car, an old beater pickup truck for work/severe snow, and then maybe an S class or a Tesla to DD
1993 Cobra R
And i would actually drive it. I would buy one of the many sub-1k mile examples and drive the shit out of it.
I mean look at this. Ford only sold these cars to people who had valid racing licenses and intended on racing them, yet most of them ended up like this; sitting in some asshole's collection for 20+ years barely being driven 3 miles a year. What a shame...
>only sold to people with racing licenses
>TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY FIVE HORSEPOWER
I'd buy a showroom mint as I could find it 1973 Ford Gran Torino sportsback with a 351 Windsor 4bbl and a 4 speed.
Would it be some track setting super car? Nah, or even some true streetlight warrior. But banging through the gears and listening to it gurgle around before pulling into a Sonic for a bigass greasy burger with my girl sounds like way more fun than having my epeen sucked on the internet while I post supercars.net times and bread on hood pics.
Ahaha but seriously.. I have bought a 1986 corolla for $250 just to get acquainted and learn shit.. I just replaced the master brake cylinder and have no brakes so gravity bleeding it right now. I'm so lost
Also would steelstik epoxy fix an exhaust leak
>can't justify buying slow foxbody
Not the guy you were replying to but i have a solution.
>buy foxbody as personal car
>buy Snek ACR and destroy everyone while they complain about how you're too fast cause "wahh race car"
>Powerball officials said Thursday the upcoming drawing would be worth an estimated $700 million. That would best the previous jackpot record, a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot won in March 2012.
Holy fucking shit
That's a $430M lump sum payout
1968 Fiat Dino Coupè in Forest Green.
I Know it's not the Flashiest classic but I fell in love with it at my first classic car show.
that picture was taken at probably the best car museum in the world. i used to go there probably every month with my dad in his classic cars. that place has some amazing history.
Volkswagen Golf GTI.
Then I'd talk to my financial advisor, get things sorted out elsewhere, and then probably get a truck, lease a Mercedes S65 AMG (if they do that with that model), and buy either an Audi R8 or an MB AMG GT S.
2 trophy trucks, One gas and one electric with cameras and remote control ability. Need the remote control ability so I can use it to shuttle my bike and I in the mountains. Plus a life sized RC car would be hella fun.
Probably a 458. Or a Hurracan. Or even an Aventador. I'd have to check out the difference in fuel efficiency.
And while this is going on I would order an EV DeLorean.
Forget fuel efficiency. I've driven all three. Av is a party trick, Hu is like driving with a logitech without the force feedback, and the 458 is a perfect supercar. Consider the 488gtb its a 458TT with 50% more downforce.
I didn't even read it. I did however read the car and driver interview with an owner on what actually owning one is like. Which I'll assume is more trustworthy of a review.
He's also retarded. Lot's of people own Ferraris and most of them are pieces of shit. That said Ferrari is the most prolific maker of racing cars, sports cars, and supercars of the last century. I'll drop 5-6k a year keeping a 35-40k Ferrari in my driveway despite whatever one of the most hated car collectors thinks.
I'd buy every PT Cruiser I could find that was for sale, then make offers to the remaining owners that they couldn't refuse until I ran out of money. I'd save just enough money to have every one of them crushed and scrapped.
I'd buy my dad and I a house, pay off all the debt from my mom's cancer treatment, and THEN I would buy an AMG G63 for my dad and an AE86 (fully restore it to stock glory) for me. I'd probably also buy a brand new STI as a DD or something. Also I would finally be happy.
I would go buy/have build pic related.
Don't care if it costed a couple a million. I just want a ED Falcon in 5.0 Touring Car specs. Would also get a matching VP Commodore built by Larry Perkins too.
an F450 Platinum, and then a large enclosed trailer, and then I'd start buying cars.
