What kind of cars do you hope to buy if you win the $800 million Powerball?
Plus a Corvette, GTR, Viper, FRS, and shitloads more.
I have no idea what to do with 800 million, considering I have no interest in status/a big house/hypercars/ancient classics. I'd probably hire a group of people in charge of donating 700 million $ to non-shitty charities.
With the left over 50 million? I dunno. Ford GT, Viper ACR, Ariel Atom 500, Radical RXC 500, everything else would be under 100,000 like the AE86, Volvo 850, Evo IX MR, etc.
I'd probably get my own private plane, since I already have a license and a multi rating. Maybe a Piper Navajo.
I'm obsessed with third-gen Firebirds, so I'm going to scour the entire US and buy every single one of them, just because.
One of these bad boys, and make it street legal

nigger for that money you could make your own fucking brand of cars. they could be the best damn cars in the world too.
or you could open several restoration garages/replica manufacturers, to keep the old cars alive.
Modern Porsche 911 Targa GTS for road trips.
S-Class for getting driven around in when I feel lazy or have other stuff to do.
911 Gt3 RS kitted out for competition in some sort of spec or club racing.
Lamborghini Diablo or Countach for that old-school death-machine experience.
RUF CTR in big-bird yellow for the same reason as the Lambo.
Toyota Tacoma TRD pro for hunting.
G65 for the wife.
A hidden garage full of base-spec boxster a to pass out to mistresses.
I'd make a brand that focuses on lightweight vehicles that have mechanical simplicity but high quality fit & finish, and focus on driver enjoyment. With weird quirks for that exotic appeal, like an expanding steering wheel to aid at lower speeds rather than power steering, and pop-up headlights that are actuated with a lever. Somewhere between 80's Japanese and Swedish cars.
Start with a 5-cylinder 3-door hatch, expand that platform to include 2/4/5 door variants before branching to other designs. Maybe maybe some "it just werks" commercial vans & trucks too.
First of all I'd order a coach built tow rig with a shortened Rolls-Royce Phantom body on a one ton platform so I could drive around the country and haul entires to my car collection home to at least get a little feeling of excitement and accomplishment as opposed to just getting them delivered to your door. Awful shop related, I don't have the time and patience right now to fuse the two models as actual models.
Then I'd go out and buy a Tesla Model S P90D for daily driving around town, and another one for my collection. Then I'd seek out the most pristine examples I can find of the Cadillac Type 61, the Cord 812, the Tatra 87 and the Citroen DS23 (with an earlier dashboard because the later ones are wholly unexciting), and only then would I even begin to think about sports cars.
The Germans got your back, not a Mazda though
