What kind of car would you buy if.....
« on: October 24, 2004, 12:09 AM »
you could spend up to $100,000 and you had to drive the car every day?   You have to pay for the insurance and the gas, etc. 

I went and saw Taxi tonight and really thought the BMW 760 looked pretty sharp.  Not sure of the price, I haven't looked yet. 

I'll have to do some digging for other vehicles, but at the moment I really want an Infiniti G35 two door.  My kids big enough she can crawl into the back through a single door.  All wheel drive, decent economy for the engine, looks pretty sharp.  I'm sure I'll stumble on a more expensive car for fantasy purposes, but right now that one sticks in my mind.   How about you?

I'd have two cars.
One, a Jeep Wrangler.


Two, a BMW 330 Ci


Since these are only going for about $75,000, I'd get one of these, if the insurance wouldn't kill me.

Up to $100,000!  Heck, I could have a nice small car & a good down payment on a house! I would love to have my Honda Civic back.  :'(

BTW, is that US or CDN?  :P

hmmm  my ideal car is actually a Corvette ZR1. The 1991 version was a 25th anniversary edition I believe of the Stingray/ZR1 design and was I think the last year of the ZR1 design, so that's what I would go with. Cherry red convertible of course :)

Chrysler Sebring Convertible.

Economical gas mileage, sporty looks, speed/power without an outrageously costly engine, reliable in every way, dependable in winter conditions/bad roads, and of course a lovely convertible.  Pain in the ass to maintain the tops, but worth it IMO.

Now...  If we still have the leftover cash, I'm gonna nab a Corvette Stingray too...  79'll do.  Or a restored 59 Thunderbird convertible.  That's a classy weekend ride.

Infinity G35


or

Nissan 350z


They're more or less the same thing so I'd have to test drive to decide...but I could save tens of thousands of that 100,000 and get the car that I want and get it fully loaded.

If money were no object, I would want a Moller M400 Skycar


Right now, the cost is just under a cool mil.

$100K?  Well, the Volkswagon Touareg was cool, and clocks in under $50K.



And then there's the 2005 Mustang that's coming out.  It's kind of a throwback to the Mustang Fastback.  It comes in under $30K. 



So if the limit is $100K, those are the cars I'd choose.
