    As the title says, what would we find in there?

    Make it simple;

    To and from work,
    Grocery getter and school (for SWMBOAAT) :lol:,
    Weekend fun,
    Family thingy, those lovely daytrips,
    Pickup,
    4WD,
    Motorcycle,

    You know the stuff....ever thought about it (of course you have)?

    A George Beale replica 1964 Honda RC-174 (Muhuahaha) Distilled metalic engineering porn awesomeness. A pdf of the rebuild article http://greenbushacres.ca/Motorcycles/Engineering_Marvels/Honda_RC166/George_Beale_Honda RC174.pdf, ..if you think I am overstating the technological work contained in this bike, please read about the levels Sochiro Honda went too to win; Honda (the company) nowerdays doesn't even do it like this any more, opting for the easier option - even if its still equal to or better than most.

    A AC Superblower - with at least a 6L V8 (or a tuned bored n' stroked Suzuki V6 Vitara engine in it).

    A Saxon/Taylormade BEARS Triumph.

    A Ford Escort Mk2 (or the rarer than rocking-horse poo; a Ford Mexico) - last of the rear wheel drive Escorts.

    A converted hanger come appartment like Dirk Pitt's (a Clive Cussler character) to live, work, play and store things in.

    Hmmm...well-stocked workbench with all manner of woodworking and other general tools for tinkering. Doorway and staircase leading down to basement gun-room, gunsmithing workshop, and indoor/underground firing range (100 yards max, I'm not too picky). Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, and Amy Adams, scantily clad, covered in Hoppes #9, cleaning my vast collection of historical rifles, handguns, and automatic weaponry.

    Hey, we're dreaming, right?

    Mine would be a 2 side garage, hangar on one side, cars on the other, with plenty of work space and room for lots of photo backdrops so I could photograph anything I want indoors.

    Cars:
    1957 Chevy Bel Air
    1917 Ford Model T Coupe
    brand new Toyota Tundra Pickup for parts runs and tug
    1973 Dodge Dart
    1966 Jaguar XKE
    1949 Mercury
    1973 Datsun 240Z
    1982 Lamborghini Countach
    Probably an MG in there somewhere and a Mini Cooper too ( real one, not the BMW)

    Hangar side
    Beech Staggerwing
    T-34C Mentor
    C-47 Skytrain (travel with friends!)
    Piper Cub
    T-38 Talon
    Marchetti SF-260

    I'd probably get a helicopter in there for some gimbal mounted cameras for aerial photos too.

    That's a good start anyway. ;)

    Ok, I'm in!

    I'll start off with a former warehouse converted into my mancave...complete with fully stocked bar, audio visual eye candy and all that comes with it...

    Then to to the parking area (past the fully stocked shop, complete with all the nessecary tools equipment to make/do anything I feel like when I am not out happily wasting money on gas) where my stable of horsepower awaits my every whim.

    First, I want my 1939 Indian back (I was incredibly stupid for selling it) as well as my 1989 Katana 1100 (yeah, I sold this one, too) and what the heck, throw in a Hayabusa to round out the two-wheeled joy.

    I'll also have my old 1968 Chevelle back, this was a 835 horse beast that I roamed SoCal with in the late 80's...this would be nice parked next to a Vector M12.

    Add to that a sweet 1933 Ford three window coupe, a 1936 Packard coupe and a 1937 Cord 812 speedster.

    For serious off-roading, I'd lean towards a SdKfz 6 or SdKfz 10, and perhaps a 1973 Dodge power wagon for more practical applications...

    I like Eric's idea about the hangar, though I would have only one airplane, so I would probably keep 'er holed up at the local airfield...and that would be a Fw190A/8 :thumbleft:

    Like Eric, mine would have to be mostly hangar..
    Bristol F2b
    Viperjet
    Cessna 180 with STOL conversion, bush tyres, wing hard-points and hardly any radios or instruments.
    And some sort of 4-seat warbird (I'm thinking ME-108 or something like that)

    Cars? Not too fussy really, maybe an Aston Martin Vantage or something like that.

    Jaguar D type, BMW 2002 tii, that MAN military truck converted into a moving home, Yugo 60 (totally naked inside, with roll bar, just one seat, sport chassis), Ferrari Modena, Ford Mustang (the model just about to be phased out from production), Peugeot Boxer (passenger model), Lamborghini Miura, Lancia Fulvia, Honda S 2000,...
    Dang, so many fine cars to choose from. I second people's opinions about fine ladies polishing the cars.

    I'd be happy with a garage myself! (Hell, even just a flat of my own would be great! :) )

    It will actually run dual purpose as a golf cart for my golf course which is across from the hanger and the runway. :lol:

    There's just one thing missing. Where's the walk-in beer chiller? Don't tell me you drink it warm?
