An Alfa would be high on my list don't know the model's well enough but it would be bright red and fast. 69 Firebird HO convertible/455 HO RAM Air IV and M22, white with blue accents at one time I heard they made 12, and a lot more.

In reply to # 3470876 by tvrgeek I was thinking about the Cougar. Sweet, but maybe too raw. AH 3000 based if I remember.

I'm new to this model but from what I read it's Jag based. But considering it's a kit you could put anything in it that you want.... 2JZ? Or maybe a BMW straight 6?

I'm sure there is some Ferrari or other exotic which, if I saw one, I would like to have, but when I win the lottery, one thing I will definitely buy is a 56 Corvette. Actually, I wouldn't care if it was real or a "fake" one, a very accurate body kit with more modern drivetrain and suspension.

Without a doubt a 1968 Mustang Shelby GT500 KR. That's right I'm also a FORD guy.

Here's my MGB's stable mate: I owned it since new (1971)...

Although a De Tomaso Mangusta would also make a nice addition.

71 Triumph TR-6 (original owner)

Who wouldn't want to drive the car of their favorite cartoon character of their youth.

Love my car, but if I had the money I would buy this beauty and with no worries about what I spent, I would drive it everywhere!

Didn't one of these go for north of a million at one of the auctions?

I read a study once about so called "lottery dreams". One of the findings in the study kind of applies to this question. That is 80% of the things we say we would do if we won the big lottery are attainable right now. With a little planning and a certain amount of scaling, of course. The 2 biggest being quit your job and travel.

Having said that, how many of you can have your "dream" car now? Obviously that's not going to be the multi-million dollar cars or the ones that are simply not out there. But I think most of us are already working towards our dream cars. They're in our garages and driveways.

My friends and family say that if I won the lottery I'd have the nicest MG ever. Where I'm sure I'd still have a collection of them truthfully I'd have a Porsche. I don't even know what it's called but it's the one that goes like 250mph. But scaling that down I'm REALLY loving the MGC/GT I've been driving for a year and a half now. So my dream car is the one I'm driving right now.
