If you could have 5 cars in your garage
Posted 01 April 2011 - 04:59 PM
For me it would be this:
BMW M5 E34
Mercedes-Benz S-Class W221
Audi A8 D4
Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06
Posted 01 April 2011 - 05:38 PM
Audi RS6 (preferably MTM tweaked) for load lugging
Porsche 997 GT3 RS for weekend fun
Mk5 R32 for daily driver duties
E36 M3 (extensively) tweaked for track work. Ideally with a race specced M60B30.

Barring actual real world use (cause God knows they'd be crap on a day to day basis), top 5 in the garage would be:
McLaren F1 GTR Longtail
Lotus Exos T125

All of those three for showing off and having fun
For daily use
Because I've always wanted one

(hypothetically of course)
Posted 02 April 2011 - 07:33 AM
Ok my top 5 are:
1.Nissan S30Z (280z), no swap in it, just the L28, tuned of course
2.E36 M3 Tuned but still within daily driver limits, though I proboly would save my next one for a daily driver
3.Subaru Impreza 22B STi, 100% stock, for a daily driver
4.Ruf CTR "Yellowbird"
5.1969 427 Yenko Camaro
Mainly chose 5 with in the bounds of usability, there are load’s of others I’d love to have but yeah, that and I wanted to get one from every major car producing continent

| So for the ones that have full-on serious race cars that aren't street legal, how are you getting them to the track? |
(hypothetically of course)
RS6 + Towbar + Trailer.

First of, a Dodge St. Regis. It would be a weekend cruiser that's always garaged under a car cover and it would be washed at least once a week.
Second, a 76ish Cadillac Seville that would fall under the same description as the St. Regis.
Third car would be a ~1976 Ford Country Squire. It would be a daily driver.
Fourth would be a 1977-78 Ford Ranchero, that I'd use to haul parts and stuff around.
And fifth would be a 1965 Buick Electra. Would look pretty much like this one, only it would have a 6.2 LS3 and matching transmission hooked up to the original column shifter for that ultra-sleeper feeling. Would be used for dragracing and such.
And before you ask, no I would not want a Ferrari or an M5. They just don't fascinate at all, unlike old detroit steel.

RS6 + Towbar + Trailer.
|Maximum Towing - Not recommended|
RS6+tow bar+trailer = crumpled unibody and and possibly bottomed out suspension (unless you have coilovers with spring rates so high they flat out do no move at all). Tires over there max load limit could be a problem too.
Taking into account that your race E36 probably weighs 2500 or more and that a basic car hauler will most likely weight at least 1500, there's 4000 lbs. or more or less the max for your basic 1/4 ton pickup. Not to knock Audi, but was anything in it designed to handle a 9000 lbs gross?
Leave the tow business for the trucks....or at least a slightly heavier duty Taureg/Cayanne/Q7 or maybe a Hilux. Something with a frame would be preferable.
Hypothetically and all.

|Why not just pick an old Lancer Evo and get all the fun of the Laser/Talon/Eclipse (I hope you mean to get the AWD versions) plus two more doors and a slightly more functional back seat?|
Correct me if I'm wrong, but did he not just post 5 cars, all of which are exactly the same car underneath?
