Pretty straight forward and simple. If you could have ANY 5 cars in your garage, what would they be?

For me it would be this:

Nice choices so far.

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:

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)

@Lurchs question, extremely valid point, I've seen some wicked amazing daily driven car used for track use, but all these people wanting full blown race cars with no way to get them there is kinda funny. And damn that Deville is wicked.

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

HERE COMES ILLOUSIONS sh*tTY AMERICAN CAR LIST!
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.
user posted image

Second, a 76ish Cadillac Seville that would fall under the same description as the St. Regis.
user posted image

Third car would be a ~1976 Ford Country Squire. It would be a daily driver.
user posted image

Fourth would be a 1977-78 Ford Ranchero, that I'd use to haul parts and stuff around.
user posted image

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.
user posted image

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.

Um...no.

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. tounge.gif

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?

Personally, this topic has had me torn for the last few days. I think I may want this:

1. Alfa Romeo GTV6 (Modded tastefully and making 300HP or so)
user posted image

2. BMW 7 Series Wagon (w/ M5 I6 and manual trans)

3. Dodge 3500 Ram w/ 22.5 Alcoas

4. Bowler Wildcat

5. E46 BMW M3 GTR

Correct me if I'm wrong, but did he not just post 5 cars, all of which are exactly the same car underneath?
