    So after the which cars you have owned thread it has got me thinking what I would own if money was no object.
    To some this would be one dream car, I’m a bit more ‘Harry’s Garage’

    So anyhow, here’s my list.
    (It’s relatively humble)

    BMW R1150GS - I currently own and like a lot.
    BMW R1250GS TE
    MK1 Fiesta XR2 (lots of great memories)
    MK1 Golf GTI 1.8 totally standard
    Honda NSX - manual pop up headlights
    Honda Civic Type R Gen 10 (new shape)
    Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio
    Alfa Romeo 4C Spider (if I fit in it)
    BMW E85 3.0SI Roadster
    BMW E86 3.0SI Coupe (matching)

    Possibly an early air cooled 911 but could manage without that.

    I actually really like the Honda Integra Type R as well.

    looking at my list there’s nothing comfortable :D maybe with the exception of the Giulia.
    So I’m going to throw in a nice old BMW E28 5 series as well.

    I would like to be able to run an RS6 Avant as my daily driver. I'd like a Caterham 7 CSR for weekend fun and a Bowler Wildcat for every now and then.
    Nothing hugely expensive in isolation, but out of my reach at present.

    I’m being greedy aren’t I?

    If I could only have 3 it would be the Alfa Giulia, Probably a Alpina Roadster S and the NSX.

    (ignoring the bikes)

    Probably an Audi RS5 or RS7 as my daily and a Mk1 Ford Escort Mexico.

    Oh and a Porsche 911 GT2 RS or GT3 RS (not fussy!)

    Not necessarily money no object (though 1-2 are out of my price range) as the barrier as much as anything is effort, availability and/or it would just sit there unused in reality which isn't really my thing:

    Nissan Skyline R33 as well as a newer GT-R (probably get one eventually just to tick it off the bucket list kind of thing).
    Aston Martin DB5 or 6 (though I'd really love a proper modern interpretation) and/or Jaguar E-Type.
    Aston Martin Vulcan (wouldn't say no to a newer DBS coupe or Vantage, etc. either)
    One of the VW Golf VR6s fully standard in proper highline spec.
    Lancia Delta Integrale
    Nissan Pathfinder with VK56

    I really love the look - but I'm not really one for an actual classic car, I'd want something modern underneath, neither could I afford the price tag on an actual DB5.

    Yes I like the Singer Porsches but eye watering price tag.

    Dream garage? Money no object?

    Lexus LFA
    Ferrari F40
    Bugatti Veyron SS
    Porsche 993 Turbo

    Those are probably my main dream cars. Everything else would just be sports cars which I’d like to try at some point in life. Nothing really outstanding.

    Honda NSX-R
    Datsun 240z MZR resto
    R34 GTR Bayside blue
    Skyline Hakosuka

    I'd pick up some more modern stuff as well but I think that would be the start to my collection.

    Edit how could I forget an F40

    Going from silly and impossible, to not so silly and possible:
    McLaren F1
    Honda NSX (with popup headlights)
    Aston Martin DBS V12 (the 10 year old one not the new yuck one)
    Honda S2000
    A late 350z (because mine was **** and I want to try a good one:D)
    A specced out automatic Mondeo or Superb estate as a daily

    Oh yes, that would be a great car to have in the garage. Love those early hot hatch type cars. Someone had an Escort XR3i at a sprint race I was at last weekend. Awesome.
