        I would get a good used car, maybe a year or two old. I don't need a flashy car, I'd rather keep the money and invest.

            I'd throw some paint and a supercharger on my 93 5.0 (a really nice 1 owner car, but the Fla sun is harsh)!  Then, I'd finish my tinkering with my Mustang GT convertible.  All in all, keep what I got, but tidy them up a bit! 

            Although, a nice AMG Benz or M-series BMW wouldn't be bad either...Razz

              I guess it really depends on how much the prize was.  If it was in the millions then I'd simply upgrade the vehicle I drive now to perhaps a Lexus or Mercedes.  Nothing ridiculous or over 100k.  As you may know cars are a typically a poor investment and more of a fashion or status symbol.

                I would really like one of those new retro Camaro's coming out in '09, but a S550 MB would do just nice!!!!Yes Nod

                A few years ago, billionaire Warren Buffett advised  "Investors should remember that excitement and expenses are their enemies. And if they insist on trying to time their participation in equities, they should try to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy only when others are fearful."

                      If I win, I'm definitly not going to show my fortunes.  Too much attention= Too much problems.

                        Mine is like this without the teeth.  It's an 05.  Cant get the picure in the avatar bigger without it getting distorted. I'll keep mine for now if I hit it big.

                        Looks like this is from a modern age  movie version of "Deathrace 2000"

                            Hybrid all the way, just because you are rich doesn't mean you should go blow it on a sports car or dare i say a hummer. Although a sports car does sound kind of nice. I think the real question here is would you go and import a car then pay for all the changes that need to be made just because you can!
