    Yes, you get what I was asking. I didn't mean your 5 favorite cars, I meant 5 cars to practically own with infinite money. It would be tough to do any chores when the only cars you have are million dollar supercars... although you could do them quickly. :)

    Tough question, but here are my choices....

    Daily Driver - 67 Ford Mustang Fastback w/the 289 HiPo engine as it's easy to fix and the parts are readily avalible. Just as easy to own as a newer Mustang or comparible Muscle car, but IMHO better looking, has some "soul" and a hell of a lot more fun to drive and look at.

    Family Car - WTF ever the wife picks, but it would have to be somewhat rugged and have room for my dogs. I would guess some type of SUV.

    365 GTS/4 - Need a convertable and WTF this fills the bill, besides if money is no object then I guess that means I could replace/repair the thing if it was damaged.

    288GTO

    Aston Martin DB4

    If the wife/family car is not included on this list, then I would be apt to replace that choice with a 275GTB.
