    I love his #1. I had a custom Monster Excursion built to haul my cars around. You can't honestly state it's part of your "garage" because it wont fit in one. lol

    This is half of my dream garage.

    I've managed to keep all my cars from my teens to my early 40's.

    Heck I still have my pristine garage queen 94' 4.0 Eddie Bauer 4x4 Hi-Top Conversion Aerostar that I bought brand new. That was my boat/car hauler camping/fishing SUV when there were no Excursions or anything else for that matter. lol

    I have a soft spot in my heart for that one, so much so it shares the spot right next to my Countach.

    I'll probably add a few more older Porches down the road, I'll just have to figure out how to convince my wife I need to go from an 16 car garage to a 20+. Took me 3 years to get her to allow me to spend the funds going from an 8 to a 16 space garage. The good thing I have plenty of land to continue if the wife allows it.

    Ah, 8 years later and my tastes haven't changed too much.

    Still need a good sedan for the day to day tasks, preferably with all-wheel drive for winter. Nowadays I'd go for the new E63 AMG-S.

    Of course I still need a 911, but now that I have more driving experience under my belt and I better know what I'm after in a sportscar, I'd ditch the AWD and turbos and go for a late model 997 Carrera GTS.

    Still want an open top Ferrari, so the 458 Spider is the choice for that.

    The Enzo has been replaced with the F40 in my mind as the ultimate Ferrari supercar, so I'll be needing one of those.

    GT duties go to the new Jag F-Type R Coupe.
