Default If you had a ten-car garage

I was just musing - what cars would I own if cost were no object (one way or the other) and I had a ten-space garage. I decided these would be mine:
Porsche Carrera S - Tiptronic – hard to beat as a daily driver
My modified ’02 ZO6 Corvette – love it too much even though I hardly every drive it
2007 Aston Martin Vantage S – V12, 200+ mph,elegance andstyle, and each custom built
196X Sunbeam Tiger/Ford 260 V8 (unmodified) – a very nice, underratedlittle car
1938 Talbot Lago – gorgeous and fast pre-War elegance
1953 Buick Skylark (Supercharged/wire wheels) – big, bulbous, cool: epitome of Detroit’s garish excess
1967 Ferrari 275 GTB, long nose, six-carb version – to me, always “the” Ferrari
196X Jaguar XK150 – I like these better than the earlier XKs
196X Chevy Nova SS 375 HP fuel injected 327 – a bit different muscle car
1965 Oldsmobile 88 w. 425 4-brl V8 – my father’s Oldsmobile

What would you choose?

3 '70 Ferrari Dino
4 '70 Road Runner, 440 6/pak

Here's mine:

See if you can identify a pattern in the colors

1. 2002 ZL1 SS Camaro (Black with white stripes) - The Final Camaro, going to be a classic one day

2. 2004 Corvette Z06 (Black with Chrome Wheels) - It's the last C5, it's a Z06, and it's Black

3. July 1997 Ferrari F50 (Black) - The most beautiful Ferrari EVER, can you say V12?

4. 1969 Camaro Z/28 (Black w/ White Stripes) - No one believes Chevy's HP rating for this car

5. 1966 SS Chevelle (Black with Corvette Rallys) - The best looking Chevelle ever made

6. 1970 Hemi 'Cuda (Got to be Black) - HELLO!! 6 mpg. Sold with no warranty. DUH!

7. 2007 Corvette Z06 (Black with Chrome Wheels) - Most powerful Chevy ever, maybe that matters

Hey, it's not ten, it's just becauseI'm so humble

Default RE: If you had a ten-car garage

Well, I do have seven garage spaces and could have one more if I wanted to install another garage door. My wife is sick of all the remote garage door openers. I don't even have all these stalls full, but here's what's in the ones that are full.
1. 2002 F250 Lariet Diesel truck
2. 1998 Toyota Avalon (wife's)
3. 2003 Harley Davidson Firefighters Edition Road King
4. 1980 Corvette
5. 1930 Model A Ford Hot Rod
6. 1989 Corvette that I'm trying to sell for a friend. This car was bought new by Richard Childress Racing and driven by Teresa Earnhardt for the first year.
7. Vacant HUUUUMMM 63 1/2 Ford Fastback 427 4 speed
8. Vacant HUUUUMMM 1962 Impala 409 4 speed
Well anyway I don't need to be wishing, I need to be out driving. Harleyboy

Being a car nut, I know there is no limit to the length of anyone's list. But I figured 10 was enough to get anyone'smost interesting picks. I know I could go on and on (a '53 Coupe De Ville would be on the next ten on my list, as would a '66 Mustang Hi-Po Fastback) but you have to stop somewhere . . .
