    If I won the big lotto I would let my chauffeur choose the car, is going to be his job, not mine...

    But something like this could be fine

    If I was buying new I think I'd like this:
    porsche-panamera.png
    Porsche Panamera.

    If I was looking for something used and restored I'd go with:
    1974 KarmannGhia.jpg
    a 1974 Karmann Ghia or

    1970 p1800es.jpg
    a 1970 Volvo P1800 ES.

    Nostalgia, you know?

    Some what long list; some are cars I couldn't afford to keep properly in my youth, others I just never crossed paths w/ an affordable beater.

    BMW 2002tii I oddly like the 74 w/ the square tail lights, but any will do. ( Had a NA '74..)
    SAAB 99 Turbo (3 door) ( had a 88 900T..)
    Volvo 250 Turbo Wagon ( missed one of these SH-SH for $2500 from a dealer..)
    1967 Buick Sport Wagon; maybe build it up to GS standard.. ( went to Cape Cod in a "demonstrator" BITD..first car I was ever in w/ A/C, nice ride)
    1969 4x4 GMC pickup; I would build a brush unit based around a Godiva portable pump into this.. I'm pretty sure your homeowners goes down when you answer "where is the nearest fire house?" w/ "in my drive way" ( local VFD has one bought new.. still in service!)

    '67-'69 Chev or GMC 4x4 pickup small block V8. Automatic transmission - easier on the left knee (I'm 70 this month, lol) Don't know if they came in 4x4 though. But I could modify it. No electronics. I could fix anything myself.

    Excellent choice! We had a 1956 Pontiac four door in the late fifties to early sixties.
