I'd do something a little different..............

http://moviemike.com/torino/images/h...moke_two_c.jpg

A short deck mechanical roller 380 Windsor, T56, and some wicked paint.

Light powerful engine would help handling, muscle car looks, and best part, not many people have them. :evil3:

WOW. There's so much to choose from with 100k. I've compacted my list down to the following :P

I'd have an FG XR6T in 'Sensation' & a 2009 Ford Ranger WildTrak in 'Winning Blue'
Or FG G6E-T in 'Sensation' & Skoda Scout TDi 4x4 wagon (in Blue of course)

An Audi Q7 3.0 V6 TDi or Volkswagen Touareg 3.0 V6 TDi

Or if I couldn't get those.. I'd go for an SY Territory Turbo Ghia (in Sensation of course!) & the rest of the money could go to the cost of putting petrol in it for the next year.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. :

Or if anyone doesn't want their Shockwave Blue BA/BF falcon anymore, I'll have it! ;) I want a blue car sooo much.

I'll stop rambling on now!

Yep but that is when I finally come home. Been here for 5.5 years now so it will be a little while yet before I have to pay that extra stuuf to get it into Oz. So I didn't count the costs to get it home in my budget as it will be used here for a few years first so it still comes in under the $100k limit for this thred hey hey hey.

Personally I have a GT for weekend cruises, a Boxster S for a commuter, and am either picking up a supercharged elise or an exige later this year. I would like an Elfin MS8 instead of the lotus but it's just not right for me unfortunately. Its in you price range though if you want only one car. You could also look at a good second hand 911 or a new Audi TT for that money. Girlfriend has the Audi and it's a great drive.

Nice garage, I would get a shifter kart over the Lotus though as they are about as practical :-) Have you tried getting in and out of one....?

Lotus isn't everyones cup of tea. This will be a part time track car and only used for the occassional flick around the hills. Looks like fun to me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpZefXD-U9s

Still would like that MS8 though. The below car is up for sale for $115,000. I might go for a wander over to the Elfin factory tomorrow as they're located just behind my house. Just for a look.

I imagine it would excel towing the work trailer with the 6.2-liter V-8.

Honestly, that's what I would buy! Best car Ford has done in a long time!

Lets see, based on my current toy buying rules it would have to be something that I could sell for $150,000 in 5-10 years.

I realise you might not need to save the money, but its kinda cool to have toys that make money.

I have the R32, if I could compliment it with a T3 and get that past the missus, I would be an extremely happy man!

Only took a couple of quickies after I had done a job one day, I'm not a big photo taker of cars. Here's 2 before I get yelled at for not owning a Ford. :P
