There are times when I’m glad I’m not a Rich Bastard (a.k.a. Powerball winner) because I just know that after I’d bought a decent house, traveled a bit, bought a few guns (stop laughing) and settled down, I would undoubtedly get drawn into the world of car auctions.
So here’s this weekend’s “just suppose” game, assuming that your circumstances are as above.
You have several (hundreds of?) thousands of dollars that are burning a hole in yer wallet, and one day you come across this fiendish event.
Wait awhile to browse this page, while I outline what we’re going to be talking about today.
One of the things I like about events of this nature is the variety of stuff to be auctioned, because it takes away the usual “Which Ferrari would I pick?” question. Here, you could indulge your taste not just for the exotic, but for the historic, eclectic, or even weird, e.g.:
And so, Gentle Readers, the only question to be asked is this:
In order of preference, which five cars or motorcycles would you bid on?
Remember, money is no object — we’re talking about scratching a lifelong itch, or checking off an item on Ye Olde Bucquette Lyste. So go ahead and make your selections, and assume that all are in roadworthy condition and could be driven home, if need be. You could decide on five supercars; one supercar, two vintage and a weird car; three saloon cars, a supercar and a one-of-a-kind car; or a campervan, two sports cars and two motorcycles — whatever, the five choices are all yours.
(Note: if you click on a car to read about it, you have to use the “Back” ( <– ) button to return to the main page.)
Starting on Monday, I’ll be revealing my five choices one at a time, one per day, with reasons.
