Super Bowl Bonus Dream Garage

11 posts in this topic

So I am shamelessly copying idea of Doug DeMuro from the Autotrader:

What cars would you buy with the Super Bowl bonus?

Winning team supposedly gets $107k, and the loosing team $53k.

So:

1. What car/cars would you buy with $107k?

2. How would you spend $53k?

Old or new, anything goes.

Anything goes.. That will make this tough. I suspect an 03-04 Cobra will be one but I'll have to think about how to place the remaining 84k.

Is this two separate ones? 107 and 53? or is it 107k for cars and 53k for anything(could be more cars)?

Okay, cool. Thanks for the clarification.

I might as well ask something else.. 4 wheels road-worthy vehicles only? No motorcycles/ATVs?

I always seem to have quesitons with these, lol.

35k 2016 F150 Lariat, 4X4, SCrew Cab, 25k miles, 5.0 V8

Autotrader 2016 F150 Lariat

33k C6 Z06, 6spd, they seem to be in the 40-50k mile range at this price.

Autotrader 2006 C6 Z06

30k Boss 302, 6spd, This is the only color combination that I genuinely like.

Autotrader 2013 Boss 302

$9,000 remaining...

9k mk6 GTI, DSG trans, most likely something will break shortly because it's so cheap and looks too good to be true

Autotrader mk6 GTI

--------------------------------------------------

I'm really not all that confident in this list as I feel like I should be getting more car for 107k.. I may have to come back to this.

I hate to add to the questions, but I'm assuming these are our only cars? Like, we have 0 vehicles before spending the cash?

No, lets keep it "real", That's your bonus, so it is an addition to what you have. 

Just go wild :)

Shooooot in addition!  Well that F150 will likely be coming off of that list.

Okay because I'm working on a new house situation I know I'll likely need a bed on a large number of occasions so asking to borrow my dad's Tacoma is annoying and kind of rude.. so I'll still want a truck and of the older generations I'm way more of a Chevy truck fan than the rounded F150 body style so I'll get this little work-like truck out of the way. Oh, it'll also serve as the..."it's $h!ty snowy outside so keep all of the other girls tucked away in the garage" vehicle.

11k  2004 Silverado, 4x4, extended cab, 5.3 V8. 59,000 miles. (Blue Silverado)

or 12k Silverado 4x$, extended cab, 5.3 V8, 64,000 miles but Z71. (Red Silverado)

48k Aston Vantage V8, 6spd(!), 20k miles (V8 Vantage)

20k 2004 Cobra, 57,500 miles (2004 Cobra)

21k C5 Z06 6spd, 33k miles (C5 Z06)

Shucks.. left with 7k.. Not much out there for $7,000.

7k 2006 Miata 6spd, Bunch of miles..94k (2006 Miata)

With 103K and my current cars-

I'd trade my wife's Rav4 in on a new Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and pay if off- that uses 50K.

So I now have 53K left. I'd take 3K of that and buy wheels for my GTI, and do Eurodyne tune.

Down to 50K. I'd take 8K of that and buy a new Ducati Scrambler Icon.

With the remainder, I'd buy the nicest, lowest mile 997 C2S 6MT Coupe I could find.

So-

53K, Idk. Prolly do the same thing with the Grand Cherokee, and trade my GTI in on a new R.

Will get slightly used Mustang GT premium (30k) and will upgrade my wife's ride to whatever newest we can get for the remaining money and her car as a trade in.
