Default How much are you willing to spend on a car

If money was suddenly not an issue for you, would you go out and buy that super duper car? Would you spend what some people take two or three years to earn on a car? Or would you stay with something more basic and affordable? Or would it be a mix of in between?

I personally can not ever see myself splurging that much on a car. I wouldn't mind a nice new Toyota Tacoma, but I do not think I could stomach dropping more than 40k on any car. There is some amazing and beautiful cars out there but the cost makes me seriously shudder.

What are your guys thoughts on the matter? Do some of you have super duper special cars and do you feel it is worth that bigger price?

I don`t care about cars. The one I have now is still my first and I intend to make it suffer a slow painful death before I replace it.

Money not an issue?

I would immediately buy a Dodge Viper GTS-R. I've always wanted one, so it would be my dream car.

Ferrari... nuf said.

I have loved Ferrari's lines and design since I was a wee lad who just started to appreciate automobiles. To me a beautiful car, such as a Ferrari or Bugatti, is a form of art. It evokes emotion by looking at it. Someday I hope to be the one looking from the inside out...

To hell with your automobiles and electrickery.

Bicycles are were the real fun is.

Everyone should use bikes, and if you require long distance travel or its wet use the bus or train.

Using a bike would mean less congestion, less dependence on oil, less pollution, a much fitter and healthy population and would save the nation money.

Plus, keeping your body toned and trim (especially you legs) helps with the ladies.

That's a win+win+win right there.

Although, I do think that the Germans make the best cars, and have been quietly impressed by Audi for the last several years.

But I get a huge amount of delight from American muscle cars for some reason.
