Yes, you have the car before the $100 mil. If I had the $100mil first, I doubt I would own a twin.

Absolutely I would, that's what it means to be an enthusiast. Yes, I'm extremely critical of the twins when people ask, but that's because I know my love for these cars isn't logical so I want to temper other peoples expectations.

It also helps that I think these are one of the best looking cars on the planet when done right:

Bolting park benches to the back ought to be a crime. Where's everyone going to sit now?

That's not a bench for bums, it's for beers

I would upgrade my garage first, synergy v8 swap next, and a trailer truck for my frs: lots of track days.

That is a good question, and my answer would be absolutely. My 86 is one of the most fun cars to drive out of everything I have owned or driven.

I have owned a few expensive cars and they aren't as much fun in my opinion as you are always worried about where you park, people driving around you, potholes, the highway sandblasting my front bumpers etc. Even if I won the lottery, I would still worry.

I would keep my 86 as my track car, buy another one to put a Cayman S drivetrain in, PDK and all...wouldn't care how much it costs, I really just love the Cayman Motor and PDK Transmission.

Then probably buy a Focus RS, Veloster N, Civic Type R, VW R, a Nismo GTR, and probably one of the new C8 Grand Sports. Then probably tour the world driving on every track out there with all my friends and my Finnish Rally Driving Girlfriend.

I've thought about this before. I would keep my BRZ and get everything mod I have been wanting for it, and make it perfect.

Then I assume I'd buy a house with a big garage and just garage it and move onto other vehicles.

If you're like most others, you'll end up removing all those parts and selling them in the classifieds lol

If I had Jay Leno's money, I'd have Jay Leno's garage.

This is what would happen with most of the "I would still keep it since I love is so much" crowd.
A couple of years in and you would stumble over the poor old thing all covered in dust and say "Oh ya, I forgot I had that one".

Heck yes. I think I'd buy more of them. One would get FIA prepped because I had all the money to do it, and one would get a complete cosmetic build, one would be my trash car that I took to the mall and didn't worry about, and then one each for my two sons, because why not?

I really like the little beasties.

Of course, first, I would send my wagon out for a full and complete rebuild. But then, I might not have any money left. Stupid Volkswagens....

I'd probably turn it into a track rat due to the cheaper consumables, but I wouldn't continue to keep it as the weekend toy. GT3 touring for the weekends and a comfy AMG E 63 as a daily driver. How sweet would that be?
