Yes, it'd become a more dedicated autox car and I've thought about making it more of a GT car after that phase is over, throw some sound deadening into it, supercharge it and keep it street legal, find a nice compromise suspension setup and it'd be the 'weekend' car that I wouldn't mind driving everyday or to the track or to whatever other event. I'd buy other cars, there are much better cars to racecar imho, much better DDs and with tens of millions in the bank having space and time for options is possible, the big thing going for the 86 now is that it's cheap and new, once price becomes a non-factor it's time to party. I'm sentimental so I don't think I'd sell it, but I wouldn't rule it out.

If I won $100 million dollars I would sell every last thing I own and just rent what I want when I want and return it as soon as I am bored of it. I'm not even sure what country my mailing address would be in..

I'd keep the FRS because it's just a fun car to drive when I'm in a certain frame of mind. I'd probably trade up on my other vehicles.

I'd also probably keep working part time because reasons.

100% would keep it. My ultimate "dream build" is an LFA V10-swapped TRD 86. I'd use my limitless funds to fund that unlikely build. Because when you're stupid rich, you don't care about taking the V10 out of a doner LFA. I'll just do what that one drifter guy in Japan did and drop a NASCAR TRD V8 into the LFA and drop the LFA engine into an 86.

Keep. Would be driving it every now and then plus it would be a reminder to be humble of my origins.

I want to say I'd go bonkers and mod the crap out of the car. But the reality is, I'd probably mod the crap out of it, then get bored or not want to deal with the headache. Then I'd trade in for a more expensive similar car like the Lotus Elise.

I would keep mine, and buy a second for rallycross.

I would also have a Chevy SS, Raptor, FJ62, and a McLearn Senna (assuming it's 6'5" friendly )

I meant you don't have choose one car, haha. Although I like the idea of owning nothing if I had that much money and just renting what I want when I need it and returning it when I'm done.
