500,000 for SIX cars/vehicles

Ok imagine, you have just won the lottery and agreed a budget for YOU of 500,000 for SIX cars/vehicles.

Which ones will you buy ?

You can only buy SIX - and do not have to spend it all

Re: 500,000 for SIX cars/vehicles

I'd buy the oldest roadworthy rust bucket I could get my hands on. Put on a beer label for road tax, fit false number plates and travel the UK parking in every car park I could find and dent any and every car next to me... revenge would be sweet.

When caught, tell the beak to get stuffed. Go to jail, get my own room with CH, get served three meals a day, laundry all done and free tv, gym... now that's what I call justice.

As for the initial dosh... gave it to a good cause.

PS - Did I miss any other freebies out???

Re: 500,000 for SIX cars/vehicles

Medium sized runaround eg Golf, Audi A3
Landrover Discovery to go to Horse Shows and do Geology in.
Small horsebox with living accomodation
Medium sized motor home for trips away.

Think I could easily spend half a million on them, and any spare goes on extras like curry hooks
