On future vehicles to go in one garage.
On Saturday DC3 LS, really really wants an El Camino made a post about classic car garage under $120,000 USD. The rules were one America car, one Japanese, and the last European. I knew the American one had to be a 1st gen Firebird. Specifically a 1967 Pontiac Firebird 400 HO with a 4 speed, factory a/c, and in Verdoro Green.
Second would be a 1991 Land Rover Defender 110 pickup all overlanded out.Yes I would want it with the 3.5L V8 and LT85 5 speed until I could do a LBZ Duramax swap.
Last but not least would be a 1975 Mitsubishi Colt Galant GTO with the 5 speed and 4G52 I4
Well after commenting this garage I could not get it out of my head because at the end of the day I think this would be a perfect garage for me. I have my big V8 muscle car to blast down the drag strip and hang out with all my Pontiac buddies. Then I have a nice little canyon carver and import show car. Last but not least I have a truck that could tow the other two from hell and back and across the Sahara if need be.
“But CaptDale,” You say, “What about that $120k?”
Well you know that isn’t a lot of money really for 3 classics. The Firebirds are $30-40k in really clean spec, a Defender 110 $50k, and Colt Galant GTO $15k. All together that would be roughly $105,ooo with an additional $15,000 that could be used for registration, shipping, and any light work needed. Seriously if I were to have $120k to spend this is a very reasonable garage to have. And this would also be a garage I would be happy with for the rest of my life.
I guess it just suprised me how well that worked out. Now I want these... Come on Lotto!
