What's in your dream garage?

Inspired by the "you know you drive an XJ" thread: what vehicles are in your "dream garage?"

How's this for a mixed bag:

- FSJ Wagoneer, late 80s to end of production, every cush option (leather, woodgrain) you can throw at it. Not primarily a trail rig.
- Another XJ 4.0/AX15 with a mild lift and lotsa goodies (nothing BUT a trail rig)
- International Scout or Travelall with the 345
- International Scout Nissan turbo-diesel (I have no idea why, other than its not very common and kinda cool)
- Gladiator pickup
- A 40s to early 60s Dodge PowerWagon (with the original flathead six with some mild period-correct hot rod goodies like an Offenhauser head).

And for the non 4x4 stuff:
- 68 Plymouth Roadrunner or Dodge SuperBee, 383 and A-833 4-speed
- 67 Plymouth GTX, 426 Hemi/Torqueflite
- 1971Buick GSX 455 w/ Stage II heads
- 1987 Buick GNX
- 1968 Ford Torino 428
- Jensen Interceptor 440
- 57 Chrysler 300c
- '69 Camaro LT1 (the original LT1 5-liter, not the 90s version) and Muncie 4-speed

I daydream about this quite frequently for when I win the lotto. :P

I'd have a pole barn full of great old musclecars, especially 442s, but my most recent "wants" are:

'06 TVR Sagaris
'08.5 Challenger (with the 6.1)

And then since I'd actually *have* a garage I'd spend the $20k or so to strip my XJ, have it completely de-rustified, POR-15 the entire frame, and repainted.

Semi-realistic dreams:
Ford F250 Diesel Crew Cab for hauling the travel trailer
My XJ with 3-4" of lift and 31" tires for trail riding/my DD
VW Passat TDI Wagon for the wife's DD

Not-so-realistic dreams:
TJ running 35's and full ARB lockers (lots of other goodies) for trail riding
Ford F350 Crew Cab Diesel Duallie for hauling the TJ and other toys
Fullsize motor home
64.5 Ford Mustang, fully restored
92 Ford Mustang LX, modded to drive fast in straight lines and the curves
My XJ for DD duties
Chevy Tahoe for the wife's DD

'68 Charger with a 500ci stroker, Keisler TKO-600 5spd OD trans, locked Dana 60 with 4.30 gears, and a nice suspension made to turn corners as well as run a sub 11sec ET.

I'd also LOVE a new Challenger SRT8 with a 5spd. Even though I'm a diehard Mopar guy, I'd also love one of the new Bullitt Mustangs.

What he said. ;-)

I wouldn't throw a GT-40 out of the garage, either.
