    Hitler would be proud ;)

    But seriously, at least that's the good years for the VW Beetles.

    I'd only take 1967 Beetles. First year of the 12 volt electrical, and last year of the old style lights and euro bumpers. They also increased the engine from the 1300 to the 1500, so it was more powerful. IMO, the best year altogether.

    My ideal garage would probably include:
    1: BMW Z4 Coupe 6 Speed (The older style)
    2: Honda Civic SI Mugen Edition (As a normal everyday car)
    3: Audi S4
    4: Porsche 911 S
    5: Porsche Cayenne Twin-Turbo (Yes, I think it actually is a good looking car)
    6:Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Coupe
    7:Aston Martin Cygnet (Just because I ran out of options)
    8:A John Cooper works Mini Cooper S with a Mini D supercharged motor
    9:Honda s2000
    10: I'll take a 1967 VW Beetle. Mint condition of course. ;)

    I like the Alfa Romeo Spider on your list, but I'm surprised that so far, no-one has mentioned one of my all time favourites, namely the iconic Citroen DS; that car simply oozed class, Gallic elegance and style.

    I never liked the Citroen DS, but I would still buy one if I had room.

    I can't image I'd actually need 10 cars. I think I could make do with:

    1) Lotus Elise. I'd put the exact model but I'd want a heavily modified one
    2) Landrover Defender 110. Just in case I need something with off-road capabilities
    3) Citroën C6. We always had Citroëns when I was a kid so I'd have one as a "normal"/airport run car
    4) Smart Car (or when it's available a Murray T25). For town use.

    Anything else would be ultra rare and hardly ever driven:

    5) McLaren F1. The best supercar ever made
    6) Ferrari 250 GTO. Possibly the best looking car ever made
    7) Porsche 911 (993 GT2). I think you have to have a 911 in there somewhere
    8) Pagani Zonda. As much to look at as to drive!
    9) Mini Cooper. A real one. Not a BMW one. A real rule breaking car
    10) Citroën DS. Just an amazing thing

    With all these gas guzzlers, no one has yet mentioned a tanker or two full of Premium. ;)

    1. Tesla S
    2. Nissan Altima Hybrid
    3. F-150 - Sometimes you need a truck
    4. 2012 Audi A8 - Love the technology
    5. Audi R8
    6. Bugatti Veyron
    7. Lotus Elise
    8. BMW 7HS - Sometimes you want to ensure you get where you're going.
    9. MaxxPro Plus - Sometimes you really need to ensure you get where you're going.

    I think that is enough for me.

    The AC Cobra 427 hemi choice makes me chuckle.

    I remember reading in Road & Track at the time, that, due to the power to weight ratio, there were only a handful of drivers in the States at the time, that could handle one, without killing themselves.

    There is a mint 289 AC Cobra in my area, and it is tres sweet. That would do me, thanks.

    Honda Aero 125 Scooter. How could anyone possibly want any more than this?

    I think my perfect 10 car garage would be 9 bays empty, and have a lift. :D
