What would be your perfect 10 car garage?

I was thinking of what mine would be, and i can't figure out 10 cars that would be perfect, but i do have a working list.

BMW E30 M3 EVO 3
Lotus Exige
McLaren F1
Porsche 1995 Carrera
Triumph TR6
Mini Cooper (Old)
Porsche GT3
BMW 2002 Turbo
Land Rover Defender
Subaru STI

I'm a noob to forums also... hopefully this thread hasn't been done too many times...

But whats wrong with the DB9? Or 760?

I have no idea why I put the 745 instead of the 760... I was thinking 7 series and 745 just popped to my mind because I got a lift in one yesterday... much more comfortable than the Merc S class.
I personally like the look of the DB7 more than the DB9... I don't give a shit about the crap gearbox... its all about looks. :wink:

Barely anything actually:

1995 - 854/855 T-5R - 2.3L inline 5 turbo, 240 SAE net hp, 221 SAE net ft./lbs. ? 4-speed automatic - Colors: Yellow/Black/Less than 10 in Green, Special wheels, seats, front/rear spoilers

1996 - 854/855 R - 2.3L inline 5 turbo, 240 SAE net hp, 221 SAE net ft./lbs. ? 4-speed automatic ? Colors: Black/Red/White, Special wheels, seats, front/rear spoilers

T5-R wheels:

R wheels:

As far as I know, the only differences were in the available colors and wheels. There could be more, but that's all I've ever known.

BMW 535d wagon for travelling long distances.
Westfield XTR2 for the track (much more serviceable than a Radical SR8 and trounces an Exige for $20k less).
Suzuki Jimny Diesel for bringing the car above to the track and for offroading.
Subaru Impreza WRX STi or Mistu Lancer Evo 8 (depends on the one I prefer) for rally tracks.
My current car 'cause I love it.
Toyota Prius for urban commuting/daily duties/shopping.
Golf 1 GTI for its historical credentials.
Dauer 962 for its ultimate concept.
Secma Funtech because it should be great fun :D
