What Would You Do If...

If You Won A Million Dollars What Would You Do?

First thing I would do is jump in the GMC take it to the local 4x4 shop. New 6.2 Litre Motor...tear out my turbo and all that stuff. Have it done Right with a Banks Turbo Kit. Dual Straight Pipes. 2 inch spring lift, 1 inch body lift, 33 inch TSL Radials. Rebuild my NP208, New JET 700 tranny, Dana 60, 14FF, Detroit in 14FF geared either 3.73 or 4.10. The truck would be pretty much bullet proof. Oh and get my dual tanks working. And a Nice Rollbar for my Off-Road Lights. I Figure 10,000 to 15000 for that stuff...just a rough estimate.

Then buy a new Transmission for Andrews Ford F-150, and some 33s for his Ford, no lift(hes a sheetmetal cutting kind of guy. then 32s or 33s for his 99 Dodge RamFigure $5000 for that.

Then Go to Rasmussen Ford buy Justin this 86 Dodge 3/4 ton ram, with 32 inch mudders on it, and dual exhaust for him.(he has no vehicle at all...) $3000 for that

Give Jake $5000 to get his 84 Wagoneer all fixed up.

Go find Jeff a truck(justins twin with nothin to drive either) figure $4000 for truck and tires.

Then go find me a Clean 91 K5 for College. Put a few mods in it, 32 A/T tires, no lift, a 350. Figure $7-8000 if i can find a rust free one.

thats $40,000. so i have 960,000 left...ill drop all that into CDs or something, to make interest on it.

Oh and Id get soem SFA Forum decals made up for everyone in there [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] that would prolly get me a 5 star rating...lol

But other then that, if you did win a million bones could you find it in your heart to give me 4-5g's? Then I could get my pile road worthy [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img].</font color>

Re: What Would You Do If...

I'd build up two, no four really nice Samurais. There goes about 65000 (Im talking really nice Samurais, lol)
Buy land, build a huge shop and a small house.
Buy my brother some Mustang parts.
Maybe pay off my dads new truck, buy my mom a 99ish 4Runner (new ones are kinda ugly)

Then I'd go wheelin, hit Moab, the Rubicon, Zukimelt, any and every other Suzuki offroad event.

Re: What Would You Do If...

Being that I work in the financial markets........

I would put my $750,000 into tax-free muni bonds. That would get me about $40,000 tax free every year. And not eat into the principal.

I would next take the $250,000 and buy my toys......quads, harleys, trucks, and a nice piece of land with nothing on it but dirt. That way I could invite all to come for the annual mud bash. Of course it would include food and beverages for all who come and a few prizes for the winners of the events I choose.


.....damn I gotta work harder. [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

Re: What Would You Do If...

I'd pay on my bills as far as it would go. No just kidding.
1st thing would be a brand new Grand Cherokee from American Expedition Vehicles. Then 44's front and back on my XJ with air lockers, lower transfer case gears, new tires, new front and rear bumpers, plus lots of other smaller stuff.
