An interesting game!

Home  \  Off Topic  \  An interesting game!

Just a Hypothetical for you guys.

Lets say some eccentric billionare walked up to you and said he would pay for a house for you anywhere in the world, and one car to park in the driveway.

Where would you live and what car/bike/moped would you choose?

Me?
The city would be Florence, Italy:

And the Car, a 1986 Ford RS200 Evo:

the house would be in Los Angeles, California, and the car would be a r34 skyline from exvitermini.com

I would probably have to say San Deigo CA. And A right hand driver 1997 Acura Integra GSR.

posted by  DSMDriver

The city would be probably like LA or somewhere in Italy (don't really know which city is nicer there :wink2: ) and the car would be Ferrari 360 spyder

posted by  RusMan

WOW zalight you nailed it but i probably wouldn't live in italy and your choice of cars :thumbs: i respect you dude... ALOT.

posted by  BanffAutoSpa_ap

the house would be in the foothills around Venice, Italy and my car?

Ferrari 575M Maranello...sexiest car on the planet. :hi:

posted by  SuperJew

I agree...very nice choice Zalight

Ok...my choices...

One of these three cities:

Kyoto, Japan

http://www.its.caltech.edu/~claudiu/pictures/japan2002/kyoto-tower.jpg

Ft. Lauderdale (my old hometown area)

http://www.smt.org/upload_images/smt/ft%20lauderdale.jpg

Or Anaheim, CA

http://www.mit.edu/~vasilyev/Other_ph/DAC03/anaheim.jpg


Car would be a 0 miles Ferrari F40

Good luck with that one! :laughing:

Hey we said...eccentric billionaire...I guess I should have said genie...I am sure there's one around which has less than 100 miles...hell I'll take less than 10k miles...

But I want as near to perfection as possible...

posted by  NISSANSPDR

hmm....where to live. NOT OHIO!!!!! :banghead:

I have always loved Florida by Clearwater. Odds are i would pick their and a nice oversized place to live in. Really wouldnt move to another country. Not my style. I would visit, but not live.

the car is harder though. One car? any choice! do you realize how hard that would be! Especially if you could test them all out first. OMG i would never deiced! Maybe a Kia? (j/k :mrgreen: )

Whaaaaat, california? are you gay? california/californians suck! it's a fact look it up.

posted by  shev

So very opinionated! Could you explain why you find californians/california suck.

posted by  Zalight

haha, just judging from the ones i've met, rich kids that moved here and left after a cold winter, and one i beat up after trying to act, as he referred to himself as "gangsta".

other then that absolutely no reason.

posted by  shev

I'd have to say...Memphis Tennessee or...Fairfeild Glade Tennessee (I have a timeshare in Fairfeild Glade and I LOVE it down there)

The car...93-97 Chevy Camaro SS or 1990 Chevy Beretta GTZ....what can I say. I'm a Chevy man. Camaros and Beretras being my 2 favorite cars...

posted by  Satty101

An island in the south pacific, pref. one that is about 100 miles long and like 5 wide :mrgreen: The car..... damn that is tough.... 1968 GTO Convert.

posted by  Voda48

California...this is why...I went to visit family out in Anaheim and it's a nice place to live...not as gangsta as LA...up and coming...Anaheim is like an 1 hr or so from the beach and 2 hrs or so from Big Bear so the water and snow are not far for both types of fun...lots of tuners are out in California so I'd be close to all the import action and me and my girlfriend love the sun...

posted by  NISSANSPDR

Any place without traffic lights,stop signs and interstate/4 lane highways. Golf cart would be nice. I have really gone down hill. :laughing: Kiddin. I would love to have my 67 goat back.

posted by  lectroid

applauds for you guys....too bad we can't have two cars, eh? my second choice would have been a 69 GTO Judge Hardtop. mmmm :drool:

posted by  SuperJew

If I could live in one place, it would probably be either in the hills of Los Angeles, Palm Beach, Florida, or in the Rocky Mountains...
http://www.encounters.jp/mike/images/canada/1BC/rockies.jpg
One car? That's a hard one. Probably a G35 with a six speed like the one in my sig, or an '05 Cadillac STS.

posted by  moostang104314

hmmm...i'd wait for the STS-V if i were you....440 HP and 430 lb-ft. :drool:

and damn good looks to go with it.

posted by  SuperJew

I don't know, I like the conservative looks of the non-V model, but 440 horsepower does sound pretty fun.

posted by  moostang104314

It wouldn't be the place so much as the atmosphere associated with it. I'd live in Beverly Hills or sumthin really high class but hot. And my house would be soooo nice. I'd have to do a coin toss for the Lexus LF-A, or LF-C Concepts.

posted by  VMJYogi

Im not sure I've heard of these. Links? Pics?

posted by  Zalight

They are very nice. The LF-A pushes 200mph with a 500hp engine. And has rearview and side cameras instead of mirrors. I'll add some pics for you really quick. And the LF-C is a luxury four door with a covertible hardtop. Hold up for the pics.


The LF-C

This thread needs a bump...........


I've changed my mind. The car would be a ferrari f2005
http://www.theprancinghorse.co.uk/news/newspics/todt_f2004launch.jpg

And the place would be some random isolated place with roads like these;

posted by  Godlaus

Still the same choice of city for me, but I might change the car to a Datsun 510 with a 20b and a turbo the size of shamu.
http://www.gordon-glasgow.org/Images/510-2-1.jpg

No, on second thought, Id stick with the RS200

posted by  Zalight

City would be seculed but close to the action. Car would have to be something unique like a RHD 20b starlet.

posted by  rcefstsfecr

I would live in

City: Cambridge (uk) close enough to London, far enough to drive

Car: Ford GT40 or Mclaren F1 ,have to drive both then decide

posted by  hammerthief

I would get a house in sydney, australia http://rasputin.physics.uiuc.edu/~forest/photogallery/sydney.jpg
............. and the car would be a 1996 Nissan Skyline R33 GTS TURBO.

There are 48 of the most beautiful images of rome for you!

posted by  Zalight

Thanx dude, those were awesome. I must admit, I have never actually been there but pics I see are beautiful nad my good friend of mine studied abroad there and loved it. Sounds awesome. I guess you have been there?

posted by  boothe

Yea, I love to travel. I've been to rome, florence, venice, the alps, salsburg, vienna, paris and london. I want to go back to Europe this summer but I don't no wether to save my money for a trip or a new car...

posted by  Zalight

Thats awesome. Is that from multiple trips or just one long one? Buddies and I threw around the idea of the 2 month European vacation. Never took off though. Where would you go this time?

posted by  boothe

Yeah, it was one long trip.

If I went back I would go to a lot of the same places, except I would also swing by Amstersam, Berlin and Madrid

posted by  Zalight

I am definately going to Ibiza, Spain in the next 3 years. Imma pick up VD!!!!!

posted by  VMJYogi

Spain sounds awesome. I wanted to travel there and go to Barcelona. Heard a lot of good things about it. Amsterdam would be pretty cool too. Red Light District??? :thumbs:

posted by  boothe

Thats just scary. I wouldn't go to the Red Light District of the one place in the world where everything is legal. Thats like the diseases would have their own kick it spots there. They'd rent people out like apartment buildings. Infest a taller guy for a better scenic view. hehe.

posted by  VMJYogi

yea, I definitly want to go to Ibiza. That would be amazing.

posted by  Zalight

By this post I can't tell if you wanted to go by the end? [:)]

What is the story with Ibizia over Barcelona and Madrid? I have not heard that place mentioned before.

posted by  boothe

Its an Island off spain known for its beautiful women, constant parties, and never ending raves.

This is Ibiza:

Zalight - Hahah. I see it so clearly now. :thumbs:

Wish I had the bucks to do something like that. Cost a good deal I am sure, right?

posted by  boothe

Well, lets just say its the hot spot for people like Tara Reid, the hilton sisters, and people of that sort. So if your like them, you can afford it!

posted by  Zalight

Go down to the south island of NZ (christchurch most likely) and get me a skyline r32 gt-r, and do whatever i can to it

posted by  ahoo

I am not. You ever seen that pic of tara reid at an award show and her blouse falls open?
