So, your two car garage / man cave has just been completed,
and you can't wait to put stuff in it.
Wife informs you, you have $50,000 spend it on anything you want
for your brand new garage :oops: Ok so now what?

Would you up trade your car to different, badder?
Add to the corral and if so what? tow is bette rthan one lol.
Would you start a build project?

Its a strange year, so have a little fun,
what would you do?

My great uncle, Harry England, who was a successful fox farmer in Western PEI sold his 38 MacLaughlan Buick to Newton MacKay. MacKay opened the Car Life Museum. MacKay 's son, Kevin took over operating the museum from his mother. Kevin's wife now...or did run the museum which didn't open this year.

I'd get the Buick back in the family and restore. My dad reached it as one of the early cars in the area back in the day. Block is split, but still think it would be a great project.

I already have the 2 door garage so first thought when reading the title was not adding to corral because not enough room.

Solution was sell the 2015 and my flat deck car trailer and combine that income with the $50000.00 and get a 2021 Mach 1 track pack, manual, in fighter jet grey and an Aerovault trailer.

I have space in my father’s barn to winter store the trailer, or add a poll shed addition to one side of my current shed for that purpose.

Alternate universe.

There is a chance my wife would veto selling the 2015 because it’s an automatic tranny as per her preference.

If that were the case, then I fantasize that I’m getting a second two car garage on top of current one.

In that scenario, I’m still selling the trailer and combining revenue with the $50000.00 to buy a 2012-13 Boss 302 and the Aerovault trailer.
Now I have a garage to store both. Sweet!
Corral is now three strong. Sweeter! 😎

If any funds left, a stroker kit for the 2006 and go back to long runner intake and dial back rpm redline to 6500.
Converting it to a torque monster instead of high rpm power wagon.
