13 Budget Dream Garage - £50k total cost!

For those with real world budgets like me, if you could have a dream garage of up to 10 cars for road and track costing max of £50k - what would it be?

Mine would be...(approx cost in brackets)

Peugeot 205 GTI 1.9 (£2.5k)
Peugeot 306 Rallye (2.5K)
Renault Megane R26 F1 (2nd hand) (10K)
Ford Capri 2.8i (3.5K)
Vauxhall Senator 24v (ex police - manual)(£750!)
Mitsubishi EVO 6 (8k)
2008 Honda Fireblade (8k)
Honda Civic Type R (4.5K)
Mk1 Mazda MK5 (1.5K)
Mk1 Lotus Elise (8K)

Total Cost - £49250.

As you can see Im quite partial to my hot hatchbacks!!

xjs.. that's one of those cars I would have in my dream garage as well. That would be a British version of W126 560SEC that's number 1 in my list. But for some reason I am not very optimistic about mechanical durability of old Jaguars. Not to mention the unavailability of spare parts. You can get the gorgeous XJ or XJS relatively cheap but when something breaks, you're screwed. And I am sure something would brake sooner or later.

And since this topic is about dream garage, I am not touching the fuel economy factor either. I guess I can fuel my dream cars with dream petrol that comes for free.

1990 camaro iroc-z (5k with my tune)

1990 bmw 850 (15k with tuning)

1982 porsche 928 (10k with tuning)

1969 ford mustang (15k with tuning)

ok thats 45 grand so far...

2000 volkswagen golf (5k)

1988 mercedes-benz s klasse (5k)

1991 bmw m5 (10k)

1998 bmw 740i (5k)

besides my favorite classics i also love having a cheap hatchback that can be driven like a cheap car.

if there was an isuzu 117 it would be a tough choice which car to lose....

I'm going to have to round the pounds to dollars.

My garage would be simple in that case though:

Corvette C6 Z51 ~ $50,000
