I've got $2M. Where to spend it?

Do I go Bugatti? I mean it's fast, it's cool, but how will it be received by the blue bloods at the 4th of July Hampton parties? Might be off putting to Buffy Mitsy and the rest of the gang from Yale.

Or do I go old school classic with something like a1969 Ferrari 365 Berlinetta?

Decisions, decisions.

Some would simply buy a ranch with a wide assortment of farm animals.

Depends on your age and your financial status. If you have $2 mil to spend on toys then your options are wide. If I had a spare $2 mil to spend (not save), I would have several cars(including one built car) I can enjoy and not store plus a garage with a lift and a man cave.

So?
He’s still famous for his profligate spending habits on both nose and arm candy. Pick a weekend and try to top it.

if I had an extra few million I could blow on a car, a Ferrari F40 and a project 911 would be at the top of my list.

well, back to the real world, those few seconds were enjoyed.

in Menlo Park, woodside, Atherton CA, $2mm will buy you a starter apartment with 1 car garage in poor side of the town....

$200MM, then I can help you do some real investment.

I know it sounds terrible but I am speaking the truth

Menage a trois on the F-40 - in the running for one of my all time fav cars (maybe just barely 2nd to a 993 GT2 Evo).
