    Time for You guys to send in some money on the Swedish "Lotto" then : 7 out of 7 on the Lotto-numbers + 2 out of 7 on the "Joker" starting from either end will give You a small winning of 25.9 millions usd.

    Need more??? put some money on the V75 horse-races and if You are the only winner with 7 out of 7 You will get 7.7 mllion USD,that will get You by for a while I suppose...

    I agree... ChromeplaterJosh would be one busy guy if I won the lotto... I'd buy the farmstead next to my Pops', build three shops (One for cold storage of projects, one for dirty work and one for assembly and done cars) and work 10-12 hrs. a day for myself on my own stuff. If it was a big lotto I'd be an active philanthropist to the Make a Wish foundation so I wouldn't feel like a greedy bastard. We can always dream!

    I'd be happy just to win back all the money I've spent on lottery tickets over the years.:(

    probably get enough to buy a nice 50's car.

    glad to see i'm not the only one who thinks about the lottery in a car-related sense. there is a massive old X shaped mall about 200 yards from my house that has been for sale for a few years. i think it started out at about 13 million and when the bank bought it back from the company who filed bankruptcy, i think they got it for under 4 million. it would house a massive shop and as many cars as i could fit in it if i ever win the lottery.

    Can guarantee you that if I was to win the lottery I would still have better sense than to give $700k for a 32 Roadster......

    First, buy a couple lots
    http://www.competitionridgeaz.com

    then build a big ass garage and stuff all my current junk in there.

    then go on a year long travel n buy trip.

    when I find a place I really like, I'd get a place there.

    travel back and forth to the track and shop when the speed need struck, also build at home.
  23. When I win the lottery...

    Oh wait, I guess I would have to buy a ticket first, huh.

    I'd have a nice modest house. Nice area, with a 3 car oversized garage.

    But underneath the whole house would be a Green Hornet style garage filled with all my heart pounders. Yes? yes.

    Well guys ,I've looked long and hard at the lottery thing. I play a buck or two from time to time and found it's a complete waste of money,I've never won a thing. The odds of winning are impossible but the only worse thing is not to bet at all. So I will go on getting
    lottery tickets from time to time,in spite of my vary small chance of winning.
