If I had $140,000

I'd buy me a new car. Not just any car. Here.....let me find some pictures.










Some of you might be thinking that this is just a corvette. You couldn't be more wrong! Corvettes don't come with twin turbos. They don't come with over 600hp to the wheels all while running on pump gas. They don't even come this sexy! Only 25 of these sexy things will be built next year. I put this car up there with the 1969 Yenko Camaro

Almost 40 years later, these Camaros have been appraised and sold for well over $1.1 million USD at Barrett-Jackson auctions.
I can't help to but to think about what a corvette like that would be worth 40 years from now. It's not a car you'd drive every day to work and school. So you might have 80,000 miles on it by then.


Maybe you are asking your self why not just buy a Porsche. The 911 turbos start out around $130,000 (I got mine up to over $150,000). Then I wouldn't have a one of 25 corvette. It would be a Prosche, just like every other one out on the road.

So yeah, that is what I would do with $140,000.
