You're given a million dollars. Car/cars or house?

No tax implications because that just gets the question too messy. Do you go buy your dream car or a fairly nice home? Unless you're in California or NY and you buy a 1 bedroom crapper.


I would go the home myself. My car tastes are not that extravagant.

I would most likely stay in the house I have but would buy some cars. Probably would add onto the shop too.

Acreage, single wide (16’ width) trailer home and 4 bay garage. Small pole barn and a horse, maybe a mule (an animal I can identify with!) too.

Tell me about it, I just closed on a house last Veterans day! I'd put some money into some of the fix-its & upgrades that the house needs. Maybe update to a newer vehicle? Get the veggie garden up & running at 100%. And use the rest to keep this ship afloat in this extremely borked up economy, we'll all are going to need it!!!

I built the house I wanted in 91. I know it's close to 31 years old, but I wouldn't change anything. More car storage and work space would be one thing on my list.

These days a million doesn't buy you much of a house unless you plan to live in Bumfuck, Idaho!!

I'd add on to the shop for the third time and go for more cars, quantity not quality this time just some old drivers to fix up slowly. Probably nothing with the house, it's paid for on an acreage on a blacktop on the edge of town outside of city limits where I can do burnouts all day long, my little slice of heaven.
