What's in your dream garage?

Feasible

- The blue MJ actually finished

- The red MJ finished

- An XJ with less rust than my current one

- The Suzuki fully built

 

 

Stuff I want but will probably never have

 

- An original Gladiator

- 92 MJ off-road race truck to match my red MJ.

- 70' Challenger T/A 340 6pack in Plumb Crazy and black interior.

- 69' Charger General Lee built on a Crown Vic chassis. (Might actually build this one as it's my number one dream car)

- 67' Shelby GT500 'Eleanor'

- Square body Dodge Power Wagon 4door long bed with a diesel.

Those sound like some fun choices.

Hmmmm.

 

289 AC Cobra

'67 Camaro 4 speed

Modern crew cab 4wd 6' bed SRW 1 ton diesel pickup, probably a GMC

1986 CJ-8 4.6 Stroker, AX-15, waggy axles

Mid 80's Suburban, LS drive train swap, 3 row seating

My Comanche, finished, and redone to fix my poor choices

My CJ-10a finished

 

Sounds like a bunch of vehicles that would all be pleasant to drive.

And other than the Cobra, not out of my reach.

Yeah, with unlimited budget I'd probably rival Jay Leno. :))

Monarch 10EE Metric. Working CNC Mill and Lathe. Running '75 Bricklin SV-1.  Now if I had the money, AMC AMX-3. 

Those would be cool. A friend of ours owns a tool and die shop. The machines in there are fascinating. Also, you own a Bricklin SV-1, correct? If so, you should start a build thread on it.

My 89 and 91 Comanche

Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Lancia Delta Integrale Evo

1969 Camaro

CJ8 Scrambler

Chevy SSR

Those all sound like cool vehicles to own. Imagine the looks that you would get in the Lancia. Do you have a build thread on your 91? I don't think I've read it.

Those would all be fun rigs to drive. I love Excursions/Suburban 2500s

I have all those in my garage, except the AMX-3. Look up AMX-3. The Monarch 10EE I have is a round dial, so not metric, nor 30" bed. I do have metric change gears. Running is the issues. I do have a Bridgeport clone mill and a Well saw. Its a tight fit.

because I prefer reliability and safety when towing, and a full-custom tiny truck is not going to cut it hauling 5000 pounds to Moab and back.  10k if I've got a buddy's rig on the rear dragger.  bigger is better.  :D

Yes, bigger is better, what I meant was a custom crew cab Comanche on a chassis like that.
