Default What would you do to your PT if you won powerball?

So with the recent giant jackpot on powerball, the mind starts racing with what you could do with all that money.

Specifically in the cruiser department, what would you do?

For me I'd probably make my PT a coupe, or get a convertible and put mine's roof and hatchback on it. Get a PTeazer front end, and maybe swap the powertrain. Keep it front wheel drive, but try something a little beefier, maybe out of the minivans.

$570,000,000 (actually, two people had the winning numbers so $285,000,000 each.)

Sorry to say, as much as I really like my PT Cruiser, I don't think it would be in the picture.

I love my Cruiser but if I won that much it would be gone.

I would finish the project car. But l would find some more company for them. Maybe a Cuda or something like that.

Afraid the PT would have to wait until things got squared away with the new airplane(s) and the custom built sport fishing boat.

Man I can't believe some of you guys would kick the Pt to the curb! My current PT..road trip to Summit racing and buy one of everything they sell for the PT!

Second trip would be to a car dealer for a new Dodge Cummings Diesel, then a trip for a new two car, tow trailer.

Then E bay for a busted PT GT, cheap in some god forsaken part of the country, then road trip to go pick it up!

That's how I'd roll!

We're talking about coming home with ($285,000,000) TWO HUNDRED and EIGHTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS ....and you'd go looking for a cheap PT GT ?

You could build one from scratch (or have it built) and throw in a Viper V10 and still have enough left to buy the presidency, or a small country somewhere.

Heck, right now you could pick up Brazil, the shape they're in and still have change left over.

I would end up broke, divorced and all of the family members who I didn't know existed would want to get to know me


The lottery is for people that aren't good at math.

I prefer a stable retirement plan where I don't have to rely on social security.

I have that now but I'd still wouldn't mind a couple extra million from some windfall like the lottery.
