There was one winning ticket sold for last night’s record setting $1,600,000,000.00 Mega Millions lottery jackpot. Congrats to the winner, hopefully it is one of our readers. Our obvious question is, what is the first vehicle you buy when you have that much, or even half of it after taxes, at your disposal?
Please note, it’s not how many Porsches, which Konnesseigssuit, or which car company. The question is, what is the first vehicle you buy? As in, a daily driver, something to drive to the places where you buy your other hundred crappy cars and potentially have to trailer them back to your new garage warehouse.
I thought about it a little too long. I’d want something comfortable. Something quick and fun. But I’d want something that’s not ostentatious. Last thing I’d personally would want is additional attention when I have a billion dollars burning a hole in my pocket. My first thought was a Range Rover but then I realized that I’m kind falling out of love with them. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk would be a damn good choice but it’s getting kinda long in the tooth.
And then it hit me – the Ford Raptor. It’s quick, fun, comfortable, and relatively understated. I totally surprised myself that the first vehicle I’d buy when I got super-rich overnight would be a pickup truck.
