I guess I'm not very frugal- I do a number of people's fantasies. However, that is why I have to keep working full-time, so I guess my fantasy would be to not work full-time and still be financially OK, give to charity, adopt multiple senior mutts, and get to Colorado or some other horse vacation every one or two years. But not working.

If I was unbelieveable rich, I would buy a NEW Escalade and go to one of those places that modify cars and have them turn it into a TWO DOOR. I would have the only two door Cadillac Escalade ESV in the whole world!

(And while I was at it I'd have them yank those stupid DVD players out of the headrests. I hate those things).

Ah, sweet fantsies! What's yours?

I would change my lifestyle alot. Not that I mind my current lifestyle but if you got money for nicer cars, clothes, house why not take advantage of it.

In terms of the two door thing, i could be mistaken but aren't two door cars typically more to insure? Why do you go for two door over 4?

I'd open an art gallery.

Buy the best sheets money can buy.

And have my teeth whitened.

I would travel internationally a lot. I want to see a lot of the world, get to experience and immerse myself in different cultures.

If I suddenly became filthy rich, I would quit work and build an honest to god, highest quality possible mansion by myself over a couple years.

The funny thing is I don't even want to live in a mansion... I just want to create something that people will pay 5 bucks a head to tour and awe about in a hundred years.

I'd get a pilot's license and rent a plane whenever I fancied. Fly to Nice for some seafood, back to the Carolinas for some BBQ, etc.

i LOVE this idea too......
