The lottery is a ticket to dream rather than a sound financial plan—you have a better chance of being struck by lightning than picking winning numbers. But with the latest Mega Millions jackpot touching $1.6 billion, (that’s with a B) a lot of people are getting busy dreaming big.
Even if you desire the pinnacle of motorsport and collectability, the most expensive car to sell at auction realized $48.4 million. That’s just five percent of the lump sum haul of $905 million. That leaves a lot of money for fuel, tires, and event entry fees.

So you like cars and are now flush with cash. What do you do? Do you want to own the best example of a Ford Pinto? Finally finish that LS swap? Go to cars and coffee with a numbers-matching LS6 Chevelle? McLaren? Ultimate air-cooled Porsche 911?
Let us know below. And keep in mind that if you hit the Powerball and the Mega Millions, that ups the total to north of $2.2 billion. Gulp.
