Just buy an island and keep the car there. You know you want to... biggrin.gif

On the Orcas, I think I would rather be eaten by the second than the first.

You mean like this one for $11.5M?

http://www.privateislandsonline.com/islands/tikina-i-ra#

10k acres, plenty of room for a nice highway system, track, 20k sq/ft home, marina, landing strip, all in the sunny climes of Fiji. Don't tempt me.

More like incredibly hot. I'd end up being divorced if I tried to move us there.

Hmm - I'm thinking you better tack a few more million on that price. There was only one picture of ANY structures on the island - and that was one building off in the distance. Fresh water? Electricity? Maybe, maybe not.

This could be your island water company & transportation system:

Oh yeah. I'm thinking $40M, all in. Still, that's not too bad for your own country that's 6x larger than Monaco.

But is it actually a sovereign state, or do you have some sort of oversight? I mean I'm sure day-to-day you could do whatever you wanted, but if you declared yourself Emperor Magick I, would someone ride up on you in a gunboat and tell you "no" ??

Would likely be more like being a governor than a king, but I'd call myself the king anyway. biggrin.gif Technically it's a part of Fiji, but they've never tried to enforce any laws there.

Magick the Terrible - Ruler for Life!

Open up a bank and start laundering money. Set-up servers and mirror all the big torrent sites. Allow wanted criminals to settle there with no fear of deportation - then sell their whereabouts to bounty hunters...

This sounds like fun!

Make gun ownership and polygamy mandatory. Then sell the video rights to Showtime.

I just want the best road course in the world. The rest of that... no, thanks. blink.gif

I can barely keep up with one wife, why would I want more?

I was thinking that the combination of mandatory gun ownership & multiple wives would make for good entertainment. As the Ruler, of course you wouldn't have to follow the rules. Sovereign Immunity and all that... wink.gif

Does this vehicle scream "redneck" to anyone else? lol.
