Fantasy garage

For some time now, I've been compiling a list of the cars I'd want to own if I ever became wealthy—really, really wealthy, Bill Gates-style wealthy. The result looks a lot like something Jay Leno would come up with. Yes, it's ridiculously long, but what is a fantasy garage for if not to be ridiculous?

There's no common thread, really, except that they're all cars that evoke a memory, represent a time and place, or that I just plain like. There's everything here from capitalist Rolls-Royces to the fruits of the Soviet auto industry.
