a really neat new jet you might like is the F35-B, supersonic, can stop in midair. can land anywhere and take off in only 300 ft. easier to get a falcon though.

if i had the cash flow, i'd make like larry ellison, buy 2 migs, and have laser dogfights with friends over my estate.
Well we can take a F16-D . it has the double seat.
Mmmm the F35... well i dont like the design... the Gripen? I like it but.... I want the F16CJ52 or the MIG29M2 jejeje.

Cant beleave that a guy did that... He bought 2 MIGs and Fly with friends dogfights? I hate you Larry Ellison.

Well i will add in my Cash Flow a Bar. I always want to have a bar with pool, live music and beer!!!. I will invite all my friends for free every friday night.

200 million...hmmmm

First, purchase a bigger farm and keep farming until it was all gone.

Give lot away but I would have to be careful about that. I think having lots of money has its own set of problems and I'm not sure I would want to foist that on anybody that wasn't ready for it.

In no particular order.

Buy a small south american country
Get my brother all the medical help he needs.
Hang out with the family and show them the world
Build housing for low income people. (seriously, do some good and I love building stuff)
Spend a lot of time trying out cars.
Buy a couple of Saabs- 1 newish and 1 old.
Buy a new tractor with a rock picker
house in London, Spain, Vietnam
house on the Mediterraneum
Change that darn ugly, old, ridiculous lino on the kitchen floor
Spend a lot of time painting and sculpting.

This might sound of glib: create somthing beautiful, lasting and joyful.

Well, first I'd put alot of the money into a variety of different long term investments. I personally see a profitable future in Gold, although I have to find the money to invest in it.

Later I'd do these things..

-Pay for my little bro's college education
-Pay for my wife's college education(if her parents had not already)
-Get my bachelor's degree
-Try to set up a scholarship for prospective students going to UCM with the criteria I specify
-Pay off my parents house and get them a new one
-Pay off my big bros house and get them a new one
-Pay off my parents and brother in laws houses
-Get the best physical therapy I could get to help both my grandmas get better
-Get a new car for my little brother, my mom and dad, and my big bro.
-Set up college funds for my 5 nephews
-Buy some really nice road bikes(Bianchi, Scott, Specialized) and a mountain bike or two(Cannondale!!!)
-Hire Lance Armstrong's, Levi Leipheimer's or Yaroslav Popovich's personal trainer to get in tip-top shape for both me and my wife
-Buy a nice house with enough space for the wife and I, future kids, an airplane, about 5 to 8 motorcycles, 4 to 6 cars, 1 to 3 ATVS, and atleast 6 to 10 bicycles and all the tools needed to work on all of the motor vehicles and bikes.
-Make sure the house is well stocked with very good quality spirits
-Learn atleast 2 or 3 new languages
-Built or atleast "inspire the creation" of my own airstrip with surrounding race track

Here is the car list...
-My current 9-3 upgraded to spec beyond factory, both inside and out with twin VVG turbos
-Koennigsegg CCX or CCR
-BRP Spyder
-TVR Sagaris
-Bentley Turbo R
-Dodge Viper SRT-10

Motorcycle list...
-Ducati 1098S Tricolore
-Ducati Multistrada 1100S
-Ducati Monster S2R 1000
-MV Agusta Brutale
-MV Agusta F4 1000 in "I, Robot" color scheme
-Moto Guzzi Sport 1200
-Victory Hammer
-Aprilia RSV Mille
-Royal Enfield

Bicycle list...
-Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL w/SRAM Force
-Bianchi 928 C2C w/Campagnolo Record Carbon

I recommend saving your bucks and travelling to Cabo..plenty of good tequilas, great times, and Cabo Wabo is something to see. The whole place is beautiful and the climate is perfect(almost no humidity and fairly hot)

I would buy the following:

1) Black c900 Carlsson
2) Black 911 (993) turbo
3) A small house for myself in a nice place nearby here:



Then I would invest, invest and invest.

Btw, speaking of investments, anyone has some real experience with it? How real is some 30% fixed income with possibility to insure the capital invested?

I am thinking about taking a loan from bank (say some $100,000.00) and then invest it. In case you can get some 30% revenue it should be a good deal as long as you can insure the invested capital so that you don't end up with a huge dept in bank...

Lot's of old wine, old whisky (none of your Irish rubbish), fine cigars, a number of houses throughout the world and a Supermarine Spitfire, in which I would pretend to be Douglas Bader. With legs, obviously.

Hmm.

Half of it into investments...
A nice big house in Germany (preferably next to the Bodensee). Autobahn, everyday, baby.

Oh, and my own private race track and airfield, on the same piece of land as my house, probably in the US

2x Opel Astra Station Wagons for ground transportation within my own 'airport+raceway.' why Opel? Because I don't want to waste cars any better than that.

Saab 9-3 Aero. (Daily beater)
Bulletproofed Audi A8L W12 w/ 2 Audi A6 4.2 escort cars. All black.
Mercedes SL65 AMG
BMW 135ti. (Yes 135ti, I'm here in Germany until August, I've seen plenty of them. They're awesome.)
Koenigsegg
Dassault Falcon (to make hops between Europe and the US) probably too expensive, but hey, theres always loans .

A life supply of Radler.
My entire wishlist of guns.
A class 3 license so I can buy all of those.
aannnd. A private maintainence team for all the cars.

I'm with c206pilot for a trip into space. I can't think of anything that would be more incredible than seeing the earth from that far above.

My wife and I would give $1million to each of our immediate family members, and then disappear.

$200,000,000 eh?

I would buy a plot of land away from the rat race, 20 acres should do it. Build a smaller house and a 5 car garage.

Then I would throw these in it.
1)Mercedes U5000 Unimog in full Military trim, Hard top. In the back extra fuel, a little 250 dirt bike, CZ75, FNP9, Mossberg 550, FN P90, and supplies to last 2 months.
2)Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II
3)Ferrari F40
4)My 900 restored to showroom quality
5)Nissan Titan

Save enough for my retirement
Go back to school and find something I actually want to do
Put enough money away for any kids I might have to have a proper education
Make sure my family is financialy secured.

Then I would give the rest of it away to the public school system, the NRA, and pro choice organizations.
