Wink It's time to dream

$365,000,000 Powerball

What would you do if you won?

First the easy ones:
Retire (hire someone to quit for you?)
New polish job for the TT
New axels, tires, brakes etc.
Try to keep up with balrgn as he corners the vintage Airstream market

I would also host the biggest forum rally ever and everyones invited!
Wish me luck!

I'd get a powerstroke deisel, slowly work my way up the ALCAN all the way to the Barents sea, then back down deep into baja to the sea of Cortez. Then I would get serrious about finding somewhere to go camping

Buy Airstream and go back 40 years in design....

Of course I would keep the modern amenities....
But the whole product line would return to beautiful interior real wood cabinet work of mahogany, teak, and birch....
Exotic woods would also be available....
I would listen to my customers and seriously take their desires into consideration as the company evolved.
I would bring back CUSTOMER SERVICE.....

I want a fleet of various Airstreams old and new and tow vehicles, A Dodge Ram, and an Avalanche, a vintage convertable, and nothing but time to travel in them! Ooops I think I may have run over budget.

like most lotto winners, i'd take the after-tax money, buy a house i couldn't afford the taxes on after the money's gone, blow the rest on bass boats, NASCAR and trips to mexico, and move into the trailer when the govt auctions off the estate.



at least it'll be a SHINY trailer!

Please come to Wisconsin to purchase your ticket we can use the money. Last week they sent another state senator to jail at this rate we will have to house and feed the whole bunch of them.

I'd hide. Couldn't handle all the beggers that would show up.

Hey, I won $7.00. The thrills never end. At least the winners are getting closer to Oklahoma. This one was in Nebraska.

The Powerball is for people that didn't pay attention in math class.

That said, I only lost $10.
