    Guns. Just guns.

    Maybe one of these in my garden.

    and the rest to cancer research/macmillan

    if you’re giving it away, can I have some?
    The Pork Pie Charity Fund is always looking for donors.

    Guns. Just guns.

    not a bad idea as they will likely appreciate in value and you don’t pay capital gains tax on guns

    Two Pints and some crisps – you never win more than a tenner.

    depends on how much – but lets assume we are talking £100 million + euromillions win –

    Really nice family home near where I live now (North Kent)
    Flat overlooking the Thames, near tower bridge – for nights out in London
    Cars – starting with an Audi RS6, a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and a Discovery 4.
    Little place in the Alps for summer biking and winter snow.
    motor home for festivals/events

    I’d then quietly give a fair bit to various charities, including the one run by the doctor who is presently treating my little brother’s incurable cancer – because without him, everything above won’t be as good.

    As Freeagent for the big Euro win. Just enough to the children that they need to carry on and make something of themselves in the region of 250k each.
    I reckon I can manage on £20 million and the local hospices get the rest. (Family has a loyalty card with Ipswich hospice or so it seems).

    Huge tracts of land. Then I’d carve trails and berms and jumps and rocks and climbs and bombholes all over the bits of land on every scale from BMX to Humvee. Then I’d surround the land with signs saying ‘no trespassing’, rip down the fences, and walk away.

    A house in a nice part of Bristol
    A country pile with some land in Wales (and employ some people to make trails)
    A couple of fast cars
    An assistant to deal with (i.e. reject) all the begging letters I will invariably get

    Alpine retreat (Meribel)
    Singer 911 or Eagle E type Speedster
    Ariel Atom
    Unlimited access to the Nurburgring
    Audi RS 6 daily driver
    Weekday residence in Primrose Hill
    Weekend/Family pad /country residence in rural Dorset
    Pay off brothers and girlfriends mortgages
    Buy myself a workshop with a wood turning lathe
    Increase bikes to N + 11.

    That`d do for starters.

    I always thought rather than buy a great big shiny car it’d be nice to have someone drive me about when I want to go somewhere so I could sit in the back and play video games or read the paper or read a good book, that’d be mint.

    I’d buy Odell brewery, lots of highland bulls, some land in Moab and host the biggest, baddest, Bikes. Beer and BBQ festival EVER.

    nice bit of land somewhere close to where I live now to build a big bungalow on.
    Jaguar XF Sportbrake
    Villa on a small Greek island
    Then put a sizeable amount into a high interest account to keep me going and give the remainder away to charity

    It’s only done 300km because that when it started to rain and it broke down 🙂

    Another one who’d be bidding for STW too,purely to ensure that Smut was removed from the adverts but was compulsory in the threads

    If won the lottery I would build a silly stupid engine, gearbox inside something akin to a touring car. (but still with the ratty exterior)

    This is my brother-in-law’s car – it looks a heap but it has a Chevy V8 in it and sounds like it wants to eat you when it is started up 🙂

    Ohh, and this is his too…

    I don’t think I’d change my bikes. I would however buy a track bike and possibly a folder, not sure if I’d really need one mind 🙂 Also possibly a DH bike and BMX, those would be in doubt though.

    Have none of you read the “who buys chelsea tractors” thread. Everyone will hate you.

    My ex-boss landed $30M (after tax) on a company sale and bought….. a Golf 😀

    Lots of rs6s there!
    I’d have to buy a farm in the Yorkshire dales and keep pigs, ride bikes mess round with land rovers and drink beer in the warmer months, I’m lucky enough to have all the bikes and cars I want, So I’d spend the rest taking or sending my friends and family on fab hols with a first port of call being a month in the Rockies snowboarding.

    Some place in Mallorca

    A bike shop which was next to my cake shop with my personal whore house above them both.

    Training coaches who just happened to be fit, firm and female.

    Another business franchise 80-100 miles away and then another equi distant so I would have a 3 day loop with accommodation and recreational needs taken care of.

    A first class flight to New Zealand for me and the OH.
    A house overlooking Lake Wakatipu.
    A chalet in the alps, Meribel or Courchaval I think.
    A selection of cars.
    A Patek Philippe 5970.
    A brewery.

    And then give a whole lot to charity and to friends and family.

    You win the lottery, what do you buy?

    Depends on the amount surely?

    Over £6 million is properly life changing, and a lot of things I’d buy then (e.g. Mk.Vb Spitfire) wouldn’t be realistic with less money.

    But yeah, nicely fitted out workshop/machine shop/garage would be up at the top of the list. Indoor shooting range too (for those windy days).

    buy land around the edge of Munich with the view to it increasing in value.
    buy a mountain in the Bavarian Alps and start carving some trails.
    build a house on my mountain. house must have a small woodwork shop.
    buy a roof terrace flat in Munich.
    a small cottage (akin to what you see on Midsommer Murders) somewhere in England.
    a large house in Vinschgau that i would run as a business. make into a bike hotel and employ locals.
    a large hydroponic set up in the Bavarian house.
    a “big” bike. i’d keep the DB Alpine as it is… it’s pretty much perfect.
    a Caterham 7.
    a VW transporter with bike rack.
