    It couldn't get me home in the winter up the mountain in the snow. I would like a jet pack.

I'd get it, hoping it was possessed- that the car loved me, played ONLY 50's rock n' roll, & could repair itself/murder my enemies. Sold.
    I made the connection to Christine ('58 Furys were only available from the factory in white with gold trim, so cherry red makes the nod to the book a little obvious...), I thought there had to be more to it than that.

    You mean specific 'crappy' cars?
    Yes.

    Or just my general fithy homeless tastes?
    No, I already know you like to live like a bum.

    Cars.. I like plain old station wagons. No particular make/model. The hobo in me likes that one could camp with it. I also like how inconspicuous it is.
    Boxy, used Volvos. I like the 144 aesthetically, but I'll assume they're costly since they're older. Any newer, beat-up one would be fine.
    Interesting. Kind of funny actually, being that the station wagon body style has become progressively less popular in North America. I was in traffic with a newer Volvo V70 on the weekend and it dawned on me that Volvo doesn't even sell a wagon in North America anymore. The V40 is gone, the V70 is gone. You could count the XC70—after all it's really just a V70 with a suspension lift and some plasticky bits stuck on it to make it look SUVish—but it's just not the same.

    A friend in high school briefly had a beater 740 Turbo; 4-speed manual with a separate overdrive activated by a red button on top of the gear shift. He didn't have it long, it fell apart on him.

    What do you think of vans? Something like a VW Vanagon for example. Or maybe that's a little too 'hippie' and not enough 'hobo'.

    No, the definition of freedom for me means to minimize my responsibilities and things I have to care for (except for people which are fun). Buying a ferrari would mean that I have to pay high taxes, hilariously high amounts of gasoline, plus I'd have to care for the car not getting damaged or stolen. Even if that all were irrelevant moneywise, it still wouldnt turn me on. I'd rather use the money and build my dream car myself and it sure would have an electric engine

    I resent I had to pick the option that insulted you (you materialistic baffoon...). Why do the INFJs get the option to say politely no -what would I do with it?-?

    And dont even get me started on the 'Yes!! (Im an ENFP!) option

    No, never. Not really because I'm not materialistic. I can just think of a few thousand things I'd rather do with the money. Most of them are travel. Can't drive a Ferrari to Egypt.

    What do you think of the XC60? It's pretty snappy looking for a Volvo.

    @fia's jet pack idea is brilliant!

    Also, if we could afford a Ferrari, then affording to travel shouldn't be an issue. I'm assuming in this scenario, we're filthy rich! Hell, we could throw the car on a cargo ship and drive it all over Europe like lunatics!
