    It depends on how you support them. I am not saying I would hand it over to them now do I?

    Support, like best educational universities as well as helping them get their dream jobs. Besides, we are speaking of more on the ground money, such as 5 million.

    I'd live the rest of my life doing art. A mere million is more than enough for that here. The rest would go to support my family.

    You?
    I have though many time about this...Outside of the usual, paying off everything, new cars, new everything, I would buy a shop, or build one, and spend the rest of my life learning how to, and rebuilding muscle cars and either sell, or to the right people give them away.

    When you get around to it. Thanks.


    As of September 2008, there are two known automatic transmission 1969 Yenko Camaros remaining, according to an ESPN auction show.

    On Jan. 17, 2009, a documented ZL-1 COPO, dark green, re-bodied, went for $290,000 at the Barret Jackson Auto Auction as Lot 12773. "Mr. October," Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, was bidding on this car but didn't win it. Another yellow, with original body but non-original heads, with auto transmission, sold for $270,000.

    I would be right there with you if you change 'would be a curse...', to 'could be a curse...' , oh, and drop the no ones family needs $200mil....It isn't for anyone other than me to decide what I need, or don't need....

    Dang, I could have cool tools, a lift even. I could also finish my '71 Chevelle get that 78-82 Corvette and a '65 Impala. Do my Duramax conversion on a early 2000s Tahoe. Wow, having the money to do it all at one time would be cool. I could probably even afford to buy tools someplace besides Harbor Freight. I could actually make friends with the Snap-on guy and actually find him.

    Ok, back on topic.

    The American Dream is not about money. Money is nothing but a tool of establishing value and allowing a common exchange of value, it has no intrinsic value to any sane person, only fools. The "American Dream" is having the freedom, outside of established, artificial socio-economic class and boundaries to realistically pursue those dreams. Money may help you achieve your dreams, but really, money is not the dream itself, after all, money is not useful for anything in and of itself, just a tool to get what you value. What you value is the dream, having the freedom to pursue that dream is the real "American Dream".
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
