I'm picking up my new vehicle on Monday.

I feel like a proper redneck!

2011 Ford F-150 SVT/Raptor.

I've only lived here for two months. What's wrong with me?

I could use the snow and mountain terrain here in Colorado as a excuse but if I'm honest, it's total bollocks and it can be the last stupid car I own before me and my wife have kids.

You shouldn't let having kids stop you from having stupid/impractical cars.

It never stopped me. Have always had at least one.

He said he feels like a "proper redneck", so I had assumed that there was a gun rack already installed.

Rural rednecks show their weapon...urban peeps...well hide and seek.

Something to drool over.

If I could only have one, I think I would take the 1952 Ferrari 340 [3], the 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C [10] would be my backup choice.

I'll take the 1925 Bugatti. When I clicked to the Ferrari F50 my first thought was "Batmobile"

That's also very tempting, I had a Matchbox one when I was a child. Unfortunately it is highly unlikely I could ever own an original, and these are tempting too, but also likely unattainable for me, though tantalizingly close, at least compared to an original.

I passed a bright yellow Bugatti very similar to that one on I-10 last year.
