Thanks to all of you who played the Fantasy Garage game two weeks ago. After much deliberation, I decided that…I can’t decide. I’m gonna need your help to decide a winner.

However, I DID choose a few nominees for to you to pick from. Let’s review them below.

From TorontoSkeptic we got this gem of an entry that uses a different marque for each category, which I will call “A Rainbow of Choices”

Compact – Focus SE with winter package, $20k

Subcompact – Kia Rio LX hatch, $14k

Small crossover – Infiniti QX50 Journey AWD, $40k

Mid-size crossover – Nissan Murano SL, $35k

Trucks – don’t particularly want one, I would go for something weird like the Honda Ridgeline Sport, $31k

Finally, here’s Lou_BC’s entry, entitled “Eff it, I want a Raptor”

I think any of these would make a hell of a garage. Vote for your winner below—the winner will get something really awesome TBD (but I’m thinking an American Endurance Racing shirt signed by me and Jack B., assuming we both survive our race at Watkins Glen later this month).

Good luck to all the nominees!

    Great lists. The nod goes to "Hellcat Plus" because if the excellent balance. Rainbow and Raptor are both great garages, but have too many vehicles that wouldn't be there at the end of the first month. The rocket sled is cool, but busts the budget too far for anything else of interest to fit under the cap.
