    Craziest thing you've bought with your winnings

    following on from the craziest bet, I was thinking what have you bought or have on your wish list to buy from your winnings. I always find buying with winnings is so much sweeter then using my own money :p

    Few years back I bought myself a used jaguar, it was only 4K but a classic and sitting in those armchair seats surrounded by all that wood and leather was something else. Of course needed lots of small wins to keep filling that baby up cause at 12mpg didn't get very far :p

    On my wish list, a round trip for two to Las Vegas, I figure I need a 5K hit for that one.

    The craziest thing I ever bought with my big winnings was more casino chips.

    Ooh, which Jag?

    I have inherited from my Dad a love of all things Jaguar.

    My first car, when I was 18, was a 1985 4.2 XJ6 Daimler - an incredibly beautiful car. It had loads of problems and only lasted a year, but I loved it lots. I paid 4.5k for the car and 2k for the insurance :)

    Last year I found myself sans car, and bought a 1.5k XJ6. It only lasted a few months sadly.

    Since then I've decided to give up on trying to find an old jag for a low price. My next car purchase will be a 2002-2003 supercharged XJR, which is pretty much my dream car.

    I have always wanted a 60s E Type, and will definitely get one at some point. But I've realised it's entirely impractical as an only car, so won't get one for a while. Plus I'll need to spend 40k or so to get one in top condition :)

    The craziest thing I've paid for with my online gambling (winnings and a little work thrown in) has been my credit card debt. :D

    Winnings have also paid for my spending money in London when I visit in a few weeks. :thumbsup:

    Oh, yeah! My fave is that elegant 3.4 litre (?) Jag from the 'sixties on which today's S type is modelled. A sleek, speedy machine with big red leather armchair seats, lots of tumbler switches and silky walnut woodwork. Whoa!

    I would of course accept a Big Six Healey from that era, too!!!

    Had a 1980 XJ6 in mint condition. Most comfortable ride I think I'll ever experience, but it was a mechanic's dream. I babied this car, yet the transmission, electrical system, and eventually a cracked head and engine block ended my short-lived love affair with that car.

    The first one I bought was a 4.2 XJ6 Daimler, but for me it wasn't the same even if they were better equiped. I wanted the Jaguar badge looking back at me from the steering wheel, so traded in for a real jag. It was an A plate (1984?) series III with pepper pot wheels. Love these cars as they're classics but still modern enough for a good drive, the one after the XJ40 was a real dog! If you go for another one, get the car insured under a classic car policy, it only cost me 160 per year but with limited mileage.

    If I don't make it to Las Vegas then maybe an XJS next.......

    Craziest thing my big high roller winnings (yeah right) have bought?

    Well, it wasn't a Jag (bummer) or bass or anything else you folks would probably find that exciting.........but it sure bet sleeping on the floor. :eek2:

    Well I wouldn't call the purchase crazy - but with my January 2005 profit I bought the wireless laptop I am typing this on right now. :cool:

    But what I do with it might be considered crazy; In the summer I take it to the garden, and in the winter into my bloody freezing garage - so I can indulge in an occasional cigar while playing! (No smoking in the house!).
    I have also been known to take it into the bathroom and play poker or slot machines while laying in the bath! :D

    I don't often buy daft things with winnings.

    Often I "reinvest" a big hit by taking on a bonus or tournament that I would otherwise miss.
    I bought a PC "for my Mum" last year so that I could play when visiting.
    Buying luxuries means that the money cannot be converted back into casino chips. I also get several gifts due to my VIP status at several casinos.

    Every now and then I buy something a bit unusual.......
