What would you buy with $75,000?

So lets say you just got handed $50,000 cash, and you could buy anything you wanted. BUT it had to be business related. One other thing, it would be to start a new business, forget about what you already have. Please give rough prices for items.

1.2010 Chevy 2500HD Crew Cab,with Boss Poly V-Plow: $35,000
2.18' Open Landscape Trailer, Tandem Axle, with Racks: $2,000
3.2010 Exmark Lazer Z 60" with Bagger: $13,000
4.2010 Exmark Metro 32": $5,000
5.2010 Exmark Metro 48": $5,000
6.2010 Exmark Metro 26":1,000
7.Stihl Line Trimmer (x3): $1,000
8.Stihl Backpack Blower (x2): $1,000
9.Sthil Hedge Trimmer: $500
10.Sthil Edger: $500
11.Sthil Chain Saw (x2): $1,000
12.Yamaha Grizzley 700, With Plow: $10,000

That is exactly $75,000.

Good thinking, used truck costs half as much as a new one. But i would go all out, but not at the same time. I would buy a little at a time.

This whole question is a trick, you ostensibly only won $ 50,000, however, you plan to spend $ 75,000 ... caught you !!

So my question is do you have this cash in hand. If you do my suggestion would be to buy some good growth and/or income mutual funds (which are on sale at a great price right now). The only problem with what you have listed is that everything in that list is going to decline in value the second you buy it (the truck quite rapidly i might add). Im just not much of a flashy spender i like to have nice things and take care of them quite well but when i buy i get value i could care less about warranties and brand new mowers. Many people might disagree, but spend the money how you wish its not mine.
