Dream garage: 5 car maximum, all different manufacturers

Twisting the prior topic, if you had to pick 5 cars for a dream garage, all from different manufacturers, what would they be ?

no special order, and no ferrari's then this time

1936 Bugatti Type 57 S Atlantic s/n 57.374
1936 Delahaye 135 Figoni & Falaschi s/n 48666
1955 Aston Martin DB3S
1970 Porsche 917K still haven't made up my mind if i would take a regular 917K or the only streetversion
2004 Pagani Zonda Roadster

This was easier... I just copied the list from the other topic... 5 different manufacturers

1: Jaguar XKR (Black) or a Jag E-Type (Red)... I really, really, really, cannot choose so please don't make me
2: Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. (Silvergrey)
3: Shelby Cobra (Blue with white stripes)
4: Lancia Delta HF Integrale (Rally colors)
5: Ford GT40. (Gulf colors)

Saleen did a lot of work for Ford and decided to make his own supercar. This is one killer American car:

This car would HAVE to be in my garage. I just love it. There are a couple in the Bay area here, and one of the owners also has a 360 Spider.

ofcourse they are street legal, altough i don't know who imports them to europe, if somebody is doing that already even.
i've only seen them race here in the FIA-GT & LMES
that streetversion i saw at Monterey last year

i got a pretty good 35mb videoclip of the Saleen wich also shows a bit of the factory
else i'll try to upload it to YouSendIt and then post the link
