5/8 Vertical on 160 or maybe a pair phased, Maybe a pair of 1/4 to 1/2
wave phased on 75, with another tower to support 5 half wave, center
fed slopers, 2, 4L 40's on rotating tower and pretty much the same thing
up through 10. Possibly stacked long Yagis on 6 all at a remote site,
but relatively close to home. If only money was a object, what type?

This is such a relative question it's difficult to say as money is
almost always an object, but varies widely from location to location.
Were I 20 years younger, I'd probably go for a 45G much like I have now,
but a bit taller to support a slopers on 75 and a 3L shorty 40, or shunt
fed on 160 with the shorty 40 on top. A second tower...probably 25G at
maybe 60-70' with a large tribander or log to cover 30-10 with a 7L,
6-meter Yagi above, and slopers for 40, or a 45G of the same height if I
could find sections in good shape. I'd do all my own work and it'd have
to be done a little at a time.
If you hunt they are available. I had enough 25G given to me to put up
a 60 footer and after I had the 45G up I found somewhere between 200 and
300' of 45G in very good shape for well less than $100 per section.
IIRC I could have put up the equivelant of what I have now for a few
hundred dollars plus guys.
