Bronica is just like the RZ67 which I have...

i would treat all my ladies to a nice, bubbly CLA then take them on the road... a long, long road
I need nothing more than I already have - but, I would like a Rollei Wide.
I would not change much, I have really spoiled my self in the past 5 years.
But, if money were no object, I would buy a home in the town I live instead of rent, that way I could have a larger darkroom space.....average home price 6.3 million.
I would also buy retail space downtown to have a gallery and teach workshops.
Oh yes, I would pay big bucks to have two vertical 4x5 and one horizontal mural enlargers made custom from the ground up.

At first i didn't understand you meant ladies in a figurative manner.

I'm generally happy with what I have, but I may treat myself to an Alpa 12TC.
I think the main thing would be to get into 4x5, and pay someone to handle the film loading and processing. He/she would give me loaded film holder, with a film of my choice it them. I would return the used holder to him/her, he would have them processed/scanning/printed at great/experienced lab, and return it all to me.
My main expense would be travel though.
Money is no object, it's my lack of ability

Time machine, definitely. Other than that, someone said a Leica 4x5. Absolutely agree. This would be a great thing. An actual precision-made 4x5 camera that was in perfect alignment. Except I wouldn't want it to be a wooden camera. If sky is the limit on price there are much, much better materials than wood.
One more Hasselblad 500 and a backup set of the lenses I already have.
One more Leica M, with a backup set of lenses.

+1. I already have more material possessions than anyone realistically needs. I, too, would opt for the education route: pursuing further studies in philosophy, art history, and literature would be my dream. And, like you, Sir, I would like to see where these avenues took my photography...

A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.
