    Yes, that's mostly fine. In the second sentence, we'd rather say nešto novca (nekog means 'someone/something unknown'); pare (gen. pl. parâ is less formal than novac.

    Could we say: dabogda imao ja auto?

    Technically yes, but dabogda is typically used to wish something to somebody else.
