    Ah, fuggedaboutit.

    Nones of us kin afford to just keep that stuff in a garage. And if we wanted to drive it around, who could afford the insurance? <sigh>

    Heh, heh. At the risk of bein' a real party pooper (and y'all so know that Vega do love a PAR-TAY), I'm just being real.

    Honestly, I found myself thinking, "is that all?"

    I'd rather see Seinfeld's garage.

    Big Pimpin

    Funny, I don't think in all my years I ever saw a shot of the McLaren's engine compartment. I don't think I'd forget those big CF air boxes.

    If we were multi-million aires I guess we could have those toys. However, I keep it simple and get toys I can afford which essentially to someone without any money and may be a bum, says to his hobo friends.......look at his toys and that Litespeed bike is the bomb!

    Gee, I wonder how much it would cost to change a timing-belt or water-pump on that monster... probably more than the entire cars most of us drive..

    A simple timing belt's around 10 grand, the water pump, 30.
    I remember a while ago mr.bean (yes mr. bean) had a burgundy mclaren f1 that had a little fender bender and required the front hood and fender replaced, that was like 80 or 90 grand.

    The hope is that it lasts 50k miles
    and that you dont drive it more then 50k miles
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    I figure I'd rather build a Corvette to do what I wanted. Its not like you couldn't blow that thing away with a super pumped up Mustang. Its done all the time by red neck gear heads nation wide at drag strips. Sure it handles better and has a warranty, but for how much that damn thing costs I can blow out and repair a faster on the drag strip muscle car.

    I don't think anyone buys one of these to go straight really fast, although it does hit about 240mph seating 3 comfortably.

    Besides, if I wanted to go straight really fast, I can just strap a couple of solid fueled motors to any cheap car.
