Default Re: Honda vs. Mercedes

I have been shopping for a replacement to my 911 Twin Turbo and have been looking at a Ferrari 575m used. The market has KILLED these cars in the last year (much like my 911 but for bigger dollars) and the salesman (who I know and who is cool) said "the Maranello - the most reliable Ferrari out there". I got scared.

Moreover, I can't seem to find one to drive or play with as they aren't made anymore. There is one in my old home town of Philly but I am not going to fly back JUST to see if I want it.

Maybe I can put more of my money in the stock market. That seems to be a loser for me every day but perhaps cheaper than an oil change on a Ferrari!!!!

I think I am over the whole expensive fast cars thing. I personally came to the realization I will never have the funds to truly drive them as they should be (all out on the track) and therefore will only be wasting them and my money on maintaining them.

I am keeping my Honda element and truly enjoy not giving a rats butt about it. If it gets scratched or damaged, so what???

There is something very liberating about not caring about your car!




That said, I look really good in a 575!

How's it go. . . it you have worry about the price of an oil change, then you can't afford the car. . . or something like that. . . ha ha

I decided to wait for the V10 NSX and Lotus Esprit to come out.

Put a V10 in the Lotus Esprit and their won't be room for a munchkin in the cab, forget about keeping it on the road under full throttle!

I`m not. Still holding out. The track would be nice, however, there is something about having that engine under the hood, while on the interstate or highway, and saying see ya!!!!!!!! at anytime. Its about the fun. Now, here is the question kenny and Jerry, what gives the most natural high, or pleasure, 0 - 60 in your favorite sports car, or Isaac Hayes on your Meridian, Mark Lev, Revel, Wilson, Mythos, Esoteric, etc.???


Things make you say Hmmmmm.....
