I'd rather have a Porsche. The GT- R , looks like something off a NASCAR track.

Yeah, good luck getting one for $70K. The stealerships only get 7 a year right now, and they're all marked up an additional $30K. Money has to be no object to anyone driving one around right now.

Personally, I'll be driving one around 2-3 years FROM now. I'll buy one at an auction, preferably damaged and most likely get the car, plus bodywork and be out for around $45K. And from the looks of it already, this car is a lot like the Z.. affordable to a slightly higher deomgraphic of shit drivers, and plentiful at post-wreck auctions.

Any doubters? See ya in 2-3 years
Steve, if you are referring to the GT-R, both McDuck (Andy) and a guy from ZROC bought them list price from Pinehurst Nissan. No dealer "premium" whatsoever, both are "in contract" and Don may have his at ZDayZ. But I still don't think they are worth $70,000, although I like the look and the concept. And I am not so sure that you will see a plethora of wrecked ones - the demographic, I believe, is more than "slightly" higher.
On the original photo, I guess Richard might say "Understeer is when the front of the car hits the wall".

I like my 350 but I love my 300ZX TT more.

The best thing about these pictures- the car isn't even totalled on paper. At least it shouldn't be. I saw a Lexus IS350 in about the same condition waiting to get repaired w/o turning into a salvage. I wonder how the resale value works on these things.
