My eyes! That's a blindly clean machine. Does anyone actually drive it?

I was wondering the same thing myself but I seriously doubt it.

I'm sure youwould fire it up regularly but probably not drive it on the road.
Chrome and/or paint on machine parts tend to make things overheat and go kaboom.

Lotsa nice clean work there indeed but .... I despise trailer queens, which this problee is. If you don't drive a car, why own it (*facepalm*)

I used to maintain a buddys '62 & '64 Impala SS's and a '67 Chevelle Malibu SS he owned. They were all show cars and immaculately restored but they were also daily drivers and always driven to the car shows he entered. He said owning a beautiful car you didn drive was like havin an uberhot wife you never had sex with ... what's the point?

Robert was a real character, he also used to say "Show me a man that won't eat his wifes pussy or jack his dog off and I'll take both of 'em away from him!". Like I said, he was a character. Sadly he "left the buildin" a few years back disappointed smiley

I second that, Kim. If ya can't/won't drive it then what's the point. That's like a couple of guys I used to work with who bought new pickup trucks but though they did drive them regularly they wouldn't use them to haul anything - what's the point? I like the way Jay Leno does it, taking them out for a spin now and then.

It's like building a beautiful ham sandwich and never eating it.

Agreed quasi and then there's my other fave, people who are willin to plop down an extra $10k for an AWD system on their pickup they'll never haul a damned thing with, nor ever even let the tires see anything but nice smooth pavement (*facepalm*)

I mean yeah, it's certainly their $$ and they can spend it however they choose, but again, what's the point confused

BTW, yeah Leno is a real car guy and all around lover of vintage and unusual machinery. If I had his bucks we'd problee be a lot alike in playin with the toys we accumulated. The biggest difference is that I'd have a cuppla machinists on staff just to allow me to build my own dreams.

For years now I've dreamed of buildin a GT-40 with a monster turboed 4 banger AWD set up. At problee somewhere around 2000lbs and 800-1000hp, AWD with massive brakes THAT would be some fun Dancing

How about a Lotus 7 replica Kim?

Always had a fondness for Lotus' but .... to me the original GT-40 is my all time fave, closely followed the Lamborghini Countach rock on

BTW, true story : Ford Europes prez in the era of the GT-40s was given a one off streetable version GT-40. After 2yrs Ford offered to sell it to him for $2k and he said .... Nah.

He also later wrote that was the single largest car mistake he ever made drinking

I bought a Ford F-150 4x4 at a real bargain, saved thousands. The only thing is I only use the four wheel drive a couple of times a year when it snows and I don't really need it then. I really wish I could have gotten the same truck without the 4x4 and increased my gas mileage. My dream vehicle is a '40s model jeep like they used back during WWII in perfect condition. I would use it daily and not just stare at it.
