    the think kinda has the looks (a lot of gappage in front end) but in the end it is basicly just a cool looking stock Benz. then real one is going to be partly designed by McLaren. You know that some good body shop dudes in Poland do not have the performance Mind that Mclaren Does.

    no, but its the conversion, a very rough one. We aren't going to Euro. I said 75K Euro b/c the car was built in Poland.

    he built the car from hand, all the panels, everything. Took his 2 yrs i think, and that is working on it daily.

    i was referring to the exchange rate...

    supposedly, a lower value dollar is good for trade.
    but its shit for us inside.

    when the euro first came out, it was like 1.03 per our dollar.
    now its like 1.12 : 1

    When the Euro first came out it was worth 88cents, but a pound steerling (UK) is worth like $1.50 so it not that big of a deal. There money is worth more but english people have less cash to throw around. It's better like we have it. Our money is both valuable and affordable, most of all its "sound as a pound" :lol:
