    that's better...

    So If I sold my house, both cars, one kidney, and one lung I would only have to finance $10,000. You think my bed would fit in the trunk?

    daayaamm the x's are tizitez y0, at 26500 rpm the v-tech be-a-kickin' fo shizzle.

    i see SL55 AMG's almost everyday. well maybe not AMG's but SL55's, I see AMG's every other day. boy are those things sweet.

    I think I'd take that car over a skyline or a fd3s.

    Mercedes are starting to make manuals right??

    26500 rpm wasn't my fault, that was a direct copy/paste from another website. Fixed now, though.

    Anyway, Here in Memfrica, everyone is underpaid, so we don't see many cars like this. Ferrari's are RARE to see. Maybe one a month. Vipers are one a week or so. NSX's are like cockroaches. You see them scattering when the light hits them, about one a day/night. ;)

    I was pretty pleased to see such a high dollar, BEAUTIFUL car tonight.
