chiphomme,

Sorry that you feel poor. [}:)]

But for me, I would leave that Porshe GT
at the showroom floor, they are a very
common vehicle here in new york city.


I would rather keep my G-Cabrio and I enjoy driving it all the time !!

Now that is exotic !

You're pampered if you see $450k cars all the time.

As for me, it was a real treat to see that vehicle.

Take a road trip !

chiphomme,

Take a road trip in your 2006 CLS55,
to Los Angeles, California,
Las Vegas, Nevada, Miami, Florida,
New York City and you will see at
least one every 5 days in the city.

As for a Gwagen Cabrio, I would bet you, the only person you will see is me !

Now that is being pampered, a Gwagen Cabrio owner [:)]

RE: Makes me feel poor

Pleeeeeeaaaase that thing is like a Suzuki Sidekick or an Isuzu Amigo.... I like Mercedes don't get me wrong but for off road nothing tops an 80's and 70's Toyota Land Cruiser. I still have a functioning old fleet of them on the farm and they require minimum maintenance.

Performace, Performace !

Looking like and being one is two different books.

Don't hate because you can't afford a G-Cabrio !

Damn right. And anybody that needs pampering in a 4x4 is a living mixed metaphor.
