My next ride...

I think I've found my next vehicle but am having a little trouble coming up w/ the down-payment. Anyone care to buy a share and share the ride?

What flies 700 mph and costs $58M? New private jet - USATODAY.com

The Gulfstream G650

Yes but THIS was more practical during the Johnson Administration.

Yeah, that skid was just about wide enough to sit on when things got crowded. But not alot of southern protection.

I thought you were supposed to sit on your steel hat when you rode in one of those.

Are you a pilot? And are you willing to haul us around on short notice? If so Im sure we can come up with something.

Not bad, but I've always preferred the Dassault Falcon 900.



Name the owner of this one and win a price!
