I like the color on that Lancia - question though: what's the little silver "dot" under the door? Is that a mount for a curb whisker? blink.gif

I have another possibility in mind.....maybe the Ferrari driver was attempting to troll the Honda drivers.

 

What I mean by that....years ago, I had no car, and frequently borrowed friends' cars. So I was out one day with a friend's Camaro (a 2.8L V6 model with a honking loud intake and exhaust that sounded much more ferocious than it really was) and I was at a stoplight next to a kid in a pimped-out WRX (you know the type.....coffee-can size tailpipe, etc.). Now I already knew that about 400 yards past the intersection was a spot where the sheriff's deputies liked to hide with their radar gun....so I starting gunning the engine, and giving the Subie driver the "let's go" stare....sure enough, he tore on up away from the light, and I pulled away normally. Sure enough, about the time I got to that spot, I saw that deputy come squealing out and giving chase to the Subaru. very_evil_smiley.gif

) but that should lower his ego biggrin.gif
 better yet, a Volvo http://www.autoblog.com/2013/03/27/volvo-s60-xc60-v60-r-design-new-york-2013/

I see that type a lot. I'm sure they think they're "winning", when all I want is for them to go on by, because their fart can mufflers are annoying me.

If it was $18K on one pair of underwear - that would be bragging!

Um...what? blink.gif

Can we get an example of what kind of items contribute to that kind of ticket? My mountaineering gear doesn't even cost that much...ph34r.gif

Jeans, underwear, sweaters, blouses, cashmere socks, Prada shoes and boots, and a Chanel lambskin coat. And this was during their Winter "30% off sale". confused.gif

Daily tally... 28k. No, I don't feel bad about buying cars. Not even a tiny bit.

I say good for her! You really can't be wearing the latest Costco shipment when you step out of a Ferrari.

But I do get what you're saying. I still think that stuff is massively expensive, I know...I know...

Boo! She even made me try on some clothes. frown.gif

Okay, as a filler, to seal a deal (both are kit replicas, of course):

Type 51 Bugatti


or

250 GTO (as if I needed to label it)
