Look, we had a nice forum -- with persons that could afford and at least appreciate a CGT. And many who could honestly evaluate the car (and sometimes aspire to it). Now we have redleg321 with some big Soviet hat who is clueless about car prices and I seriously doubt has driven a F40, F50 or F1 (the car that I would actually put in the same camp as a CGT if not better just for seating configuration). But there you go -- the perils of social media. The do nothing's and have nots pretending that they are just as knowledgable or experienced -- or deserve to be! -- but alas, actually aren't. But that doesn't stop the endless self conjecture that drivels onto a blog without any back-up or support. Flame suit on (oh tee hee hee) -- really? No problems if have an opinion if actually could provide real support for your arguments. But knowing all or these cars, I highly doubt it. It's cool to be cool. Or to pretend to be cool. But there is nothing cool about a con artist...

Actually, not a "con artist" but those that profess to know far more than they do (Oregon least even provide real support for their opinions). From the many that do rigorously examine these cars and provide meaningful feedback, it's sad to such such commentary...

Relax. Car prices are not fact just an opinion and the poster you referred to has his opinion. I'm not sure what it is but it doesn't matter.

If I could afford one of these cars I'd buy one a heart beat and enjoy the heck out of it and hold on to it like you wouldn't believe.

I strongly suspect the prices of these cars will continue to climb though frankly I wouldn't care. As long as I enjoyed the car, that's all that would matter to me.

Prices -- climb or fall. It's not the point. It's about the car itself and how it is different or the similar to other cars with some actual back-up (sorry for being difficult)? I drive the car more than I write comments here. Let's hear from those who have real experience rather than those with trite sound bites because of a recent crash. I do love almost all super cars and I own a CGT for reasons that I can support (good or bad). So if someone has an in-depth familiarity with a F40, F50, F1 and a CGT, then let them speak. All ears. I know my opinion. But if not, then please don't bother us with your supposed learned-ness or false sophistication. It's embarrassing to real folks...

Directing my comments much less at redleg321 (who. I meant nothing personal by), but to some commentators here who have no real experience with any real analog supercars, yet feel they must state their "theoretical" opinion about all the "great and good." Maybe it's a form of vicariously living though other persons' cars (got it). But lets just please hear from folks that actually own a high end sports car -- no problems with the F40, F50 or certainly the F1 -- for real commentary. Cheers, Steve

You certainly directed one of your posts at me, commenting that I have a soviet hat and ignorantly speculating what I've driven. I'm assuming you're not stupid enough to believe that but if you are, my avatar isn't actually a picture of me. Just do a google image search, if you know how.

As Marcster pointed out, you're taking this thread way too seriously.

I think you're off by at least an order of magnitude.

The top 2% only earn $250k/yr.

Maybe 5 years ago, but at $SPX ~1800 (and other economic measures) I don't think that figure is accurate. Also it's important to look at wealth, not just reported income.

I'll accept your correction, though.

Maybe in atherton or Los altos hills! Ave income in bay is about 100k and top 1% income earners is about 550k income annually. La metro that is about 450k. Nationally top 1% is under 400k annually.

Wow. That sucks.

Do they make Super Sports in CGT sizes?

Yes, N-rated Super Sports now available for the CGT. Just had them fitted to my car but will have to wait for better weather to try them out. Looking forward to that day because by all accounts they are a big improvement.

Cheers
