    Replicars are like men in drag; it isn't the real thing, and you aren't fooling anyone.

    Some replicas are nice though, but many are just crap.
    But nothing is as low as this yellow cavalier I saw with corvette flags on the back and a Ferrari crest up front.

    Wrong, no replica is nice. I'd rather have a real Pinto than a fake Murci..

    replicas and the people who drive them are pathetic with a capital 'p'.

    the companies that make them should be forcibly shut down.

    Really? Tell that to all the Cobra replica drivers out there when they pass your ass. What about the awesome CAV GT40 replicas? The Beck 550 Porsche Spyder? Please, you people don't need to be snobs about it. If you don't like replicas, fine, don't carry on and on about how everyone sucks for driving something they love. Threads of this such are trite.

    yes, cav and beck should be put out of business, just like oklies, guci, folex, and louis vutton.

    i'll admit it's not exactly the same, ford isn't selling gt40's and doesn't lose any money with cav ripping them off (until the ford gt's come out i guess..) and porsche certinly isn't making any more 550 spyders, so it's not stealing from them like say, piracy is stealing from the music and movie industry...

    but it is stealing from the people who own real gt40's, who own real cobras, who own real porsche 550's...it makes them superficially (which is often official enough) less special. when it comes to high end cars mr ghostrider, uniqueness and exclusivity are definitely factors in a lot of people's minds. snobbery or not, i don't think it's right make a living diminishing that.

    That's pretty sad that your enjoyment of a car hinges on what somebody else drives.
