    Thanks, I will look and appreciate the info. I'll need to get some hard core practice in so I don't embarrass myself.

    Andreas not sure where you are viewing on EBAY. Under Ferrari I saw one Black replicar - so so. HEY I HAVE THE RESALE RED PAINT JOB so I should sell mine for more. I also saw a coupe version under replicar section, but that looks like a heap. Hey some one give me $30k and it's gone and on my way to a real one. Anyone wants to get a collection going? Donate the money to me and I'll let Bill take a rocket launcher to it. We can video it and use it a prelude to the upcoming Miami Vice film.

    Your toy at least LOOKS more exotic than a regular Vette. I am not a Vette guy at all. At ALL. I could care less about their performance. Coming from the import scene, I could show you "dollar for dollar" RX7s and Integras that would WASTE a Vette in the 1/4 OR on the track. I could build an RX7 right now for $12k that would DESTROY any Vette under 20K. So Vette's don't impress me ONE bit. They aren't exotic, and they aren't the fastest dollar for dollar car. Don't get it. Please!!

    I was when I was 16 and my mom had one. But that's about it. Don't waste a DIME on that Vette you are looking at. You either are going to get a Ferrari or Pantera or you are NOT. Buying another Vette isn't getting you any closer. Especially if you are buying it and KEEPING your toy. I don't get it. You would be spending maybe $20k or so on a car that isn't getting you any closer to your "dream". Take your car and sell it. Take that $20k you would be spending on the '97. You would be within a few thousand at MOST of getting into a Pantera. Not a mint condition one, but a nice one nonetheless.

    I don't get it.....

    Its because your a Cheesehead little man! FIBs are superior in thought and action, plain and simple. Don't show up here cause there will be a rumble and the streets will run gold with Old Milwaukee. The walls of defense have been set, we call them I-pass. But anyway, I look forward to seeing you and hopefully your wonderful car over the weekend, you are a class act.

    Never heard of this place, but the car definitely looks as if its in need of a Tifosi12 F1/Novitec spin off...

    I don't care what Rick gets, he is a nice guy who encourages lots of people by his friendly manner. Rick, did you ever wind up finding the little daughter some wheels? Judging from her potential car you told me about previously, Im sure that makes a dent into your own toy fund.

    Have a fun and safe weekend everyone,

    Thank you for your concern, my friend. But as of last October, I happily rejoined the ranks of singleness once again.....:)

    Hey, cool little Go Kart you found there, Andreas. I will have to check it out.

    Rick...Keep the Daytona. And don't forget about the F.O.C.....you promised! And I took your word on it.

    I kind of agree with everyone....

    Keep your car. It is BETTER than a 97 Vette IMO.

    But, when the time comes that you can get into a Pantera and need the cash, sell that car QUICK and enjoy that Detomaso!!!

    Davey,

    It looks like Sunday is the day based on your voicemail. Nice. Rotten FIB!!

    I will have to see when we are going down Saturday.... My boss is going and said he wants to go out for dinner first (a business expense, right??!!). So that puts our 5 P.M. arrival closer to 7, I would think. I am thinking 6 P.M. dinner and then 7 P.M. show. Which has us realistically leaving at 10-11 and me home after stopping through Milwaukee sometime around 2-3 A.M.

    Hey, I wouldn't take a rocket launcher to it!! That car has value. And that value could go a long way towards getting a Pantera!!

    Sorry, man, but it will have to be you, Skip. I'm not getting married anymore......Just gonna stick to dating once in awhile. Hopefully, I can FINALLY get some Pain relief soon with some more Surgery. Then, start up this business venture that keeps getting put on hold. And won't have time to do nothing but work. Spend lots of quality time with me little kiddies. Drive my Ferrari. Travel. And date once in awhile. Thats my plan, man!...:)
