    Eric, don't listen to him. You've been spared :)

    Now, the best performance car out there is of course a Caterham 7. Spank Ferraris on track all day long :)

    After that and the Ferraris...you get stuck for time really. And thee list would be long.

    Steve the SCUMBAG dealer called me at 4pm as I was about to leave and go down there, after making an appointment the day before, he 100% knew I was going to have the car, and told me he sold it. Not even for the asking price.

    As I was first in queue he could have told the other guy OK I know you made an offer but I will call you in 2 hours if this guy who called me first yesterday wants it, if not you can have it tonight from me in 2 hours, but no he has no morals and sells it from under me. I would have had it no question. So p1ssed off its not true. Dealers are all the same SCUMBAGS

    Sorry mate but first come first served.Did you put a deposit down to secure the car,if not just accept you were beaten to it.
    The Scumbag dealer is there to earn a living just like everyone else,how many people do you reckon that say "don't sell it,I'll be there tomorrow and will buy it" and then don't turn up.
    I trusted someone like that years ago,never again,to me it's only sold when someone puts a deposit down.
    And car dealers are not all Scumbags.

    That sucks. But unless things are very different in the UK, that's the way it would be in the US. Without a deposit, car salesman are trained to sell it to the acceptable offer in hand versus the serious buyer who hasn't come in yet. Too many of the serious buyers never come in, find some fault, or aren't that serious. There's also the possibility that the car was actually sold by another salesman and it was your salesman's bad job to tell you it was gone. As far as the sales manager is concerned, whichever salesman came in first had the sale.

    There is a nice 964 Celebration for sale down the road from my office at www.autobahn.co.uk

    Why not buy that and start a project on it; or send it to Ruf in Germany and have it done.

    Think of the fun you'd have tweaking the car with new suspension, performance mods, interior mods etc...

    Robert.

    It's often forgotten that Ferraris are heavy Grand Tourers, not lighweight sportscars to which they are mistakenly compared. Fortunately they also have plenty of grunt and good handling, which is always a bonus when slicing cross-continent, for which they were designed.
