10. I can't believe that we have a DUer living that close to Bob Jones "University" The stench

of their "philosophy" must really bother him.

7. I saw a Gallardo Spyder parked around the corner...painted a hideous bright orange

ugly ugly car if you ask me (not a fan of Giugiaro's styling). For the money I'd have an Aston, which is a bit less "HEY LOOK AT ME". Lamborghinis tend to be owned by ostentatious wankers in my experience.

9. Get yourself a great old classic car the kind that is of timeless beauty and never goes out of style

and that you never have to trade in on a new one. A Jaguar Mark II 3.8 for example. If someone gave me a new Lambo I'd sell it and buy one of these and have enough left over to buy several more great old cars.

12. I just saw a Lambo on the freeway the other day ....

I would see these when I lived in Los Angeles. Not in the D.C. area, where I live now. High-end cars are rare here.

Neon green convertible, I have no idea the specific model. My wife said "It looks squashed."

25 years ago, I saw my first, it belonged to Wilt Chamberlin, he had his own parking spot at an upscale seafood place on the PCH. The driver's contour seat had been pulled from the vehicle, replaced with old floral sofa cushions. I assume Wilt was too big to fit the seats that came with the car.
