im a big fan of gi joe. but i also am a huge fan of super exotic sports cars such as ferrari, lambo, etc. i love toys of all kinds. i do collect gi joes, transformers, he man, voltron, etc. but i do love expensive 200k to 300k toys as well. ive been to florida many times and i see those kind of cars go by. it gives me a instant rush. ive visited many dealers in florida endless times. so after all the long hard work. im now ready to buy my first lamborghini. i cant wait to get my first drive in it. i have it on preorder so it should be here in about 6 to 8 months. ive got a pretty good deal on it. the price tag is 280k. so i did save over 40k on the deal. just the sound of these cars can make people death. does anyone else here have a passion for high end automobiles? or is it just me?

Italian bikes for me. Ducati, MV Agusta, Benelli, Moto Guzzi, etc…
That's where most of my money goes!!
Getting the new Duc 848 in Sept. My dream is to own the Desmosedici RR - Only 400 made each year and cost over 74K. Like some Ferrari’s and Lambos, you must be an owner of previous models just to get in line for orders.

Here is mine! It's a beut!!! 1972 Fiat 124 Sport.... Yeah, My Italian ride... Got it from Dad...
I have only liked one Italian car in my life and it's the Ferrari 355, but I would take a Nissan Skyline or a Toyota Supra any day over any thing from Europe.
I have a friend that worked as a high end stereo installer in Seattle. He said that all the Lambo's and Ferrari's are low quality under the skin...
If I was going to spend that much, I would build a R-34 Skyline that would kill a Pasta rocket and thats not hard to do. Buddy's Integra can take down a Galardo, his car has over 600 HP....
But I'm job less at the moment so that would be hard... Wanna pay my car insurance for me?

Congrats for your new car. I love exotic cars also, but I'm not getting paid as CEO level so I stuck with my 10 year old Honda.

yes its a lamborghini murcielago roadster. lambos are very high quality except for the super high repair cost, oilchanges etc. just a clutch will run around 10k to 30k depending on what needs to be done. as for racing and jacking up hondas, toyotas etc. i been there did that already when i was in my twenties. now im 34 so i just want some fun and exotic to drive. im not in the racing thing anymore. thats for the youger guys to do now. i did finally go to that exotic car place in florida that just opened. all i can say is WOW! aside form the car show inside anyone whos a fan go there in orlando florida next to the mall of milliena. the club inside will be 100k to join if you want to be part of it. i decline. its just to little members to join. they only had 20 so far. some of my money, i took huge gambles to make. but it turn out ok so far. its kind of funny. but im one of the suppliers for the big bad toys store, a day trader, and own my own shipping company. but hey work hard and play harder. life is too short. i lost a few family members early in my life and it shows how short of a time we are here. so enjoy everyday as much as you can. if its gi joes, or anything you love go for it.

The best I can afford right now on my Physician Assistant income is my 2007 Shelby GT500.
I have an offer where the clinic/hospital I work for will cover tuition for med school. Gotta take the MCAT first. I doubt I'd ever move up to exotics like that even if I had the cash. Like Troynos, I'd buy some old Detroit muscle cars like 60s Shelby Mustangs, Shelby Cobra, Boss 429 Mustangs, Plymouth Barracudas and Road Runners, Pontiac GTO, etc.
