      Just wanted know as it's hard to get around those little cuuunts on the track. Can get them on the straight, but usually 2 metres behind them all the way round the track.

      $100 you could'nt get past me after 3 laps

      Put it this way, if you had 'invested' in an Aston Martin Lagonda in the '80s for $250,000, or whatever they cost back then you would have a ropey old car worth $50,000 now if you were lucky.

      I'm a little late, however:
      Carsales: 1981 ASTON MARTIN LAGONDA Series 2 Lagonda
      Spot-on pricewise..

      hahaha, that's why i wanted to know what times they are getting on average, because if an Exige can do 1:56 or better, on street tyres, in the hands of a crap driver, then i think they would be a good car to look at, as my car won't go faster than that.

      The biggest problem with the GTHO is that it is an Australian only price. No other international collector would buy one. I still don't understand how the prices of these cars were driven up so high in the first place!

      fyi....there is nice Phase III on the auction block next month.

      While being a fan of the car, I too am amazed at the price.
      I put alot of it down to the baby boomers.......there are many of them cashed up now who want to own their dream car of their youth and there isn't that many examples.
      Gotta love supply and demand forces.

      $700K ... /me spits phucking lunch all over the place. Why?! I understand it is a classic car, but three quarters of a million phucking dollars. Farkn hell you could almost buy and import a Carrera GT for that kind of money. FFS!

      I think its a medical condition called Fat head syndrome.. seriously look at all the owners, they all have fat round bulbous heads
      I think its like a virus infecting their brains to increase in size and compel them to purchase pieces of sh*t for intense amounts of money.

      It's the human compulsion...
      I reckon we're headed towards global recession.
      Look at the prices of cars in the late eighties - it's the same climate as now. Back then William St had the Aston dealer and all the rest, Mount st had The Toyshop.....people were buying The Dupont Registry and shiiit - the same thing happening now, William St is packed with luxo dealerships, Bentley just moved in, Lambo has/will be moving in, back into the high-rent commercial strips.
      The problem is all the wealth is borrowed/leased/financed to a huge degree, and people are biting off more than they can chew...
      All their super funds have been directed into the markets each week,
      thus over-valuing stocks. Now let's see what happens..
      It's all faux!!!

      Graham Hill's helmet in Oxford Rowing Club colours also gives a few clues. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I'm guessing Nick will be able to withstand any crash in car prices.

      Try London Rowing Club, not Oxford.

      James,
      Have you been running a hedge fund from the back office?
      It's 3pm, the market is down 5.8% and quote in "free fall"
      What will Wayne do first call his broker, or cancel the BMW order?

      Its got more to drop though. Watch US tonight and prepare for, as my broker called it this morning, "A blood bath".
      To the above, I think Wayne will setup a conference call to see what can be done.

      Surely he will start a poll before he does anyting else as he values our opinion above and beyond anyting else...

      It was the wildly irresponsible decadence of placing an order for a white bmw with beige & wood interior that finally brought the markets down.
      If only he had ordered silver with black leather...
