      Hello, and welcome to...

      Yes. When one fake F40 owner is pwned by the collective TCL detective hivemind, it appears a real, live F40 owner hath emerged from our midst.

      I don't get what's going on in here. Did OP get accused of trolling or something? Need some background

      Yes it could be.

      Not very likely though.

Just the stock brake pads are really noisy around town but obviously they quiet down on the back roads and canyons.
      simple the wheels were made by oz and comisened by Enkei as at that time only a few companies actually have the ability to make magnesium wheels

      Those wheels are a nice get. Now can you get the sweet enclosed headlights from the LM setup too? BTW the pic of an F40 in a cluttered garage with a washing machine and refrigerator in the background is farking classic.

      A few months back there was a user named "InternetMeme" who claimed to be an uber-rich bond trader or something like that, who was in the market for an F40. Things happened. Details were research...InternetMeme was found to be fake.

      Sherpa23F comes along and posts a bagel on an F40 at TCL's request. ATL_Av8r holds out hope that this one is legit. So far it's looking good.

      Hi Dave. My coupe has a long way to go before it's as good as yours. Enjoying the journey, though.

      Not only have you proven that you own the F40, you've also proven you live in one of those high rises with integrated apartment garage space? Going up!

      They only catch fire if you subscribe to Jalopnik. Lucky for me...

      Not carpet, just a rug on rubber rug mat. Rubber mat is bigger than the rug by a little.
