      Haha, I remember the first thread, and nobody believed him....

      Its nice to see the F40 is actually being driven and appreciated, rather than sitting in some showcase collecting dust.

      You should have bought a GTO.

      "The Sebring is an extraordinary car. Ugly to behold and hateful to drive, it is not cheap, elegant, comfortable, practical, prestigious, clever, economical, luxurious, well designed, well thought out or, if the rental car I drove in America this year is anything to go by, especially well made either." - Jeremy Clarkson

      This is the second or third time the F40 has come up, but still no proof of the Honda Fit. I'm calling bull****.

      I took it to the track once. Just did a few laps to get a feel. I actually have real track purpose stuff (not cars) so driving a street car, even one like this, doesn't feel as fun. That said for brief time I was on the track with it, it was really good. I just don't ever feel like street cars make super great track cars. On twisty back roads, however, this car is the greatest.

In fact, I have only read the frist 5 posts and the last 5 in that thread. One of these days I will find it again and read the whole thing.
      I missed your other thread then. But I was post #2 in the InternetMeme thread (see sig). It's not a bragging point....I just find it funny

      I have to be honest: after finally reading the whole thing, that Internet Meme thread is really disturbing to me. When people were bringing it up in my first thread, I was under the impression that it happened years ago but it was only this summer. I didn't go back and look at his post history but it sounds like some people here talked to him offline? But nobody knows who he is? I will do a little searching on Fchat later tonight when I have time and see if anyone there knows anything about it. Somebody has to know something.

      I already did a search for "curse the gods" and came up empty.

      For what it's worth, the biggest liar that I ever knew was from London or Surrey or something. Made up wild stories about himself and his past and just could never ever say a truthful word. Beyond professional help and maybe the same with this other guy too.

      People talked to him via private message, but never outside of this forum as far as I know.

      I recall an admin saying that the IP address he was signing in from was in the Baltimore, MD area.

      Well, after reading the whole Internet Meme thread last night, I do understand a little bit better why I got all the hate mail. Still, though, if people were that concerned the mods could always check IP's or log in info or things like that to see what's what.

      What you wouldn't glean from that thread was the breadth, consistency, and history of his posts. He'd been posting for over a year. He posted regularly in the OT section. In the purchase threads he posted of expensive leather briefcases, expensive knives, expensive everything. He mentioned his house, and posted a picture. When it came up months later he didn't miss a beat. He posted about his pregant girlfriend, and even matched up the timeline somewhat correctly. In the purchase thread I mentioned picking up a Shun chef knife. Months after he posted about them he chimes in and says "I absolutely love mine." Now, he could've owned them sure. My point is that he was consistent. He had a very thorough back story and kept at it. There were obviously missteps on his part along the way, but they were rare enough that they were drowned out by his story's overall consistency. I think it was Momus who finally outed him by searching the picture of the house he wanted to buy. It was nowhere near the geographic area he was talking about, and it was far above a believable budget for a 27 year old investment banker.

      I can't put a pic up. That's a prototype of a new model from a company I help develop products for. They did just drop the production model at Interbike but there shouldn't be pics on the internet of this one until 2013.

      Well, I honestly don't know much about the high paced investment banking world of NYC and London but I did have to go back and reread the missteps and where Momus outed him because I didn't catch it at first. I guess I'm also not as worldly (Shun chef knife?) to pick up on some of the nuances about it all. But the whole thing is weird. He just stopped posting it looks like. No response, no explanation, no nothing. What was the end game? I don't get it.

      I did send that thread to one of the moderators at Fchat for him to see if he knows anything about it or if he has an idea of who it might be.

      Don't get your panties in a bunch. It was a compliment to the OP. He doesn't really care if his carpet is torn since he owns an F40. That's doing it right
