The way your car is used it makes sense for you to have a true exotic. Tow it of flatbed it for service and drive your pickup while your toy is being fixed or serviced. but for me to need a new clutch or slave cylinder in Deadwood SD I'd have to buy a pickup, rent a trailer and tow it to CA or OH for service. I can get my POS vette serviced where ever I am and that's comforting for an old man.

Thats what a domestic truck is for

Im spending more on the Diablo for clutch work etc this month than my yearly mortgage runs, and i could not care less.
It aint no thang, i knew about all these expences before i bought the car.

I look at it this way, it still cheaper than any kid, any wife, all the vacations, clothes, jewerly etc it take to keep one happy etc.

A few K a year or several k every several years is just a minor blip on the radar.
Shit a truck and trailer solves any service issues, just trailed mine to ohio. No biggie, if not a flatbed.

If taking care of a car is hard for you guys, you really need some real challenges and adversity in your lives.

Paddles are for nancys, dual clutch is for a special form of nancy

The only saving grace lamborghini had with egear was the hard shifts....or in a superleggera, the violent shifts

I just go out and crank the NSX about once a month and let it run. Come Spring I just fill'er up with some fresh gas and go. Has worked fine for me over the years. My garage that I keep the NSX in in the winter is not powered.

The Porsche, Vette and Mustang are all at the shop, so they are getting cranked and moved regularly.

Eeek, take it out once a month for 20m and get it up to temp and redline!

Bang for the buck was great when the z06 was for 100k you can get far cooler, rarer, more special exotic cars for that money....and much nicer.

Who would really take a new vette over say a used Gallardo? Or Diablo? Or 512tr? I can think of alot cooler cars for the money.

When new vette prices approach the truly special and amzing cars in price, that i think is the true no brainer......then again im sure the monthly payment crowd like the rates on a new vette and warrenty vs rate on 10= year old car and maintaince cost :/

Its a shame its so pretty and of no use to me
Seeing the Aventadors in person in San Francisco was pretty cool, but same story

The 458 front is the ugliest thing ive ever seen.

Like the aventador i lke this, but alas....paddles.

Im sure the interior too is way too busy and overloaded with nonsense
I just want carbon fiber, ac, and a radio, nothing else.
