Danny, my best buddy Farms over 4,500 acres, has a 400,000 chicken egg farm he owns. He owns five semis, two newer 3/4 ton diesel pickups, one newer, top model Jeep Grand Cherokee, it has some word denoting the top model that lights up in the door sills, a 2020 model $50,000 Jeep with over $15,000 in aftermarket extras, a small black two seater Mercedes with convertible hard top, a 1978 Z-28 with a 496 cubic inch big block, turbo 400 and 12 bolt and the Viper. I think he can afford it... He also pushes over 100 lots of snow in the winter, play the market, his Jeeps liscense plate is "BUY PUTS" and the Vipers plate was bought by his wife and is "BD BABY" and yes, it is her name for him and means what you think. He also has three large gun safes and over $100,000 in his master bathroom, plus two cabins in the Smokies, 14 acres in the Smokies he is planning on developing into a camp grounds, a Condominium beach side on Daytona Beach and a time share at Disney World, and no, he isn't strapped at all.

Here's our car, it's a LOT of fun!  Only 550 HP out of a 5 liter supercharged engine.  The interior is incredible.  It has the optional refrigerator, back seat videos in the headrests, and a huge sunroof.  It is fun to be at a stoplight beside some "boy racer", and smoke him on the green.

Like the Range Rover Sport Supercharged, the Autobiography Limited Edition -- debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show -- is refreshed for 2010. That means much more powerful engines and tweaked styling.

That is a very nice looking C3.  Too bad about the LT-1, but I agree with the owner, that ship sailed long before his involvement.

I like everything except the spoiler on the back. I do wonder about the wheel clearance when you hit a bump.

No Airplanes. Two Bus Campers, a large pontoon, three jet skis, 800 Polaris Ranger, 900 Polaris Ranger, 1,000 Polaris RZR 4 seater with high lift kit, bigger rims and tires, 9 speaker stereo, metal roof cover, GPS, backing camera, turn signals, headlights, three snorkel's, Toys and an arm candy wife that is real smart. Maybe I am getting old, but I like his master bathroom about as much as anything and the only thing I envy is his wife.  :D

This car is the successor to the last McLaren F1...That previous F1 was also designed by Gordon Murray... I'm just curious to know what you all think about it and Its place in our new bigger, heavier more powerful sports cars of today...?? The horsepower war at the moment is quite ridiculous in my opinion... Dodge is selling 800hp cars to the public..Great for drag racing, highway pulls, but I live in the mountains.. I'd rather drive a car with half the horsepower and 1/3 the weight... Is that all people are doing now, spending $25, 35, $45,000 on engines to do highway pulls for 20 seconds. Nobody knows how to drive all these new super horsepower cars if the computer attached to the engine wasn't cutting power and cradling its "driver".... I'm a bit sick of all the performance numbers of today... Every new sports car coming out is heavier than the last, bigger, but faster.... I think we are going in the wrong direction... We are losing sight of the involvement aspect of our new sports cars... And by their new designs we are solely focused on bigger numbers than the next manufacturer, not driver experience.... Now obviously they are making them "better" more comfortable, faster and easier to drive, but I think its actually taking emotion away from the way the car treats YOU, the feedback, the relationship... They don't kiss like they used to, ya'know what I mean.. And they should be kissing better then ever, like an ornery octopus that's been in prison for a stint.. You should feel and completely understand how the car moves and reacts... But they conceal their true identity under the computers control... like an escort, all dressed up to Really party, but all you get is a little peck on the lips with little emotion.. And if you try to really touch her, she'll rip your arm off and beat you to death with it...   Even the new Porsche 911's are putting on pounds, something like 3500lbs 1600kg, and Electronic controlled EVERYTHING, steering, brakes, throttle... We as drivers are being replaced by what the computer thinks we should be doing, not what we are actually inputting into the cars controls....... This new T.50 wasn't the look I was expecting, but.... The more I hear about the T.50, it's focus is 100% driver enjoyment... No other car is being designed in the same way this one was.... Even G.Murray in the video says nothing can compete because all the rest of the manufacturers design by committee, and you'll never get a focused drivers car with all the regulations from each branch of design inputing their ideas and jumbling up the final product. The 663hp cosworth v12 that revs to 12,100 has its carbon intake mounted directly over the drivers head in the cars carbon roof.... It is fast becoming the best sports car made in my eyes... Get the pool ready, this octopus is ready to party... 🐙
