idk why but i just never really cared for those. id rather have an old muscle car and a ton of extra money for what one of those cost. nevertheless its still cool to see high-end cars like that rolls royce in person.

A Chrysler 300?! The 300 is blinged out wannabe gangsta wagon. To compare it to a Rolls is unbelievable

:P

Don't blame me blame Chrysler or better yet Mercedes because I believe it was their engineers that came up with the design when the partnership was still there.

Rollers and Bentleys have always been powerful cars, HJ.

ThunderbirdJunkie's ultimate dream car is a mid/late 90s Continental R (where'd the drool smiley go?)
6.75L turbocharged pushrod V8...what's not to love?

i do see what he means about the Chrysler look, if you take a quick glance..

i dont think ive ever seen one of those in the UK, though if i lived in London or some huge city..

Porsche are quite common over here, its not unusual to see 2 or 3 on the short drive home..

i hate those 300's.  there's one i see every now and then around my neighborhood.  air bags, 24" rims, lambo doors, suicide lambos on the back doors, 2 tone paint, crazy system.
last time i saw it it was "laying frame" across 3 parking spots in front of the 7 11


i saw about a red dodge viper convertible on my way home from the auto parts store on Tuesday.

thats nothing i see a maybach, rolls, bentley every day or so.

i dont know how they are doing it because where i live the economy is really taking a toll and this is not a rich area.
must be illegal stuff.

i saw a new viper driving in the snow in construction a few months ago, why? i dont know.

Its nice but I see them all the time here in Miami. And if you go to South Beach you see plenty in the span of an hour. Lamborghini, Ferrari, Vipers, Porche, Bugatti, ect. You name I've seen it and snuck a touch here and there lol.

Same here. I used to work in downtown Chicago and saw tons of high-end cars on a daily basis...so many that it was nothing to see them because they were just so common. If it was in a car magazine, I saw it.
