"Worse than expected?" Really? Who's the guy who expected any better. This is exactly what I expected.

Depends on who you talk to. The Lambo dealers tell me they are doing fine, then I see a decent Gallardo go through auction and sell in the 70K range.

It could be worse. They could be in Real Estate like me. Down 45% is a lot better than down by 95%!
