Also remember, these arent a car just ANYONE can go and buy. A drug tycoon decides he wants a Ferrari Enzo (imagine this is before they are out). He contacts Ferrari, they do some research on him, and find out he sells a lot of drugs. Not getting one from us. So, Johnny Business gets ahold of one, and our drug buddy wants it, driving up demand, and the price.

I think we should drill alaska.

"and the space shuttle echo tests on oil fields showed we haven't even scratched the beginning of using a single percent of all the oil on this planet..."

WHAT??? I just finished up a 26 page paper on why we should switch to biodiesel because we will run out of oil discovery by 2050, as well as some other reasons (economic, environmental). I never heard anything about less then 1%. Could yo pease send me where you heard that.

Oh, and i LOVE vettes. I have a '92 6-speed conv. my dad got an '03 50';th anniversary. the gt40 looks awesome, its 1.5x the size of the original but has the same lines. and about 1/5th the price of a 60's model.

Am I the only one who has to read LPA2106's posts three or four times to figure out everything that is being said?

Why not do something different? Every Tom, Dick & Harry (and mid-life crisis man) will be driving a C6...

Awesome car, be prepared for price gouging though.
