Think ya got the wrong section...

But yeah, that's pretty fucking stupid.

And damn, reading the VCA board is creepy. First time I've been there in about a year, and it's just so... candyass, somehow.

I saw that and couldnt believe how stupid that was. So what if it has 9200 miles, what a baby. Now he wants another one, the same color and everything, except he says he wants a PERFECT one so it can SIT in the garage. :rolleyes:

While I know most, myself included, don't agree with the reasoning behind Tom's decision, he is a great guy. And in some ways he had a point. He felt his car to loose value when the mileage went over 10,000 miles.

Considering what he got for the car, he was right. As much as he drives his car, he would have never been able to get that kind of money next year when his car has 17,000 miles on it.

felt his car lose value, WTF no offense but hes a tool. first of all a car in general is a pisspoor investment, itll "lose value" as it creeps of the damn showroom floor.

however if all he got the car for was a showpiece (which in my opinion is ridiculous as cars are made to be driven) then more power to him, it is, afterall his money to do with as he pleases.

I agree on point one, DEFINITELY A TOOL, if not a ***. Here's why. The very first "reason" he had as to why it sold well was because he cleaned it after every ride? Dude, I love my car and all but I don't have time to clean it after every fucking drive. And 4 hours every time? If he's not a flamer, at the very least, he may need to find a g/f, or a life. One of those.

Point two, no car is an investment, unless you're planning on sticking around a half century after you buy it, and maybe, if you get lucky, it'll be worth more than you payed for.

Point three, he's still a tool... :dumbass:

but it doesnt make ANY sense...he wants to go buy another one now...where is he going to find a car with lower miles, and in better or as good a shape as his was, for less then he sold his car for??...i doubt he will find it....


TOOL!

I bought my '95 in 2002 and it had 4000 miles on it. Original owner only put 4K miles on it over 7 years.

Two years later my odometer just turned 9500.

If I were looking for an investment opportunity for $60K, the last frickin' place I would look is at a car dealership.

Driving the Viper is worth more than any depreciation that occurs to the vehicle. Who gives a fuck. I just wish I had a chance to drive mine more.
