Quote from site: "US retail price $29,700" :eek:
They had better be some damn good sounding speakers!
And yes, I like to 406 coupe too, but it's not a spot on the Ferrari (http://www.ferrari.com/cgi-bin/fworld.dll/ferrariworld/scripts/gt/production/cars_oggi_image.jsp?section=photos&reference=360_SPIDER_THREEQUARTERRED&listindex=5) :D :D :D

The speakers are Electro Static, they sound amazing, very very clear and very acurate, but not alll that loud :)

if u look at Joey and Rachaels (Friends) appartment they have a pair of them, one next to each bedroom door.

I'm with you on that one duke, I'd love to go up into space....... that said though... I'm sure theres alot of people I know who'd wish that I'd go upto space, and not come back...... maybe they might all donate cash to raise the necessary 20 million!!!

good call on the vette! :D

I used to live down the street from a guy who owned a 1964 coupe...silver....garage kept...beautiful car...

I used to be a big car fanatic when I was younger...but then I kind of got out of it once my first car (Celica) pretty much was dying before my eyes and I got into a Camry...

now things are changing a bit...he he he... :D

Actually two others would be a 67 GT500 Mustang, and the other would have to be a 1989 ZR-1 Corvette. Man that was a bad A$$ vette. There is always a 56 Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing. Don't forget a 69 Camaro.

OK, I need a towel for the drool.......as keyboard shortcircuits.......

Cars are nice, but I'd like a private jet or at least a decent dual engine prop job. Fly somewhere when ever I want. Great way to see the county.

I've taken pilot lessons a few times, but I just don't have the time and money to get a plane right now. My favorite trip was when I was up in Calgary, Alberta and took a Cesna up over the mountains, saw the glaciers, Banff, unbeleivable scenery.

yes, but its 1/24 scale.....what i'd do for a real one. a hardtop daytona cobra just sold here in l.a. for 4 million....it was found in a garage covered with old boxes-used to belong to the eccentric record producer phil specter. they just never come on the market anymore. carrol shelby was going to release a new batch of them with old never-used VIN #'s. that caused a big uproar-don't know what happened there. oh well, what would life be without dreams....:)

But all this asking for luxery items reminded me of this.

Salon was running an article about these girls (usually teens 16-18) who design their own web sites. They were putting pictures of themselves (sometimes scantily clad) and started collecting items from admirers online. So these grown men had the hots for these girls and asked them for pictures (and more?) in exchange for jewlery and other things they asked for.

Some of the pages had stuff like, "I really, really want the new sony walkman CD player. Would someone buy it for me? Pretty pleaz! ;)"

The question Salon asked was, who is exploiting whom??

Pretty crazy stuff.

And if anyone would like that car, just send some pics of yourself to this address: no_way_in_heck@dreamland.com.

OMG this is hysterical, somebody should have told Travis!!!

"I really, really want the new Apple iBook. Would someone buy it for me? Pretty pleaz!"

Hahahaha

Your timing is all of Taft, that little bit could have been really useful a couple weeks ago. Oh, well.:D

Man, that would have been perfect. The really funny thing is that the Salon article came out at about the exact same time as the Travis begging for an iBook incident. I never made the connection then. Doh!!
