what the....

ok, it looks great but what is it?

looks to me like a 300zx with skin grafts and enzio emblems. heck, it'd be nice if it was nissan (turbo?) guts; at least it would run reliably. and the insurance wouldn't eat you alive.....

i fell in love with the new mini cooper today-parked next to one and all i could do was drool and whimper like a puppy:(

You da man! Very good observation.

Its a F355 Berlinetta Replica Built on a 1990 300ZX Chassis. I believe its a solid legit replica.


This can actually ...one of these days be a reality for me. Im concentrating my efforts on getting a dream car replica. Why? Well, because I can never afford the real thing man.




dig it!

i see the style of houses and think -plano or carollton or farmers branch, texas...makes me a little homesick to see a horizon without a mountain range
man you're on a roll here. you are hella observant. but i guess if youve been around carrolton or the surounding areas you can spot them out in pictures with no problem.

those pics were taken in allen texas... north dallas.

ive been to dallas plenty of times. its nice up there.

yeah but if i can have something that looks like the real deal for 100000 + less than the real deal...and its rare as hell on the roads and makes me happy....than its worth me looking into. actually this only applies to cars...not to puters. a highly priced real mac is not out of my range. an average price ferrari is.

but i hear ya still.

I guess I just don't see the appeal.

I had a used 308 once which I bought to sell, and it was wonderful, fast loud, unreliably built but drunk Italians, and perfect. Sold for more than I paid...yada yada yada...because it was not a car I could afford to own.

Now I just don't see the appeal in buying something that is a obvious fake. It's like people who show off a Fauxlex...

Take that 10k and get a nice 911, an incredibly fun Fiat/Ferrari Dino, a fully restored Triumph TR6, etc. You can buy a lot of car in that price range.

It seems like a shame to drive a Fiero wrapped in bad fiberglass, or a JapanItalian car.

Your an Apple user, so I think you've got the style in ya! Or maybe I just really dislike these things...
