I actually was unaware that you could buy a McLaren (thought they were just built for F-1) until I saw a couple last spring in the parking lot of a coffee shop that I frequent - cue up Xpo's 1% line . . .

Costs less than I thought it would but starting at $135,000 still just a "look at me, I care about the environment" car for some Hollywood tree-hugger types.

A couple years ago I was delivering gravel to a guy and I saw he had a huge garage that was filled with like 50 classic cars. Right up front he had a really cool looking car that I'd never seen before. I asked him what it was and he said "a 1967 Ford GT40, look it up." So later when I had a chance I looked it up and saw that it was worth like $500,000 to $1,000,000. His looked a lot like this one, it was pristine.

I'm not even a "car guy" but that thing was just beautiful.

Lets list what cars we've had.....

1988 jeep Cherokee. 4.0l 2 wheel drive. So much torque I could get the front wheels off the ground.
1988 Trans Am GTA had all the corvette features including digital dash. She caught on fire at a gas station. Long story.
1986 Mustang GT this car was fast. Drive the shit out of it. A lot of fun.
2002 jeep tj loved the rag top.
2010 dodge charger sxt 250hp, very smooth drive on the highway with some peep.

I've had other cars but theses are my favorites.

Has anyone driven a dual clutch transmission? Asking here b/c I never have.....The next car I'm likely to buy is the Acura TLX and it comes with a DCT, it's either that, or a (no thanks) automatic trans that bores the life out of me.
