Talking RE: New Car

Yep, I already placed my order for one.

Yeah right, just kidding. I heard it is going to go for about $400,000 -- ouch.

Awesome car from Porsche. I wonder if the founder of our company is getting one. He has a stable full of exotic cars. Bentley, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche.....you name it, he has the top model (and two of each in some cases).

... and performance looks rather intense.... 0 - 62 in less then 4 seconds. This class is reserved for a few elite cars (the new Enzo, Lambo, etc.......)

This is what I plan to get when I win the big one!!!!

Now, what color do I want? hmmmmm.....

Cool New Car yet Jorge?

How long have you been Boxsterless now Jorge? When are you getting the new one? Think I asked before, but you never said. You're really driving a Yugo now aren't you? Come on -- admit it!

The truth is out My yugo has been seen down the sunset highway coming home from work.

I will most likely pick up my new car just before spring. The rainy season has arrived in Portland and it would not make sense to take up the space in the garage now This is what I typically do. spring time for driving

You know 18" turbo-twist wheels will look very impressive on that Yago. I have hears, it can do 0-10 in around 5 seconds!

Talking Please post pictures of the Yugo

Please post pictures of the Yugo! Did you get the Sports Package with it or did you get the "S" model?

Yugo with Sports Package = Puma Running Shoes in trunk for those times when the damned thing just won't start.

Yugo S = This is the big engine with 700cc, versus the standard 550cc engine.

Have you done the DE yet at your local Yugo track day?

Yeah, "ruthless" is the word of the day I guess.

Actually, I am very jeolous. After all, we must not forget, our fearless leader/founder is getting a new '03 Boxster!!!

However, I wonder if the Yogo turbo has ceramic brake rotors......... hee hee hee
