I must add that the Carrera GT is the best sounding car I have ever heard. It sounds like an F1 when it gets on it. Not just the whine, like a motorcycle, but that deepness in the whine that kinda blows you over.

When I meet with Santa in a few weeks...I am going to bring these pictures...so he knows exactly what I want! Come to think of it, I may need a little help from the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

Incredible, would love to have a GT. Flew in a G4 last yr, no slowtations for me, also cabin room is a problem; if same size cabin rm would rather go in Lear 45 or 60. Oh well, need to find that wishing star!

I have to say the Ferrari does it for me big time.

Perhaps I will need to stock one of those soon?

At Mosport I saw a F430 and a 360 parked side by side, and I couldn't believe how awful the F430 makes the 360 look. Just bland and dated by comparison. The F430 is also not very photogenic - it looks so much better in person than in pictures.

It is officially my dream car amongst new vehicles. The 288 GTO is still my favorite car of all time

I still like 360's, but I agree the 430 is very polished and astounding in person.

That is a gorgeous P51. I would take that over a 430 any day. I have seen that airplane at many airshows...who owns it?

Jack Roush, the racing guru.
I also put my hands on a fully restored $2 million F4u Corsair up in Indiana, that was the shinest plane I had ever seen. I didn't really put my hands on it.
