I have an Audi RS6. I've only ever seen another one twice. They need to bring the 2009 RS6 to the US. The RS4 just doesn't do it for me. The RS6 is the only car I've purchased that was not a BMW in my whole life ;-)

I think Pontiac required the buyer to have a full mullet just to get on the list to buy one new.

Depends on your definition of rare. A chevy Vega is rare but I doubt anyone would be proud of ownership (unless it were a Cosworth Vega). On the otherhand, there are hundreds of thousands of '65 - '67 Mustangs out there that most owners are very proud of even though they are not rare (unless it is a Shelby Mustang).

True my Pontiac is not like high dollar rare but just you probably never saw one rare and yes it has power folding headrests. Btw I saw a guy with a mullet driving a 3 series so watch what you say.

I consider my CLS55 rare. It is the first year for the body style. The only year they came supercharged. And maybe the lowest mileage CLS right now?

And my Schwinn Stingray's

The blue one is all original - even original rust.
The green one I built and have owned since I was 12-13

Dad has a 1929 Peerless Model 661, it's a completely restored 4 door, just waiting for the interior to be completed. I guess one day I'll be storing it in my garage. This thing has so much legroom that you can sit in the back seat, extend your legs straight forward and STILL not touch the driver's seat. Sorry, no pics, it's in Maryland and I'm in Texas.

If you must Gentlemen,

The Gallardo Spyder has 520hp from the factory..I have added via Breathless Performance in Dania Florida, a Electronically controlled turbo at the exhaust and tuned the valve timing to gain the other 175- 200 plus hp. However, rear wheel and engine torque vary through a standard dyno test, I would be willing to race anyone in the south florida area on request..lol Lets just say its pretty fast..

As far as the housing market..It does suck and the car did cost about the same as one of the houses across the street even in a bad market..Naples doing a little worse.. no work or industry over there. Great area if your 70.
