    And If my aunt had a $&@" she be my uncle.

    Seriously. Your point is a car built for a road course is faster in a road race than than a car built for the drag strip. Whoopdeedo.

    The Cobra R didn't hold value because it wasn't anything special, meaning it still wasn't the best at its own game. Vipers, Vettes, Porsche, were still competing and beating the Cobra R. Hell the the G35 was pulling .90g on the skid pad in 2003.

    The Demon is special..and well worth the $85k. It's the best at its own game and a one of a kind product.

    It's completely disrespectful to come to this thread and call it a POS. This gentleman is proud to be a new owner and should be. I would love to own it.

    If you only knew how many folks held their tongue when they seen the Emotiva amps in your equipment rack. You should offer the same level of respect.

    Preach it, Brother J!

    A very fast car but still a Dodge! I am not young to race or press the medal so I'll pass. Don't think I can afford one either. But love to drive the plain old Challenger and they are fun cars to drive. That's for sure!
    Trying out Different Audio Cables is a Religious Affair. You don't discuss it with anyone. :redface::biggrin:
  • @marcpamjoce For the record I liked my Emotiva Xpa1 amps and I am not discrediting your equipment, just sayin.
    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    Well, everyone has an opinion on something. The key is how you express it. Based on my wants and salary, $85K for a car is not in my zone. On the other hand, what I have spent on stereo and HT gear will offend much more people than buying an expensive car. To each their own. But when I win Powerball tonight then lookout. I want it all. :)

  • A little off-topic, perhaps, but I was not aware that Mildred Burns was the hair stylist for The Roy Rogers Show.
    I wonder if she included "Trigger" as part of her duties.
    I would imagine that "Bullet" was left to his own devices, being a "Wonder Dog" and all.

    John's Demon is a Bullet, but it ain't no dog.

    Your correct....to each his own. My biggest issue with ever owning a super nice car like this is it just takes one jackass to ding your door or one rock to fly off the interstate because the Georgia Highway employees are too lazy to clean up debris and....you're like what the heck!?! Where with gear you can keep it in a controlled environment and the wear and tear is a lot less.

  • I think the only domestic that has real investment potential are the Ford GT's. For all recent cars, Porsche 918, le Ferrari, and McLarin P1 are going to make some rich people even richer. Zonda and Koenigsegg make/made some special cars too but I don't thing anyone down the road is going to get into a pissing match to buy one. Like the Koenigsegg like Mayweather has only pulled in around $140k in a recent no reserve auction and there were only two of that model ever made. Guy that sold it probably committed suicide when it sold for VW bus money.

    On the bright side, FCA's clearly improved the lifespan of their engines! ;)

    Not a rod knock, that's top end/valve train noise.

  • I've had/have late model Dodge Magnum and Hemi trucks and have always thought they have too much valve train noise. Definitely no rod knock or detonation noises. Just valve train.

  • September BBC Top Gear magazine has a pretty decent write up after abusing one as much as they could. Mentioned one being hot lapped for 5500 trips with zero issues. Using it for what it's built for I feel makes a difference. I once built a kid a 2003 Cobra that did 520hp to the ground that he grenaded trying to top out over 200 mph one night on the George Bush toll road. Zero problems with it on the strip or open track. These aren't Ferrari 812's or McLaren 570 GT's built for that kind of speed.

    Back in late 83 I bought the new 84 Vette and constantly worried about that. I'd park way out in the parking lot usually next to a light poll to eliminate anyone from parking on that side. To this day I still park away from everyone and walk. No one has any respect for other people's cars. I'll never forget around that same time one of my employees bought his first brand new car, a 6 cylinder Firebird that looked like a Trans Am. He was so proud of that car. He always parked behind the shop like I did to stay away from a-holes. One day on his day off he stopped by the shop for a minute for something and parked in front. A few minutes later a station wagon full of people pulled up next to his car. As he went running out the door to try to save his car, all four station wagon side doors flew open like a bomb went off inside it putting two crease dents with paint scrapes in the side of his car. He bitched but never got a dime from the driver. He was truly heart broken. Couple months later I paid to have it repaired for him for a Christmas bonus. All's good again so I thought. Turns out the bass **** had been stealing from me the entire time he worked for me.
