  1. amazing how supercars used to cost 19 grand.
    It just goes to show how ridiculous inflation has become. But it also shows how much extra shit has to be engineered into cars to pass regulations.
     
  2. actually, relative to the dollar, cars are the cheapest theyve ever been, despite being a billion times more complex and refined.
     
  3. well seeing as I coud afford a pretty good car on my small salary I would agree with this. Dealers are willing to make some pretty good deals on well equipped cars lately. I see a lot more loaded higher trim level cars on the roads than the stripped down appliances.
     
  4. "A Lamborghini P400 Miura costs about $19,000."
