Make profit on the car sale then have continuing income from interest. Chrysler finance might also finance ADM? Lose lose lose for the buyer in that case though.

So if you had millions in the bank you wouldn't buy one? If you had 10k in the bank I get it. Like I said before it's all about what you can afford to buy. Money doesn't bring me happiness, it is what I buy with it that does:)

In the ADM price range there's quite a few super cars that is far superior in handling, comfort and just as fast.

I’d pay cash I had millions in bank. If I had 10k, I’d buy used. Paying that much interest seems nuts, to me. I’m not Dave Ramsey thrifty, but not too far from it. ;)

Well of coarse you would. My comment was on if you had the money not how you were paying for it

I have the money for one. Even offered a dealership cash. He insisted on a 20k ADM minimum. My money is still in the bank.

Then you have another to take care of. They soon start feeling like kids, always needing attention.

Yup

It got me looking at used GT3s and Turbo 911s.
Just a way different class of car once you get close to 200k.

My D170 spec was about 110-115k. I'd have one if I could have got one for that. But my dealer where I got my 18 didn't get shit for last call or even 22 JBs.

'19 Hellcat Redeye
In 0 DA with tires 10.7 is where at least a Hellcat should be. 100 more HP for an SS 10.3ish. There will be other factors like weight (my TAXI is nearly 4700 where some Challengers removing seats can be in the 4300 range)

.
I feel like in those conditions a stock redeye is at least a 10.2 car. I mean I've done 10.8 at a mile high! What was Simon running with the now @Moored performance redeye back in the day? 10.0?

You forgot stupid. Hardcore stupid. Like on an order of magnitudes level. Sure, it's your money, do whatever you want with it, my opinion of doing something like that is the epitome of stupidity.

True but there's a wrinkle, and one I came across a lot after Go Man Go was stolen. A LOT of these cars are molested. I don't mind correctly done modifications, but cars I was seeing had stuff that just looked wrong had been through multiple owners and had less than 10K miles etc. Really eye opening.

Here's one example. See if you can tell me what's up: https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicle/704884319?city=Murfreesboro&extColorSimple=ORANGE&listingType=NEW&listingType=USED&makeCode=DODGE&modelCode=CHALLENGER&newSearch=false&referrer=/cars-for-sale/orange/dodge/challenger/srt-hellcat-redeye/murfreesboro-tn?isNewSearch=false&listingTypes=NEW%2CUSED&searchRadius=0&zip=37127&searchRadius=0&state=TN&trimCode=CHALLENGER|SRT Hellcat Redeye&zip=37127&clickType=listing

This is one I looked at back in September....still on the market apparently.

I wouldn't buy a Redeye. I could get a Hellcat way cheaper. But not only that I could buy an R/T or Scat Pack. For what the cars have gotten to in price be further off to buy one used. I just look at it like I did in the mid 80s looking at 15-20 year old cars. Now the used cars wouldn't be much more then 10 years old at the most. I would be full in for a rebuilt title if the car and price were right. My cars will be modified and driven daily and not having deep pockets it is what I can afford to buy
