I suppose I am not so shocked by the amount but the glee in which he states it. I forget there are people out there that actually enjoy their hobby/sport enough to spend money on it.
Damn Ramstang...hadn't seen that one yet.
I had a friend that took his car down there. He told me that was the 2nd lambo on its 2nd engine.
The first lambo cought fire. Then he went to that one and blew the engine. He replaced it Saturday night and that happened Sunday.
