1/10th the price 10 times the fun

In las Vegas, its common to see supercars with regularity.
Tons and tons of exotic car rentals in town. This is not a rental. Belongs to the guy that owns a few of the wedding chapels in town.


I love super cars, so cool to hear them roar but, every time I pass one on the Strip, or freeway, all I can think is.... I bet I'm having more fun than that guy.

I've never driven a Super Car so I can't say what the fun factor is. I have driven Porsche, Corvette, Mustang GT, Camaro SS, 370Z, Audi Quattro, and I agree that motorcycles are more fun.

Maybe, but NOTHING says "I'm RICHER than YOU!" better than a Ferrari or Lambo....

I know that's the stereotype but I haven't found it to be true. I see and talk with the owners at Cars and Coffee all the time. 1 in 100 maybe but most are just "car guys" that have expendable income.

When you see a Ferrari driving below the speed limit you know that is why they bought it.

More fun to go fast in a slow car then slow in a fast car.

Not the same fun as a Motorcycle but a different kind of fun. Still fun anyway.

I have test driven every two seater below $50,000 new or used that i could get my hands on and the Miata kept bubbling to the top for fun and engaging drive. Some cars are just too capable for public roads. Which equates to boring if you are not willing to double the speed limit.

I will have a Miata when my two wheel days are behind me or are at least when I can only have small light bikes.

I had a Pontiac Solstice for a few years and it was a fun and engaging car, but it suffered from parts bin engineering.
