I should be more specific, sorry for that. What type of job/income do you have that allows for you to own such a car?

Sorry, I don't believe that would be any of your business. I can safely say, we are not drug dealers! Hard work pays off! To ask someone's income is rude.

Its not a rude question, really. If you dont want to answer it, just say so, no need to tell someone theyre rude.

And who really cares anyways? When I drove a 360 Spider around, people would always ask how much it cost, etc. If you own a car like that, expect those kinds of questions. And lots of em! People are genuinely curious, thats all.

Not since I had it rebuilt. Before the rebuild it went 12.2 @ 108. It's much stronger now I'd say mid to low 11's.

I'll keep that in mind Alice! Hmmm.. that might be fun in the flight deck of a Boeing 767 or a 777... and if something happens, I'm sure investigators will be listening to the recording from the Cockpit Voice Recorder!
