Jutes85; '01 Lambo 6.0 VT? I assume you mean the Diablo. That's pretty exotic, I'd say. Only rode in a company car a couple of times several years ago; very cool indeed. Styling-wise I wish they didn't have to reinforce the "federal logs" front and rear, however. Are they as exotic to tinker with on your own, though? Regrads...Jack

I hope to trade the oh so sorty Windstar for a new equally exotic something this spring.

Ah yes the Oakville Ford Plant, I know it well. I pass it many times each year on our visits to YYZ from BUF. You have love that QEW ride

Jutes85: yes, your Diablo is without a doubt in the "top ten"; the styling and proportions are (and will be for a long time) a classic definition of good taste exotic without being too "corny" (to wit: all the strakes on the forced aero elements of some Ferraris and other bogus trendy gee-gaws on a lot of the recent high-ticket sports cars). Very exotic; appearance AND performance. Regards...Jack

I have a 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado Cabriolet, 8.2 Litre V-8 with the coveted (and exceedingly-rare) fuel injection option.

What a beast!

In this day and age, and in a neighborhood crawling with BMWs, Benzes and extra-cost Toyotas (Lexi), it is exotic in its own right.

Well your Eldo is at least a collectable. Last year of the big Cadillac convertibles.

My car is so exotic nobody knows what it is. My poor Mazda 626 looks like every other mid-sized Japanense sedan made in the past 5 years. Plus it is a pretty dark red.

Well I own a Nissan Skyline R34 which is about as exotic as a Nissan gets, but isn't in Lamborghine territory quite! I am actually going to be selling it soon as it is just too fast for London where I live - I will probably go for a Mazda RX8 or a Toyota Celica.

I bought a Porsche 944 for $500 from a neighbor that I'm restoring.

It will look like this.

Ooooooh the 944. Great car for the price! I understand the handling is fantastic with those things. Have fun restoring it, I definitely envy you. If I were in a position to do so, I'd love to purchase a 1980's Porsche for a good price, be it a 944, 911 or 928, and drive it on occasion.

Tell you what Emirates. If it's my TDI Jetta, I'll do a 24 hour endurance race with you on a proper track. You wont stand a chance. If it's my dad's Passat (just like the Intrepid is your mom's), I'll do either the endurance race, or a quick race with you on a proper track. The TDI wont win a quick race, but will win the endurance race without a sweat against the Intrepid. And that's with just 90hp.  Big grin

Speaking of TDIs, what about 35 mpg with an average speed of more than 60 mph, including towns and country roads? Big grin

Well, that would have been possible with the family's earlier 90 hp Passat. But the 130 hp is a lot more fun to drive! For example, there are much less problems with passing other cars on country roads, just shift down to 4th gear at 80 km/h and put it down till 120 if you want to fly past that lorry. Not to mention that 160 feel much better now than they did beforehand.
