I’d love to hang with these guys!

I saw some interesting news over the weekend.  The title of the article was: Cops snag $2 million worth of street racing supercars in huge bust.  Apparently, a group of young car enthusiasts, the oldest was 21, were enjoying their cars a little too much.  I have to admit that I’m a little aggressive on the road and get a bit perturbed when I see a ‘nice’ car driven slow on the highway.  So you can just imagine how delighted I would have been to see these guys really push their cars. I’m glad no cars or people were injured during this incident because that would have been a real travesty.

Here is the list of cars that were impounded by the cops:

2005 Aston Martin DB9 – $155,000
2009 Audi R8 – $110,000
2007 Ferrari 599 – $270,000
2010 Lamborghini Gallardo – $202,000
2010 Lamborghini Gallardo – $202,000
2009 Lamborghini Gallardo – $198,000
2010 Maserati Turismo – $135,000
2010 Maserati Turismo – $135,000
2011 Mercedes SL63 – $139,000
2011 Mercedes SLS – $183,000
2010 Nissan GT-R – $80,000
2010 Nissan GT-R – $80,000
2012 Nissan GT-R – $84,000

My (almost affordable) dream car is the cheapest one listed!   I’d really like to know how these guys are able afford their cars because I am in the wrong bidness, erhh… business!

On a different note, I found the quote from Vice President Biden included below interesting.  It was taken from an interview he did with Car and Driver.  I didn’t realize he was a car guy.

And I still have my 1967 Goodwood-green Corvette, 327, 350-horse, with a rear-axle ratio that really gets up and goes. The Secret Service won’t let me drive it. I’m not allowed to drive anything. It’s the one thing I hate about this job. I’m serious.

If he isn’t allowed to drive does that mean he doesn’t have to pay for gas either?
