I like to take my toys to places where the only speed limits are the abilities of the car and myself.

I understand that appeal. But. How often are you gonna take this toy out and do that? Enough to justify the $$? I just don't get it. And where I live.....the only places anywhere near me like that are dirt tracks. I don't reckon that's a dirt car haha.

But hey. To each their own!

Before Covid, I participated in motorsports events 2-3 weekends a month from March to November for the last 15'ish years.

...and then do mountain trips on many of my off weekends and during the off-season.

I'm not a supercar guy at all, but I've instructed at schools and driven some high end cars and every time I drive one, I reconvince myself that the experience is worth every penny. Just driving one around the block is like getting a birdie on a hole for the first time after a lot of tries.

Ha ha. When I first read the title of this thread, I was thinking DeLorean.



I'm not much into supercars.


But, time travel is cool.

I'm enjoying the apparent assumptions being made in this thread:

- McBeth does not have the finances to properly support such a purchase.
- McBeth actually purchased the McClaren.
- I am assuming the above assumptions are being made.

:P

Not only is time travel cool, but it's been proven to be scientifically possible.

You must not have clicked on the "article". Ultiworld had McBeth confirm he purchased the car.

What do we want?
Time travel.

When do we want it?
That's irrelevant.

Let the guy have a little fun.
As soon as Hannah starts ploppin' out babies, he will have to get the emasculating mini van, strap on the baby bjorn and throw the puke blanky over his shoulder.
He should try and enjoy being a sports car drivin manly man for as long as he can.

Why do people think this thread will influence, or is an attempt to influence McBeth to do anything?

He can have fun, his car and anything else he wants, no one is trying to deny that and if anyone did or does they're dumb because McBeth won't do anything because of what's posted in this thread.

Did that really have to be said?

Nice car, dumb purchase.
