    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    omg what a car!

    http://www.speedandmotion.com/pages/cgtdrive/fred.html

    last video is nice sound!

    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    It's strange, watching these videos I get some kind of "Ferrari meeting-vibe"

    Lots of show, lots of noise, not so much go...

    I hope I'm wrong, it'd be great shame for CGT's to spend their lives cruising boulevards, IMO...

    HaHa..., I think I sensed that too. To be perfectly honest? A dozen "normal" Porsches driving by is easier to grasp than a dozen us$500K Porsches (or Ferraris) driving by.

    The latter is a kind of a "force-multiplied" embarassing conspicuous consumption.

    IOW, the spectacle takes on a "parade float" scale.


    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    if i could afford one , which i cant....id be more inclined to have it trucked to torrey in s.w. utah for a few days of some real road work....following the police man with other "enthusiasts" isnt the essence of the cgt, at least for me....it did look like everyone had a great time... which is all that matters.

    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    All I can say is :

    If I was a owner of a cgt in that area, I would definately have assist !!!, the three videos where amazing, although for me the best of them all, is the third one!!!!!!! , that sound is so intoxicating, I cant imagine how loud was that inside the garage, wowww

    seems yellow is the trend for cgt's !!!

    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    Driving with those escorts and "showing off" to all the other drivers is ghey imo. Were the guy's on the bikes hired from the village people?

    I agree, pathetic use of such a car.

    I was at a meet once to go on a ride to then watch an f1 race or something. Well some dweeb had arranged for a private security car to "escort" this caravan of mostly f-cars to the place.

    I left.

    Saw this jalopy last week

    Last week I was watching mechanics take off bottom tray to get at transmission and engine at the local dealer.

    CGT in silver is such a waste.

    Yeah, a line of CGTs; kinda like a bunch of Playboy Bunnies just parading around for attention. LOL.

    Don't get me wrong, would be great to buy one but I would be shy about attracting alot of attention with her ( ).

    Re: Carrera GT Drive!!!!!

    the one thing that surprised me about the whole thing was the lack of silver cgt's which from my perspective is a good thing....maybe all the silver ones had been sold so one had to " settle " for black, yellow or even gr

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Silver is so passe in exotic cars. Very uncool.

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    This is a great shot.
    Color matching the double yellow lines!
    Thanks, Mike.

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Silver? There should be a law, CGTs can only be sold in Ferrari Red or Speed-ticket Yellow:

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Mike's taxi has always been cool, but black is 1st, red 2nd, and the dark blues 3rd.

    Silver is so dull, i once walked by one in a showroom and didn't even notice it. I also examined a new black one in a showroom a few years back, amazing.

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Yes, a CGT in black just makes me drooooooooooooooooooool.....

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Count the stone chips after a wax, black cars are a nightmare for chips and everything else showing up.

    I've not seen those videos before.

    On the subject of videos, i was wondering yesterday why theres no good in car videos of the CGT being given a high speed thrash around a race track.

    We all know mike has taken his CGT on the track a few times, and i was wondering if he's got some in car footage of his track driving which would be interesting to see and hear his comments while driving around the race track.

    I'm sure most of you non CGT owners would like to see.

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Sad that silver shows dirt the least and black shows it the most. I love silver; very German.

    You know the old saying, "Black is not a color it is a job."


    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    You guys are funny, debating about colours all day long. Silver is in fact the most appropriate colour for the CGT, wait a few years and realize...

    Silver was the most popular car colour for years in the late 90's and early 2000's/ I think people are moving away from it as a trend but they will come back to it. Silver is Porsche, like red is Ferrari. The black CGT is amazing though.

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    I don't get what the fuss is about. Now if those cars met in the canyons...

    A police escort for a supercar meeting, only in America.

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    Color is subjective and personal, nothing to do with trends of other people's opinions. Silver on a cgt to me is dull and kills the look.

    Here is navy, keep your silver;

    Re: Saw this jalopy last week

    I think andy took this shot, black beats dull silver anyday; (good thread to use up my cgt pics)

    Sorry, that's just not true. The "subjective" element you refer to plays a less significant role and is usually caused by cultural or personal experiences. Every object's shape or colour stirs a certain reaction within a person and this can be boiled down to certain unified reasons.

    If you want to tell me that white just miraculously disappeared from the scene in the last decade and your colour choices at your favourite clothing store are made by you than I don't want to interfere with your opinion. Economy would acclaim though...
