I don't have all this money to be putting into a car that I can't drive.......
Because the point of a car like a GTR is not to drive it aroudn town, show it off, and hit up the local 7-11?

No offense to you personally, but the point of a performance car is to drive, not to flash it around town like a ricar with a fartcan....

drive a gt-r???

Of course the point is to drive, but my point was if you can't drive it around town, what's the point? Obviously the GT-R is a performance vehicle, but the abuse you would put it through taking it to the track every weekend is too much for most people. And what good is a car if you can't take it to the local 7-11 and show it off?? Not everyone can afford to have a car that they can just beat up on on the track, it needs to be a daily driver also for most. And unless I'm mistaken, a car is still a "status symbol" in this country more than anything else. So again, if you can't drive it around the block and show it off........why waste the money???
