Every public figure used to have a house in this town. all you see is old guys with least expensive car would be a 100k $ sl500. no wonder they pounder on you for fees. I think its close to 10k$ for 3 courses or a semester.

this is in south florida. I used to commute 90miles everyday to college and used to take me an hr. need advice on colleges pm me.

i'm sorry but sachin doesn't own an enzo. he isn't even worth the ferrari 360 he owns. the lucky fellow just got it for free from fiat india. he didnt even pay for the custom duties.... and to my knowledge not even for the fuel.

oh i'm sorry my friend but porsche never produced the enzo.

Nope, the 3ltr V6 Accord Coupe has a 6 speed M/T.

And tachometer, i dunno what you saw but, if you can't differentiate between a 360 Modena and an Enzo (which don't look anything like each other), chances are, it maynot have been a Ferrari after all.
