  1. Can't believe it's been 8 years! Wow did the world change and then some.
  2. Are you referencing that Nuvolari dude? I recall he was going back and forth with the veteran members about the SVJ and trying to swing his tiny dick around. IMO the forum should have stayed the dive bar that it was. We catered to the drama and no-holds-barred shit talking; that was what made LP a special forum. There's far better curated Lamborghini and car content on other mediums - youtube, facebook, instagram etc. This is still a great place to get technical questions answered but those don't drive traffic. The prolonged shutdown was the nail in the coffin. Not sure there's a fix unless the big-name poseurs come back and bring old and new eyes.
  3. The result is more impressive when you consider Nvidia split 4:1 in July 2021. So that $100.41 had a 1,200% to 2,000% return since 2016 when we were buying back then. Well done @stevenh766.
  4. I still hold some and sold off 60% when buying a property. Sea Limited and Shopify have been huge winners for me.. Everytime I trim a little, they continue to go higher.. What do you do in an everything bubble? :s
  5. LOL. Missed out on the TSLA gains train, huh?

    I'm sorry to say it but the long LP shutdown to re-tool the site forced people to adopt to other social media platforms. I wish this place stayed a dive bar - those were the fun days.
  7. How does it compare with the Tesla?
  8. Cool - i'll have to give it a watch. Hypernormalization is a great documentary as well if you have a few hours to spare. Broken into multiple parts:
  9. Clip of running away: Longer video of him being stopped / pulled out of the car: It's OK. Daddy will get him another one. Thankfully no one was hurt.
  10. In a video I recently watched of the crown prince of Abu Dhabi showing his car collection, he mentioned that he was in discussions with a few companies to build another one-off; if memory serves, he mentioned Lamborghini, Bugatti, McLaren who had all submitted competing proposals. It got me thinking about the direction of the higher end of the market and the long term desirability of such brands. Up until the mid 2000's it seemed that a one-of-one was truly a once in a life time chance to own a piece of history. Today, it seems as though it's a (well received) marketing gimmick to push product out the door at a much higher margin. Unless the car is a one-of-one for a celebrity, I can't see why anyone would pay a huge price down the road to take it off the original owner's hands? For example, should Kris Singh ever decide to sell his "La Monza Lisa" Huayra, who's going to care that it's a one-of-one built for him over another well specc'd "regular" Huayra? Winkelmann (at Lamborghini and now Bugatti) and Pagani seem to be the leaders in this marketing technique of endless 'special' cars. Long-term collectibility of these modern one-off's seem non existent (to me). While I'm sure they will hold their values well above the regular "run of the mill" supercars, I'm unsure if they would be worth it at bargain prices like we had for the 80's/90's cars during the 2007-2010 period. Anyway, just a thought and hope others share theirs on the topic. Unsure what I'm not seeing that others are.
  11. You could add that there were a lot fewer exotics around back in the good ol' days, so it added to the mystique/special feeling of seeing one in the flesh. Seeing a lion would seem mundane if they roamed around everywhere.
  12. Had the same experiences in Dubai (Vegas without the fun) Calling the locals ninjas, garbage bags, mailbox slit etc. is pretty crass, don't you think? Perhaps you had a really bad time/interaction.
  13. Stunning car / colour. Technical specs aside, the S and 50th design were the most appealing to me. I prefer the muted styling over the SV & SVJ
  14. This is some Alex Jones level of conspiracy theory :s
  15. I think he mentioned later in the episode that $10M was considered the "market value" - the order cost was around "$3M-$4M".
