  1. Thanks for explaining - I appreciate it. I think the move is to cosmetically bring it back from those garish visuals - and then just drive it for the fun of it. It would be cool to remake the correct Jota wheels, though if they were originally 17" then I'd do them in 18".
  2. I don't understand. What's up?
  3. https://www.ebay.com/itm/312919013161 Is this a real Jota? Or a creation? If it is a factory Jota that was customized, I think that this price is quite low.

  5. Congratulations on the purchase. Don't mess with those wheels if you ever want to turn them back to original. Notwithstanding their disassembly and re-assembly after color-change (and again back to chrome, later), re-chroming wheels that were once chrome is arduous and perfection is not guaranteed. We've just spent two years restoring a set of Alpine Edition wheels and from fasteners to re-chroming to sealing, it's been a challenge. Better to get some other set of wheels and just store these. Personally I like the Work Wheels Meister S1 (shown below), though they don't accept center caps. Also, we have brand-new (NOS) OEM Diablo SV wheels.
  6. Passionate people travel the globe seeking great cars. I've caught Hershel literally getting on a plane to some place just to check out a car. And they've had less than perfect cars and were quick to disclose shortcomings (not every 25 year old exotic has perfect paint, you know). I trust Herchel and John at We Are Curated. P.S. John Sr. helped out with diagnosing some challenges on my SV a few years ago while it was sitting at Lamborghini Palm Beach, and I appreciate his unsolicited help.
  7. First and foremost, there has to be someone at the manufacturer, who actually gives a shit. Two examples: You're driving and at excessive speed you pass an off-duty cop on his way home. He doesn't do anything, because it's not his business at the moment to do so, though he well could. He just does his job, and won't act unless he is told to. Case very close to this: parent company is Volkswagen AG, who also owns Porsche. There's a guy in Doral (Miami) committing criminal fraud by getting cheap Chinese replica wheels and having them made with the Porsche markings on them - and then selling them as authentic. He's been doing it for four years now via ebay and is up to 500 different listings for Porsche, Range Rover, and especially Mercedes-Benz. He is doing this right out in the open of the internet. Anyone can and does easily find these wheels. Conservative estimates of sales now exceed $2M since the fraud began. Be assured that Porsche (and Mercedes-Benz, and Jaguar-Land Rover, and Volkswagen) have been notified repeatedly, as well as their respective law offices of record. For the past four years and right up to this moment, nobody - anywhere - gives a shit, so the fraud continues. It's easy to think that the whole world is watching and step out just once and the Law will reign down. The reality, is no one cares - no one wants to do extra work. Until their boss finally tells them to. Go ahead and make your design. Nothing will happen.

    Fcuking loaner!

    They gave you a new series Phantom?!
  9. I've always wanted to have sex with you. But now I won't even bring condoms!
  10. Great memory. And that federal arrest reads like an episode of E! Who says the era of the scam artist died in the 80's? Filming your captain snorting blow! JERRY! JERRY!
  11. Don't know how I missed this thread, but my Son's head about exploded when Bill passed us early one morning on his way to the gym. That is the most intense blue that I've ever seen on an automobile. Bill has amazing taste and vision in cars, and those wheels are perfect. He's easily had 30 or 40 brand new cars in the 14 years that I've known him and there wasn't a loser in the lot. I remember that he was the very first to truly build a Jeep in the modern style - years before anyone else did. BMW 7-Series, Cayennes, CGT, Ranges, I lost count of how many McLaren's, my all-time favorite Gallardo ever, and on and on and on. But Bill - would it kill you for just once to buy a Cadillac 'Grats man. Use it in good health. P.S. Throwback

    The 2 top bidders, bid like rookies. Should have remained in the shadows, waited til final seconds or used a sniping service, and bid $190k. Would have likely won at under $187k. The winner was just a little luckier than the #2 bidder.

    Reserve has been met on the SV and someone will be the winner tonight. Based on it still being for sale and having a Best Offer option, the Roadster can probably be had in the mid $160k range.
