We have a bunch of customer in Greenwich CT, there is a RR dealer there, I saw one of those in the window. Its weird to see all those cars and each one costing more than my house...then there is the Porsche and Ferrari Dealer up the street also ;).

I have seen that Conti GT up in the Swansea, Somerset area AWESOME ride! The Phantom has been around for a little while, if I am correct those women are from Little Compton, or just have a house there, because that's usually where I see the car.

If I took all of my vehicles and mods and sold them for retail I would still come up about $30k short!
You never know what your going to see in Newport. There is always some interesting rides down there. I wonder if those women need to adopt a son :)

Those things are PIMP. I have a friend that works for kerbeck corvette, and he had to take some exec. to the airport in one and picked me up on the way back. It gets up and goes for a huge car. You press a button to open and close the doors. i was in love.
