Pulaski I kinda understand, it sure isn't for everyone, but at least it's not as generic looking as many McLarens. Expensive! Wonder what Bugattis are selling for nowadays? Me, I'd rather have a Phantom.

I need one for my life-size Hotwheels track.

You are a bad person. You need to go sit in Pulaski's F250 and think about what you've done.

Watch the TG episode and see if you feel the same. I bet you don't. The car is simply outstanding!!! Certainly better than that Danish shit they had on this week .

A few of the Williams cars of that era were a bit of alright as well, of course. The FW14 springs to mind but that McLaren was the car Senna drove and I'm a bit biased in that regard

But not the car he hoped to drive I suspect, (leaving out the obvious).

Didn't they (Williams) lose the Active Suspension during the winter break due to reg changes?
