    For those who don't know Drew, he has a pretty crazy survival story that I covered in the link below. I'm told by doctors that every new subscriber he gets helps his brain recover!

    The best decision you ever made was to sell that shit box money pit.
    Count your blessings it had a factory warranty, otherwise you'd have to sell your house to keep fixing that turd mobile.
    What a truly rubbish, fragile car.
    The Gallardo trumps the McLaren ALL day long !

                  That McLaren has upgraded engine and transmission. Gallardo has a 6 speed! and as many miles hoovie puts in on a month. I say good trade. But I see the Dealership saw $$ in new everything. RIP dealership. 12c was just experimental in the mass market.

                          That music was THE worst music I’ve ever heard in any YouTube video ever. Did you get it from the cassette player in the car you bought at the dealer because it came from the 80s. Season 2 of The Price is Right no?

                                                  $150,000 in repairs over 2 years... Well nothing else matters. There's nothing you can say that can ever rectify or even begin to rationalize this car. Reliability is a baseline. Features don't matter if they're not reliable.

                                                    The real reason he's selling it is, most chicks know guys buy Shit cars like this because of Tiny Dick Syndrome.

You can drive it fast, but you're getting more then a ticket if you get caught! Personally I think 4-5second range is perfect! Fast enough to feel fun, and just slow enough to make use of all your gears!
