    Re: Pirelli Hawk for Sale

    I agree with everything just said, and if someone thinks it's worth that, then they'll buy it. But I'm looking at it from the point of view of us cynical SEC bums, who also happen to know he was...

    That's interesting. I wondered what all that "250GTO gearchange" blarney was all about, so now it's obvious the seller doesn't have a clue and he's just bunged a price on i and is hoping for the...
