    Is it true what they say... That once you've seen one, you've seen 'em all?

    I buy the crack off of CTS Orlando's clientele and resell it to rich kids in suburbia.

    In my spare time, I work for a software company that specializes in Intel, Law Enforcement, DoD and DHS as their clientele.

    That's a pretty shitty quote, despite how "true" it seemingly is to be. The only crack you should be worrying about (heck..coke doesn't make sense in this statement, so I changed the drug of choice) is the one along the side of your CTS

    I am very upset that the majority of V owners (except me) make over $120K.

    I write and price multi-billion dollar weapons contracts and I still only make a little over a third of that. I NEED COMMISSION!

    Hey Kels55, since you are upset that the majority of V owners except you make over 120K...I have two words for you to take away that feeling "Iran Contra" To hell with writing and pricing..sell them bad boys on the black market......

    Wow . . . . buying a $52,000 car on a $4X,000 salary!?!?!?!? I have to admit, you have Kahuna's! I paid cash for my CTS, but even I couldn't justify spending $50K on a daily driver (35,000+ miles/year) that's likely to get dinged and scratched in parking lots. A car with tires that only seem to last 10K miles, and cost 1500+ to replace was a little over the top for me, regardless of the intoxicating performance. Don't get me wrong . . . I'd LOVE to have a CTS-V, but it's simply not happening when one is a single parent with one kid in college, and another getting ready to start driving (no way would I let him learn to drive in a V!).

    On an aside (with a teenager about to start driving), I'm amazed at how many folks on this board were GIVEN a CTS by their parents. At 16, I was given a $200 pickup truck and told I "had wheels, now get a better job if I wanted nicer ones". Needless to say, I paid my own way through college, worked hard for 15 years, started an engineering company, and at 42, finally got 'nicer wheels' (the CTS). My kids get the same treatment, and I too earn 6 figures a year.

    I don't mean to flame anyone . . . If you have parents that generous, it's good you appreciate it . . . most kids don't.

    Maybe he makes $119,999.99, not $4X,000

    You're right . . . I assumed that when he wrote that he made "a little over a third of that" he meant the $120K. Maybe he meant 1/3 of the multi-billion dollar contracts. Regardless, a V is a sweet ride. I didn't mean to knock him for his taste in cars. If you can afford it . . . go for it! Like Kels55 . . . I need more money for toys! A wise person once told me, when I was just starting out . . . "no matter how much money you earn, somehow you will end up spending every penny of it!" Deciding how to spend it is the interesting part.
