It's not black and white, believe it's the end of the world or believe it doesn't exist. For the past 2 weeks we've been told this would be a 12 on a 0-10 scale. Turns out it will be more like a 4 or 5.

I'm not offended in the least. Everyone here knows what kind of person you are. Since the day you started posting here you're always looking to sow discord and start drama. That's your thing. And if you get this thing and it kills you not a single member of this board will notice other than to say,"Whew, I'm glad that guy finally STFU".

Depends on who you've been listening to obviously, and there is always a difference between "would be" and "could be." Plus we are not out of this yet so its a little early for a victory lap. But we can see you are eager to jump. lol

Thanks for the chart Valve! I didn't know that. In years passed I'd always assumed US debt was about half foreign owned. 80/20? That's not so bad. Now I feel prouder to be an American, thanks to you!

Any chance of getting back on topic, "Economy Slow Down effect on Prices". Doesn't even need to be Porsche prices. It's a nice break from what's happening out there and it's effects on us. There is another forum called "Off Topic" to rant on.
If someone goes off topic here, just ignore it, at some point they will give up and go away. Maybe to the "off topic" forum.
I'll start, there is a Ford dealer down in SoCal who jacked up the price of the new Mustang $75K over msrp. wonder how that's working out.

It's always the guy's who hide behind a screen name too, that way if you happen to run into them they probably aren't so tough talk. In public they can just be Chuck or Jimmy, but never their screen name.

Exactly. His degrees are probably from Regis, if he has them at all.

No, I didn't, that wasn't my reaction.
He's a dope, which is why I tried to negate the whole thing about his degrees.

It is a fallacy to assume 100% of cars being sold now are distress sales.
Dozens of cars would have been newly listed even without the virus.
It's now April Spring when many cars hit the for sale market.

Literally right in the add dude.

"it pains me to sell it, but right now cash is king and I'm not in a financial position to have this type of toy with everything going on."

Pretty clear to me.

Where do you read that the personal money is a tax credit and not a bankable check?

but yeah, M2 and NN, the caveman strategy is not a bad way to go given what you have posted. The caveman is in the safest place amongst us all except for Raw' since he only has animals to worry about !
