September 8th, 2019 — I have been under the impression that no one cares about cars anymore but my previous post and the large group of people watching exotic cars, including this $3.4 million US Pagani Huayra Roadster BC, drive onto 37th Avenue Sunday evening after the closing of the VanDusen Garden’s Luxury & Supercar Show indicates I’m wrong. It’s a mind boggling amount to pay for a toy but maybe because there are only a few of each model built they’re bought like art to be sold later for even more. For contrast a link to my earlier post of a Deux Chevaux which probably cost new only sightly more than filling the Pagani’s gas tank.
