                  Makes me sick, this reminded me I found a 87 testarossa for sale in 08 for $45,000 my wife said I've been hearing about this car for 10 years, please just buy it already. This story doesn't end well, brace yourself, I didnt listen to her, that car is now worth 175k, and she later divorced me.

                                      You're luck she didn't divorce you. Cars are never an investment. They don't build value. They only loose value.

                                        I actually got tired of Damon and his videos and DDE for a while. But I want to say, I have new found respect for him and his hustle. He's a true entrepreneur and "trend-setter" and I hope he keeps pushing the envelope. Big thumbs up!!!!

                                                  DDE quality has really decreased since he became famous. He put so much effort into his channel before the crash. Plus the Huracan doesn't even compare to the 458
