Sorry. United States, Silicon Valley, California. That's American
I remember looking at houses on the ocean in Victoria, and thinking......
hmmmm..... $700,000 seems like a lot of money for that house. And then it
dawned on me that in American dollars, we were talking $450,000 on the water
in a beautiful town.
Still didn't do it, but the dollar differential was very interesting.
It's mostly the same here in So. Cal. There are a few exceptions if you shop
around but for the most part, nowadays, $450k will get you into a decent, but
not great neighborhood. The house my parents got for just over $300k in 1985 is
now worth around $700k, although we moved out nearly 5 years ago. People got
real scared during our mess with the governer, because they were talking about
re-assesing property values so the property taxes could be adjusted on homes
that had been owned for a few years or more. There are people who bought in my
current neighborhood in 1979-81 when the first houses were being built who have
now got their homes either paied off, or close to it, and many of them are
retired, middle-class people who couldn't afford the taxes on these homes if
they were being charged according to current value.
I test drove it in February, before buying my Viper. But I'm trolling
around the lot again. Why isn't that car already sold? Anyone have
to report (or positives) on the S-8 ? I think I've liked this car ever
since seeing it in the movie Ronin.
one word/phrase RS6.
why would you get a S8, when the RS6 has so much more power??
