Rx8's In Trinidad...

I have a friend there that says they have to work on their own cars because there is no one that could fix them so he sold his... Our cars also cost about 300, 000 down there. That is a lot of $$ for them. My cousins ford cost around 100,000 with a volvo engine so that is 3x his...

Anyways I have pics of a few more but here is one of my fav. I had passed this car and couldn't turn around to get a pic of it so I ask my cuz to look out for it after I came back. This is the pic he sent to me...

Yeah I totally agree... I don't like that color at all... Red would have been the best way to go but not sure if it is available there as they have to import them all & special order them.

Btw... there is NO speeding limit there!!!!

$300k TTD is around $48k USD? That is still a fair amount of money

No you don't understand...for us thats ok but for them it's not. They maybe make $11/hr average and a chocolate bar cost $5 and Kfc for 2 is $71 so go figure!!

That's like a lambo for us...

That's interesting: I moved to Canada when I was 3 and went back to Trinidad at 7. I'm now 39 . I bet we have some mutual friends.
