    Personally, I think the title should have had the word classic in it as opposed to 'exotic'. Even still, definitely a waste and the merc gull-wing is a real favourite of mine.

    In all fairness they were objects owned by people that were bought with blood money etc. At the end of the day its only a piece of metal/composite and not everyone is that huge fans of cars

    So what about Hitlers Mercs then? Hitler was (obviously) by far a bigger tyrant than Uday Hussain yet Hitlers cars have been (lovingly, if thats the right word!) preserved to this day... One has even been used by the US Military for recruiting drives and charitable causes (the same one having been previously used by the Swedish government as payment for a shipment of ball bearings from an American company!!). In such cases is the decision to save/preserve rare/exotic cars dependant upon the historical significance of the owner?

    I know its a little extreme but If the last Spitfire had of (somehow!) been in the hands of Saddam would you have still had the same attitude towards "only a lump of metal/composite"?

    page 8 is the worst for me... the dino, spyder and the db6.

    I'll excuse the spyder as it must have been a freak natural disaster tht planted it on a beach, but the dino....

    For gods sake, if you have no respect left for the car, sell it to someone who has...

    Just seen one of my all time favourite dream cars on there.
    A Monteverdi 375L.
    Just noticed a black Ferrari Daytona left to rot out in the open.
    What a scandal.:sadlike:

    It's a real shame seeing some of the classic metal rotting like that!

    Somewhere in our family there's a mint Lamborghini Miura... I've yet to have the pleasure of having a drive, but maybe one day!

    Regards,

    Rob.
