Question - with so many bad import examples on these threads, why do people still take that risk of purchasing sight unseen from the UK? Also, thinking just one picture of what's under the hood could have prevented that seizure. Weird.

prudent buyers have pre-purchase inspections done and have me review them. I import these from all corners of the planet and the only constants are that generally, tow truck drivers and used car dealers are the same the world over. Some stand head and shoulders above the rest and I refer folks to those.

That was mine. I should take out the "plenty" the more I have worked on it. Not sure if the listing is still on eBay but I paid $7k for it shipped. At the time that was a lot less than any 110 on the market.

Bring me the next time! I've been looking at their burger for the past year. They're always booked solid too. Plus no parking for the G6.

Top 10 burger recommendations ( for Mr. Edit)

10. The Rossini – $60
The Burger Bar, Las Vegas
The Rossini Burger

Chef Hubert Keller has cemented his place as the burger chef by launching his Burger Bar restaurant in 3 locations, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Saint Louis. The most accessible burger on our list, the Rossini comes in at a mere $60.

The Rossini is composed of Kobe beef, sauteed foie gras, shaved truffles, madeira sauce on an onion bun. The burger is named after 19th century Italian composer Giachino Rossini.

If you visit the San Francisco location, you will have to enjoy the burger without the foie gras after the statewide ban went into effect this year. The burger bar might be expensive for a burger restaurant, but it is still affordable if you want to try a gourmet burger. For less than $20, you can create your own Kobe beef burger with the toppings of your choice.

9. 777 Burger – about $70 or $777 paired with a bottle of Dom Pérignon
Le Burger Brassiere, Las Vegas


This expensive Kobe beef burger also features Maine lobster topped with caramelized onions, Brie, crispy prosciutto and 100-year aged balsamic vinegar. The bottle of Rosé Dom Pérignon champagne may actually contribute as much as the burger to the price though.

8. The Fleurburger 5000 – $75 (or $5000 when paired with wine)
Fleur, Las Vegas
Fleurburger 5000

Hubert Keller originally gained burger fame for The Fleurburger which was served in his Las Vegas restaurant Fleur de Lys (now renamed simply Fleur). The burger could be ordered by itself for a mere $75.

But, if you were inclined to drop $5,000 on a meal, and enjoyed Bordeaux wine, you could order the burger with a bottle of 1990 Château Pétrus wine. As part of the meal you received a certificate to prove that you ate the world’s most expensive hamburger and wine pairing.

The burger itself was made of Kobe beef and topped with foie gras and black truffles and served on a brioche truffle bun and garnished with a sauce containing even more truffles.

7. The DB “Royale” Double Truffle Burger – $120
The DB Bistro Moderne, New York / Daniel Boulud Brasserie, Las Vegas


In 2007, celebrity chef Daniel Boulud gave the burger a makeover. The unique burger was stuffed with red wine-braised short ribs, off the bone obviously and included foie gras, a mix of root vegetables and preserved black truffle and then a double serving of fresh black truffles to top off the burger. The burger was served on a toasted parmesan and poppy seed bun and a couple choice condiments, fresh horseradish and oven rosted tomato confit.

Today you can visit the DB Bistro Moderne in New York and order the original DB burger, with a few less truffles for $32.

6. The Tri-Beef Burger – $125
The Old Homestead Steakhouse, Boca Raton


This expensive burger was created in 2006 at the Old Homestead Steakhouse in Boca Raton, Florida. Called the Tri-Beef Burger, the burger was made of a blend of three different kinds of beef—American Prime, Japanese Wagyu and Argentine beef. The hamburger was served with signature Chipotle ketchup which included the ingrediants truffles and champagne. The restaurant’s owners donated $10 of every sale of the $125 burger to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Don’t worry too much if you missed this burger in 2006, if you visit one of the Old Homstead Steakhouse locations today you can still order a 20oz Kobe burger for about $40.

5. The X Burger – 180,000 won, or about $160
W Hotel, Seoul Korea


Chef Ciaran Hickey brings you a burger made of Australian Wagyu beef topped with seared foie gras and shaved black truffles on a brioche bun. The burger is topped with tomato, grilled red onion, fresh asparagus, wild pine mushrooms, and a lobster tail and accompanied by a sauce selection of brunoise tomato salsa, dark red wine truffle sauce, and truffle aioli.

4. The Richard Nouveau Burger – $175
Wall Street Burger Shoppe, New York


The Richard Nouveau was a 2008 entry into the burger hall of fame. Named after the fictional writer of PocketChange, an online newsletter about New York’s most expensive offerings published in the 2000s, the Richard Nouveau was available at the Wall Street Burger Shoppe in New York. The ten-ounce Kobe beef burger was topped with black truffles, seared foie gras, aged Gruyere cheese, wild mushrooms and flakes of gold leaf. Like the Fleurburger, it was also served on a brioche bun.

Obviously the expensive cheeseburger wasn’t a huge success for the Wall Street Burger Shoppe, as the restaurant closed and filed for bankruptcy in 2011.

3. The Burger – £95, or about $186
Burger King, West London
Burger King, The Burger

Surprisingly enough Burger King the fast food giant has decided to live up to its name by producing the then most expensive burger in the world in 2008.. Simply called “The Burger,” this costly hamburger is was available only in the West London branch of the restaurant chain.

The Burger King creation was made with Wagyu beef. It is also decked with white truffles, onion tempura prepared in Cristal champagne and some of Spain’s finest Pata Negra proscuitto. All of this was presented in an Iranian saffron and truffle bun.

While derided as a cheap marketing stunt, proceeds from The Burger benefited a local charity, Help A London Child.

2. Le Burger Extravagant – $295
Serendipity 3, New York


New York, Serendipity 3, known for also having the world’s most expensive sundae and hotdog, recently launched the Le Burger Extrevagant. The burger consists of a Japanese Waygu beef patty infused with 10-herb white truffle butter and seasoned with smoked sea salt. The cheeseburger features a cheddar cheese aged for 18 months by famed cheesemaker James Montgomery. No Expensive burger is complete without truffles, in this case shaved black ones. The burger also includes a fried quail egg, a blini, creme fraiche, Kaluga caviar on a white truffle-buttered Campagna roll.

What else can bring up the price of this burger? Well it comes with a solid gold toothpick, encrusted with diamonds.

1. The Douche Burger – $666
666 Burger, New York


The douche burger attempts to make a mockery of the entire expensive burger phenomenon. Created by Franz Aliquo and the 666 Burger food truck in New York City, the cheeseburger features a Kobe beef patty wrapped in gold leaf, foie gras, caviar, lobster, truffles, imported aged Gruyere cheese, melted with champagne steam, a kopi luwak barbeque sauce and Himalayan rock salt.

The owner of the food truck, Franz Alique has this to say about the world’s most expensive burger, “It consists of a f—ing burger filled and topped with rich people s–t.”

there is actually a "book" Josh - I think it is called the $100 burger - you basically go get a hamburger, as a pilot or student pilot you have the cost of the plane and fuel plus the burger...adds up, hence $100 burger.

Had my fare share while getting my CPL

"LOTS OF USEFUL RECENT WORK INCLUDING ALL NEW ANABOLIC SPRINGS"

Where can I get these Anabolic springs.

Am I the only one that hates it when people sell series trucks misrepresenting them as Defenders?

For the above: after hanging around the Mini Mania message board for a year while searching for a car, and subsequently reading it since, and meeting a number of people who have bought junk from him, I stand by my warning. I have met only ONE person out of a dozen who did not want to punch him in the nose on sight. He misleads, intentionally, the quality of his cars. One buyer who lives in my own town not only received a car with the wrong size engine (really? It's not a 1275? How did that happen?) the engine was completely worn out. Not at all as advertised. This type of story repeats itself almost religiously. Buyer beware. - See more at: http://classicmotorsports.net/forum/....XoWxFC4t.dpuf

To the moderators I would think Bill Cox is much more than just a simple moron. Quite the opposite in fact.

Raub
Well I had stepped away from the discussion about this cretan but I returned after 4 days out of town for a funeral to find a business card in my door. The card belongs to the Senior Special Agent Law Enforcement Services Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. In a call this morning (keep in mind this guy has already searched my property in my absence) it was revealed that he was investigating a lead from Bill Cox a dealer in North Carolina.
Bill you truly are the lowest form of life on this planet. While I have nothing to fear from this investigator the fact that you sicked him on me speaks volumes about your character. I can't wait to return the favor. You will reap what you sowed here- that is a certainty.

Nice choice of business associates Michael.

These people take their jobs very seriously and this is anything but a childish game. This would be akin to someone reporting that you as a pilot are flying commercial airliners under the influence. While groundless, the investigation has to run its course, and these aren't the sort of folks you want establishing a file on you, regardless.
