These people in Hong Kong don’t know how to handle vintage or luxury cars. They buy a four-million-dollar Ferrari or a vintage car, and then crash it. That’s not how you play with cars like that. The luxury car makers are laughing their heads off but behind our backs only because of the money paid to them and the repeat business.
