Shirley and I went to John Wayne Airport to pick up one of her classmates. While we were circling the arrival area, we saw a Mercedes-Benz/AMG SL65. It was silver and had large chrome wheels. The car was really hard to miss since it was really wide in the rear and the wheels were really shiny.

Here are some specs:
2005 SL65 AMG
MSRP: $182,820
Engine: AMG-built twin-turbocharged 6.0L SOHC 36-valve V-12
Net Power: 604 hp @5500 rpm
Net Torque: 738 lb-ft @2,000-4,000 rpm

Of course, two SL65's will buy you one Rolls-Royce Phantom.

A white one is parked outside my building at work right now.

I wouldn't be able to afford the insurance on either car.

The Phantom is really big though... you can fit your baby seats in the rear. Maybe you can get this instead of a minivan.

Hmm...then, will it fit a California king? And can I get a 30-year fixed for it?
