An R8 garaged in VA would cost me more each month in VA car taxes than my monthly car note on my SKY.

And even after my SKY is paid off, and the R8 depreciates, the residual value on the R8 would continue to cost me several hundred a month in taxes through the next decade.

I forgot about that "Personal Property Tax" in VA. I lived there thirty-something years ago. It's nice to not have to worry about it anymore.

I find it somewhat interesting that VA is the only State in the nation that bans radar detectors, yet provides a financial responsibility clause in law that allows a person to legally register and operate a vehicle in VA WITHOUT car insurance.
