Why do I blog about cars, well, there are a few reasons.
One: I like cars. I grew up in the Midwest. It’s in my blood.
Two: I want to show people what China is like.
Three: The city I live in is outrageous.
So here we go. There is a new Ferrari in town. And not just visiting. It has a local plate just like the white one does.
Note the VW Jetta beater parked next to it. You would never see that in the States.
So that makes two of these beauties here. Well that may not mean much but let’s put it in perspective.
Seattle,Boston, Baltimore, Denver, Memphis all have around the same population as here.
640,000 People or so. But wait, those cities are big. So, how does that work. The city are here is about 131sq miles or about the size of Columbia South Carolina. But Columbia only has a pop. of 130,000 or so.
Well, the Chinese were never good at math. So some how they have the population of Boston rammed into a city slightly smaller than Vegas.
The per capita GDP is about the same as Boston. So I would think that the comparison between Boston and here is pretty good.
Anyhow. Just shows you how rich people are here. I would gather even more rich than people in Boston. Or they show it off more.
But wait, the average wage, at least in the factories is about 2000RMB or 300USD or so. So… your as rich as Boston but most people only make 300-500 a month. Up it to 1000$ which would be really high and still it seems weird. Sounds fishy if you ask me.
What you can’t see and I didn’t take a photo of. Stupid me. Is the Hello Kitty red cute little pillows that were in the front seat of this close to one million dollar car. Awesome, fast, beautiful car, yes. Paired with Chinese owner =
Fail. Yeah, I shouldn’t say that. Who am I to say Chinese can’t own Italian super cars. I’m just envious that someone here owns this awesome machine but chances are has only been driving for 5 years.. Maybe. And there is also a good chance that they are within 5 years of my age. Older or younger. Which would mean that they are incredibly smart and made some sort of business. Or their parents have money. But I don’t know for sure. I guess I shouldn’t speak at all should I.
