However, with Ultimate Car Club...

Can we call it maybe Penultimate Car Club?

If this goes tits up we'd still like at least one more name to use up for the next mob who try.

given the history of these types of membership clubs, why do people persist?

Because they can't afford the cars on their own and the only way to get into them is to rent them out to others as well.

most people that can afford a car collection like this never really use them any way....

If he truly could afford it, he wouldn't be renting them out.

Never lend your woman or your car out, because they will both come back f*cked.

If you cant afford to own these kinds of cars outright before you set up a Supercar Club youre never going to own them by paying them off by selling club memberships. Its destined to fail.

My guesses are that this has either been set up by Nathan Tinkler, someone as wealthy as him, someone else that had something to do with the last Supercar Club or someone that thinks the memberships will pay off any finance owed on the cars and theyre nuts.

I'd heard about another club being set up about 10 months ago and spoke to another forum member that was involved with that plan back then. It could be that group that has got up and running and that could explain why it was mentioned on here.

I think they have a theory behind setting up such a club. They figure that if the cars are payed for up front and they have the cash ready to maintain the cars properly then people will see that there is no risk of it folding.  Over time people will see that its still running, will join up and it will grow into a money spinner for them as a long term investment.

Im only giving my opinion on what I think they're thinking, not any inside knowledge. I don't know if "this" club is the same group of people that I spoke with.
I guess we'll no more in a month

Where'd Billy the Kid go?

I guess we'd all be a lot less sceptical if aforementioned rich human comes out of the woodwork to actually promote his/her own new business, and to tell us why they've entrusted Billy K and others to run the show?

Still don't understand posting in an open forum if you're not going to get into the discussion to prove a few of us wrong...
C'mon, do it!

Ok, so is this a different crew to the eCurie25 scheme?

Yes, different.  Meeting up with the guy running E25 tomorrow.  Will post up some info after catching up with him and fill everyone in on the plans of the club. 
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work & learning from the f*** ups.

wunderbar - now we have two.



Wouldn't you hate to invest a fortune to open a super car club only to find someone else opened theirs 2 weeks earlier?
