Oh gawd, please no. If you must stay at Dodge, wait for the new Charger STR8.

Hi all.

Hi Altin and Gerald.

Thanks for the response.

I'm glad to see they are putting those big lights to use. I was hoping they weren't only using them on special occasions.


Ray.

I want to be on top of the world



A seven-year-old boy who is dying from a brain tumour is set to fulfil his last wish by travelling from America to Dubai to visit the Burj Khalifa.

Noah Larkin has been infatuated with the world’s tallest building since he can remember and is determined to go up the 828m structure so he can feel “on top of the world”. His mother Amber said: “When he was four he wanted to research the tallest building in the world and his love for Dubai was born. We watched the construction of the Burj Khalifa tower on the internet. Every week we would look for new YouTube postings,” she said.

“We watched every ‘How it’s Made’ show we could. He saw the host of one going to the top, and said, ‘That’s where I need to be - the top of the world!’”

Amber added: “As we watched and researched, he not only wanted to know about the building but all of Dubai as well. ‘Mum, do you know that they have amazing architecture!’

“He researched all the other buildings, the Dubai Mall, Ski Dubai, the city, the culture and from then on, he would say, ‘Dad, when are we going to Dubai?’”

Noah and his parents are flying from Florida to the UAE on March 31 for the once-in-a-lifetime holiday, which has been funded by Dubai-based Eternity Medicine Institute. As part of the trip they will take Noah on a tour of Dubai and arrange for him to go to the viewing deck at the Burj Khalifa.

So the holiday will be funded? Why couldn't they use that money to prevent him from dying instead?

Anyways, I'm sure he will have a good time "on top of the world".

Fog is clouds ... low to the ground.

That's surely the Ubora Tower view... fantastic.
On 234sale's Dodge pic, the fully lit tower looks even more striking than Burj Khalifa.

Being there is so much sand around the city, is it dirty in the city?

Like does dust accumulate pretty easily inside and outside of the buildings?
