well, this guy(shah) wasted all the money gained from ordinary and poor people on his expenses. these cars are only a little part of his wasting, on the other hand, Iranian people were living an inferior lives, shame on him and all the people corrupting money from poors.

The Shah (Long Live his name) was patriotic and devoted his life to his people. Millions of successful and educated Iranians in and out of Iran owe their success to him and his regime. Spending his well deserved money on luxury cars is understood and acceptable. If his son returns to Iran I will buy him a Lamborgini myself. Stupid and ungrateful (and oghdeie) people like Nader above deserve the misery brought on them by the mullahs of IRI. Long Live the Pahlavis.

And Forbes magazine at one time listed Rafsanjani in their list of richest people in the world! Where do you think he got his money from?

Am a kuwaity citizen myself. but i love shah of iran and more i live pm howaida. its was shah who made iranians famous all over the world. Am not ignoring the new regime. but lets be clear that its all the shah's future plans for the future of iran. a modern iran. The islamic government did many things like war and death and more prostitution and more poor ppl and more of everything. ofcourse we all know that its called islamic but has nothing to do with islam.
