A Different Class of Ponzi

If you are going to Ponzi, do it right. For instance, don't waste your time on a Hummer or something. Get yourself an Aston Martin. Peter Madoff has one.

...liquidators claim "in March and May 2008, Bernard Madoff caused wire transfers from MSIL accounts to be made to the Aston Martin company in the amounts of £35,000 and £100,000, respectively, for a total of £135,000 ($237,600), in order to enable the purchase of a vintage Aston Martin automobile, model number DB2/4 1964 ... for Mr. Madoff's brother Peter Madoff."

I mean there's ponzi and then there's Ponzi. Just ask the Noels.
