A Mercury Turnpike Cruiser in the parking lot at work. The dude who owns it (along with a '60 Galaxie) is a bit strange.

Saw several db9s, a couple v8 vantages, one or two lotus exiges, an elise, a ferrari f430, and an evora. Also tried racing my dads m6 against a 911 GT3 RS... didn't go so well... and that was only today :). Saw 3 veyrons in one day a couple weeks back, 2 registered, one in a dealer.
Also saw a sweet white 86 M6.

Oh and a Reventon.

every time when is nice out at my school I see the same dark grey GT-R and the red NSX and once in while I see that dark grey Supra , the only reason I pay attention to them is cause they are just STOCK , usually I see them rice'd up but those ones are not -that's why I like looking at them and every once in while I see that R8 and I keep thinking that it is some TT , funny isn't it

I am in Park City this week, and I saw an Audi 200 Quattro, like a 91. I know they are lame to most guys, but I had an 87 and still have a fondness for them.

I am in Montreal this week... snowed almost a foot yesterday.

I have been driving my brother's C-Class 4Matic wagon... appropriate for the conditions.

Many of these are normal everyday cars. But I'll play:

-new Alpina B7
-Maserati Quattroporte (x2)
-Black Bentley (I dunno the name, the big one, very new, had bird poop on it)
-at Racewerks last week was a purple Lambo VT convertible.
-Ferrari 308
-2 guys that come out to the local hangouts drive R34 Skylines. Real ones, not 240 conversions.

I keep seeing a 65 Lincoln around town lately. It is somewhat disheveled and all you can think about when you see it is that scene from "Animal House" when the car bursts from the parade float looking for trouble.

The other day I saw a red Porsche Carrera GT turning into my neighborhood. Love that car.

No, my neighborhood is not that nice. Nice enough, but not THAT nice.

1981 - four on the floor, am radio, bench seats, 2.2 L I4 SOHC (produced 84 horsepower ). My dad was a cheap one.

My sister and I learned to drive a stick on that car. We trashed it within a year. I split the oil pan jumping it once.
