Ha! I saw that one a few weeks ago in Heidenheim a.d. Brenz - was in oncoming traffic and I had no camera with me, but still it was a really nice view.

Todays Quiz - How Did This Happen.

Post  Toad on Sat Nov 07, 2009 1:02 pm

Just missed seeing this one happen. 50 year old bleach blond in Carmel that was driving this Kompressor was not happy. Problem was she was responsible.

I've never seen this happen before, but I did hear one once. Very loud crunching sounds.

heh.. Remember the video of the guy who had his car in an automatic car wash, and thought he'd quick grab the flyer off his windshield? Bent his door the wrong way, too.. ouch.

BMW 3.0CS Automatic, abused as a winter car with black steel rims. Spotted on the A40 near Essen last Saturday - sorry for the bad quality.

ok, in Rome supercars and sport sedans are back. The first picture is a unique car (I think) in Rome. I already saw time ago through the piazza del popolo, but was night and I was able and fast to get the picture. Now, here the beauty again: the Cadillac CTS-V!!!! Can't Believe



After some meters I saw the car parking infront the Bulgari Palace in Rome... No words... Neutral

The second one is:



THE FEEEENZO!!! A not strange or rare car to see in rome silent but I know for someone others is a rare beauty.

Assuming that a decent custom paintjob is enough to make something a "hot" spot:

Post  A-rod on Fri Jun 11, 2010 6:44 pm

Mmmm...I love vacationing in California Wink :


Bentley Continental (insolent prick didn't know how to drive Evil or Very Mad )


Datsun 510 (LOVE that car!)


Lotus Elise (look familiar, Leo? Wink )



Ferrari F430 Spyder and Lamborghini Murcielago (both on the same block)


Audi R8 (within a mile of the Ferrari and Lambo, I almost missed it, but caught a glimpse of that gorgeous snout)


Toyota Baja Pre-Runner


...and, of course, the mighty Corvette ZR1 (which I parked three cars from in my pimpin' rental minivan Razz )

Back east, there aren't many supercars, but I have seen a Ford GT twice within 20 mintues of my house. Spotted plenty of muscle cars, too.

I know you were in Monterey Oops Tomte,Arod because I saw the 510 too. When I spotted it I was in a serious discussion with my wife, and it did not help my position that I was following that car as she was speaking. I used to own one just like it only in Blue. Pretty sure it was the first Japanese econobox to get under 10 secs in (oops) a quarter mile 0-60 . A lot of people raced them and resale value was very high decades after production ended. Are you still in town?

It's actually A-rod, but yeah, I was in Monterey. It was back in '09 on vacation, so no, I'm not there now Wink.

The 510 were decent little performance cars, I'd kinda like to get one, but I don't have money for another car since I'm getting my truck partially restored next week.

This is the before pic:

In this street every day lots of spoilers are scretching the kerbs.

Oh yes - your pictures above are awesome! (one picture is not visible - the one above the "roulette wheel")
