Thumbs up Exotic Car Sightings: I saw a ________ today!

I thought it would be neat to have a thread dedicated to real life "exotic" automobiles we encounter.

Today I passed an Aston Martin DB9. I "blew" by him in my TL-S (he was actually talking on the phone ).

Spotted an antique Bentley (mid-late 40's) in immaculate condition this past Sunday on the way to church. The steering wheel was on the right side. It looked much like this photo except it was a hardtop.

It depends. I work in Greenwiwch and if I'm driving on Route 1 (those of you familiar with Southwestern CT may know the area) I see all the nice dealerships - Ferarri, Aston Martin, Porche, Maybachs (I sat in and the dealer said they had 12 coming in and all work sold - not bad for a car that starts at $350,000). In fact, right next to the Greenwich train station there is an exotic car dealer who sells the all. I drool when I get off the train.

In Springfield, Mo. we have some of the largest Exotic car brokers in the country. Team Motorsports, Motorcars International, Premier Sports Cars, etc. Some of the detail work for Motorcars International is done in the back of the local VW dealership, so most of the time, you can see a few exotics. Check out their inventory on their website at www.motorcars-intl.com and click Springfield, Mo. They have 2 saleen s7's in stock, but I have not had the pleasure to personally druell over one of them as of yet.

On a side note, a few weeks ago, I saw a 2004 Lambroghini Gallardo in yellow pearl outside a pizza joint. Unbelieveable!

Cars are awesome

So you can just go in an exotic car dealership and sit on any car you want just like any other dealerships?? I doubt I can do that here . There is Porsche dealer and an exotic car dealer (forgot the name) near my place (about a 10 minute walk) and I've never even think of going in there because I don't have the money too. My MDX will look like a beater in their parking lot

I dont know if I can walk into the Ferrari dealership and sit in a car for fun - they would probably ask me to leave. LOL!!! But, there are two Ferrari (SP?) dealers in Greenwich and one is next to the train station. Nothing better than a nice yellow or red prancing horse staring at you. Love it!!!

If you are ever in South Florida, try driving around (or just park) if you want to see older exotics. Have seen DB4s, prewar Mercedes convertibles, ditto Rolls and Bentley, actual original 300SL roadster, Packard Caribbean, etc, all driving down the road or parked on Worth Avenue. Much better than a museum!

Anything worth doing, is worth doing to excess.

Isn't it bad enough that about 50 babes/thongs are being added to the site hourly now w/o them being put in threads like this?

I was on the site at 9:12 CST this morning and come back at 12:11 CST to find 155 New Posts - most of which are "babes" How can anyone post 125+ babe pics in 3 hours

The old .org ain't what it used to be

I know hammermdx was busy last night. Everytime I refreshed the hottest babes thread, there was another babe picture! Not that I'm complaining, just observing...
