View Thread: The coolest car I saw today was:


Pages: [1] 2 3

mustangdriver
So I had an idea to make a thread sort of like "what music are you listening to right now" where you could list the coolest car you've seen for the day. Some days it may be something simple. Like mine for today.

The coolest car I saw today was a red Lotus Elan.


:drive:

CLK-GTR
Done up MINI Cooper. my friends car he gave me a ride home in it from school. Havent seen many cars today really.

Sia Bani
I saw 3 H2's in Tahoe.

Dreamn
Bright Yellow Lotus Esprit, :cheers:

edit: oh, and a Dinan M roadster

eric
I see alot of H2's every day. They seem to be incredibly popular in these parts

TURBOZ
Dodge stealth twin turbo, no wait, that was mine. hehe. Only seen vettes today. Rode up on a viper yesterday on i-10 though.

Sia Bani
Ya, in Los angeles, H2's are everywhere. But in northern Cali, you really don't see them much, so they're still something to look at for me.

87 Supra Turbo
Thanks to the 10" of snow we got last night and this morning the coolest thing I've seen so far is a snow plow. :tahoe:

lightstorm
I was driving home and saw a shiny well kept BMW 850. I like.

TURBOZ
I saw the oscar mayer wiener mobile at lunch...:surprised dude, thats one big hot dog....:tahoe:

scubie02
Today? My wrx--its a slow day for cars...

Rotary Boy
a forties era willys roadster sedan, fire engine red, white wall tires. it looked in awesome condition.

masestylez
A new H2 (rare here) and nothin really else.

mrgokou
and incredibly customized red, possibly 2001 Mistsubishi eclipse. I even felt the heavy vibrations form the subs about a block away.

AngelicOUTLAW
A viper and an 82 Vette, both very nice rides :)

SLP Addict
I havent left my house today, so, 96 dodge grand caravan

scubie02
Yeah, somebody's got a yellow H2 around here now--pretty unusual for my neck of the woods, considering the closest dealers are both an hour and a half and two hours away.

There aren't alot of super interesting cars around my area most of the time. Lots of camaros and mustang's, of course, some of which are nice, but they are so common that its hard to get too excited. There are a fair amount of vettes, but thats sort of the same deal. A few 350z's that to me are more interesting due to the small numbers at this point.

Surprisingly, though I live in the sticks, I see a fair amount of interesting xars on the little highway right on the way to my house--people from the City or Jersey passing through. I saw a 350z when they were very first out, and I think it was the same day I saw one of those new Aston Martin's I think like in the Bond film. Sure looked like it anyway. That was probably the most interesting car I've seen anytime lately.

911GT2
Probably a white S6. But I see it every day cause it's in the school parking lot.

Lotus
745i, its winter so all ther nice cars stay in :(

ksaile
I saw a wrangler Rubicon, but that was about it.

FabUlous
two words about gloucester: Uncle Ben's...:ghey:

CLK-GTR
AC Schnitzer 3-series or a new CL600.

Sia Bani
Oh, on the way up to Tahoe, I saw a cl600 with the plates "Ibyapts", which I thought was weak.

But I did see the new sl55 last time I was in LA, and I couldn't help think of Blake when I told my dad it only comes in automatic.

mustangdriver
The coolest car I saw today was probably a basic C5

slow day :(

CLK-GTR
i forgot that yesterday i saw a silver 360.

I feel your pain!

eric
I havent seen anything that interesting in the past few days. Maybe an SL55 or a brand new M3 convert, but thas about it. This summer I worked for the county newspaper delivering papers to people who didn't get their papers. The area I worked was the richest part of the county, and the richest part of jersey, and I would always see nice cars. I think in one day I saw 6 ferarri's and a lamborghini. I remeber being stopped that one traffic light in particular and I saw an M3, and 911 Turbo, and a Ferarri within 60 seconds of each other.

masestylez
Nice paper route. :D

eric
It really was, plus it was $10/hr + $0.32/ per mile. And I only had to deliver about 5 papers on an average day, cuz I only had to do the complaints.

CLK-GTR
another CL500/600. im not sure which because it had AMG badging, but it wasnt an AMG so im guessing at a 500. i also saw a new SL55. god i love that car.

mustangdriver
The SL55 is beautiful!!! I love that car.

Coolest car I've seen today was probably my buddy's 350Z

k6kicker
old school talson tsi awd doing donuts in the parking lot :tahoe:

Michitakem
Red Suzuki Aerio SX, with giant rims, on the freeway. :D

Rotary Boy
a red orange TVR tuscan

me and my cousin were just getting lunch and he was driving, anyways I was busy eating a burrito and trying to make sure not to drop any burning hot bean&Cheese in his car, when all of a sudden he totally yells "bahhh hold on" I dropped the burrito in the bag half expecting an impact or somthing, but no, instead the warning yell was to inform me of the upcomming U-e that we were about to do. just as I was about to ask my cousin why he felt the need to rip off a handbrake turn in fairly busy traffic I sported the strangest taillights ahead of us. then I spoted the color change paint. My cousin rightfully gunned it rushing up behind the Tuscan to get a better look at it, we stayed with it for about 3 blocks before we were able to get next to it my cousin then honked and the driver turned to look at us(some muscular looking black dude) my cousin rolled down his window and gave a thumbs up and a "fucking sweet TVR dude!" the guy responded with a thanks and a nice WRX. we then tryed to get alittle ahead to see what the car looked like from the front but the drive thought we were trying to pull on him and he made that alittle difficult, I think at about 55 he relised we just wanted a look and he slowed alittle so we could see the headlights with out having to speed up to much. car looked fucking sweet, and it sounded badass too. I have no idea thier were any in the states though

man it was cool

Dreamn
TVR's :clap: :clap:

must have scared the guy shitless though, he hears a squeal of tires and sees a WRX baring down on him. I'm surprised this didn't turn into another episode of "World's Wildest", :D

eric
Thats fucking nuts.
TVR's are the ultimate

Rotary Boy

I know, I about jumped outta my own skin when I relized what it was

CLK-GTR
oh damn yeah i forgot. One of the local nightclub owners has a peppermint greenish/light bluey flip tone TVR Tuscan. I see it every day though so its not something that sticks in my memory anymore. I never knew you had new TVR's in the States yet though.

CLK-GTR
that just reminded me. one of the lads i know had to pay the owner of it nearly £500 the other week. He was drunk and pissed off, so he put a brick through the windscreen of the TVR. The owner got him and made him pay.

CLK-GTR
Did you catch the engine note on it btw? Sounds like nothing else.

Rotary Boy

we don't, thats why I was so stunned to see one. you are more likly to see a skyline stateside than you are a TVR.

if you own either of them you are going to great lengths to aquire yourself a rare performance car. or you eat way to much rallys

Rotary Boy

yes I did. A rich mechanical songbird

mrgokou
jesus rotary, u are so frigin luck to see a TVR. There about 13 in america, that whay i hear. And about 47 legal skylines, so your chances of seeing that was very very very much slim. So slim that u might not se that again in a lifetime.

Rotary Boy

there are more skylines stateside than that. I have seen 12(motorex showroom) at a time, and then 6 at various different amateur motorsport events so I am certain that there are more.

as for the TVR's I doubt I will ever see one again, in fact I would be suprised if that 13 had made it over here. and unless TVR starts importing them again I doubt I will ever see another one

CLK-GTR
i think there is a chance you might start seeing them in the next few years. TVR is finally waking up to the fact that you guys want them, and might be bothered to do something about it unlike before.

eric
Yea but then TVR's will be loaded down with all of the crap needed for american regulations such as bumpers and air bags, and all that junk

Rotary Boy

and they will have the driver sitting in a non rallys-drive through posistion, the greatist loss of all

SLP Addict
They should allow rare exotics like that to be left alone and sold here.

mustangdriver
Damn Eric! That's fuckin cool. Truly a rare sighting.

I hear that, the car had wyoming plates so it is concievable that I could one day happen across it again. but untill that happens I am chalking this up with other awesome once in a life time events

masestylez
Hawaii has a few I know of because I have friends over there, and they are VERY loose on what they won't title. My friend has a Mazda AZ-1 rotary converted and they didn't think twice about it.

Lotus
ive seen a few TVR's, just none of them have been in canada or the states. THey are truly amazing cars. If you ever get a chance to she a morgan areo 8 take it, they are beutiful cars.

CLK-GTR
the morgans are ok, but ive never been fond of them. anyway, today was full of nice cars, but none really special:

Same CL500(?) as yesterday, stunning black S-Class with blacked out windows and big AMG alloys. Was badged as a 320 CDI though. Saw a ~500bhp Sierra Cosworth and ~400bhp Escort Cosworth. A Lotus Elise 111S, and a brand new 745i (these are beginning to grow on me). A Porsche 911 Carrera too.

eric
The only Morgan I really like its the Morgan Aero 8. That is one of the few cars with "retro" styling that is done really well. You've gotta give them respect for building cars in such low quantities for such a long time, it takes alot of dedication.

Rotary Boy
oh yeah I forgot to mention this, I see a white '03 SVT cobra convertable almost everyday, the guy who owns it lives really close to me, not exactly a TVR, but it's a pretty cool car nonetheless

A-Tech
howd that burrito end up?

Rotary Boy
in the bag, actually kept it's shape pretty well, so I just had to use my hands and sppon burrito guts into my mouth, messy? yes, but I was really hungry

eric
Burritos are addictive. I dont know if any of you guys have Chipotle's around you, but they make the greatest burritoes I have ever had. There is one about a block and a half from where I live and I eat there atleast every other day.

I must say, Supra, whenever you post something, if I just look at your avatar, I think you're pissed off. It's kind of misleading, to tell the truth. :fro:

The coolest car I saw today... Has to be that Civic with the F1 wing coming out of the donut shop, to which I just shook my head from side to side.

Oh... You actually mean coolest, huh? Well... Not to be biased, but today, the coolest car I saw was my own. That happens a lot around here, unless I see my neighbor's Corvette retirement gift to herself.

RSXDriver
Now, if I would've posted this a few months ago, I could've said I saw a Murciélago heading north on 101 as I was going south toward Santa Barbara. But, alas, I didn't and can't.

masestylez
All the snow melted here, so all the nice cars are back on the streets, highly modded Silver M5 seen today.

87 Supra Turbo
Still crappy here, therefore the coolest thing I saw was a jacked up Silverado that makes around 400hp.

Sia Bani
Mase, what did the modded m5 have on it?

masestylez
I know it's chipped and has some Dinan engine and exhaust parts, but I met the chick so long ago I don't remember all what she has. The outside is really nice though, the front bumper kit is slick as hell, its got nice side skirts and a matching back bumper kit. The taillights are by far the coolest though, they are clear (call it rice but they look nice.) with like three red dots across it. I like it mucho.

Sia Bani
Chick, huh? How old?

CLK-GTR
i went out last night and saw that club owners TVR again. Oh yeah i saw a WRX STi although thats nothing special over here. Thats all for the time being. Although i did see a police riot van in a little too closer proximity for comfort :D

masestylez
Edit: She's like 19 or 20 I think. Pretty hot too. Kind of weird if you ask me. <onlyguyscanread>Hot girls+nice car=good but usually here its Nice car+ugly fat evil girl=why?</onlyguyscanread>

87 Supra Turbo
I saw an Eclipse GSX yesterday. Since Mitsu didn't start selling up here till this year they're extremely rare. I like the rear end on it better than the Talon; seems much cleaner.

Dude, that's perfect for the car!

911GT2
I see an Eclipse every morning (weird because Eclipses were never sold in NS) and I susually see an SL500 on the way home from school. Also a really weird/cool green-yellow colour M3.

CLK-GTR
not much since last time, a purple lotus elise is about it. Oh ya, I saw an original Audi Quattro turbo too.

RSXDriver
I saw some sort of Diablo-looking, orangish-colored car today. Probably was a Diablo, since it was really loud.

Low point: A Caravan with a fart pipe and bling blings with kids inside and the attitudes and rap music to match.

lightstorm
Saw a ///M6-something-something. I forgot the other two digits, but it looked really clean and shiny.

911GT2
Probabaly a 635CSi

Most common of the sixes.

Still never seen one myself.

masestylez
I have once, auto auction, I didn't know wtf it was until a long while later. I thought it was fake because I never heard of a 6* BMW before

CLK-GTR
my uncle used to have a 635CSi. damn fool left it to rot in his driveway. dont know where it is now.

911GT2
They made very few 6 series. Basically a 5 series coupe isn't it?

Or maybe a 7 coupe...

lightstorm
Yep, saw it again. ///M635CSi. Too bad it got a parking ticket . . . that driver should check the curbs.

You shouldn't have let me drive your car, I'm hooked now! That and your office is across the hall :tongue:

dcquietman
Watch it Qualude Driver!! I know where you live and the cars that you drive. By all thats holy I will come to your parking lot and rip out all the coil packs in your grocery getter!!

mustangdriver
hahaha! Please do, it'll save the Volkswagen service dept some time* :D

*:fyi: the coil packs in a lot of 1.8T engines have been failing, and I think mine just went out today

dcquietman
Unless you're the short asian guy across the hall...I don't know what you're talking about being right across from me. Admiting you have a problem is the first step towards a solution...Repeat after me....

Dcquietman's 350 is much better than my Qualude.....

mustangdriver
Duh

dcquietman
Now that we've got that clear...we can work on changing that signature pic....:bootyshak

CLK-GTR
a 911 targa and a boxster S and a WRX STi is about the extent of my car spotting today.

mustangdriver
You buying me a new car???

dcquietman
I don't think so...gotta ask wifey for that one....I was almost shot for buying this one and I'm not even married!!

mustangdriver
And you haven't told the future in-laws yet :tongue:

dcquietman
Yeah...You'll know when I tell'em when I'm a a few feet shorter than I am now....

dcquietman
Qualude Driver...here's your new sig...:fyi:

mustangdriver
Nice job matching the font! Remind me not to teach you any more photoshop tricks...

mustangdriver
Here's your new avatar by the way since you were so nice to make a new signature image for me!

dcquietman
Ahem...if I was...I sure wouldn't buy a small, inexpensive car.....

dcquietman
But you might have a point...lemme czech. Now what did I do with that ruler.....

Nogaro Nitwit
Yay. Coilpack failure! Welcome to the club.

dcquietman
I'd have to say a Silver A4 1.8T......with a modified grill

At least you got stuck at a cool place when your 2nd one went - Detroit Auto Show!

That's the coolest car you saw today? Man, slow day :tongue:

dcquietman
Yeah..tell me about it....it had mod'ed exhaust, and some goofy gage mounted in the middle of the drivers side right hand vent :drive:

Nogaro Nitwit
Alright you damn Ricer! Time to kick some ass!

mustangdriver
Man, you got a good view of that car. Almost sounds like you knew the driver!

:fro:

dcquietman
I dunno...I got a real good look as I was passing him....

mustangdriver
Funny lookin guy? Kinda tall?

Nogaro Nitwit
Probably because another coilpack failed

dcquietman
Ricer? I'll take another shot of Sake as your cram more 'kraut in that schnitzel-mobile!!

Sia Bani

That goofy guage is the boost guage. He's probably chipped the 1.8t as well. DominicnS4 has the guage mounted exactly where the middle air vent would be, it looks pretty good cosmeticly. Any audi a4/s4 driver that visits audiworld and wants to add a boost guage would put it right there, smack in the middle.

Nogaro Nitwit
Sake is for wusses. Jagermeister is where it is at!

Hehehe, yeah that's what it is. Looks pretty slick too. The three of us know each other pretty well.

Actually it is not in the center vent, but the left most in the center cluster. Makes it look a little better in my opinion. And yes I am Audiworlder too.

dcquietman
Actually the gauge looks really good...there's nothing like talking trash with locals!!

I'm just psyched to have some locals to talk trash with!!! (besides eric rxb at UMD)

East Coast Power baby!!! :fro:

Sia Bani
So you guys at audiworld don't always copy one another? Am I reading about creativity?? just joking...

But ya, I always poke fun at dominicns4 because in LA I see his s4 everywhere...they all have the m3 wings/lips on it too now!

hey will, looks like you brought some freinds huh?

welcome guys
and BTW, nice audi and 350Z

dcquietman
Thanks man. It was tough parting with my 3.2CL but damn..I love this car!!

Nogaro Nitwit
No trouble for me parting with my old 97 Pontiac Grand Prix. No more American cars for me. There is no comparison now with the Audi.

dcquietman
I have to say...the Audi is one of the most solid vehicles I test drove and I throughly impressed. Just didn't have the "sportiness" I was looking for..

The B6 platform A4s are definitely not as sporty as the B5 platform. The newer ones need a little body work before it starts looking good. Too much body cladding. dcquietman, just wait till I get the new suspension on and you will like it alot.

dcquietman
We'll see...I thought the Quattro I test drove handled well....I'll look foward to seeing the difference

eric
east side till we die from it

masestylez
I claim Hawaii bitches. :D That or Seattle. Anyway the best car I saw today was jacked up jeep and a riced out Honda which the owner told me it puts out "150 horsepower man, AT THE WHEELS". Slow day......and i'm in a bad mood.

CLK-GTR
today was quite good, saw a TVR Tuscan, Subaru Impreza 22B and STi, a 911 GT3 with awesome flip tone purple paint. And my favourite of all, a bayside blue Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec

Rotary Boy
the coolest car I saw today was a 25th anniversary countach
we know the owner and she brought the car to have new tires put on it

911GT2
Probably an S4. Love those things.

01 civic
SL 500

CLK-GTR
CL55 AMG. R33 GTS. ermmmm thats all really special i think.

911GT2
I wish I saw Skylines here...

eric
I think we all do

CLK-GTR
saw a gorgeous R34 GT-R on wednesday. god that car looked sweet.

87 Supra Turbo
Today was beautiful until about 8 tonight. I saw:

2 350z's red and silver. Can't tell what model they were.
2 911 Carerra 4's. Both hard tops. Very sexy.
Ferrari Testarossa. Never thought I'd see one around here.
BMW Z4
BMW M3. Lots of those around here.
Stealth R/T. Very sexy pearl white.
And believe it or not, an Oldsmobile Alero w/ racing strips and a big as Touring Car spoiler. LOSER.

Now I'm heading out for a date with one of the girls at work. If you don't hear from me until tomorrow be really really happy for me. :boobies:

87 Supra Turbo
Oh, and a Stingray. mmmmmmmmm

FabUlous
oh yeah i saw a white porche carrera like mid to late 80s beautiful condition...........it was sweet then later that nite i saw another white porche prolly 95-98...............damn i love those cars

CLK-GTR
i saw an original Porsche 911T yesterday i think it was. like the very first 911.

Rotary Boy
today was a good day

-I saw a cool viper today, it had that weird graphite/grey/ silver colored paint(anyone know what i am talking about)
- a black NSX, not the old, kind but the new (I guess 03 model) with the headlights that look like they got stolen off a prelude, it was a good lookin car though.
-and last but not least I saw a sandy colored bently continental T, it was parked outside my docters office(had to get my shoulder re-x-rayed) very cool car, I walked over to it and it ws very nice, good color too.

my cousin told me that yesterday while he was in denver he got stuck in traffic with an SRT-10 behind him(pretty cool)

CLK-GTR
you mentioning bentley reminds me. last night i was in the ghetto area of my city, and parked up all together i saw a brand new Continental T, a 90's Rolls Royce of some sort, and a new S-Class. dont know what they were doing there, and wasnt gonna ask either.

911GT2
RB, can you drive with your injury?

Rotary Boy
yeah I could if I had, to, but I would have to take my hand off the wheel to shift and it hurts to hit the gas pedal with my foot in a airbrace

so I have had people chaufering me around.


got everyone beat with what I just saw
black GT2,
I know the guy(have met him before at 2nd creek)
he was at Conaco at the same time me and my cousin were there so i chatted with him for a second or two, damn fine car.

87 Supra Turbo
Damn, I bet he must have been like a kid waiting for christmas until the GT2 arrived.

Lucky bastard.

masestylez
Ferrari 512

CLK-GTR
this will sound very stuipid. but last night i went in a Daewoo Matiz. i think it was a Matiz. I want one now. Some of you know i nhave a friend with an F40 that ive ridden in. The Matiz sounds identical to it. its a 0.7litre 3 cylinder, but the whine sounds the same as the F40's transmission growl and turbo whine, and the engine note is identical to the V8.

SLP Addict
Yesterday, i saw a 1960 lotus type 14, and i also saw a trailer queen Viper GTSR, Red and white stripes, it was being hauled on the back of a trailer, big ass blower, and a exhasut coming out the side that look like it was stolen off of a tractor trailor!

01 civic
I saw a Honda (I think), thats shaped like a box. Looks alike a small version of G500, can anyone tell me what it was. It looks like an electric car. :?:

mustangdriver
Was it the new Element?

http://www.autoweek.com/specials/galleries/element/0040.jpg

01 civic
Yeah, it was. I saw it on the web before, but i thought it was only sold in Japan.

mustangdriver
It's pretty new here. I kinda like some elements of it (whoa, bad pun). I wish it was all one color, I don't like the two-tone. I saw a pic of an all black one at some car show. Looked pretty sweet.

01 civic
They should of made it into an electric car. It looks cool, I like it, expect its not an electric. ;)

eric
Red Rx-7 with plates GOODRX
I thought it was pretty funny

Rotary Boy
saw a local awesome car that I havn't seen in a while, black murcialago with a weird exhuast(the strange quad tip ala zonda) it was flyinglow on the free way. me and my wife got passed by that car the first time we saw it a few months ago, supra couldn't catch it.

CLK-GTR
Saw an SL55 AMG and an orange Murcielago. the murci was a disgusting colour. it really didnt look good. The SL55 on the other hand, i didnt realise at first, but one of my best mates was in the passenger seat. Oh my god does that thing sound and look awesome. I want that car so much.

masestylez
I saw another nice Blue M3

Apple_Jacks
cool thread.

I saw the same black '03 NSX that RB saw a few days ago. NSX's look awesome, kinda have a big ass on them, but they still are the fuckin shit when it comes to hondas.

SLP Addict

Hey I've seen that car!

It's got Va plates. The car is for sale now, the guy is asking $11k (prelude replacement???)

mustangdriver
Interesting. I have considered an older used car (ala Supra, RX-7, 300ZX). Just not convinced it's a reliable choice for my daily driver yet. If I blew a Turbo, that would be expensive.

eric
I think that it's actually not the TT model, just NA

masestylez
I went out to my Uncle's and checked out the neighbors new Bentley again

CLK-GTR
saw an M5 with sweet wheels on. Saw about 3 brand new WRX STi's, an Impreza P1, and the best of the bunch, a Chrysler Sebring convertible. First and probably last one ive ever seen.

87 Supra Turbo
I saw a sweet british racing green Triumph TR8 today. I also saw about three different 944's, couldn't tell if they were turbo's or not. Also saw a 928.

87 Supra Turbo
I get to see a bunch of Sebring convertibles here. You however get to see many more cool and exciting cars on your side of the pond though. I can't wait for the day we get to see an Elise or VX220 over here.

eric
I saw a white supra TT today

87 Supra Turbo
Ya know it's odd, I've only ever seen one MkIV supra in Calgary. I know there are a few but I've only ever seen this one maroon one, not sure if it's a TT or not though.

FabUlous

in america? speaking of skylines, i havent seen the local R34 GT-R for a couple of weeks now. but i can always go see a R33 2.5T which lives down the road. see it almost every day. Seeing ALOT of new WRX STi's around, and theres two Impreza P1's i see regularly.

87 Supra Turbo
I saw an X/9 yesterday. I didn't even know they came to Canada.

lexus1581
RT-10 and 3RD GEN SUPRA

The coolest car today... must be my 1:18 scale of the Morgan Aero 8! :)

Rotary Boy
lets see, since th elast time I posted I have spent 2 days at a BMW track event.

so here goes for what I got to take a look at
•one of the few original BMW 3.0 CSL's in full touring car getup.
•about 30 spec E30 BMW's(ya know specc Miata and spec Rx-7?, well now there is Spec E30)
•2 Dinan M5's
•a E26 M1
•2 E30 M3 EVO III's
•M5's from all three generations
• a tuner M3 with a 7 series engine under the hood. it was fast, but it understeered.
•a heaping helping of M3's from all generations, some stock, some very far from it.
•more Z3's and Z4 than you could shake a stick at. I now really like the Z4, I got to teach one of the owners of one a few tips on the side. and in the process I got to take a few laps in the Z4. it seems like the car could weigh alittle less, but overall it was decent. with different tires and brakes it would make a fun track car. I love the shifter to death.
•a bunch of ///M coupes some stock, some made me jump up and down and clap.
•a ton of 2002's mostly turbos. some were stupid fast.
• also there was a decent number of 8 series. anybody remember those? a few of them present were the V12 models.

hope I didn't leave anything out.very cool couple of days

87 Supra Turbo
I would soooooo love to have a nice black 8 series.

I also saw a black NSX on friday night, what a cool car.

Rotary Boy
actually there wasn't a black one there. wierd as that seems. there were 2 sapphire(sp?) V12's and a maroon V12, then some other colors amoung the regular V8 ones

lexus1581
RX330, NSX, 2004 Grand Prix, and tons of H2's

FabUlous
'69 jag XKE convert...........awesome condition, the guy who was sellin the escort (see "deal of the century...?") had it in his garage in front of an old bug


he also had an a4 1.8T quattro

ahahn
I saw a Ferrari 355 the other day. It was the targa version, not sure of the exact model name. When I first saw it, it was parked, so I went up to check it out. It was red with black leather inside. Six speed gated shifter, not the F1 tranny. Then I saw the car later traveling down the road. Swung a U turn real quick so I could tail him for a bit. The exhaust note was truly provocative. The car ended up turining into Saint Bonaventure University, so some lucky college student has a father with a nice garage somewhere.

FabUlous
wow.......ive only seen a lambo diablo, thats the only real expensive exotic ive seen, although the M5 and random porsches now and then make up for it :pd:

masestylez
I saw my own 320i as I got it back yesterday

ahahn
I see my own car all the time, but it will never be the coolest car that I see.

I saw a new KIA Rio hatch today. Awesome! ;)

kak
How can a KIA be awesome?

If you see the little winking guy --> ;)

It usually means "just kidding"

kak
Sorry, didn't notice that it was a "wink" and not a "smilie" :)

mustangdriver
hehehe I didn't either at first :) I thought maybe he had just gone mad haha

kak
You're not alone thinking that. That's why I asked that question!

eric
The blue smiles bite. <cheapshot> I mean I know if I had the authority I'd change the smilies to a better looking set </cheapshot> :D

mustangdriver
I agree. They were a SiaBani-addition :D

kak
The coolest was a electric blue Mini Cooper with 18 inch wheels! :)

I have a 1988 Pontiac Bonneville. Think of a large ugly 4 door sedan and you got it. But, it was free, and doesn't require full coverage insurance, so it is fairly easy on the wallet. I am starting to look around for a Nissan 240SX or an RX-7 for autocrosses though.

kak
I really don't know what a 1988 Pontiac Bonneville is... :) I have a 94 Audi 100 2.6E Avant, but would really want a SEAT Leon 20VT 4 Top Sport or a Alfa Romeo 147 2.0 Selespeed! :)

I haven't seen any new Vipers or Mach1's yet, and the 348 was way down south by the Coleseum. The best places to spot the cool cars here are on 4th st and 17th ave. That area's just crazy. Occasionally you can see a Ferrari 550 outside the Bantrel building on 6th st and 6th ave.


Yesterday I saw a nice new 911 Turbo tearing things up on the freeway.

Saw a Ferrari 355 Spyder the other day. Forgot to put it in my own thread :D
