    I wish I had a camera with me yesterday: I saw a silver M-B 300SL Gullwing in the morning, and a black Porsche 959 in the afternoon.

    A couple days before that, filling up my car at my usual gas station, the BMW test contingent was there: an E92 M3 all cladded up in plastic disguise, a 1-series 5-door, and a Mini.

    Not even a camera phone, I would have loved to see both the SL and the 959.

    Someone more knowledgeable than I will have to identify this Alfa.

    The SL lives in town, so I should be able to catch it at some point. It was the first time I've seen the 959. I was walking, and both cars were stopped, so it would have been easy to get a good shot.

    It is a 1900 Zagato Super Sprint (SSZ), circa 1957.

    The Z3Coupe is on the way to become a classic. Gute deutsche Konstrukteursarbeit

    Damn, that's one nice Alfa.

    While I think I may see more new expensive cars with more frequency here in SoFLA, I think Tokyo has us beat when it comes to perfectly preserved / restored classics.

    A Quattroporte Sport GT is still a relatively rare sight here. So is a BMW M5, strangely enough.
    I saw two of those Maseratis in Shanghai.

    EB 110 - very exotic

    One of my favorite cars growing up, along with the McLaren F1, Ferrari F40, Jaguar XJ220 and Lamborghini Diablo. Crazy fucking cars, man, crazy fucking cars.

    They are designed to melt ice caps, kill the poor, poison the water table, destroy the ozone layer, decimate indigenous wildlife, recapture the Falkland Islands and turn the entire third world into a huge uninhabitable desert.
