    Nice Aston -- I was once test driving an Exige at a place that specialized in Astons, and a nice V8 pulled up along side of me. Un be lieveable.

    Today, being a nice day, I saw a yellow F355, a red Countach that's stunning and a white Bently Conti GT.

    Yesterday morning I saw a black R8 with a Monaco plate in the small town I live.

    I got to drive a friend's 1991 red NSX yesterday. What a totally sweet car that I'd take over almost any car made today. The feedback from the unassisted steering is something else. If only I had another garage spot ...

    You can pick one up pretty cheaply these days. Why don't you go ahead and give into temptation?[​IMG]

    This morning I pulled up behind a Jaguar XJ6C. It was a real beauty that I wanted to photograph, but it pulled away before I could grab my camera. Beautiful car with a silver body, black top, and red interior. It is so rare to see a vintage two-door XJ6. It was the first one I've seen in many, many years. Seeing the car made my commute very special this morning.

    Some of them have had their vinyl roofs removed.

    I don't think I saw a vinyl roof on this one, so it may have been removed. It seemed to be in great condition although there was a bit of fading and dullness to the silver paint.

    I saw a nice-looking DB9 last week at the mall back home. Snapped a pic, I'll upload it soon.

    ^ saw this on the street a few weeks back - must have been someone testing it. Looked pretty mean and viscious

    The new SL definitely has presence when seen IRL, and is much more aggressive than the previous one, though I think the previous one is prettier.
