    Not to slight the 507 in your first photo or the 356A, but the black Mercedes 300 SLR is really lovely with those original headlamps and the knock-on Rudge wheels.

    No slight taken at all. I had whiplash as I did not know which car to look at first. There were so many other fine cars on display, but the show was wrapping up, and everyone was driving the cars off before I could take more pictures. The aural stimulation then was an event by itself.

    Are those leather straps holding down the hood of the Porsche?

    Those are two beautiful cars.

    I saw one of those Maseratis the other day. It was all black, including the logo on the front grill. Cool looking car. Owned by one of the Arizona Cardinals players.

    Absolutely! The leather straps are fantastic.

    I saw them on a Ferrari 250GTO (drool) a few years back and fell in love with them on vintage cars.

    Someone's new Rolls Royce convertible was parked with the top down in Indianapolis today. It was parked in the alley beside St. Elmo's. Beautiful car, much nicer IRL than in the pics; it was the first one I'd seen. I didn't have my cell with me, so I couldn't get a pic.

    One of the weirder sights in the Boston area is the Aston Martin dealership on a crumbling backroad between a PetCo, railroad tracks and a used car lot in Waltham. Truly out of place.

    I've driven by there many times. Definitely out of place.
