    Andym's vacation pictures

    here are a some pictures I took while I was on vacation last week. I went to Tucson, Az, then drove to San Diego, Ca, and while I was in Cali, I went to Symbolic Motors in La Jolla. It was pretty amazing, but anyways. Jsut look, you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Yeah, it's real.....














    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    wow great pics! & yea, that S65 with the green emblems is hideous!

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    Steve Saleen sure knows how to put a car together nice pics

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    Nice pics Andy, thx for posting.

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    Thanks for the pics Andy.
    You look pretty happy sitting in that Saleen.

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    Thats the problem with living here in So Cal (especially in the LA area where I live)...Everything, when it comes to cars, is almost common. What Andy saw in the showroom is seen on the road daily. I think that the only exotics that make my head turn are an Enzo, an F1 or an S7. I marvel at the first 2, and throw up over the S7!

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    That must be a pretty nice problem to have.

    I know what you mean, but to nowhere near the same extent. I used to think that the Ferrari 360 was a very special, exotic car, until I started to see one driving around almost every day last summer. After a while, I got accustomed to seeing them often, and although it was still a gorgeous car, I just didn't get excited when I saw one anymore.

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    Thanks Andy! Very nice shots!


    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    Nice pics Andy,. Your second pic, of the Lambos, is my new wallpaper

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    I find that grin/smirk you have on your face in the saleen, hilarious. Only a supercar will do that to ya.

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures

    Very true. You should see the other pic I have of me in it. I jsut look like a starstruck [censored] near it. I'll post them sometime.

    EDIT:

    Ok, i didn't even want to show this, but anyways. I just look so dumb.


    By the way, the Saleen is the most difficult car to get out of. The Elise is a breeze compared to this thing. It took about 30 seconds just to get out of it, but that might have been because I really didn't want to get out....

    Let's not exaggerate .....outside of LA's Westside and NwptCoast, cars in LA aren't all that different from cars in Cleveland/Chicago/any other major US city, except they are older on average and more likely to be driven by an uninsured driver....

    And even on Westside/NwptCoast, there's an amazing preponderance of used-looking 360s/SL500s/996Cabs w/tinted windows, aftermkt wheels and dealer lic plate frames from a difft marque .....<1 yo 430s/65s/996TTS/other $150K+ cars are an uncommon sight in any city in world, despite many optimistic claims by exuberant fans of various towns.....I'd argue mark of any region is the quality of top 1-2% of cars seen commuting on a rainy Mon/Tu, rather than cars seen on a sunny Sat afternoon, brought out for posing and status duty by guys who drive some <<$100K "beater" car 95% of time.....

    I know there is point to be made here...I just can't figure out what it is!

    Re: Andym's vacation pictures
