So, today after I got off work I decided that instead of running out for dinner right away I'd go home first and let the dogs out.  I do that and then go out to grab some Chinese food (sweet and sour chicken, China's greatest invention since Fired Wonton) and I'm walking down the street when I hear a loud revving noise tjat overbears the sound of my music.  Being worried that a helicopter may be about to crash on me, I turn and behold a great sight.  I immediately switch my iPhone to camera mode and start snapping pictures.  I got about less than half of the beauties because they were moving quite quickly (with a police escort) and even though my iPhone showed me getting proper pics when I went through them later I found a bunch had snapped a second too late.  so, without further ado, I present the beauties:

Upon looking at the first image my mind immediately said "Infernus" and then I realized I've been playing too much GTA Vice City.

I have no real comment on the cars themselves. I'm not much of a car guy. Couldn't tell you what most of them were. But I didn't know the iphone took such nice pictures. Hmm.

And after checking google, I am wrong.

there used to be trees in those holes.  I believe both had close encounters with cars and they never replaced them.

Wrong that it's a Scaglietti or wrong in the spelling? I would think you could see the horse on the grill, even at that resolution if it were a ferrari. Looking to see if there's an older version that was without or something.

Yep that's definitely it! I figured you'd be able to see the hood emblem at least, but guess not due to the resolution on that crappy iPhone slywink.

When I saw those pictures I started thinking what'd be the best way to carjack them and avoid the traffic cop afterwards.

I think I've been playing too much GTA.

there was one, but when it was going by I was dodging a group of 3 drunken idiots who were barging down the sidewalk.  All I ended up getting was the last quarter of the car.

Yeah I was surprised to see the BMW.  At least for track events, Porsche events are a bit more fun in a way because of the variety of cars out there.  Ferrari events tend to be just Ferrari's with a spattering - maybe - of other high end exotics.  Reason being, or so I am told, is that a Porsche (or other car) driver might decide to push harder to see what he can do vs a Ferrari and vice versa - typically to bad result.  I like the Porsche events where you find a Ferrari or two, but also Lotus, Mini Coopers, Porsche, ect... etc...

I clicked on this thread, then noticed it was by CeeKay, and imagined the horror it'd contain.

It actually is a pretty cool thread...

And that Z3 absolutely does not belong there.  Really, as the rest of the cars are supercars, neither do the Porsche or Viper (though they have a lot more reason to be there than the Z3 does).

Cars all look pretty much the same to me, and I just don't get people's love for them.  Of course, I also don't see the need for home decorations, and I have no ability to envision landscaping improvements or work with tools.  So, it's likely I just have no soul or man card.
