Question Anyone ever see any interesting cars while driving?

To kill time in traffic today (see other post) I looked at all the cars in the 4 lanes of slowly rolling traffic to see if there was another car on the road I would rather be driving. Not even close. A sea of Hondas, Toyotas, MiniVans and SUVs. Not a single sports car, unless you count a lowrider Honda with a 12" exhaust muzzle and blaring sound system. Kinda cute with all the extraneous ground effects, wings and wingdings! Hell for all I know he has twin turbos and NOS. NOT FOR ME! But all in all, very boring and pedestrian. Guess that why I drive the Boxster, always feels exciting even plugging along at 8 MPH.

Sunny! Warm! What's that? Is that my car under all that road grime, road salt and slush? Time to go back to the car wash.

Well, How about 2 Mercedes Benz new SL55 AMG on the same day? One was black in black and another was red on black. I couldn't belive it. They were so nice and the sound they made as they took off the line, sweet sounds too any motoring enthusiasts. They sounded like a souped up hot rod.
Wish I could afford one at $125k+ .

Common Lotto!

Thumbs up Interesting cars

Not really a car, but I was in traffic today behind and beside a new Hummer H2. Man, is that thing big. All you need is a 50 caliber machine gun mounted up top and you are off to Bagdad. What's the limit on Saddams?
