Is this normal

So on the drive to work this morning I paid a little more attention to the surrounding rides since I wasn't in a rush...here's a small count:

3 Cayanne
2 Cayanne Turbo
1 Cayanne Turbo S
Mercedes E55 AMG
An aarray and assortment of 911's

This was a 30 mile drive from San Clemente to Irvine using the toll-road, 5 and 55 fwy's

Not Normal

That is not normal unless you live in a very wealthy part of town.

Here is my count:

Porsche = 0
Mercedes = 0
BMW = 1
Honda = lots
Jeeps = lots
Ford = lots
Pimped out Integra = 1
Cars with Duct tape = 3

This is what I see on the way to the train station (public transportation), so that might help to explain part of it.

That sounds pretty normal to me for any extended stretch of Southern California highways as you describe. Especially the toll road (73), as I find it trafficked by car enthusiasts, including myself...for obvious reasons.

good work KRATZCO the Porsche theifs the trolling the internet now have a new target in their cross hairs.

p.s.
this is not a joke or that movie with Charlie Sheen, there really are guys who devote themselves to stealing P-Cars and shipping them to far off weird places like Russia. So Cal is one of their favorite spots to pick up p-cars because their owners love to leave the tops down and the windows open.

p.s.s.
this Fk1 146 rocks! I now walkaround with a cowboy
belt with two holsters:
one with a bottle of 425 and the other with a bottle of 146.
yeah I'm cool.

What, no Bentleys?!?
Actually, given my experiences in that part of the world, I'm surprised you didn't see a few. I've begun to see several of the two-door Bentleys in my area of LA and they are breathtakingly gorgeous. Thank god they don't have a convertible model, I'd be tempted

They are coming out with a convertible model. Should be out at the end of this year. Here is a link:

I heard an odd fact that I don't know is true or not, but it sure seems right to me...

Houstonians spend, on average, 15% more than any other city on their cars.

I see a ton of MB's and BMW's every single day. I also see a ton of Navigators and pick up trucks too though.

What astounds me is the number of M3 and M5's I see nearly every single day driving around. I don't see a ton of the new style M's, but older, beautiful M's are all over the place. It's like they are all in town for an M club meeting or something.

Oh yeah, Houston has a crap-load of Mustang GT's...

LOL, so I guess you didn't pass me! I usually leave around 8:00-8:15AM from the Hermosa onramp.

I usually see a Maserati and occasionally a Bentley GT and new Aston Martin on my drive.

Hey is it OK to count the cars on the lots at MB of Laguna Niguel and South Coast Jaguar?
