    My father had a hardtop version of that car. Bought it used in late 1960's. I remember it because it was our first car with A/C and power seats front and back.

    And now for something, as Monty Python might say, completely different.

    This certainly is not mine, but seeing a BMW i8 in "real life" was unexpected. It is a shocking car to see in person. At least he had an end spot! image.jpg

    Very nice pics, Stephen! From here in Malaysia, we have little exposure to 'Murican cars so its a bit harder for me to relate :)

    Anyway, last night I decided to go drag racing...

    note the yards of plastic sheet over the back of the bike to keep the greasy little bugger form oiling the new wifey's skirts, it was known as "the amazing externally lubricated Triumph"

    There are a few of them here, every time I see it the rear end "Porsche 911 (inner silver part) being eaten by a snake (outer blue/black part with red eyes)" thing pops into my head, once you see it you can't unseen it.[​IMG]

    Ahh.. the LP700. I had the good privilege of chasing (and then test driving) the beast. Really fast, very easy to drive.... but I do prefer my cars a bit smaller, and easier to maneuver. I'd personally choose the V10. Having said that, Ferrari V12s for some reason are always easy to drive? I mean, they kinda shrink around you. Not the same for Lambos.

    Man, you guys are high-end! Definitely some hot (and cool) rides posted here!

    I tend to be more low-end. Pictured below is my '07 Ford Police Interceptor (P71) in Silver Birch which I purchased NEW in 2007 from a large Ford Fleet dealership near Chicago, IL. It was originally intended to be sold by the Ford Fleet dealership as a Law Enforcement Detective/Investigator vehicle therefore it doesn't have the spotlight option...I like the cleaner lines without the spotlight. Following purchase, I had it modified by a local Mustang performance shop with with a Ford Racing Trak-Loc LSD, Ford Racing 3.73 gears and a mild SCT performance tune. Also, I added various Ford Accessories such as keyless fob entry, a security system, an auto dim/OAT/compass rear view mirror, heated side mirrors, a trunk organizer and OEM police full wheel covers (seasonal). I've always liked police vehicles but I really started grooving on them when I proudly served as a full time Cincinnati Police Officer from 2004 to 2006 driving the Ford Police Interceptor (P71) on urban patrol. I enjoyed driving it so much at work that I purchased my own. My '07 Ford Police Interceptor has served as my daily driver since 2007. Also, I show it at local cruise events as well as occaisionally drag race it at the local track...it does about 15.5 seconds in the 1/4 mile with the back seat bench removed, full size spare removed and 1/8 tank of 93 octane fuel.

    Winter configuration with factory HD steel wheels and factory stainless steel center caps...

    Laughing at the "externally lubricated" Triumph with the bride and groom reminded me of an image I shot in Edinburgh, Scotland years back. Neither "porn", or even pulchritude, but humorous to my way of thinking. image.jpg
