    Car Show in the Parking Lot

    The world's full o' cars. Not always a Good Thing. Like, here, in sunny SoCal --- we're absolutely choking on 'em, over-run with 'em . . . frickin' swimming in 'em. The amount of real estate, infrastructure, resources, energy, money + time these stupid things consume --- I just spent 45 min traveling, like, 3 miles!! . . . ridiculous

    And, yet . . . I love cars. Always have. Don't know why. And I admit it . . .

    I am an idiot

    I'm guessing that most cars are little more than means-to-an-end --- we pretty-much have to have a car, just get on with our lives. I know I do

    So --- given that we're all kinda stuck w/ cars in our lives . . . it's kinda fun to see something special --- that's not black/white/silver, not an SUV/mini-van/pick-up, not Japanese . . .

    . . . sitting out in the parking lot . . .

    Jeff's Bike

    OK --- not a car, maybe . . . but it is quite The Show

    My Buddy Jeff scored this little OG Triumph, few months back --- offa Craig's List . . . looks pretty original/un-restored/left-alone, to me . . .

    Not a 'bike guy' but I think a 'Bonnie' in gold and white should make it a 1964... ?

    BMW 'Vert . . .

    My parking structure, at work --- again . . .

    Same Guy as the pastel blue T, above, perhaps? Not a common car, like --- at all. Never see these . . . except at car shows, specialty magazines and 'For Sale' classifieds. All of these are 1602s

    Fresh plates. Wonder what The Story is, here. Too cheap to store?

    That bike must be out of oil as it's not leaking...

    Wuzzat?

    Heard of Tesla . . . .


    . . . but never heard of this . . .

    Model S

    http://www.teslamotors.com/models

    I dread most so-called 'future' vehicles. Zero emissions cars always seem to look like something designed by people who really REALLY hate cars

    But this? . . .

    Time for a test-drive

    Starting @ $52k

    Aston Martin . . .

    Caught-up w/ these two, a few months back

    OG banger Aston . . . heading towards SNA. And this Guy was not shy about using the throttle. Nice hat

    When I see cars like this --- super special but still just a car . . . and clearly/lovingly/mercilessly used . . . I just wanna shake hands with/hug the owners. When I think of all the money parked in garages/lock-ups/warehouses --- just in SoCal . . .

    Not much of an Aston Guy but seeing this rig in traffic --- especially the small size of it . . . was a bit of a shock. Total spaceship
