Love seeing cool cars parked where you don't expect them (shopping mall parking garage in this case).

nice. Felt the same when I saw that Ferrari GTS in the airport parking lot. I just couldn't help wondering what a nice girl was doing in a place like that? ;-)

The r8 is one fine grocery getter...

Is someone having an issue keeping their engine warm? Or did they swap the engine for a CAT diesel?

Is that a ticket on the hood of that Aston? Should be cited for improper care of a Vantage

Here's an Enzo I just bought on Gran Turismo 5 for a million credits. (I need to get out more.)

I always enjoy spotting a stock Model T or Model A.

Slippy: congrats on the sweet ride;)

Took a trip to the local 'you-pull-the-parts' scrapyard and have some pics to share! It always makes for a fun afternoon, and I already have a stash of Cadillac, Benz, and other badges.

Cool clock... I've repurposed a handful of clocks like this with old phone chargers

Ornate hood ornaments (Pontiac I believe)

Seeing how these cars deteriorate and which parts are sought after even in death is a very cool experience. Also, sitting in cars that have been in horrific accidents is oddly exciting. You can see how the elements wear on every material in the car... the crackling leather, rotted out floor panels, sun-damaged dashboards, all arrays of botched paint jobs, over-worn parts from specific repeated use... It also feels like a shame we're concerned with pedestrian safety over excellent hood ornaments, and angular metal grills.

One more post, because I was blown away by this 64-66 Thunderbird.

Profile: The lines look like they influenced the new Mustang around the rear haunches, but are still very traditional with the parallel lines and long slim look
Image

Front 3/4: Grill has almost an Aston shape, wrapping under the double headlights. I like the recess in the headlights, and it reminds me of the front of those old Datsun 280z/x
Image

Interior/Dash: The best part. Gauge clusters are separate modules, and the speedometer is a horizontal array of physical numbers. The steering wheel has some crazy depth that was hard to capture in the photo, and the whole interior was clearly designed without regard to the possibility of a crash. Also, the hidden and very central (armrest) smoking station was a nice touch.

The back seat had very cool wraparound upholstery (not my image) and looked downright spacious compared to the second row of most modern 2-doors
