this guy merged onto the expressway right beside me on the way home from work yesterday. My favorite corvette of all time! loved it. Had aftermarket exhaust and some serious rubber out back, my guess was 315's at least :shock:

RYMAN was probably already taken, and he couldn't buy it!

Saw this about 2001 on the street in Palo Alto and a friend happened to snap a few shots. Kind of akin to burning a pile of cash in front of a homeless person. The bird shit and leaves in the carbon fiber intake really drive the message home. Probably belonged to Ellison, but then again It is Palo Alto.

So sad DCypher. The McLaren was such an amazing machine. I'd still love to drive one.

Yeah sad is right Nurb, I can only think of Ferris Buellers Day Off the way Cameron's dad kept his Ferrari Dino in a glass encased garage. That's the only way I'd keep a Mclaren. That car is beautiful, it is truly like a formula one car for the street.

That's not sad, it's awesome. That car was meant to be driven, not stored in a glass box and polished with a diaper. You don't get any cooler than using a McLaren F1 as a daily driver and leaving it parallel parked for some idiot to back into. And I mean cool literally- he obviously can afford the car, but he also clearly doesn't really care about money. It's almost modest. I'd much rather be this guy than the oil wealth trust fund douche driving a chrome plated SLR.

Amen. Using a car like that as a daily means you can experience it all the time! And not being precious about it means everyone walking past can experience it too. Awesome
