    Ron Shirley, two of my best friends and car nuts, went to the LA Auto Show today. Great show.

    But, I saw it! Not only that, I sat in it, and it was love at first sight...

    This car speaks to me. Oh my god, I want it.

    Sorry for the poor image quality, I'm working with Microsoft Photo Editor that comes with Windows and it sucks. Better quality pics of the show to come tomorrow night once I'm at home. For now, these two teaser shots, I can't get it out of my head...

    1. Ron Shirley browsing the specs and I'm talking with the Maser sales rep in the background regarding the car.

    2. I didn't want to leave this spot. When I sat in the driver's seat, I knew, this car is going to be mine! I was smiling and laughing, but the look on my face is dead serious and I was completely taken aback at how much this car stirs my blood!

    Good job Sunny! THAT is your kind of car! Good news is, I think it will be a flop and in 5 years you will be able ot pick them up for cheap! Id love to see you driving one of those. Imagine how fast you will be at the Ferrari events in that thing!

    It is a beautiful car isnt it? I loved it since I saw one driving around Irvine a month or two ago.

    Sunny,

    I agree with you, I think it is a great car, and if I ever decide to buy a car with more than 2 doors, that will be the one.

    Jordon, I disagree with you. I think there is a great market for a competitor for the BMW 7 or MBZ S, that is in the same Price range, quality, performance, and size, and with a somewhat limited production so you will not see one on every corner.

    I think the reason you can buy an old Quatro so cheap is simple. It is a piece of junk!. I guess we will have to see the build quality of the new ones.

    That is one nice looking Saloon. But you know Sunny I was thinking that the new Lotus Elise would be a great car for you.

    1) It is rare which makes it somewhat exotic.

    2) It looks awesome (my opinon)

    3) It handles incredible which makes it awesome for canyon drives (which you love doing)

    4) It is still economical (just a 1.8L 4 banger)

    5) It is reliable (powered by Toyota)

    6) It is affordable (40g's)

    Throw on a TRD supercharger and the power to weight is just SICKish.

    So why arn't you signing up for a Elise :).

    The Elise will come first. What do I do with the '97? I won't know that until my income is freed up from helping out my dad and paying 50% of the rent in Burbank while my buddy is still strapped and looking for work. Once this extra money starts coming back to me, the options will be wide open.

    The Elise is a great car! Id love to see you in both. With regards to your current car, I wish I could buy it off of you when you sold it...but Im trying to save up as much as possible incase Elden sells his GT4 any time soon. My goal is to end this year with $10k of spare money to save for something like that.
