    I drove to Las Vegas Wednesday and returned Thursday. I had smoke from the fires all the way to Las Vegas. Not much ash but a lot of smoke. This is over two hundred miles away and bad smoke.

    Coming home Thursday there was no smoke at all.

    I did not see anything worth looking at the whole trip. Nothing to freeway race. Nuts.


    :mad:

    by one after the other. Where else but in So-Cal would you see this!

    Well, I'm not actually in SoCal at the moment, but saw a red 360 here in Boston today.

    About a week ago, I was comming home from UCLA, taking the long, non-freeway way, and saw a silver 360 Spider on Ocean in Santa Monica, and a red 308 on Lincoln in Marina Del Rey.

    Jordan, did you get a yellow 360 Spyder? On Macarthur this morning, I swear I saw what looked like Jordan driving a brand new, no plates, 360 Spyder

    I saw my weekly red Mondial QV coupe parked in front of the same house in Orange near Chapman University on my way to rehearsal this evening. I tried to meet the owner one day but he wasnt home...Nice looking car and it always brightens up rehearsal knowing that I will pass by it every night :)

    Saw a 456 parked in the Manhattan Village Mall in Manhattan Beach. It was parked outside Koo Koo Roo, but the person was probably at LA Food Show. It was a dark color, but I'm not sure if it was blue or black, cause it was dark and raining. Had an American flag in the rear driver's side window.

    DL - my 550 is in SF right now so it must have been an imposter.

    I am bringing the 550 back to LA for the winter a week from Monday - so be on the qui vive next week.

    Coming home from LA today on the Artesia Freeway going Eastbound, I saw either a silver Aston Martin Vantage or Vanquish going the other way. This is the first one I have seen on the street.

    Finally saw something cool! Coming home from a performance at the Orange County Performing Arts Center this afternoon (12:45) I saw a new silver Maserati Quatroporte coming down Main street in Irvine! Only glanced it it briefly as I was on the other side of the road and in tight traffic. It was pretty gorgeous though!
