    I cannot stand these fake crackles. It sounds so fake.

    But the crackles appear to be meaningful to many buyers

    One of the knocks against my NSX is that it does not sound aggressive enough

    Sheridan Rd in Winnetka/Glencoe/H.Park area seems to be a great spotting place.
    A few days ago my jaw dropped when I saw a Red Stratos coming from opposite direction and was frustrated I could not whip my camera out fast enough.
    Today, similar situation, except it was a gorgeous 1978-1981 White M1, a car that is a treat to see at all, much less casually driven on the road.

    While I have to agree that the I10 between LA and Phoenix is pretty boring, a friend of mine and I just may hold the record from Orange County (south of LA) to midtown Phoenix (including a stop for gas and food) of 3 hours and 20 minutes in an F40.

    There was no dozing off during that drive.

    Another airplane spot from ORD, coming in from Auckland. Qantas will also start nonstop 787 9 service to Brisbane next year for those who like really long flights.

    Not lunch (joke) I saw two AMGs in front of a restaurant on Damien with Goldrush Rally livery around 1. One also had CMC livery. Had no idea it was a thing. Just thought it was a couple of car guys hanging out.
