    ^ I "passed" on a 1957 XK140 back in the days of my youth because the rockers were all rotted out. It was petty cash.

    Used to watch the Ferraris role up and down Sunset Blvd. Back in '66, '67 saw a number of these yellow 275 GTBs. Sounded as good as it looked. Loved it when one would roar by with me waiting on the bus. Today I own a 1:18 scale model of the 275 GTB in yellow. Sits one shelf down from the Shelby Cobra I'll never own.

    Why is this R5 sitting so high?

    Mine didn't do that. But mine did have a huge cloth sunroof and I played designated driver to many a groom and ten or so other partiers. Sometimes it isn't the car, it is the wonderful times you had. Standing room only. Perfect French Quarter/Mardi Gras car.

    And don't get me started, over all the misbehaving that women would do in one of these, that they wouldn't in an "adult" car. Before any of you mock me too heartily - mine was white.

    I'm not at all a 'car guy', but I do get a little pang everytime I see a black '68 Charger

    Any new luxury car. Any.



    Not due to lack of funds, just lack of giving a damn. I've never liked them and I'm not sure why. I mean, the 2020 Chevy Impala I rented a few weeks back is straight up too fancy for me. I spent a lot of time riding in a roommates Benz SUV back in Chicago and I'd always be thinking (but never saying) "I don't get it." I had a GF with a few years removed Rover thingy of some sort, didn't get it.


    An AMC Gremlin in turd Brown with a shifter on the floor? For some reason, I GET that.
