Just had a Bugatti Veyron turn left in front of me as I was leaving the mall after the USA-Germany game this morning. The guy was driving a Bugatti to the mall, in the rain.

LIving around DC, seeing Porsches, BMW's, and Jags is common place. So, kinda hard for me on this. Granted, I did get to see a Delorean on the road near my house yesterday. That was a little interesting.

Unfortunately there are not too many Jaguars in New England but when I saw an early XJ6 Series 1 roll by the other day I was in love!


Also quite a lot of Tesla's making an appearance on the East Coast which is quite exciting!

Was actually last week but I saw a black Ford GT rolling down my street recently. I heard it long before I saw it mind. Never seen one in the metal before, just a shame I didn't have my phone on me or I'd have grabbed a pic.

After traveling the length of England, crossing the Channel through Eurotunnel and then across France from north to south overnight without seeing another Jaguar (1200 miles), I pulled into a service station in northern Spain the following morning behind this red XK Convertible.

He was as surprised as me!

A stream (8-10) of immaculately restored American autos from the teens and twenties rolling down a lonely two-lane road (not highway) in the Sacramento Valley. Does this count?

So that is what Tim "the tool man Taylor" drives. But a red one, never seen one down here. Thought it was a 55 or 56 Chev of some sort. Nomad huh!

Two Aston Martin DBS coupes with dealer plates were caravaning through heavy city traffic yesterday. It made me very nervous to watch!

A Ford 23 T-Bucket. However, it looked like the guy driving it was sitting on it instead of in it.

Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce. (also known as Step Nose GTV) 49 years old and all original, not restored, original. And it looked like it just came off the showroom floor.

Not the car but looks EXACTLY like this one:
