    I got a call from my buddy at the Mini dealership saying some stuff I ordered was in...then he tells me to come down quick because a Bugatti came in and its out in the open. I guess the 1000hp key wasn't working, only the 800hp key was so it came in to get fixed

    on its own semi

    with its own tech


    so I screwed down there to try to get a couple pics but it went inside and they wouldn't let me go look at it...sucky, but I'll try again before it leaves

    I did grab these quick while I was there though

    A new(er) RUF:

    and a pair of Smart cars (they go on sale in Jan):

    -they had manufacturer plates on them..no VINS and the speedo was in km
    solid front rotors (like a normal rear rotor), 3 lug, 15" wheels, and from what I could see in the back, it looks like theres only 1 CV shaft

    it also runs like a golf cart...1 pedal
    foot on - go
    foot off - stop

    they do have manumatics in them though

    and CD players

    The smart has only 1 pedal ? No way. No fucking way. I mean, we have to let our foot off the pedal at least SOME TIME.

    Also +1 to the Gemballa. But I like the pre-90 Gemballa designs. Of course I wouldn't kick a RUF out of bed for eating crackers either.

    I like Caymans because there is a 25% bigger chance that I can afford one.

    yummy on both accounts :wub:

    although i still would rather have an air cooled single turbo 911
    they might not make as much power... but there is nothing like the sound of an air cooled 911.... accept maybe a really pissed off riding lawn mower :lmao:

    Just waiting for the Rich dude to Curb Check it like the Austin and Bentley and go with some wheels. But he never keeps em long enough to do anything to them. I have always wanted to ride in a GT3 and it was everything I could imagine. Even more fun than the 997 Turbo he had. Na is sweet in these cars.
