Thanks Krist! Go Lakers!

One of my buddies picked this up for me this spud’s got more handles than Kwame Brown as you can see- frickin hilarious (Dr. Evil voice). Will sit next to my Darth Tater and Optimash Prime…thanks man! GO LAKERS. Game 2 tonight…

CLS63 and C63 at lunch…

After a quick stop at Lee’s (Best Iced Coffee EVER) – I decided to stop off at the local MBZ dealer to see what they have in stock (remember, I’m still looking for some rear tires : new tires < new car LOL!)- took a CLS63 for a spin and had an opportunity to checkout a customers C63. The power on the C63 is amazing – interior is actually pretty nice as well – very reminiscent of the Black Series (seats/alcantara accents) . I think MBZ may have done this one right as far as market demographic. Quick shot of Ben f/Wheels Boutique smoking the hell out of his new C63 on HRE’s.

CGT Dreams…

It was so realistic…I had the keys in my hand, couldn’t believe I had picked one up. So surreal. Amazingly enough, I don’t dream about cars much. I actually don’t dream much in general…it’s about living the dream right? Speaking of living the dream a quick shot of the homie Eric’s custom CGT. So ill.

SMART Shopping…

Yes, my automotive ADD was at an all time high this past weekend…all because I got a flat tire. So fickle, I know…so after I passed on the Exige S because of the “comfort” I’d miss, I had convinced myself that what I really need is another “toy” car like my old Scion xB that my nephew is now cruising in. Cheap, easy on gas, fun to modify, but not a real barn burner. Maybe it’d make me appreciate my CLS more (which I figured I’d rebuild) and move it to a more friday/weekend status driver. I’ve loved the look of the SMART since I saw one in Munich¬† during a business trip way back in 2000 (I may even have a pic of me with it) . I figure I’ll pickup a white one, pay it off by the end of the year, get rid of the CLS, pickup a gallardo and voila – I’m set for the next year or so. LOL. Needless to say, these cars are actually still pretty hard to come by. My bro had a $99 reservation which he passed on a month ago, but at the time I wasn’t really into buying one…and of course now, I want one. Hoping to pickup a white one if anybody has leads – I’ve made a few calls, let’s see what happens,¬† my urge to buy something is slowly diminishing.

Exige S shopping…

So on a whim (because the tires I need aren’t available until July) – I decided to start looking at Exiges…makes perfect sense to me, Flat tire + tire not in stock = New Exige. LOL. The guys over at Newport Lotus were awesome, stayed late on Saturday to allow me to checkout inventory. Great looking car, pure performance – but could I really live with this thing daily? You should have seen me trying to get in and out of the thing…and I’m not a very tall dude. The interior is spartan…which I knew ahead of time, but didn’t think I’d miss. Driving back home in the CLS was a real eye opener, maybe I’ve gotten too accustomed to bluetooth/ventilated seats and full leather…damn the 16 year old Albert that rocked a civic with no air-conditioning would not be happy with me.

Nailed it!

uggh…one of my buddies says the car “knows” when you’re not taking care of it and responds accordingly. GREAT. I better have it detailed once it gets some new shoes. Was really trying to hold off till I could just trade the sucker in dammit. Pics from my Blackberry.

Diecast Binge…

Went nuts the past couple of days and picked up a few Lambo diecasts as they arrived at Prestige (one of the only cool toy places left)…the detail isn’t nearly as good on the Maisto’s and Burago’s compared to the AUTOArt’s that I have – but these are just as fun until I can pickup the real deal…

Sexy can I…?

New Aston Martin DBS at Cars & Coffee today…would have liked to see it in a traditional Spruce Green or Grey color since black hides the lines – still sexy. 007 approves.
