I met some fantastic folk this past weekend including, choochoo, choochoo jr., bzcat, greatfox, his friend Levi, what, and Russian bear lawyer.
And I came away thinking
- I know very little about cars compared to everyone else that was at the C&C.
- I wish a cars and coffee attendee would have done a burnout to distract the resting poh-lice officer. But that would probably mean more po-pos the next time around
- Porsches are a dime a dozen in Los Angeles
- Lol at stock 3 series
- Ling Long tires mean srs business
- Your Evo V better have a rear diff. IT BETTER!
- it's called, "Cars and Coffee" not "cars, motorcycles and coffee"
- modern cars that are not modified are really boring at C&C.
- Gold Toyota Prius guy did not talk to anyone.
- I know why Vad is always looking for a new ride.
- i lost count of how many times we referenced the E30's rust.
Every car in Los Angeles is a snoozefest unless it's a custom built classic car. That is because there are so many Bentleys, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Veyrons, etc., that the shock of seeing these supercars wears off within an hour of two of arriving in Los Angeles. You know what's rare in Hollywood? A pickup!
I thought of the scene in Gone in Sixty Seconds (with Nicholas Cage), where Nick is at Ferrari dealer trying to get something that wouldn't make him a wanker. A modern Ferrari? Wanker. A classic Ferrari? Not a wanker.
I am still VERY disturbed by my car experience in LA. With unlimited amounts of money, I really don't know what I would buy if I lived there. If I wanted to be different? Maybe a La Forza. Oh ****, I saw one of those. I'm in a constant state of "What would I buy if I wanted a unique car and lived in LA?" I'm going crazy.
Damn you, Los Angeles! The only car I did not spot in Los Angeles were Lesbarus! And now I understand why Vad is always looking for cars...because no car favorably stands out in West Hollywood.
So depressing. But nothing gets the LA C&C guys more depressed than this:
