      i was on i95 when I looked in my left mirror and noticed a very big something approaching FAST.
      we caught some traffic, so i managed to snap a pic.


      once traffic cleared up, he was moving at ~95mph. when he saw me trying to catch up, he slowed down, gave me a smile, and put the pedal down and disappeared into the horizon (i have no idea how fast he went, but if you've ever seen a liter-bike roll-on from 50mph, that's about what it looked like) 5 seconds later, I couldn't even see him
      yeah, I know, CSB, but it's not often you see a $,$$$,$$$.cc car showing off for you...

      Ah ha, I see the lancer as well, but look at the fine specimen in the side mirror. It's silver as well, very rare color for that year of Corolla.....

      Actually, your thread IS a CSB. At least it is for me, I would love to have that happen to me. How did that beast sound when it took off?

      i have seen one veyron on the road by my old work. it was the black/red combo and the plate simply said veyron. platinum motorsports in San Diego (an exotic car place) is near by and i can only assume he was headed there.

      at least you got a picture.
      i've seen Veyron's at car shows, im sure all of us have so that doesnt count
      i've even see one pull up to Cars&Coffee in Irvine, CA, while technically i was it driving on the street im not sure if that counts.
      and finally i saw one going opposite direction on I405 one evening, far too short of a notice to try and get phone out to snag a pic.

      Since getting to see a McLaren F1 in person last month, my list is getting smaller. I still have yet to see a Veyron or Porsche 959 in the flesh, I want to.

      Was Veyron driving it?

      http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...?292868-Veyron

      I LOVE the name Veyron. If I have a son his name will be Veyron. (vay-ron) after the car Bugatti Veyron...top speed 407klm/h, perfect name for a boy...

      http://www.supercars.dk/cars/bugatti/bugatti-veyron.gif

      Anyway, I was telling some friends about it and they reckon I could possibly be regretting naming my son after a powerful car, they said it could be bad luck because he might be destined to be a speeder because of what I named him...

      How can people think this crap!

      Is it bad that I kind of want to see Lexus asian lady come out of nowhere jump the crub and take out at least half those cars?
