Sorry about the "eh." Armed Escort was visiting from Canadia (along with Slonie and Jerry_HEAVEN, who are from NorCal, which may as well be Southern Canadia) and I believe I've been infected. I am craving a couple of hundred mililitres of maple syrup and the TV is on a 24-hour hockey channel.
Anyway, I demanded that the three of them appear at Supercar Sunday and they did so. As we wondered the show with SVT2888, I spotted this, which caused 1) heart palpitations, 2) goose bumps (goose pimples in Canadieeen?) and 3) visible teardrops.
Yep, that did it (it was parked nose-to-nose with a Renault 5 Turbo II, which may have added to the intensity). As some of you know, I have an unhealthy relationship with the 131 Abarth. Like BBC "I have sex with autos"-levels of unhealthy.
I waited for the owner, only to cover him with gushing verbal diarrhea of compliments. I think I may have offered him the M3 plus a small sack of cash. I don't really remember. Everything is in an opiate-like haze. I do remember slowly running my hand on the Lada-esque door handle in a semi-erotic manner.
I think Leo took more pics. Actually, I know he did as I threw a temper tantrum demanding that he 1) take pics and 2) get on his knees...
And check to see if the suspension was IRS. It was not, so the car is a replica (as I later confirmed). Still, a great replica.
Other interesting finds (to me, at least):
Dolomite Sprint!!! I gushed and gushed and gushed. Then they all walked away and left me all alone :
An interesting pair of Rolls-Royces:
Freshly-imported RHD 200T (still wearing customs paperwork):
Bonneville record holder or deranged owner. Pick one.
"The only thing a Disco is good for." - Slonie
Second M1 in two days.
Then we went to Mulholland, where we saw a gentleman in an Evora "snitch" to the CHP about a G8 making an illegal pass. Turns out that people remembered the Evora's plates and, post-ticket, the G8 owner proclaimed that the Evora driver was going to have "problems" if the two ever meet again. This was too intense for the peaceful Canadian, so we left.
That is all. Maybe they'll post their pics here. Maybe they'll ignore this post. We shall see.

1. Had no idea you cared about the Dolomite. No one else did. Besides, how did you miss it?!?
2. When you told me about the Abarth, I had no idea it was a 131 Abarth, so seeing it peeking out from behind the R5 Turbo was a shock to my delicate constitution .
