Only In LA: 99 Cent Beemer

Only In LA: 99 Cent Beemer

I originally took this photo because I wanted to comment on the subtleties of the aftermarket parts, showing how a little restraint can be the difference between a Dude and a Douchebag. However, then I realized that to anyone living outside of LA, a tricked out late model BMW at a 99 Cent Store may seem really strange. And to you, dear reader, I say–...

Ferrari Count of the Day

After a few dry ones–I’m pleased to report that Italy’s finest was in full effect today. Nothing too exotic– 2 Californias (yuk, but that’s another post); 4 430s (could there possible be more of them?) and 1 of the ever- stunning 612 Scaglietti.

M is for Yummy

So this morning, my friend presents me with a challenge– switch cars for a day.  Sounds tempting, right? Consider the stakes–  my friend has an 2010 M3 and I have a 2011 German SUV whose 0-60 and torque both beat the M3.  Why would I switch, you ask?

Ferrari Count of the Day

Ferrari Count of the Day

One! No joke. Probably the saddest day ever for this Enzo-devotee. But the fact that I saw 3 Lambos in the space of 20 minutes (one in Pearl White, nonetheless) made life worth living.
