Thanks, Todd.  Yes, all is well.  I am happy to be working for Galpin Ford - high five to a fellow Ford employee!  I started in new car sales for 6-months and recently transitioned to selling wholesale auto parts.  We have a huge parts warehouse with over 30 delivery vans so I'm excited about the future.

I don't know any details about that red Cobra but it had Carroll Shelby's autograph on the dash.

I have heard other folks make similar comments about the potential of polished body cars like that wrapped Audi R8 blinding other motorists.  But, I think if that were truly an issue we'd have problems with polished Airstreams and 18-wheelers.  I have always loved the look of polished metal.  I even made a gallery of pics:

I saw this number a few weeks ago when I was down in LA



I saw this lovely Ferrari 458 while I was driving around last weekend



I also saw another Ferrari GT car around the city I live in, and maybe a Noble. I don't have photos of those though.

That's a different color on that Lambo.  I kinda-sorta like it, I think .  .  .

Ok.  I knew the color looked familiar, but I couldn't place it.  Grabber Blue makes sense .  .  .

Looks like someone decided to take their M400 for a spin today

Don't see many of those! Actually I've only seen two in my life, and never in red! Looks good!

That's a cool car !  Someone in Missouri had one that he used to bring to us for maintenance, (his car was powered by the 3.0L Duratec V6, is that the M12 ?).  And no, the maintenance techs didn't get that car.  It went to one of the Senior Masters every time it came in .  .  .

As far as I know they're all twin turbo duratec V6s. I guess the M400 is just another trim of the M12 lol. They didn't import a lot of them to the US (few hundred?) and I guess only the M400 and some spec just below it were the only ones imported?

I remember the car drawing a crowd whenever it arrived for service.  And, I also remember seeing the car several times during my tenure at Machens Ford.  Meaning, the car owner actually drove the car quite a bit !  Always good to see that .  .  .

This is the second time I've seen this one around; the last time was on what must have been "bring your expensive car out" day because I saw an Ferrari 458 and F12 roaming around that same day, among other cars.

Spotted this in downtown Athens recently.





A friend of mine and I were walking in downtown Athens.  I spotted one of my all-time favorites in a parking garage.  I haven't seen a suicide-door Lincoln convertible in Athens before.  And this one looks pretty nice .  .  .
