    Saturday my neighbor came over (he knows I'm a car fanatic) and told me his brother-in-law was on his way over and bringing his new Carrera GT. I grabbed the camera and headed over to wait. Anyway, here are some pics.

    The first one is of the owner who happens to be the owner of the Little Giant ladder system https://www.ladders.com/ and then there's some of me and of course the car. It was so amazing in person and sounded the dogs at WOT when he took off!!

    Unfortunately I didn't get to ride in it, he was kind of in a hurry. Hopefully he'll bring it by in the summer sometime and take me for a spin. He has a collection of about 35 rare and/or exotic cars... Mercedes 300 SL, some Ferraris, Harley Davidson Motorcycles, etc.

    Thanks for the comments on the view. I quite like it myself although we need more snow!! If any of you plan a trip to the USA, you should come see us in Utah!!
    Cheers!

    if i had my way... i'd have bought a car of each kind... porsche,astin,bentley,rarri etc

    that way... i wouldnt have to swap as i have the best car in each make..

    thus saving money in swapping all the time...

    Yeah I saw a yellow one here in Geneva a few months back. Yellow too, which I don't think is a great color for the car, It's not horrible, but what is worse then yellow on the outside is the yellow on the inside this guy had:
