    Not counting the cars seen at Schlumpf's museum, the past week:

    Alfa Romeo Spider Series 2
    Alfa Romeo Spider Series 4
    Alfa Romeo 1750 (2000?) GTV
    Aston Martin DB9
    Aston Martin Vanquish S
    Autobianchi Bianchina
    Chevrolet Corvette C5
    Chevrolet Camaro 2nd Gen
    Citroen DS
    Ferrari F430 Berlinetta
    Fiat Nuova 500
    Lamborghini Gallardo
    Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
    Lancia Thesis (lots of them)
    Maserati Quattroporte V (various)
    Maserati Coupé 3200 GT
    Maserati Coupe GT
    Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG
    Porsche 930 Turbo
    Porsche 911 (996) Turbo
    Porsche 911 997 (various)
    Rolls-Royce Phantom

    The past week I was in Maranello/Rome/Mulhouse (we did 3500km in 6 days ) and I maganed to see all those cars and maybe a couple more that I can't remeber. I'd like to point out two things of the journey.

    The first is the number of road signs reading "electronically controlled speed". At least 50 I'd say, but only 5 speed cameras, and hugely marked at that. No wonder italians drive massively fast... we did too...

    And the second one is a 60-65 year old woman we encountered when leaving the car at the Rome hotel's car park. Would you want to guess which car she had? A Punto? A Panda... perhaps? No. A 190bhp V6 engined Alfa Romeo 166. That's the kind of woman that overtakes you in the motorway doing 150mph...

    I love italians...

    PS. I promise pics of some (and of the museum too) eventually.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    One of the best places to visit, I'm going for my second time in a couple weeks.

    Today on road an 850 CSi, 993 something special and some ****ing idiot in his ute racing out of a street, getting on the gas and fishtailing into another car coming in the other direction.

    Bastard. If you don't bring that thing down here, I'm coming up there and I'm going to slam your head in the door. Actually, that sounds like a pretty good idea anyway.

    Well not today, but yesterday I almost sh!t my pants full when I saw 3 gallardos (including a yellow spider), 3 F430 spiders, and an orange murcielago with an awesome looking spoiler. These were all driving in a row. My region rarely or almost never sees cars of that calibre, so it was quite an overdose for me. I couldn't believe it.

    Yeah I saw them, too. In Downtown Vancouver.

    Guess what...there was a 900 BHP SALEEN S7 TT, too. Along with Lambos, Novitec Ferraris etc.

    They drove from Calgary to Vancouver, and then to Okanagan (sp?) Valley.

    I have pictures of all the cars there if anybody's interested to see.

    We just got back from a week at the beach. Sights from the past week:
    - a blue Yugo hatchback
    - a black and red two-tone Chrysler Prowler
    - a brand-new red Ford Shelby GT500 convertible
    - several classic American cars, including a primer-gray 1956 Chevy station wagon that we were behind for a while

    EDIT: I forgot; I also saw a red Dodge Ram SRT-10 QuadCab. We were parked in the same parking lot, and the owner left just before we did. I got to hear it start up and drive off. Mmmm....
