    A second-gen Audi S8 at the parking lot of the local mall. Black with huge crome rims.

    Saw a Lexus IS-F the other day.

    Probably the same car that I posted about in the past.

    I think that's not a C5 anymore. It's a "UCP Birtubo", a very rare Dutch car, actually a one off car. You can recognize it thanks to some pretty large UltimateCarPage.com stickers, but it won't be easy.

    I also saw a man from the outer space, and his father.
    They are much harder to spot as they seem to continuously move from one city to the next one looking for the ultimate...car!

    I saw my first Brilliance today. Not that bad looking, but really...what were they smoking to name it "Brilliance"??? Thats like naming brands "Power" or "Quietness" or something like "Super Extreme Genius Automobiles". Naming isn't the strength of the Chinese at the moment (you remember "Gleagle" and "great Wall" don't you...?).

    You should see some japanese car names. They are pretty preposterous as well.

    By the way I read yesterday that Brilliance has stopped selling cars in Europe becasue..., well..., nobody wants them.

    I wanna say I'm surprised, but really I'm not. Perhaps they'll come around later.

    It appears they didn't want to lower the price to increase sales, but I don't know how low the price was in the first place. Also, the didn't sell them in all of Europe, only selected countries.

    I'd imagine they would start out fairly cheap in order to gain some market share. They don't really have much of a reputation to go on yet, so they have to give people some incentive to buy their stuff. The only people I can see buying cheap chinese cars are really frugal old German men . My father would make an excellent contender if he weren't so obsessed with his Toyotas.

    A Testarossa or 512 or something. Just a fleeting glimpse of the back of it.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.
