    I saw a ZR1 driving out of Humber College today. Velocity Yellow - one of two in Canada claimed the driver. The guy said he was looking at Ferrari and Lamborghini, but that the ZR1 was faster. I told him he chose well, and that everyone has a Ferrari and Lamborghini (everyone has a Corvette, but no one has a ZR1). He revved it for me a bit at the stoplight, then gave it some gas to pass a van. It sounded fantastic. It was super low and had ultra fat rear tires. Brilliant.

    A soft top as I drove along in my hard top.

    Ah yes... do rub it in...

    Did you guys exchange looks or did it even reach the compliment fase?

    Actually we didn't get to pull alongside each other, but I'm sure he noticed me and we both overtook a lorry and a couple of cars that were moving along at like 40km/h.

    It was curious.

    Was waiting for a stoplight in Palm Beach earlier today, and as it went green a Fisker Karma with five swells aboard rolled through
    the intersection (cutting us off) turning east towards the beach road. Followed for just a block before it pulled into a driveway behind
    Estée Lauder's house. These cars are huge, like a gigantic silver catfish.

    Should it's driver continue to run lights, instant Karma is gonna get him.

    All the green tech money can buy doesn't preclude douchebaggery.

    1960 Ferrari 250 PF Cabrio in regular traffic... looked fairly scruffy which was the second surprise.
    Brief friendly exchange at a stoplight with the older driver who said he'd owned it a long time.

    Sounded good, didn't smoke.

    Series II Cabriolets are underrated, they lived in the shadows of the California, either LWB or later SWB.
