    It's my first day staying in LA and I have see some awesome cars. I will make a list with the best ones first.

    Ferrari 458 Italia
    Brabus Bullit
    Aston Martin V12 Vantage
    Ferrari F430 Scuderia
    Rolls Royce Drop Head Coupe
    Rolls Royce Phantom
    Lamborghini Gallardo
    Bentley Continental GT
    Bentley Continental Flying Spur

    These are just some of the awesome car I've seen. I was walking on Hollywood Boulevard before and some guy had a Specialized Demo 9 and a Rocky Mountain RMX, then I saw a Yeti 575. So far LA is sweet and it's just getting better.

    I watched a Bentley GT race a T-Rexx down Sunset Boulevard. They went very fast but the T-Rexx won.

    You think LA is good? HAHAHAHAHA, try Santa Barbara where I live....specifically drive to Montecito on the weekend...or through Hope Ranch. Montecito (with it's residents wealth combined) holds 1/8th of the world's wealth.

    On the average weekend if I go out riding and shuttle the trails that end in cieto I typically see a few million dollars in supercars...and I mean legit supercars. Here's a good list of cars I've seen so far this year out there.

    Ford GT500
    Ferrari Enzo
    Ferrari California
    Ferrari F430
    Lamborghini Gallardo
    BMW HPF M3
    Koenisegg CCX
    Mclaren F1
    Porsche 550a Spyder
    Aston Martin V12 Vanquish

    And the list goes on.....

    But ya, CA is pretty sweet...now if only they could share the wealth :P

    LA is okay to me, SD is more better. But personally, I am ready to leave Cali...head north or back east. If I cant live on the beach, why bother?

    lmao 1/8th of the world's wealth?

    so what percentile goes to london, paris, abu dhabi, new york city, beijng, dubai, etc.?

    definitely LOL @ putting the ford GT500 and BMW M3 in the same group as an Enzo and McLaren F1.

    Yeah, who cares what the people in the neighborhood drive, wear, or do in their spare time? Live your own life, OP, and check out from the overly image-conscious scene that is LA.

    When I lived in near Hollywood, La Brea/Melrose, in an "un-fancy" neighborhood (If I can afford the place, it can't be fancy). Some guy who lived on the block owned a Lamborghini, but parked it on the street. It got booted, and sat there for a while.

    One of those, "I have a fancy car and spend all my money on it, but have to live in apartments and park it on the street because I have no more money" kind of things I guess.

    The guy across the street owns a very Lexus SC 430 and lives in a $600 a month townhouse in the ghetto (I live in the ghetto, too :rofl: ). Since the townhouses don't have garages, he has it in the car port.

    And people wonder why I park my motorcycle IN THE HOUSE when I leave town overnight.

    Ha yeah. I mean, if owning the car is your dream, and you're willing to sacrifice all else to own it, then by all means do it. However, if you're buying such a nice car, it's a shame to have to park it on the street to be rammed into, and dinged by other drivers. The most common thing is the driver's side mirror being ripped off.

    I think the story behind it is he used to be a high roller until he got divorced and took to the cleaners. She let him keep the car because she took the SUV. He holds on to his precious ride and lives the dream.

    This is only a theory based on my observation since he moved in a few months ago. People watching in the hood is a pastime of mine.

    <edit> It is funny to hear him flying up the street with the top down blasting show tunes or Celine Dion, though.

    and my uncle owns a pair of Veyron Super Sports. :rolleyes:

    a GT500KR Convertible is worth about $75k on a good day. it's still not even close to being on the same level as any other car on your list.

    This thread is terrible.

    If MMike and TheMontashu had been the only participants in it, it could not be much worse.
