Interesting Cars Seen Yesterday

Yesterday, while leaving the Arsenal, I was on a three lane highway:

I was in the right lane (in my little red Aspire... )

This was in the middle lane:

and this was in the left lane:

Not a couple of cars you see very often!!!

Those aren't the actual cars, but they looked identical down to the color and models!

97 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC (Chip'd, 3.73 T/L... so far... )
97 Ford Aspire (Slow, but getting 36 mpg (f'n Ethenol!! )
84 F250 Dually w/6.9L Diesel (7.3L IDI pending)
73 Mercury Cougar Convertible w/351C 4V (Partially Restored)
69 F100 LWB w/460 Engine
76 Glastron Carlson 23' Jet Boat w/460 CJ Engine

Here in sunny Palm Beach (translates to hot and muggy), the maserati sightings are almost as common as seeing a volkswagon. More disturbing is seeing the pilots of many of the high dollar vehicles who cant be many years out of diapers. We have a few of these stalking the roads (a pretty rare sight) and the first thing you would notice about it would be the sound that it makes. It sounds like nothing else on the road. Hey for a half million bucks, i'll take 2!

Ive been seeing a lot of vipers of all years. They aren't super rare, but Im still glad I saw them to say the least. Muscle cars are popping up on the highways from all the car shows that have been goin on in New England. Can't complain about that either!

I saw a Yenko Nova and an early '70s GTO convertible on Saturday afternoon, and Sunday I saw a '68 Mustang done up to look like the one from Bullitt.

I remember that interview.

Most exciting thing I've seen on the road recently were 2 ISP K9 units and 2 IDEM 3/4 ton Suburbans haulin' ass headed towards the floods on I-65.

I saw a 69 Dodge Charger just today, it was gray, with some nice rim on it. The car was just bada**. When i saw it my jaw dropped onto the steering wheel, he looked at me and smiled and left about two 50ft black marks. I was in shock,because i had never seen a car that popular in real life.

Wrecked my 94LX looking to get another car.

theres a blue one around here.. theres a guy just down the street from me with a 78 Camaro pro street car.. i love the summer when hes working on it and he fires it up in the evenings.. (gotta love open headers ). theres a few vipers here in Bradenton but my favorite to see about once a year is the guy in Sarasota with the Mercedes SL600 AMG with the chrome paint.

Coincidence this thread got started. I saw a Maybach 57 yesterday on 285. Second time I saw him. I was on the highway and had no idea what it was. All I could make out at the time was that it looks like it has a curtain in the back windshield and the logo looked like 3 M's superimposed on each other. It turns out it's just 2. Took me a while on the internet to figure out what I saw.
