    Some car pics from a dealer visit (updated with a new visit)

    NOTE MY ORIGINAL PIC HOSTING SITE CRASHED...I WILL HAVE TO RE-UPLOAD THESE...BUT CHECK MY MOST RECENT POST FOR A NEW VISIT




    Back at Pfaff to get my winter tires installed and as usual they had an insane selection of cars to ogle.

    I have heard people say the Senna is not the best looking car and I really don’t understand how they came to that conclusion because every time I see one it is just stunning!













    I love this shot with the 918 in the background



    Speaking of stunning cars…Porsche 918









    Almost makes the 911 GT2RS look plain lol







    Vs. a 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0, a cool $500,000!





    And a 911 Turbo S



    The Rolls Royce Wraith is one of the most beautiful cars out there









    Incredible paint



    And I never sat in a Rolls…until today! Love the suicide doors







    That is a longggggggggg hood...a bit disorienting



    The starlight roof liner is awesome




    For the cost of almost all of the above, a $4.6M 2019 Pagani Huayra Roadster







    Samples of the leather interiors





    I srill prefer the SLS but cant deny the AMG GTR looks incredible in this green





    First time I see one in this blue colour



    They had a few G-wagons, including the lifted G500 4^2





    you can see how much taller it is than my car



    Perhaps my favourite car of the day was the Jaguar Project 8…I saw this at the Toronto Autoshow and it was great to see another one…after all, there are only 300 in the world! This super sedan recently broke the Nurburgring record for production sedans with a time of 7:18.
















    Project 8 badging







    Muscular stance







    592 hp 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 and all-wheel-drive…does 0-60 mph in 3.3. and tops out at 200MPH



    It is possible to get the rear seats deleted and replaced with a roll cage but so far the three or four that I have seen in Canada have not chosen this option





    Next door at Ferrari/Maserati…a BB512 and F40! Along with an old school Maserati Merak











    Since people ask….i finished with a Colossal (16 oz) montreal smoked meat sandwich at Corned Beef House located a few blocks away.

    Nope, not even if I won the lotto big time. I can appreciate that some of those cars are appealing (even sexy) to some people but I'm from the insanely heavy clutch pedal muscle car days and couldn't force myself to sidestep the clutch and mash the loud pedal to the floor on those pretty things like I would to an old Chevelle, Duster or Mustang. I do like your sammich though!

    Tom Nelson is selling complete twin turbo big block packages making 1250 HP on pump gas for $25,999, ready to bolt in with the fuel system and ECM. I can think of all sorts of fun with that for a lot less than the sticker price one one of those jewels. Pretty to look at, but pretty much useless to me. Sounds like something from a bar lol.

    I'm not sure what to think about the look on your face as you gaze at that sandwich. Lol.

    You look pretty single minded like you're going to positively destroy it.

    I would have ended up having a nap on the leather back seat of that Rolls lol

    I hate to think what Winnipeg winter roads would do to one of those cars. Hell, the summer roads would chew those up

    About eight or nine years back my neighbour’s wife managed to get her Dodge Caravan high centred in the back lane. My 2wd Sierra even had a hard time with it.
