Even though the weather is supposed to get crummy again this weekend, it was nice enough today that I finally pulled the bike out of storage.
The Mercedes-Benz W116 450SE. This car is the first, and according to Doug DeMuro, the least cool S-Class ever. Regardless of how it stacks up against its offspring, I still find this 450 to be a cool car, even though it isn’t the revered LWB 6.9 model.
This one would do nicely, once the 3rd row had been reinstalled and the random tail light cages had been taken off.
This is a long, trivial, yet rather funny tale of absurd chance which befell me this week. It involves nitpicking, an indie LGBTQ movie, a Kiwi-turned-Portlander, and a pair of old Ferraris.
I died and now I’m dead.
I’m not sure what’s worse: the fact that this is the NINTH TIME he has gotten into an accident that he could have easily avoided, or the fact that he keeps uploading them to YouTube for world to see.
Real slantnose or nah? My guess is nah. Spotted on the Pacific Coast Highway.
And it’s still boring. I guess the fact that things have been unusually calm lately is a good thing. Although that intersection in the last clip really was something else.
Casual Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost cruising down Rodeo Drive. Sadly by the time I parked and got my phone out it had apparently left the area.
It is an absolute joy to drive now that the SoCal sun is a out (rain is a different story for those who saw my ill-informed tire post this morning). Took the PCH through Newport Beach to Escondido and it was a ton of fun trying to keep up with the various Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Also, Google Maps tried to take us…
I was far from disappointed.
2010 Mini Cooper S 6-Speed. I like, but it drives super differently from anything else I’ve ever driven. What do you want to know about it?
So much LWB V12 minty perfection.
