I like cars

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

I like cars a lot. I don’t plan on ever owning a very nice car, but I appreciate well made cars. It turns out that tonight was the night for cars. It wasn’t the first time I’ve seen interesting cars in San Francisco. We see Porsche’s left and right. BMW’s too. Tonight’s excitement started with the Maserati Quattroporte Executive GT. If that wasn’t enough, we then saw a Bentley Continental. To top it all off, we walked by a Maybach 57S. For those gentle readers unfamiliar with these three cars, the price tags are roughly $122000, $169000 and $377000, respectively.

Update: Looks like we also so a Lamborghini Gallardo as well. And I got a couple pictures.

Oh wait, I just committed myself to update…
