Haha....actually he's not kidding. No dreaming or PS3.

Though when the guy said the keys to the $240,000 LP560-4 were on the dash and to "get in and start it up...rev it up!" I had to go back and ask him if he was serious a minute later. He was, it *ROARS*

I feel really bad about it, but I was secretly hoping you got in a fender bender like I did.

But that's awesome dude! Where were you?

Where were you?!

Chris and I met up finally (sort of unexpectedly, at that) and we romped around the Detroit area to all the sweet exotic dealerships. Alot of the cars, I wasn't expecting to be there. Who walks into a Maserati dealership to find an Alfa 8C sitting in the showroom. I never expected to see a Veyron... ever, either. Such beautiful cars. And the exhaust note of that Lambo LP560 is to die for. I think I could settle for one to replace the Jetta. :P

Hah yea we were sort of lamenting about not having any pics afterwards. I didn't really want to stroll into the high end dealers with a DSLR on my shoulder and Cory didn't have his camera with him.

Nah. I wasn't expecting to be in Detroit, let alone to visit those dealerships, so I had left my camera at home.

It was a spur of the moment thing. I had a situation where I had to drive to Indiana and back and needed a place to crash for night. Next time, when I actually plan a trip to Detroit, I'll have to visit everyone from over yonder. :P

Damn, that's a long list of stuff, I too am jealous.

:useless:

C'mon! If I ever came face to face with a Bugatti

Veyron, and my camera was at home, AND my

cell phone's camera was non-functional I'd run to

the nearest ATM and then drug store to get one

of those $8 disposables... how do you NOT have

photos of these cars!? :(

How the hell do you end up in Detroit, without having EXPECTED it when

you live in central Penn....? What did you run out for a pack of smokes

and make a wrong turn & not realize it for 250 miles? :huh:

I think it's ironic since he just got a camera too. :P

Tell me about.

Haha... It's a bit further than 250 miles. :P

It's actually a long story. To keep it short, I unexpectedly had to drop someone off in central Indiana (don't ask, for the sake of my sanity) and I had done so without getting any sleep previous to the trip. By the time I was on my way back, I was completely exhausted and Chris let me crash at his place, which wasn't too big of a detour from where I was at the time. After I had gotten sleep and whatnot, the next day we went out to explore some places and went to all those dealerships. Meanwhile, my nice new camera was left at home due to not needing to take it along to drop this person off. A pity, I know.

I plan on driving over again since it's not as demanding of a drive as I thought it was. Chris and I will make sure to make another run to all those places just for pictures. :D

Sounds like a good time. I've gotten into my car with the intention of getting gas down the street and ended up in Arkansas.
