Its a Maserati. Just kidding. Its a Maybach.

Man, that guy has got guts to park that in Paris. During my trip last year I had seen cars parked so close, one was trying to get out and was stuck. What did he do? Simple.... used his car as a battering ram and pushed the car in front of him and behind him to make way so he could get out of the slot. Reminded me of the Pink Panther movie. Was so apt. hehehe.

Ok the red porsche looks like a Boxter to me. The gray beemer looks like the M3, but i could be wrong. I like the brown S class. A rather unusual color which i have not seen on the merc's earlier. The rest are pretty easy. Triumph's, R1, Moto guzzi, Hayabusa, Alfa Romeo's, Old Porsche, VW beetle, wierd scooter with 2 wheels in front, lot of S class (S500?), an SLK (350?), etc etc.

3) The silver one is a Suzuki Bandit. 600 if you ask me to guess.

8) Yamaha Diversion. 600cc air cooled old skool bike. makes for an OK commuter.

12) Ahaa! Kawasaki would be proud! Thats actually a modern kawasaki W650 made to exploit the Norton wannabe owners who want the look but not the hassles with a classic.

10) Sam, you have no idea how that particular photo affected me right now! Thats because i am currently trying to get my hands on just such a ZX9R - 98-99 model year!! Is this a sign??

Beautiful pics again Sam !! Reminds me of a day a few months back and I was very near to Oxford Street London and there was this street I had to cross to get to the Main Market Oxford Street. The whole street was full of exotics ( Maybach, S class, CLS , 7 Series Limos, Bentleys, Arnages, Phantoms ) I said to myslef why in Hell should I go to the Auto Expo !!

Default 10 more random street photos

I'll put out another 10 random photos, then go back to some sights and stories - OK?

Good going there Rtech, just as I expected of you. Stick around we need your expertise here.

And here we go..





















What are someone's chances of seeing 2 maybachs in one hour, on the street? Lol, this one is a Dubai number.

Hey there veyron, chal at least you're making a good effort to identify the cars. Well done and you have a keen eye. I am impressed.

Robin is a kwacker person already. Uses a Kawasaki (ZZR? or something like that)400. And as you probably know, he knows his motorbikes well.

That's nice to hear Sammy, but the more important question is how many times did you have to charge the Camera's battery???

Well, Sam.

I have a passing interest in cars (maybe more than passing). But I have an abiding interest in the 'far-off lands' kind of thing. Your pictures make me happy. I get a glimpse into another culture and another way of life even though I am not there. The cars and bikes are a bonus.

Lovely.

But I have one question still. How do they keep their place so effin clean? How? How? I am still not able to figure that one out.
