You should check out the Pasadena downtown - Colorado Blvd on a saturday evening. No shortage of Ferrais,lambos etc .. Porsches,Mercs,Continental Gt's are a bit to common along the road. Maseratis are also pretty common.
Im not even mentioning the number ducatti's and busa's outside hoooters on colorardo blvd

For tuner cars .. just go to Irwindale near pasadena on a thursday night and no shortage of the craziest tuner cars and muscle cars ...

As soon as I got it, I went click click and all pics that follow are from the time I left office till I got home (say in about 15 minutes). I will keep updating this thread as often as I click pics. So far the cars I have driven in is a Dodge hatch with 8 inch stock speaker locations in all four doors (haven't seen the model name yet), Nissan Altima (picked up from the airport), an Infiniti sedan, a Hyundai Accent 3 door MT, Honda Accord V6, BMW z8. I will take a walk on El Camino road which has about 7-8 car showrooms of various marquees.

Sit back and enjoy:
haha .. within a few days you will become immune to the Porsches,Corvetttes,Chryslers,Escalades,h1'S, ferraris ,lambos etc

Yes I have been there very often especially to that Indian restaurant Akbar.

The tuners are due to the Irwindale speedway.

We should organize a TBHP So Cal meet.

How is Minneapolis treating you? must be a huge contrast to LA.

Let me know if you ever visit.

Guys we must also try and meet for the Wine and Country classic car races this month end. I am going there for sure. Anyone coming? It is an experience. I was at the Race Track on Saturday for a Vintage, Classic and Modern Ferrari Races and it was an unbelievable experience. See this for more info - Infineon Raceway | Schedule | Wine Country Classic

Lets get together at track.

So I went to a BMW motor show and here's a teaser. Anyone who guesses the car on 'my' right gets a copy of the Blackhawk museum magazine:

Well as spawnofsatan said, there aren't many fords around here. Its like an assortment of cars. You don't see the same brand, model, year car as frequently.

Was in dallas for a while, and its amazing that corvettes , mustangs and hummers are so damn common there. In a couple of days it just becomes yet another car, nothing too special spotting them.
