Default SanJose & SanFrancisco pics!!

Hello people, I have shifted to SanJose for studies. Its a nice place with looooads of corvettes, mustangs, camaros. Everything here is V8, automatic, petrol!

Some pics...

This is the view from my apartment..


On the highway to SanFrancisco..


At the BayBridge..


The BayBridge..


The Me..


Hyde Street.. The way at which it is angled is just unbelievable..


Great View..


The Crooked Street..


Golden Gate Bridge..(Sadly here in Winter it starts getting dark around 5:30pm so couldnt take good pictures of the bridge. Next time)


And.. now for some cars..you see a lot of sportscars and suvs here. Americans like big offroaders.

The Maserati Spider


Hummer H3


Porsche 911


Bling Cadillac Escallade


Subaru Impreza


Camaro in my compound. My compund has Mustangs, Firebird, Camaros...


Seen many supercars couldnt take much pics.

USA is very nice. I actually like all the systems here. You just cannot walk on the road here. There are signals in even the smallest lanes. Cars are clean, footpaths..errr sidewalks are very clean and tidy.

Liked the atmosphere here.! Its just 2-3 days here now.. lets see how I like it more..

I have a friend who works in SF. He tells me his office is very close to the "crocked street".

So, how do you move around in town? They have trams there right?

Stratos!

Good to hear from you, and see you are liking it in Cali.

You have a couple of great advantages being in Cali..
Starting with the weather!! (you dont know how lucky you are until you come visit us on the east coast anytime between nov-march!! )

Theres tons of "meets" and stuff happening... remember all those picture you see of 600 lamborghinis parked on this grassy kinda place with the sea in the background.....california! you have to find one of those meets and check it out!

Then theres tons of tracks around with events, laguna seca is probably the closest to you if i am not mistaken?....check out their website from time to time, they might have somehting interesting going on. I remember once they had a drag event on wed nights or something where kids were encouraged to come and race on the drag strip against police officers in their squad cars!! it was designed to "keep drag racing off the streets"...pretty cool.... mom's minivan vs cop car and the likes

and another great advantage of the bay area is that you see atleast one E46 M3 a day! beautiful.

have fun man,
(and dont forget you're there to study...!)
Hopefully i will come visit you sometime soon with a new 2seater toy
cya
R
