great pics gogi :-)

I know how it feels to spot so many beauties pass by as if they are just another car & you look at them as if some hot babe passed happened with me when I went to NZ. Btw do take nice pic if you happen to spot an Aston Martin IMHO nothing has as good presence as an AM :-)

Kiran, ur a class act!! Since I am a Mumbaikar from origion and heart, I prefer to use pronunciation close to my roots, therfore, LOU = LOVE pronounced as LAOO!! ( As in I Laoo cars as much as all of you)

Just returned from Disney's Animal Kingdom. Chose this park over the others because its smaller compared to the others and can be done in a shorter time comparitively. This choice was largely due to the fact that I had to rent a car which took some time. I used Dollar car rental as they gave me the best deal. $296 fro 6 days including insurance.
I originally chose a Chrysler 300C Hemi



(only $50 more over the Dodge Straus or the Chrysler PT Cruiser they were offering in that price) but the car was unavailable. So i settled for a midsize. In the meanwhile tried to turn on the Charm at the sales girl at Dollar.Com and she quickly upgraded me to a Dodge Caravan Van. I got a deal so I took it.

The Caravan:




Here are some more pics from La, Vegas and Orlando:

First as Always, more Classics:

A Chevy Camaro



Another Mustang



An Oldie Black and Yellow Ford at The MGM Studio



Caddy Limo Power





Speaking of limos,... Lets see some outrageous stretches,..
Whoever thought of turning this ...



....Into These....YUCK!!





Now this is what you call a car.... very very close to the Hemi 300C.. but what is it???? Hint Hint.. the original was in the same colour????!!! The name on the black body stripe says it all...C'mon Ishan its the car you want..(the classic version)




No...no...cant be... Whaaa?/ a four door Charger R/T...yessiree and America cant have enough of it.. personally I think a four door makes more sense but its killed the whole persona....
But then what is a M5??!!




A red Charger with Red wheels. A new fad in the US. Either have Chromes, blackened or matching wheels with the body colour. Mind you they have to be upsized 3 times minimum.



A very practical move by the US government. The front number plates in cars in some states have been done with. You do not need front plates in cars. But the rear are necessarry. Come to think of it, you see a car approaching and it maybe knocks someone off or cuts a traffic light, which part of the vehicle do you take the number from.. maybe altoghrther a different reason fo rthem to do so but this was my reasoning. If the guy has to escape, hes not gona do it in reverse..!!
Check these cars all without the front plates!!





Keep an eye on this thread for more updates!! By the way guys just heard (breaking news) on the radio that there was a mustang crash on some highway wherin the Mustang was split into...hold your breath Three pieces. Will post details as soon as i get more on it. Am glued to the TV as of now.

Gawd, just saw the news on TV.
It looks like an old 90's Yellow mustang but is too mangled to recognise, was doing 120mph, on the Florida Orange county highway, went out of control, crossed the median and crashed into a buick killing the driver, a 51 yr old man, then crashed into a mini van with 5 people injuring them all badly. The driver of the mustang was 20 yrs old, was not wearing a seat belt, and did not survive. Sad...the loss of lives always had this effect on me. The impact was so great that the Mustang's engine was ripped from the car and catapulted to the the highway opposite. What caused the accident and who the driver was, the police are investigating and not revealing. Details are awaited.
guys, be careful.
