    Drove past a Honda NSX yesterday. It was far smaller in real life than I thought it was.

    I wonder why most of the unusual cars around here are red... I don't like red cars. :(

    yeah the NSX is extremely tiny. My accord may be kind of big but it's very low and when I drove behind an NSX once I still felt like a freaking pickup truck

    I think it's the height of the NSX that surprised me. It's very low. The top of the roof is about the same height as the lower part of the side windows on my car (5-series BMW).

    That's probably why it looks so long and wide in pictures.

    I've seen 458 Italias more times than I can remember, I just NEVER EVER have my camera hand when I do.

    Saw a Bugatti Veyron a week or so ago. Now that I have a new laptop, expect pics soon.

    On the way to the Foo Fighters a few weeks back there was a 1970 Corvette Stingray. Stunning beast indeed.

    Well Oxfam have one of their warehouses in Portishead, it's quite an operation so it's not too surprising.

    An Aston V8 Vantage in black.
    Was standing there, waiting for a mate to open the gate in the evening, when I see this car come down the hill. This is me going "ah... the DB9 cruising around here... wait... that's smaller than a DB9. wait... that's wider than a Jag. V8!"

    A Brabus CL Class went past me a little while ago on the A1. Number plate was MICKEY. Tasty indeed.
