Not sure if there is an upload limit, but I lost the first half so this was originally the earlier of the 2 posts (the other post is here).

Family emergency sent me to Hong Kong again. Without going into tedious details, I ended up staying a whole month. Not a problem, as it’s my old hometown and I know most of it like the back of my hand.

I prefer to spot rare or quirky cars, which cannot be found where I normally live and work (California). To me they are more interesting than the typical Ferrari/Lambo/exotica that are commonly seen.

Evo X, C63 AMG
