Time for my annual post where I show the highlights of all the cars I’ve seen this year.
On the first of the year, I took this rather nice picture of my last car, a 1998 Lexus GS300.
Next we have this amazingly poorly parked Fiesta. It’s roughly 2.5 ft from the curb and the back of it is in the middle of the road.
Next we have some cars from the Chicago Auto Show, including this lovely yellow Aventador Roadster.
The stunning Kia Stinger GT. I know not everyone loves it but it’s so much better in person and the blue is spectacular.
Jay Leno’s 2017 Ford GT
A gorgeous Porsche 918 Spyder in Riviera Blue, 1 of only 3 in this color.
Cayman GT4 Clubsport, a car where you pay twice as much to have fewer features!
Enough Cayman racers to make a spec racing series.
Count the GT3-RS’s!
A very subtle 911R, which was for sale for a mere $575,000 (this was before Porsche announced the next GT3 would have a manual option).
The 1 of 235 Porsche 911 Endurance Racing Edition.
A bad picture, but someone was enjoying their BMW 2002 on a clear spring day.
One of my dream cars, the Jaguar XKR-S in British Racing Green. Sadly this one had seen better days and needed minor body work, to the tune of $7500.
A BMW M4, made to be better than the GTS but for less money, while still retaining the factory warranty. And there’s one key difference between this and the GTS that makes this better:
The monster G550 4x4 Squared. The bottom of the windows are taller than the CLS parked next to it.
A very purple 991 GT3 RS.
The last picture I have of my GS300, right after I sold it. Just have to wonder if it’s still alive and kicking.
The first picture I have of my current car, an 05 Acura TSX.
Not sure what variant of the C1 this is, but she sure is pretty.
What’s left of a C5.
Likely the rarest Corvette in the world, the only remaining 1983 C4.
The brutally fast C7 Z06, owned by one of my mom’s cousins. It’s speed like nothing I’ve ever experienced before or since.
The first picture I have of my car once it became mine, bought for $4000.13 at 187,500 miles.
A classic ‘63? Thunderbird.
mmmm, Defender. Just down the street from the rental house we stayed at while in Colorado.
And just around this corner was this S60R with...
A visit to EarthRoamer was incredible. For those unfamiliar with EarthRoamer, they make some of the most luxurious Class C RV’s that are also capable of going almost anywhere on the planet.
The Jaguar E-Pace doing mountain testing, a few weeks before its unveiling.
A Cadillac CT6 doing some mountain testing as well.
Very few pictures depict Colorado’s car scene as well as this, an MR2, 2 Saabs, and 3 Subarus all in one picture.
Four real Ford GT’s all in one picture.
Followed up by 5 Cobras.
An actual Daytone Coupe.
The world’s first Cobra.
And next to it is another Daytona Coupe, this one being the first in class and fourth overall winner in the 1964 24 Hours of Lemans.
gotta love an aircooled 911 with rally lights
A wildly modified but good looking S2000.
Noble M12GTO 3R parked next to a 944 Turbo and an E60 M5. Oh, and a Ferrari California parked behind it.
The legendary Carrera GT.
Just your typical 1927 Bugatti Type 37A.
Not your typical Monza.
Fisker Karma in a gorgeous shade of brown.
The incredibly rare Kelly Python.
Just a couple of green Jaaags.
A perfect 1953 Porsche 356.
A nice gold Audi with some period BBS wheels.
Perhaps the nicest spec’d 911 I’ve seen.
A gorgeous Alfa 1750 GTV, with some pretty awesome yellow fog lights.
This picture contains 2 Lamborghinis, a BMW M-Roadster, a classic 911, a 993, and the new Camero ZL1.
A trio of icons.
A stock R32? What madness is this?
2x the 280SL goodness.
One rare Mini.
Not sold on the mods but Sportcross always deserves a picture.
Not the biggest fan of the matt black but still another dream car for me.
I love the i8, the fact that it still looks like the concept but is in production is incredibly cool to me.
Two F430s in Estes Park, one regular coupe, one Scuderia.
Slightly blurry shot of a Bentayga in Kansas.
991 GT3 sharing trailer space with an old Corolla.
Randomly came across a GTO Owners club show, multiple Concours winners.
Another Ultraviolet 991 GT3-RS, found in a business park near Chicago.
A Cadillac Eldorado convertible, which never came from factory.
Rolls-Royce Dawn in STL.
Notice the family stickers on the back and the Hemi badge...
Testarossa surrounded by several R-R and Bentleys.
Another Carrera GT.
The Aventador S looks stunning in pearl white.
The DB11 looks especially excellent in this deep maroon.
A very yellow Murci.
A somehow even uglier X6 M.
A 1-Owner, 2500 mile Testarossa.
A very unique color on this Slantnose Turbo.
Two manual 996 Turbos.
Fisker Karma spotted in downtown Chicago.
And my car as it sits today, buried under snow.
Overall, this year was a good one for cars and I look forward to the next!
