    Looks more like a VW van in a fisheye lens to me.

    I didn't assume that.  Vanishing points on wide-angle lenses distort the hell out of everything.

    I did assume that and was wrong.  It is a VW, sorta...

    Were I to ever purchase a Ferrari, pretty sure gray would be the last color I’d choose.

    I hope he at least went with red interior to match the gray.

    Maybe green is the right color when you can’t afford a Ferrari.

    @GrateEggspectations you see more exotic cars in your neighborhood in a week than the rest of us do in a year.  You must be living right and living in the right place. #blessed

    I saw a new model Porsche in a flat light grey this week. Not a choice I would make.

    I'm envious of the number of trash cans. I only have one 😔

    Lol. On point. 

    Thanks, friend. I am just glad to get to live vicariously through my neighbours.

    I actually like it. Just subtle enough. Agreed with @WeberWho that a red interior would pair nicely.

    We moved last year, but used to live in an area where only one small, standard issued can would be collected. To give you an idea, with a small child at home, the diapers alone would fill it completely. Infuriating. We now live in an area where there is no limit and where the garbage collectors will seemingly collect anything. They are incredible!!

    Blue or black for me when it comes to Porsches.

    The guy with the Ferrari was washing a blue Targa in the driveway when I drove by the next time around.  Didn’t get a pic.

    It’s understated, and I suppose I can see the upside of that.  DeMuro owned a red Ferrari for a year and he started to get bugged by every dude he ran into on the road or at the gas station asking him about the car.

    It sounds like he didn’t go with gray because he was too cheap to pay for the red, lol.

    Maybe it was the insurance costs of the red that scared him off. Lol.

    Owning a Ferrari and 'understated' seems a bit pointless. If you want 'grey', buy a diesel merc saloon.

    I think it depends on what you value.  If you value the driving experience, then who cares what color it is.  If you value making heads turn, well then that’s a different story, isn’t it?

    What I wonder is what color makes sense if your ride spends most of the time in the shop? Maybe we should find an Aston Martin owner to ask?

    Black, clearly.

    Grey sucks the life out of a nice looking car. Styling and look have always been and always will be a huge part of the supercar experience.

    To the original thread subject, no exotics here.  But here's a pic of some goodies in my shop: '75 Dodge Power Wagon w/Holmes 440 wrecker, a lowered solid axle '71 Dodge Sweptline pickup and tucked behind the Ram truck is a '70 Dodge Challenger, 440 Six Pack.



    my first truck was a 72 power wagon. loved the built in puddle feature on the hood. break down in the rain and dump a half gallon on the spark plug wires opening the hood

    Here is another gray super car. Spotted at my local grocery store. I would have got a closer picture, but the Huracan's owner was in it

    Beautiful ride. I love the colour (@johnincarolina). I can understand your need for discretion. I also try to show restraint when snapping pics.
