    The video below talks about the color changing BMW and how it works. I found it interesting.

  • ATL airport- There is a couple tickets on the windshield for parking in a handicap space. But he has no license plate so I’m guessing he tosses the ticket and goes about his business. Genius or douche? Latter has my vote. 

    Beautiful ride either way. No clue how it clears the speed bumps.

    The like is for the car, not the a$$hat who drives it. 

    Where I reside, front and back plates are mandatory. The folks I know with high end vehicles tend to skip the front plate and instead keep it in the glove compartment.

    Agree with the like for the ride and not the richardhead who parked it.

  • Most likely a slimy douche that thinks he’s a genius. A scary combo. Hopefully I don’t know the whole story and he will pay his dues when he returns. Maybe he was in a dire emergency and had to drive the car to the airport, did not want to park next to others so parked there and was willing to pay the consequences. But that missing tag makes me think that’s less likely. 

    These lambo guys always seem to be parked front and center. The previous car I posted here was parked right in front of a very busy poker room in Austin. People walking by all night and all day. Maybe they are willing to trade showing it off for a few scratches here and there?

    Who drives that to the airport? Did they have a passenger and bags?  Most airports have license plate scanners when you enter parking and scan again when you leave to make sure you’re not just pulling a new ticket to make a long stay a short stay.  He’s not so smart, he’ll get nailed.
  • Haha I have no idea if they had bags or not. Really hoping this was a single douche and not a set of them. It was there when I left and still there yesterday when I returned. And we do have the tag scanners. But if there is no tag to scan then I’m not sure how that works. I’m sure he will pay for it somehow. Karma seldom sleeps.

    The VIN should be visible thru the windshield, and a quick call to the DMV...

    Would be fun to watch it get towed.  Steve Jobs used to do something similar.  There was a weird law in Cali that allowed no tags for 6 months on a new car.  So he just got a new car every 6 months and was notorious for parking in handicap spots.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Proud and vocal Vegan.  I don't see why an animal should lose their life, just so you can have a snack.

    In a country such as this, where there are fruits, grains, and nuts in abundance, how can one think that he must eat the flesh of dead animals?

    I tie right the wing and exhaust and drag it right up.

    I think just at Apple though, right?  I think it paints a slightly different picture given that this was mostly at the company where he was the founder and CEO.

    He probably just forgot to put his hang-tag on the mirror.  It happens when you are late for your flight and you have to get your walker out of the passenger side.

    Where do they think they are blocking traffic like that?…. Ottawa?!

    They have a front end lift for the speed bumps/steep driveway approaches.

    The valet drivers like to put the nicest cars right up front. Adds prestige to the establishment and the owner gets their car retrieved quicker.

    Florida plates charging in Gulfport MS. Her next charge would be in Pensacola or in Hammond LA. The KIA owner told me that it’s a woman driver.

    And the ease of access to charging is...?  😁

  •  Hope yours wasn't on there @JohnInCarolina, seriously though, somehow I think fedex was involved

    It contained 142 VW ID4 electric cars and a number of Porsche electric cars. It has been on the various electric car forums for a couple of days. Some people on those forums had been waiting nearly a year and their cars were aboard. Quite a few gas burning cars also.

    Thankfully my Ferrari is being driven from Italy to the US.  Dodged a bullet there…

    @JohnInCarolina I can lessen your concerns, your Ferrari was being used as entertainment value for the crew on the main deck.  High speed wheel rollers and the exhaust sound was piped for all to enjoy.  Should the ship stay afloat you may get your car.  🏎

    Hopefully your direct line to https://www.ferrari.com/en-US  is keeping you updated.  B)

    They fight ship fires with salt water. Just something to think about.
