That F-Type is really nice, just saw a red one on my way home yesterday, definitely a head turner on the street.

Rev that 6 is pretty sweet, I'm a big fan of a nice wagon...glad Mazda is toning down the front fenders on the current models.

My new favorite...not a car, but an SAV...the E70 X5 M...

...this one belongs to one of my best customers. Since these pics were taken he has added Dinan exhaust and software, and I just ordered the Dinan suspension kit for him today. This thing hauls ass.
He also "deleted" the front and rear reflectors...I'll try to get new pics, looks so much cleaner without them and with the painted flares. Speaking of the paint, the Monte Carlo Blue is just sick, no pictures could ever do it justice.

A friend took delivery of his Bianco Monocerus '14 Aventador last month (not his car pictured), and the amount of improvements the factory has made to the car in just 2 years is staggering. Can't think of a better new car... assuming you have $500k to easily part with.

Also really loving the new Evoque as well, the new Autobiography trim sounds very lavish and refined.

This is probably a copout, but I must say as far as something obtainable, my '14 MINI still ranks high in my 'favorite new car' category. It's literally twice the old car in every way, it's just that great. Probably would get rid of the R56 if it was not a Goodwood. haha

As I stated in another thread on this forum, I'm not a big fan of the 1 series...with the exception being this car...

...in my opinion, one of the baddest cars ever built!

The owner of this car had it shipped up from Florida to my dealership to have it serviced. It was super clean (as you can see) with very low miles.

Seeing that nasty Camaro made me miss the '69 Camaro SS350 I used to have...Garnet Red, tilt wheel, floor shift, power disc brakes, etc...I still regret selling that car to this day.

Looked just like this one...

If I ever do get another one, it will have to be Garnet Red!

Our local Mini Ace is a freak for the 69's. He has 6 you would kill for and 2 more under construction not to mention the 68 he stores in my garage from time to time

Here is one . As with all of them they have ungraded power plants. this is a LS-1 fuel injected.

And my adopted 68

He likes all things 69. This is the only one he has left stock . A two owner matching number 427 ragtop .

So nice man!...thanks for posting those. 1969 is probably the best year for muscle cars.
