Cars in the Bay Area

The cars in this area are definitely a bit nicer than in Raleigh. The average level of carness tends to be a bit newer, a bit cleaner, and a bit more luxurious (more Lexus and BMWs, fewer Kias, etc). There are also a lot more Porsche 911s and BMW M3s. There are also more Audi S4 and S6s, and Mercedes AMG class cars.

Last night I saw either a Ferrari 360 Modena or an F430 (probably the former) parked in a valet spot outside of a restaurant. A few days ago I saw an older T-top Nissan 300ZX, that was pretty cool.

    i saw a datsun 240Z here in thailand the other day. it’s the first Z car i’ve seen in a month!

    also, there are a very large number of VW beetles (the old ones) in perfect condition. maybe it’s the weather, i dunno, but these cars look new. crazy.

      That’s awesome. They might have continued selling VM beetles for more years in Thailand after they discontinued them here. I’ve been thinking that I’ve been seeing a lot fewer of them here than when we were younger.

        that’s a good point, you definitely could be right about them continuing to sell them in thailand after the US.

        also, the ones you do see now-a-days in the US are still a little worn, even if they’ve been done up again. it’s such a stark difference from the ones here, which look like they’re only 5-8 years old.

        i’ll try to take some pictures of a couple so you can see what i mean.
