Got a ride out to Ferrari of Houston today, and walked around the city as well. Saw a Z4 M Roadster and a Ford GT rolling around in the city, and then there were at least 50-60 cars filling up the back lot and service bays at the Ferrari Dealer. They had a 288 GTO, some race cars, a 512bbi, 4-5 Testarossas, and 2 458 Challenge cars that I could see, but wasn't allowed to get shots of. Here's what I did get photos of though...

im really loving the new lens I gave myself for Xmas. None of these are edited, all straight off the camera.

thanks man. every dealer ive been to (excluding certain staff members at ferrari of dc) have been absolutely nothing but kind, friendly, and easy going about me coming in and taking photos. they simply ask you dont touch or open any of the cars, which is fine with me. lamborghini carolinas and foreign cars italia in greensboro nc know me well enough by now, that if no one else is around, theyll open doors hoods and what have you for me, and sit in some of the cars as well. just dress decently, be nice, and generally dont be an *******, and youre golden. check em out next time you go by, they have an amazing collection.

i was trying to stop by the lambo dealer while im here as well, but it was on the complete opp side of town, and didnt want the person driving to feel like i was taking advantage. Plus, ive already seen 4 aventadors since august, and im sure there will be one at C&C, so not a big deal. posted in the meet thread as well!

double post, but oh well.

Sorry man, didn't actually see this till just now, haha. Didn't get much flooding here in Clear Lake actually, or at least not around the hotel so much. and thanks about my car! Haven't done anything performance-wise, as it's plenty quick already, but I like my darth vader blacked out theme.

here's a shot of her freshly cleaned and waxed.

I forgot that Jimmie's car was white.
So I followed the guy into the subaru dealer.
Result: I've recruited another m3 guy lol

Then Jimmie showed up.
I followed him to mpower shop.
It was nice meeting Jimmie, guys!
He is a great person imo.
And his white m3 is super clean with a the parts I want haha.
Then I got to meet Ted, Ned and other guys at the shop
Great people, amazing shop to say the least...

Sorry if I bored u guys already! Lol
The end
what up Vu, that was me who you met in the SILVER (not grey) M3. I wouldn't say I was "recruited"... I've been on here since 2007 lol
