Holy . . . .WOW!

I was driving into work this morning and look what I pulled up behind? And to make it even more amazing, I followed him all the way to my office building - over 10 miles. He was attending a conference at the Hyatt in the same complex! This is the very first 599 GTB that I have seen in Orange County - and most likely one of only a handful in North America.

Think of all the cooincidences that had to occur for me to end up behind this guy just at that time. Can you say . . . Twilight Zone???

I took these pics with my camera phone. Say what you will about living in Orange County. But the car-gazing is second to none.

I thought of Alroumi when I saw this.

Wow.

You know B...if that guy got a chance to gander at your Brabus, I'm sure he would be thinking "Holy ####, WOW!" as well.

BTW...the first picture is cool...the back of his and the hood of yours.

Thanks!

That pic was dangerous too - I had to go like 120 mph to catch up to him, then take the picture with one hand while trying to control my car with the other. Quite a feat. I should be dead.

I was driving to LA once when a guy in an F430 Spyder drove by me, slowed down and gave me the thumbs up. I felt like the prom queen.



I have a thing for these Italian beauties.

Your Bad 55 is no slouch and can stand proudly next to any of the Italian makes. Plus, it's more reliable.
