I imagine this thing is much like a sportsbike, get it straight before going anywhere near the power...Did it look like a difficult car to drive fast?

Marcos (Adams) GT spotted on Penshurst Road Roseville this morning. I think it was one of the pre-1969 cars (as I used to have a Corgi model of one when I was younger). Painted in Gulf Racing colours ..... looked like it had been driven straight out of the farm shed it had been sitting in (forgotten) for the last 30 years.

Bet it wasn't as blinged as this GT I saw on Rodeo Drive a couple of weeks ago. A Gemballa version of the Carerra GT. The walk started with a spotting of a Roll Royce Phantom Drop Head and culminated in this ... saw so many Ferrari F430s and Lamboghini Gallardos that they had lost all "spotted" factor in that location!

I was trying to explain the the girl I was with how much that car would cost by converting UK pounds to Australian Dollars and multiplying it by the AUS/US M3 price differential and ended up in a complete mess!

That's what I have been thinking about bimmers here... Just so damn many of them now, and 99% stockers!

Hot colour on thge Porsche though, and they sound unreal... Shame they look so odd though? I preffer the GT3RS, it looks more normal...

As for supercars though, give me a Pagani, or for sure shock factor, a Keonigsegg!

The GT I saw was deffinitly not BLINGED up like that. Colour was Silver but still looked sexy in the flesh. it had 20" wheels on it and the brake disks filled the entire cavity..... The whole car just looked hardcore

It's a bit WTLW but if you haven't seen the Shane Warne car crash video it's quite amusing:

The fragments of his broken rear light assembly are being auction on e-bay:

Happened to drive down a side street in Lane Cove today and saw one of those bright orange new TTs, and a neon yello Porsche!

With the V2 ( i think you have procede if i remember correctly) i would have loved to have read that you beat the M3, but with traffic fun is a definate no no.

We did not play hard.

Mike will attest to the V2 vs M3. I do have supporting suspension mods so that helps in the twisties and with the LSD I think both cars will probably be equal. But an M is better suited to sustained harsh conditions (such as the track) where the 335 will suffer due to it's design.

That said an M is an M and regardless of what car you drive it has a certain prestige that a 335 won't ever have. But the 335 bang for buck with a few mods is better value IMHO and I think will surprise many an M3 even in stock form.

Pearl white Gallardo at 6am this morning, North Balwyn Coles intersection, no doubt on it's way home from an early morning fang somewhere.

The best time of the morning to drive is about 3:30 am... most people are either home from a night out, or not left home for an early shift, and the taxis are all on their breaks...

perfect for a run around sydney anyway!
