I spotted a Maserati GranTurismo in Jersey City (on the 1&9 Pothole Farm, no less!). Black paint w/ cinnamon leather interior. Nice.

My favorite road. It's tolerable at really off times, but from where I live by the water, I often drive an extra 9 miles with tolls to avoid that road.

I should take a pic, but I see an early E23 733i when I go to classes at grad school. It must be a professor or someone who works at the school that drives it. I'll snap a pic if I get the chance.

I saw an X6 M in the parking lot at my softball game.

This was on the piece between 3 and the Tonnelle circle (near which the Vogons are slowly building a Hyperspace Bypass).

It's really the only way north out of town. But I usually go 78 (i.e. south) and loop around to avoid it.

Not recent, and not really notable cars per se, but a couple of dumb, car-related photos taken a while back with my phone.

Worst parking job I've seen in a while, and a Caravan with a BMW roundel (very hard to see, I know).

I see an E23 745i fairly regularly at one of the places we go to lunch...

There's a thread around here somewhere with pic of a Cayman with flames painted all over it....I saw it today.

I also saw an Audi R8, and 2 separate incidents where cars were driven head first into the center lane divider on the highway.
