Danville d'Elegance

I stopped by the Danville d’Elegance car show this last weekend. For those that don’t know what the show is, it is a high end show that takes place on the main street in Danville, CA. By “high end” I mean that there were 100+ vehicles there, worth (easily) 15-20 million dollars, in my estimate. They had some old cars that have really been shinned up nicely, but the show is mostly about the new cars. The EXPENSIVE new cars. If it retails for less than $100k, it is hard to find in this show. A run down of some of the cars I saw: Bugatti Veyron, Porchse, Ferrari, Dodge Viper, Lamborghini Diablo, Ford GT, Bentley, AC Cobra, Lotus, Corvette, Maserati, McLaren, Audi, BMW, Mercedes & The Bugatti a few more times for good measure. I should say this now, I’m a HUGE fan of the Bugatti Veyron. The fact that there was on they and I got to see it in person…. wow. Its like meeting your favorite author/sports star/movie actor/etc. Now that is out of the way, as I said, there were well over 100 cars, so the list above is incomplete. There were a TON of Ferrari’s, at least 4 Diablo’s, a dozen or two Porches of all makes and models (Including a GT which was SWEET) — just to name a few.

If you are interested in checking out the pictures, I uploaded 166 pictures. You can check them out on my Gallery Page. For those that don’t, I linked the Bugatti, a Ferrari and a Viper for you to enjoy.

On a seperate note. I’ve been playing a TON of Halo 3. Enough to get the rank of Gunnery Sargent (which is the coolest rank… next to Master Chief, of course). Between Halo 3 and several extremely long blog posts back to back — I’ve kinda written myself out. Hence the picture post, instead of something real. I’m going to see if I can sucker John into writing something for me, for Thursday. So hopefully there should be something else of interest for you guys. I promise by next week I’ll be mostly back in shape. I do honestly have a bunch of ideas, I can just never get into the mood of writing them. So, for now, just enjoy the purdy cars. Please?
