Shiny Things I Saw: Int'l Auto Show Edition look forward to the 2016 Model Tampa Bay International Auto Show every year at the convention center for many reasons but mostly because I’m a huge nerd. This year, I decided to take about a dozen of my closest friends who are all car nerds just like me and we like to travel in packs. This year, there were some cars that none of us have ever seen in person and we all spent far too much time downstairs looking at the exotic car collection. There was a Lamborghini Murcielago-LP670-4-SV something or other, a super rare Lexus LFA and a couple of Ferrari’s, each costing about as much as a big house in South Tampa and then there was the unicorn: a black Laferarri that is about as expensive as one of those houses that face the water and garbage mountain on Bayshore Drive in south Tampa.
Germany vs. America… I Mean AustraliaA few weeks ago, something happened that I never saw coming: I sold my beloved GTO. I should have seen this coming, being that the silver UFO was car number 36 or 37 - I can't remember which - but I thought I would have it forever. However, I owned that car for nearly 3 years and it was just time. There was only one car that I wanted more than the car I had and this summer was the right time to buy the very thing I had my eye on - a brand new 2015 Chevrolet SS.

The One That Got Away
Craigslist ConfidentialThe older I get, the more my car ADD is affecting me. It’s becoming a problem because at almost every red-light, instead of playing with my iPhone like everyone else seems to be doing, I find myself looking at the cars around me and thinking, “THE LIGHT IS GREEN!! GOOOOOOOO!"
