    Car looks great. Love the color. Most are silver it seems. Such an under appreciated car. Kinda gets left out of most super car talks but really are incredible. Great work man.

    Found this at a local car show. Not too shabby.

    Picture from a local car show I photographed. Not much, just a BMW Z8, Ariel Atom and a Ferrari F430.

    Since you guys like Skylines, here's a few more Rivsu shots. The first two are the cars in their warehouse awaiting their new owners. The last is a 1972 Skyline GT-R sitting next to another R32. All together there was probably 15 Skylines.

    I travel the state photographing car shows. Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing some vehicles at Rivsu Imports, the largest importers of Nissan Skylines in the world. They import many cars but the Skylines are their bread and butter.

    Now it's their new trucks being recalled for faulty airbags.

    Here's the website for the museum if anyone is interested.

    http://www.tbauto.org

    Something I found incredible is the fact that all of the vehicles run and drive. They have an on site mechanic that drives all the cars periodically. So it's possible to see these vehicles cruising down the road.

    Incredible car museum
    I had the pleasure of going to the Tampa Bay Automobile Museum. The museum is a privately owned collection. The owner is originally from France and has been collecting cars since the 50s. The museum is run by his daughter in law. Her knowledge of every car there, as well as cars in general, blew me away. Listening to her describe how each car was found, bought, imported, etc. was amazing. Many of these cars are the only known remaining example and a few are even the only one ever made. I've never seen 99% of the vehicles in the museum. Most are European but there's a few Americans in there. The owner collects vehicles that were innovative and ahead of their time. There were a few cars that are on loan to other museums (1965 all wheel drive Mustang, 1929 Ruxton and 1770 Fardier De Cugnot were all on on loan around the country until after the first of the year). But what they do have is mind blowing. Talbot Lagos, Cord, Maseratti, Tactra plus tons more. Check out the link to my page before and let me know what you think.

    Got these today Never had a Johan kit before. Not sure if I'm gonna build them or not. The Desoto is actually sealed.

    Not actually on the road today but I had these in our recon department today. Maseratti, BMW 6 series and an E350 (black with black rims) all getting ready to be in our showroom shortly. I fell in love with the red interior on the Maseratti.

    Thanks Sir. If you're interested in checking out more of my pictures, they can be found on Facebook under Bay Area Speed Source. All the pictures are taken by me at local events.

    I live in Clearwater, Florida. I help organize local car shows and meets. We've got a couple cars and coffees every month when the big hitters come out. McLarens, Ferraris, Lamborghinis are a common sight there. I see a decent amount of them on the road. Also helps that the dealership I work at has a high end used car lot built into our Jag and Mercedes lot. You name it and we've had it in our shop. The McLaren caught me completely off guard. As far as I know the Gold Rush Rally didn't come anywhere near Florida.

    Horrible cell phone picture (was at a red light when I seen it passing by) but it's a Gold Rush Rally wrapped McLaren MP4-12C. It's also the inspiration for my latest Ferrari build

    I chase super cars on the weekend (I run a Facebook page full of super car, muscle car, exotic and custom cars that I happen to capture). I shot this on Miami Beach.
