Saw this V12 XKE at a customers shop last week. The paint was flawless.

What did you do to get kicked out? So, you can't park your car in a parking lot anymore?

If you don't have the permission of the lot owner to hold a car show and they or the businesses there complain, yes the police can kick you out.

Nice retro look. Flared wheel wells leading to a small spoiler on the rear deck. Those wheels and tires would never fit if they were stock. Nice set of Ankle Burners.

You would think that business owners would be happy to have people in their lots(that would normally be empty). Some of those people, who wouldn't be there without the  little car show, might drift into their business and buy something. It looks like they're far enough away that they won't be taking up any prime parking spots, and it also looks like it brought in a lot of people.

Saw this Mazda Cosmo at a car gathering this morning. Had never seen one in the flesh before. On the way to the event I saw a Tesla Roadster drive by which I had only seen in photos before today

Maybe they don't want the low-life automotive riffraff scaring away their customers.:-)
In reality, you are on private property, and the owner sets the rules. He could be liable for anything that happens on his property, so if he doesn't want you there, you can't be there.

A few years ago, Cars & Coffee in Houston got kicked out of shopping center they had permission to be in because one of the stores in the center complained about all the people interfering with their customers.

Today’s one and only interesting sighting (except a new Miata, which is likely only interesting to me 🤪)

When I was at school in the 6th form my friend Michael Eccleston drove one of these, it had a Ford 1600 engine in place of the original rotary. We were 18 at the time, his Dad was in the motor trade.

I rode in it quite a few times. We had no idea what it would be worth one day! This was 1975/6.

Hay Hay, what about this Ford Skyliner masquerading as an Edsel.  That could pass for a factory built car.

Exiting US 101 in Windsor CA.  You can go a long time and not see an Lamborghini Aventador in the wild.  Photo doesn't do the paint color justice.

Today’s cool spot - anyone know the story with the oval license plate?  Is that an original German one?
