I figured youd like that sticker placement jim ;-)

Oh and incedentally, I found out that the car belongs to Wyclef Jean (did i spell that right?). I dont really listen to much rap - but I guess most of you will know who he is.

speed safely,
Joe

Was the F1 actually getting worked on at the gas station?
What kind of person let's a gas station work on a million dollar car?
Oh wait you said he was a rapper. Makes sense now.

OK, Yes it was being worked on at the service station. And no, the guy's not stupid for bringing it there. You do see the "slant-nose" 911 there right? And maybe the RR in the back? Theres also a local guy with a 360 Modena Spyder that comes in there all the time. The owner/head technician is this european (speaks with a french accent, but i think he actually lived in England), who knows it all about sports cars. And yes he was working on while i was taking pictures, which is why i didnt get up close. From being a technician, I know how annoying it is to have customers looking over your shoulder, much less taking pictures...

Next time i see the 360 Ill snap some shots and post em.

Speed safely,

Joe

One day in my Firebird, a few years back, I was coming home from my lady's house, just as I exited 280N down through Woodside hills and I seen this silver sports car coming up fast from behind. Didn't know what it was. Then he passed me. No plates. And then I said OH S*it. It was a Mclaren F1. The reason why I know is because the badge on the back was the same one from the video game I had. So I tried to speed up to get a better look from the side. And as I sped up, he sped up. I got up to about 80mph on Woodside road, which is a 35mph speed limit, and I got about 50 feet from the bumper, and then finally he straight took off. And then turned right towards Atherton, one of the most prestigious and wealthy areas to live in the US, let alone the Bay Area. It was probably Larry Elison, CEO of Oracle, since he lives in Atherton. And yes I know, there is VERY few McLarens to ever be shipped to the US. Probably like under a total of 5. That's the reason he probably didn't have plates. He probably shipped it here illegaly. But this is what I saw. And yes, I almost soiled my drawers as well.
