List a car or truck you have recently seen on the street that made your "car hormones" secrete that special fluid, causing your head to turn and follow that beauty down the street.

Tell us what you saw!

I'll start it out with two I saw this morning going by my workplace.

>> A Yellow Mustang GT Convertible, fairly new and awesome!

>> Another Mustang, Black one of those Saleen set up fastbacks, fairly new with those cool rectangular exhaust outlets.... WoW!

Restored 54 Chevrolet, turquoise with a white top, in line for a safety inspection. Looks like it just got out of the showroom!

First ever sighting of a Fiskar Karma. A black one cruising effortlessly down Collier Blvd. in North Miami Beach. Looked like a shark cruising for a meal.

Some late model Ferrari. Didn't recognize the model. Kinda non-descript looking. The only reason I payed attention is because it was making all kinds of noise.

It sounded like a tin can. Not a good engine roar at all. Embarrassing. I zeroed in to see just what was making all the commotion, and saw the prancing pony. In all honesty, your basic riceburner with fart cans sounds better.

I watched the driver get out, curious to see just what kind of badboy was driving this beast. To my astonishment out popped what looked like your basic accountant. Bald, paunchy, sloppy dressed, flipflops. I guess when you see a Ferrari, you expect James Bond to be driving, not Marvin Milquetoast.

This morning I met an ugly honda going well over the speed limit, being driven by a twenty-something chick who was putting on makeup. I cranked my head around trying to see if she was going to cause an accident. It's a wonder I didn't have an accident myself.

None of them cause me to secrete anything anymore. Absolutely no style anymore, they all look basically the same with little putter engines in them.

Driving to Hartford, CT today. Came upon a bunch of 60's era muscle cars. GTOs, Chargers, Roadrunners. They were in a line going along the highway. They all had Mass plates and they all turned into a nondesript country road out in the middle of nowhere. ??????

Some kind of Maserati. It sounded awful. I could hear it traveling through the parking lot and at first thought some car had a bad muffler. When it parked I realized what it was. It looked very cheap and insubstantial.

It wasn't the Quattroporte or the Ghibli. Been spotting quite a few Maserattis around here lately. Getting good at IDing them now. Looked like some older model. Honestly it looked like a piece of junk. (and I'm a fanboy of Italian cars)
