Don't know about "rich"...maybe just a bit pretentious. There's more of us in the 'burbs...

I noticed lots of German cars driven by young people. Not a lot of Camaros that's for sure.

I didn't see any when I was out west this August also. Just the way it goes sometimes. But then there are times where everywhere I go there are Camaros! Pack mentality I guess!

i was living downtown vancouver and had my car in the underground garage for most of the time... there is just no where to really drive around with because everything was close by my condo..

5 min drive to work - or 12 min bus ride.... not worth the hassle, parking, anxiety over some person hitting it... i took the bus lol!

fun on the weekends and late night around stanley park and sea to sky to whistler!

There are more R8s, Lambos, Vantages, Maclearns, Ferraries and M3s in Vancouver than you can shake a stick at. That's what makes driving a Gen5 such a treat in Vancouver.
