What cars "reside" in your neighborhood?

So, I'm sitting here, looking at the site, and out the front window of the house I see an Aston Martin DB9 pass by. :eek:

I had this discussion with a friend of mine while at the Phila. Auto Show. What I see pass by frequently;

Besides the numerous Benz's and Bimmers,
Lamborghini Gallardo (nice weather mostly)
Ferrari 360 Spyder (")
Maybach
2 Bentley GT Coupe's
Corvette C6 ZO6

We also have a resident crazy person who owns 2 Saleen Mustangs as well as a Ford GT who spends his weekends during the Summer cruising the bypass looking for a race.

So, lets hear what's in your neighborhoods!

Around here (Indianapolis) cars I regularly see driving in my "neighborhood" (My area, not necessarily my sub-division) include:

Ferrari Testerossa
Lambo Gallardo
Bentley GT
Lambo Diablo
And of course some Porsche 911s, and a beautiful blue C6 Z06

However, 6 months ago when I was living up in Naperville, IL (Chicagoland area) there was a guy down the street that had a Mercedes McLaren SLR and I would frequently see a..... hold your breath....... McLaren F1 driving around downtown Naperville. It was by far the most incredible sight I have ever witnessed.

not around where i live now, but in my hometown there is one, read it one house that has a WS6 trans am, a vert C5, an 06 GTO, and what looks to be an old school GTO under a cover.

That, my friends, is one helluva driveway!

next time i'm back there i'll have to remember to bring my camera

Nothing in my hood is fancy shmancy per say. Just your regular old run of the mill vehicles that get you to and from. The higher end cars we see on this side of town are mainly Merc's, beamers, Infinitys, and a few Maseratis (sp?). The area where I work is a wee bit different. It's even more of the high end upper class...beamers, Jags, Merc's, Lotus', a black Lambo, red Ferrari, Porsche, Hummers galore, etc.

There's a '57 sedan Delivery, street machine, a '33 Willis Street Rod (same guy), a '66 Chevelle SS396, and a '69 Olds 442. There used tobe a guy with a '67 Jag XKE, but I think he sold it?

our neighborhood is full of trucks and SUVs... welcome to TX, right?

on our block, though, there is a really nice Lexus IS300 that I'm going to buy if they ever decide to get rid of it before we move away... lol

Of all the "cool" cars I see around, the one I'd like to have is this one...



A friend of mine owns it.

Black on red shelby GT500 heavily modded. Guy works at Ford dealership, go figure. I plan on seein him at a redlight in a 5th gen one day.

Other than that there are a couple tuners and about 2-3 thousand chromed out Z-71's about 4 ft off the ground sittin on 40s with straight pipes out the back. Almost every one of em is red or black too.

Let's see, where do I begin???: B7 RS4, GT500 convertible, bunch of tricked S-classes and 300C's, Navi's, Bimmers, a few Lambo Murcielago's, one Ford GT, a few Ferrari's, bunch of Toyota's and Honda's among many others. The cars listed are the ones that appear most frequently, or at least the ones I pay attention to.
