    No, we are not. I can tell you that the pictures for the most part, were taken at Galleria Tower III yellow parking garage, as I park there daily. BTW, I have seen this car, but do not know who owns it.

    True enough. Comparatively to some of the more modern super/hypercars it's actually probably kind of tame...But those other companies you expect to put out a massive supercar that couldn't traverse a speedbump, it just seems uncharacteristic for Benz.

    Lol, actually not the first time I have seen this. Sadly there are a lot of people that write ads akin to that with complete seriousness. Funny that the license plate is "J cash," his actual 560SEL was recently up for sale.

    The J Cash picture is not the plates on the car for sale. He tossed in some other pics to the gallery.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    It's the 1905 Christie, world's first front wheel drive car. It was made to race for the Vanderbilt Cup. It had a V4 engine that produced 60 hp. There's a good article about it here. If you've ever driven a front-wheel drive car, you owe Mr. Christie a little thanks.

    Well then I thank Mr. Christie then because both my alfa's are fwd. I have the later sleeker Sud/Sprint and much later 33 but the Alfasud first produced in 1969 was the best handling fwd for decades. Most of the major car manufactures bought them to dissect and see how alfa did it, it took 30 years for them to match it. The Sud had a simple layout but they handled so well because of low centre of gravity from the boxer engine, the inboard brakes centralized the cars weight reducing unsprung weight at the wheels and it had passive rear wheel steering.

    Here are pics so far.

    The blue one is going to be resold. The car that is now blue is the red car with mismatched hood on the flatbed trailer. The other car that was being pushed into the other trailer is going to be red and will be his keeper.

    If you are talking about the Alfas above, no, it is just an old college buddy of mine who has always been a car nut. He has quite a few old cars. A 1937 Zephyr, a 57 Ford Skyliner , a 1950 Ford two door convertible as well as the two Alfas.
