My midnight rendezvous

It's been a while since I went out to play at night. Met a few friends, took some pics in a place we weren't supposed to be.



















Video to follow.

Roll out vids:

I was driving my friend's car because he was doing the filming. I was in the last one to leave, not the car that was still there. Micaiah is the one on the right next to the silver one. Didn't realize what he sounded like till now.



Micaiah and I were the first to leave in this one. But the second on the return back. I drive him real gentle. Realized quite a few scraped.

I lived in California for a minute and while I consider the entire nation to be car crazy, as a matter of fact it's probably a defining aspect of our culture, California is just super hardcore into cars, both classic and modern.

But California is wonderful and so are those cars and so is Siu Blue Wind.

Actually, from the looks of the buildings in the background of some of the pictures, I'd say it's the parking structure behind some offices on Hacienda Dr. past Dublin Blvd.

Yes. Ruin the boring original paint and make it something unique.



Same color ride just looks like a gang to me. As a real interest would generate some creativity.

Note: The above bike probably doesn't appeal to too many people, but its definitely more of a conversation piece than other Y-foils... while also having better components than most
Note #2: I'm not dissing the cars... they are nice. I'm dissing the owners

I've always said this, visual loudness doesn't always equal good looking. I think with those cars subtle is a much better thing. We're not looking at some 18 year old's honda civic here.

Agreed! I like understated subtlety and lots of horses under the hood, myself.

This, for example

agreed.

...But that really shouldn't dissuade someone from wanting to make it different than another's and rims aren't that much custom. I think my perspective on why one would join a car club is tragically out of tune to those that actually join a car club.

My apologies.

How many of those cars are actually the same color? Hard to see, isn't it?

Note: The above bike probably doesn't appeal to too many people, but its definitely more of a conversation piece than other Y-foils... while also having better components than most

Yes, it could be a conversation piece but in having manners, I don't make it a habit of bashing other people's things. Perhaps being critical in helping a friend yes, but that doesn't apply here.

Note #2: I'm not dissing the cars... they are nice. I'm dissing the owners

Why are you dissing the owners? Because the cars are not to your liking?

I didn't have $375,000 in the checkbook. Should have done a transfer, dangit. Would have been nice to have one in 50. Especially the orange one!

I get it, power of deception... I obviously don't get the lack of visual identity.... I get function over fashion. I do. I figure people would want both. Especially in a car thats pretty damn nice to begin with.

I wish it was like 4 yrs in the future and they were just coming out with those. I could totally maybe get one then. On another note I can still drool about it. The only car I have ever taken an interest in. Everything about it is beautiful.
