One of those lives in a neighborhood not far from me. Very sleek looking machine. I saw an Aston DB7 on the road this morning.

If you go to the right part of the city around here, you can see plenty of high-end Eurocars, but what i really love about Southern California is all of the beautiful old American heavy metal. There's a tattoo shop just near me (actually there are about four), and a good chunk of their customers seem to drive old Chevy and Fords and other beautifully-maintained cars from the '50s and '60s.

One of the most unusual cars that i see around here is a bright red auto-rickshaw. Sounds like a cross between a lawnmower and a sewing machine.
