    From the sublime to the ridiculous

    Living in the area of West Palm Beach, FL (which is just across the intracoastal waterway from Palm Beach), allows me the opportunity to see a lot of interesting and expensive cars. The other day as I was driving on I-95 on the way to my dentist when I passed a Maserati (or rather he passed me). Couldn't take a picture because I was driving. I got to my dentist's office and there parked was a nice Rolls Royce (I think I need to find a cheaper dentist). Then on the way home I stopped at Costco and saw this ridicules Sion iQ with eyelashes over the headlights. Very weird.

    Being from the San Francisco Bay Area, I'm used to seeing both spendy and weird cars. The one I'll never forget, though, was seeing a Rolls Royce headed through the drive thru at a Wendy's south of Minneapolis.

    When I was on a driving trip through Utah this summer I passed a large motor home (motor coach?) towing a Bently... trailered of course.

    Purely a matter of choice. These days, Bentley cars come with enough oomph to tow the motor coach!

    That is RIDICULES! Must weigh nearly a ton and need 4 kick stands to hold it up.
