Car Porn

October 10, 2009

I tortured myself today and the truth is, I liked it. In fact, I liked it so much, I may even do it again tomorrow.

Why?, you may ask. The answer is simple. I’m a car addict. I always have been, to tell the truth. Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll all tell you I have 10W-40 running through my veins. Like any addict, I do have my drugs of choice and with the Barrett Jackson auction in town, I’m likely to overdose. That’s because Barrett Jackson specializes in muscle cars from the ’60s and ’70s, along with some amazingly cool customs and other one-of-a-kind rides. It’s car porn, pure and simple.

'65 Shelby

I want this.

I spent a few hours wandering around the Mandalay Bay Convention and Events Center this afternoon trying hard not to drool on the acres of gleaming metal spread out across the property. Shelby’s, Camaros, ‘Cudas, Nomads, Ferraris, Austin Healys, Auburns and more all polished to perfection and gleaming under the lights. It’s enough to want to make me rob a bank.

And this.

And this.

This too.

This too.

Gladly (well, not really), I can’t afford to do anything more than look at these incredible machines right now because if I could afford to buy, I don’t know if I’d ever stop. Hey, who needs a $1 million house? Give me a two bedroom condo and a $1 million garage, and I’ll be happy.

Yeah, this too.

Yeah, this too.
