I spent last weekend driving our 2011 BMW 528i. Sunday morning we went for a drive up the coast. We weren't alone...

There are some cars I see on the road that make me feel like a kid. They make me want to slow down or speed up just to pace them and bask in their awesomeness. See exhibits A and B below:

I wanted to gawk. This was the first Veyron I've seen on the road. But this guy was on it, weaving in and out of traffic. It wasn't long before he was out of sight.

About 20 miles up the road traffic slowed. We drove beside R8-guy for miles. His arm hung out of the window like this the whole time. Those fingers must've been numb by the time we finally parted ways.

It was a good day for sightseeing.
