2013 Scion FR-S

Last night when I pulled up to the valet in our 2013 Scion FR-S at the fancy Fairmont Santa Monica hotel, the valet guy excitedly told me how I had "his car." The exact red and everything, well, minus the exhaust. He continued to go on and on about how he likes to race it up at Buttonwillow. Sometimes he even drifts it. Needless to say, I was impressed. Not very often in L.A. that you meet a guy with a fun car who actually knows how to drive it.

    If valets all buy Toyobarus, maybe they'll be satisfied driving their own cars and less inclined to abuse customer cars. This would be an interesting side effect of expanding the cheap sports car market.

    Yaymx5 had the optimistic outlook on this. My first take was that if the word "drift" comes out of the valet's mouth, I'm out of there.

    Automotive Journalists seem to live it up! Valet this, Valet that. Valet here, Valet there. I would have forgotten how to park by now.
