You don’t usually see a McDonald’s teamed up with a gas station.  We saw this one in Marina del Rey CA, today, August 14, 2009, and so we took a pictue to show this facet of the “on the road” culture.

Just another Ferrari?

August 14, 2009

MVC-002F

While waiting for a bus to take us to the Santa Monica Public Library, we wondered if we should pull out the old camera and maybe get a photo for our car-spotting blog.  So we took the camera out, turned it on, and voila! this car pulled up to stop for a red light.  We thought Oh, it’s just another Ferrari, but then we realized that some poor folks (such as the ones who live up there in Alameda) might not get to see such exotic cars as often as the people in L. A. do; so we took this picture just for those unfortunate folks who live in the city that is near Berkeley.
