I'm agree with 95% of what you said, except the Lotus comment... or maybe that's just me.Living in Houston, a Lotus would not even be noticed here; maybe an older esprit would draw some conversation at a cars and coffee but outside of that, no. On my way home yesterday I saw two McLaren’s, a new Aston, 4 new Ferrari’s, 1 classic, and the rolls suv, I don’t even count Bentleys anymore as they are really like Camry’s in this part of town. My commute is around 4 miles.
Monmouth County, where Germans sedans are as common as Accords and Camry's and Bentley's and Rolls are generic. Also why other than the classics, I can't stand modern Euros
