Lots of fancy cars in Pacific Grove and Carmel. I saw a lifetime’s worth of Ferrari’s, Lotus’ and Lamborghini’s – just driving down the street. The world record for most expensive car ever sold was set here over the weekend – 38 million dollars for a ’62 Ferrari GTO.
I was casually walking by a guy getting into his 90’s era Aston Martin, holding a ‘Best in Show’ trophy. He was in the middle of telling a racist joke to another guy. Money buys lots of things – but not class.
So, I was only slightly chagrined each time I saw a $200,000 car on the side of the road waiting on a tow truck. There were plenty of them.
Bode kept asking questions about why these cars were worth so much and why there were red carpets in parking spaces. I did my best to explain, but really couldn’t do it. I love cool old cars, but the whole thing really is pretty stupid. Spend all that money on a car… and you can’t even sleep in it.
