Greenwich-Stamford must be Tesla central as far as CT is concerned. Those cars are great for moving around the immediate area. I think driving down to NYC and back without charging is pushing the limits. There's nothing fun about driving down there in a sleek new car and coming back on Metro-North. lol

That's good to know.

I also thought you were going to put a video like this guy:

Agreed. Now it's like, "Oh. Everyone has one of those." *shrug*

I do feel like more people own them now than they used to. Hell, a few years ago, I ran across a lease for a Ferrari F430 for only 2 grand a month. The miles allowed was way too low for me, though.
Another friend of mine is in some kind of car club where they put in $40k and then trade cars every few months for another $10k here and there. He is in all sorts of "super" cars.

Yep, and where that tree is on the left side is the McClaren dealership. And on the right down the hill (behind the photo, LOL) is the Aston Martin dealership. That spot of Putnam Road is heaven on earth for exotic cars enthusiasts.

Up here in Northern FFC, I've been seeing more and more Porsche. Didn't know people had so much disposable income in 2014, lol!

Saw a new Rolls Royce on Main St in Rocky Hill yesterday. Not sure what model. I don't think RR puts model names on their cars. I was stopped behind it and didn't see a name only the RR symbol.

Where can you buy a Rolls Royce in CT ?
