In N. Austin, a bunch of pampered bucket-list cars rest comfortably awaiting their masters’ arrival. Ready to play, they are watered, exercised and bathed. Here is an assortment of them. Heavy with Ferraris and Porsches, the cars range from a 1920ish Rolls Royce to American muscle. Perhaps, most stunningly, there are two (2) Ferrari F40s. Check out Petrol Lounge.
Austin’s Petrol Lounge is a first class operation with many outstanding cars. These cars are kept ready to go, are regularly exercised, bathed and watered, ready to romp when you are.
Older cars are banned from the city center during work days but on the weekend they invade the city. I was not really prepared and was unable to be in position to photograph most of the interesting cars that zoomed by me. It was kind of comical, as I would give up waiting for one to appear, then one would sneak by. It happened a bunch of times but I was, at least, able to get a long shot of this dream car. Ferrari made 800 of these sleek, v12 powered Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 (Grand Tourismo) cars between 1968 and 1971. (Note the line of cannon behind the car, at the front of the Hôtel des Invalides.)
Here is another more practical, four seat Ferrari with a front-mounted V12. I discovered this Ferrari 412 on a flatbed approximately above Hitler’s last stand in his underground bunker in Berlin, and a block or two inside the old Berlin Wall. Almost 3000 of this series was built from 1975 to 1989. I like these handsome cars a lot and found a similar one for sale a while back on N. Lamar in Austin.
