I dont even think it runs. Considering the prices charged by Ferrari Maserati Vancouver, i dont blame the guy.

Growing up in the 90's, everyone was into imports. I thought my brother in laws Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX was the shit because you rarely ever saw those around while everyone rolled in their Civics and Integras lol

Anyone still have pictures of the Boom Autoshow back in the late 90's/ early 2000's? Or pics from the first few Revscene meets?

I got my first exotic back in 2007 and I remember it being an event driving it. People would always stop and look. Now I will see 10-15 of the same car just walking around downtown for an hour in the summer. Even when I am London or other places in Europe the volume is not the same is here. I think the shift happened roughly around 2009 but I could be wrong.

I do, but this is back before most people had digicams I believe. Had a lot of photos of car shows.

Remember all those Garage 5 civics and tegs, that boom plus or whatever ek hatch with buddy club kit, and there were a lot of modified accord sedans

I think it might go without saying, but it's the owner of the restaurant. He's an eclectic guy, if you go for lunch he's sometimes lifting weights in the restaurant...

He does drive it every so often. Usually to go to the liquor store... Lol. It's also on a battery tender everytime I see it.

Sidenote: great Greek restaurant for those who are interested.
