Let's face it, Texas is the greatest state in the union. We can all agree on that. So it only makes sense that drivers of vehicles from other states would select vanity license plates that honor Texas.
Audi drivers from the mountain west seem to really embrace this way of honoring Texas' superiority. (^_^)
Exhibit A: A white Audi Q5 3.2L with vanity plates reading "LUVTEXS". Thank you unknown Arizona driver, for your support of all things Texan.
Exhibit B: This car may have a plate from Montana, but its owner clearly has his priorities straight. He opted to go with a personalized plate that reads "1 TRU TXN".
Well done good sir. You are clearly a person with excellent taste. You probably own many leather-bound books and reside in an apartment that smells of rich mahogany.

Panama City, Panama is a booming metropolis in Central America. It's a hub for international trade and there are massive skyscrapers going up all over the city. Of course, there are exotic cars
(including this sizzling Red Nissan GT-R
Exotic Cars in Panama - Red Nissan GT-R
A side note: How many times have you had some college kid giddily proclaim to you, "I'm going to "Panama" for Spring Break!" ? You reply, "That's wonderful. Central America is a beautiful part of the world and Panama is a wonderful place to vacation." The college kid then gives you a confused look and, while using a tone that suggests you should brush up on your geography knowledge, says something to the order of, "Huh??? Central America?... What?... Uh, I'm going to Flo-rida. You KNOW Pan-am-a C-i-ty." You then shake your head and simply walk away hoping that the kid will stumble upon Panama City, Panama while attempting to use Google Maps on his iPhone to show his buddies the best route for their Spring Break trip.
Here is a peak into the REAL "Panama", i.e. not Panama City, Florida =) Chevere!

Donald Trump is building this tower in Panama City. Notice the tower crane on top.
Awesome Twisted Tower!
Look at the colors and the twisting architecture. Truly a beautiful building.
Interesting Fact: The Panamanian currency is the Balboa (It is only made in coins these days. Paper Balboas are not longer printed). Since its creation in 1904, the Balboa has been tied to the US Dollar on a 1 to 1 basis. So, if you're coming from the USA, just bring dollars and spend them, as they are accepted in trade with no problems. In fact, the US Dollar is the paper currency that is used in Panama (since paper Balboas are no longer printed.)
This is what license plates look like in Panama.

Guess who won the drag race between the Red Nissan GTR and the Black Hyundai. Hmm...
Some pre-Thanksgiving exotic and sports car sightings. Photos by Javier A. Ortiz.
This Black and Yellow Lamborghini Murcielago can't hide in traffic. Wiz Khalifa would approve.
"There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's MasterCard." (Or twin Honda S2000's)
Red Honda S2000 + Yellow Honda S2000 = 'Mastercard' or 'Ketchup and Mustard'. Take your pick. Either way, this combo is sick!
See the resemblance?!?!
Friend of the site Javier A. Ortiz sends these photos of a Red Nissan GTR at, wait for it, ...Walmart (Yes, you read that right. Walmart, aka the home of falling prices.)
Memo to all you car spotters out there: Apparently, Walmart is the new supercar Mecca. (Ok, maybe one supercar at one Walmart in one town does not mean that every Walmart is a great supercar spotting location, but this sighting should be a reminder that supercars can show up in unexpected places.)
Bonus Pic: This silky smoothy Silver Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed is brought to you courtesy of friend of the site Kyle Smith. He spotted it while out on and about in SoCal. Thanks for the pic Kyle!... Seriously sick sedan!...
You can tell this is the "Speed" edition of the Continental Flying Spur from looking at the special wheels. These multi-spoke wheels are fitted by the factory on "Speed" edition Bentleys. The Fly Spur Speed was introduced in 2009, has a top speed of 200mph, and rockets from 0-60mph in about 4.7 seconds! This is incredible performance for a car that weighs in at over 5,600 lbs! (As a reference, the standard edition Flying Spur goes 0-60mph in a relatively turtle-esque 5.2 seconds.)
Friend of the site Javier A. Ortiz was kind enough to send in this picture of a black Bentley Continental GTC he spotted while vacationing at an undisclosed location. The color scheme of black body and black convertible top is VERY popular for the GTC. In fact, about half of the GTC's I see have this exact same color scheme.
Memo to America's Bentley GTC owners: Let's mix things up a bit! I would like to see Bentley GTC's in more exotic colors. Your Bentley GT owning brethren are bold enough to roll out with their cars in red, green, blue, and other colors. A GTC with a canary yellow body and a canary yellow top would be unique and a total win. We could call it the "Look at Me GTC"... Mansory, feel free to start working on that.
