Speaking of turning heads, I was parked on Ocean Blvd. in Carmel yesterday. I was in town for a lunch meeting with friends and parked on the street which gets pretty crowded on a Sunday mid-day this time of year.
When I returned to my car, it was bracketed by a brand new 2004 Porsche 911 and a late model 2003-2004 Jag.
There was also a small crowd surrounding the car - they could have cared less about the Jag or the Porsche, they were too busy drooling over the XLR.
Even the regular crowd of business owners who I am know tell me they have yet to see another XLR on the streets (this in a town that sports every make/model of exotic and luxury car you can imagine).
