Caffeine & Octane: January 2011

Just a week before the ice storm that shut down Atlanta for a week, Caffeine & Octane was alive and well at a new location. For 2011 the event had moved to Mansell Crossing in Alpharetta. We had a more diverse crowd this month. One of owners brought his Ford GT and I drove one […]

Ed’s Car History: 2004 Ferrari 360 Modena F1

This was my first Ferrari. I bought it in December of 2006 with about 1,500 miles. It was one of the best looking Ferraris that I had ever seen. It was Pozzi Blue over Cuoio. It had Scuderia Shields, Daytona Seats, a Rear Challenge Grill, Navigation, and just about every factory option that was available. […]

Spotting Exotics In Atlanta – Chasing Exotics

I remember the excitement that came over me as a child every time I saw an exotic car on the road. In fact, I still go pretty crazy when I see a unique car pass me on the highway or parked in a valet at a restaurant. There is a popular internet activity called car […]

Ed’s Car History: 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo

In 2006, when I was 20 years old, I purchased my first Lamborghini. It was a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo with 17k miles on it. It was Giallo Midas (pearl yellow) with a Nero Perseus Interior. It was an absolutely unreal car and was the first car in the fleet of Supercar Rentals. I sold the […]

Top Gear US: Season 2, Episode 7 Review

This week’s episode of Top Gear reflected a very good response to a lot of the criticisms that I had expressed about the show’s history thus far. I am sure that was not the reason for the change but I found this week’s show to be a very welcome departure from the traditional format. The […]

Ed on TV – MTV True Life: I’m Rallying to LA

In 2004 I was graduating from High School. As a sort of senior trip I entered in the AKA Rally. It was a cross country road rally from New York to Los Angeles. My interest in participating in the event was partially what drew me to the S4. It was the perfect car to load […]

Caffeine & Octane: November 2010

November of 2010 welcomed the arrival of a very special friend – the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Press Car. We became very close. I will write more about that later but in the meantime here are pictures from Caffeine & Octane in November of 2010. This was one of the best Lamborghini turnouts that we have […]
