I doubt I'll be plunking down $20 to gaze, but maybe other folks might be interested:

The newest tourist attraction in Orlando, Exotic Car Gallery, announced it will be opening today, filling the space vacated by the former Millenia Art Gallery at 4190 Millenia Blvd., with a display of rare, high-end "supercars," such as a $1.7 million Bugatti Veyron. Admission is $20 for adults and $10 for children.

How do you spell "Tourist Trap"???? They just had a big "Super Car Expo" in downtown W. Palm Beach Last weekend and wanted a $40 admission!!! As much as I love these cars, was I there? 40 bucks to walk city streets and look at parked cars!! I'll save that money to spend at Sebring!! /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

I had a chance to go to the expo last weekend, but I just couldn't bring myself to pay $40 to walk around and gawk at the cars. I'm not sure that I would drive to Orlando just to have a look at cars that I have absolutely no chance of ever even riding in.

Here in WPB, we have Ragtops. A dealer of some interesting cars. Admission there used to be free, now it's $8 according to their website. Cheaper and closer /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Sounds like a shopping mall parking lot in Malibu.

There is a 'Gallery' like that in Denver. Though there is no charge to enter and look. Its just well off the beaten path. When I was last there, I walked in and was greeted by a Porsche Carrera GT, a Lamborghini Murcielago, a Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari F430 and two Porsche GT3 RS's. Pretty jaded when the 911 turbo sitting in the corner is passed over as an 'ordinairy' Porsche...

Yeah, Anthony, they have that Ferarri club thing down here too, in fact you can go out to Moroso Raceway down here and watch them do hot laps and stuff, and get up close in the paddock.That's only $10-$15 /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/thumbsup.gif!!!
