If you like cars,
really fine cars, it's hard to resist an invitation from Symbolic
Motor Car Company to come view their new service, restoration
and event support centers in Sorrento Valley. A brilliant sunny
California day March 25th, 2006, was the perfect day to view and
test drive some incredible automobiles.
For test driving,
the 2006 Bentley Continental GT and Continental
Flying Spur, the Lamborghini Gallardo SE,
the Lotus Elise, and the Rolls-Royce
Phantom were available. And test drive and buy guests
Others enjoyed viewing
very specialized cars like the new Bugatti Veyron,
it's a cool $1.2 million and worth every cent. More unique cars
there included a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO. It's one
of 33 in the world. Pure racing, pure history. It can purr for
you too, for $10 million. A collector's dream car.

And there were so
many more cars on hand. Driving enthusiasts arrived in style.
Jeanne Jones, the famous "Cook It Light"
book author, and her husband Don Breitenberg
were there. They are looking for a new Rolls Royce. They already
have one, but two sometimes really is better than one.
a big fan of Lamborghini's, arrived in one his many. The name
plate says it all, A DIABLO. Not sure if that is just about the
car name, or the fact that Ray is devilishly handsome.
More cars there for
the viewing included a Mercedes Gullwing, a Fiat
Dino, and a slew of slick new 2006 models. The new models
included a Mercedes Maclaren, a Bentley Arnage,
Aston Martins, the Lamborghini Gallardo
Coupe and Spyder as well as the Murcielago.
There was the Lotus Elise and Exige on hand also,
the Saleen S7, and the Spyker C8.
You get the idea. Pebble Beach Concours South.
And Symbolic is already
taking orders for the 2007 Phamtom Convertible, named the Phantom
100EX. Priced roughly in the mid-300's, it's creating quite the
buying buzz. Mike Viscuso of the Viscuso
that includes the On Broadway Event Center, DECO'S, E Street Alley,
J.J Steakhouse and so much more, is looking forward to the arrival
of his Phantom 100EX next year. Now that's riding in style!
