  • Damn that's a lot. I only missed an E-Type (which is the first time i've seen one in my life) and a couple 570Ss and 600LTs

    • Yeah. A lot of these spots were on the move so they were gone before I had the chance to get a pic.

    • Unfortunately I tried to take a pic of the E-Type. Everything was perfect until my finger decided to slip off of the camera button.
