Decisions, decisions

Which one?

They were in my garage in Atlanta today...parked right next to me. They belong to football players on the Falcons who live in the same apartment block as me.

Not really sure what the attraction to flat black is?

Aston Martin DB9
Lamborghini Gallardo
Maclaren MP4 (I think)

Looks to be a 2014 Rapide. Still in disbelief of a 4 door Aston. At least its better looking than a Panamera.

The flat black over everything is called "murderd out". Don't get it either.

Looks like DeAngelo Hall's driveway in Leesburg until he moved last year. Note the extra set of Raptor wheels. Surprised those haven't rolled off, even in that secured garage.

They need the extra parking space in case the hidden side armament are engaged.

and gates - and 24/7 security personnel, plus on site 10pm-6am Atlanta PD

I know where there is a will....but measures like this are a pretty good deterrent. Theft is 99% a crime of opportunity

Must be where he normally parks the Rangie...


As to the flat black, I really like it. I've considered it for the Classic.
