1. Ferrari 348 Spider
With a production run from 1989 to 1995 of only 8,800 cars, this 3.4 liter Ferrari came in numerous versions including a GT and this one, a Spider. While driving around Fresh Pond near Route 2 this afternoon, I managed to snap this spectacularly out-of-focus photo ... when we were all completely stopped at a light. I swear ... it was a 348.

2. Mercedes 280 SL hardtop
This Mercedes 280 SL was sitting in a parking lot in Concord, and its distinctive styling caught my eye. Uncannily, later in the day, I saw an identical model, same color and everything, being driven towards the Fresh Pond Mall in Cambridge, yet with one distinct difference -- it was a convertible. It had its top down and was occupied, it seemed, by a dad and his daughter. Perfect for a day like today! A quick shout out my window ascertained that the Fresh Pond Mercedes was vintage 1970, which leads me to believe that this photographed example is from that year too.
