      A Cadillac/Lexus dealer and a Ford Focus occupies indoor space? Go figure.



      I don't have anything to contribute since I'm in education. Teachers don't have cool cars. I haven't checked out the student lots.

      Nothing at my work as cool as the OP. There is a guy with a paxton supercharged Mustang GT with nitrous Supposed to be over 500 to the wheels per the tuner. That and a lightly modded GTO is all that would be interesting to TCL

      The Focus is at the Thrifty used car dealership. The building used to be the Hummer dealership before they went bye-bye. Thrifty took its place last year.

      Forgot to get a pic of one of the salesmen's 360hp RX-8 with nitrous.

      Nobody drives anything unique at my office. It's all cookie cutter Lexuses, BMWs, etc.

      I have the 'odd/unique' car when I show up in the 944 occasionally.

      Well, I work in San Francisco, so I park on the street. There are all kinds of random cool cars on the streets; my favorites are the 60's daily drivers.

      But there's one car that I ALWAYS see parked on the same street as my office...I would actually like to get in touch with the owner to do a photo shoot. It's a clean bagged A8 on what I think are Rotiform wheels. I googled that, and I got this car...which might be the same car? Who knows, it's a slammed blue A8 on five spoke wheels. If it's not the same car, it looks (almost?) identical to this.

      CEO drives an S600. Lots of Japanese and German mid- and entry-level luxury cars. Some Corvettes, a couple S2000s, a 997TT that shows up on occasion, and that's really it.

      I work at a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealer (we also have a Toyota dealer), there isn't much that's interesting in the parking lot. There's a beat up Celica All-Trac and one of the techs drives a nice B6 S4. Otherwise it's a sea of JK Wranglers and Ram pickups, a couple of Scion xAs, a couple of tCs, and a sea of Corollas and Camrys of assorted vintages.

      Oh, there's a guy that works in our body shop that is a fairly well known drag racer. He sometimes drives a late 80s Lebaron Turbo convertible that he recently bought. It's a ****ty car, but it's in incredible condition.

      I'm actually surprised at the lack of nice vehicles where I'm currently at. The place is filled with air traffic controllers drawing retirement and a pretty decent salary from Raytheon to train new people yet I haven't seen anything actually nice yet. I think it has something to do with being in OKC though. The nicest car I've seen in the 2 months I've been here is a Panamera. This place sucks.

      A new hire at my office has a Miata very similar to this:



      He always leaves it parked top down like a boss.

      Everyone drives a boring economy car like me or a lease. My site director traded her flagship sedan lease in for a Lexus GS

      Near my job there's a guy with a R33 GTR in pretty nice condition... I'll try to get a picture of it tomorrow.

      Nice thread.

      Oh, I forgot, there is one car-crazy VP with a cool fleet.

      He has:

      last-gen MB S600
      Late-90s S4
      Last-gen Jag XK-R convertible
      Ferrari 355 Spyder

      Allegedly has more cars, including another Ferrari, but that's all I've seen him in.

      Coolest car at my workplace is an air-cooled bug, not at all modified / fully restored.

      There is an older woman who daily drives a purple 964 Carrera 4, with snow tires in the winter. She is my automotive role model.

      a couple more...

      this is from the same day as the other Bugatti's...



      and one that I took today. Wrong camera settings because I was taking pics for work and I just looked up to see this thing leading the Google Street View Impreza around...

      +1 internets if you can identify where this photo was taken!

      I work in insurance, and regrettably the most exciting cars are in this picture. Guess which one is mine.
