Yay for downtown Dartmouth! If we could only do something with those huge surface parking lots it would actually be extremely cool. Right now, Portland street is the only street that's truly enjoyable imo.

I agree that it has a lot of potential. It is more than just a modern suburb; it had 6,000 people by 1890, so there are a lot of buildings from that time or earlier, including some from the 1700's, and a few nice neighbourhoods of pre-war houses that cover much of the old city of Dartmouth. The ferry makes it attractive too.

There are already maybe 1/3 fewer surface lots than there were 10 years ago and the trend looks like it's going to continue. King's Wharf is going to have some larger commercial spaces with room for things like a full-service grocery store so that should make a difference.

Luxury & Super Car Weekend is an annual upscale car event taking place in VanDusen Botanical Garden every September. Here are some photos of rare exotics from last year's show. To not flood this thread, there are more photos in here.



80s dream car Lamborghini Countach.


Porsche Carrera GT is another legend.


Ford GT is one of the few American supercars.


Lexus LFA has one of the best sounds.


2014 Audi R8.


The new BMW M4 is a common sight, yet looks fantastic.


Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is a pretty rare sight.


When all your friends have an Aventador you got to tune it up.


Rolls-Royce equals luxury.


Bentleys have some very nice interiors.


BMW i8 electric supercar.


Brand new Lamborghini Huracan is sweet.




Bugatti Veyron Sans Noir is worth a measly $1.8M.




Pagani Huayra is a super rare hypercar to see. This was the first time I have ever seen one and it looks great!






The most beautiful hypercar on market is McLaren P1. It's like a sculpture.






Although rare, there were not one but two P1's to see.


And there you have it.

Great pics as always Klazu.

And the P1 is absolutely gorgeous, but your wrong... the Koenigsegg Agera is the most beautiful car on the planet.

Gorgeous pictures, Klazu.

A few street photography shots, since I suck at it but enjoy it so much!

Yeah, Agera is cool but think I still prefer P1. I have yet to see a Koenigsegg myself, so I will hold my final verdict until I see one.

Too bad I didn't make it to this year's show. They had LaFerrari and Porsche 918. One doesn't see cars like that often.

Agreed. Great shot of the Village Mall in St. John's. It actually looks better from the air, but is one of the bleakest intersections in the city thanks to the no tree policy. The new high school is directly opposite, and some have been asking for a pedway to cross the street.

No tree policy? What possible reason could they have for banning trees??

I don't think trees can grow on that rock anyway.

Trees need sunlight...

^ Me too! They're something that neither of us have (except for a few very isolated exceptions).

Yeah. Excluding modern infill where it's faux stone, we only have four.

AND, I recently learned - as a result of the fact they're all being restored right now... that it's basically the 1800s equivalent of faux stone.

The Four Sisters have a stone exterior, then an air space for insultation, and inside are four normal, wooden rowhouses. The wood between that air and the stone exterior is even painted.
