Default See many PB's around town?

We live in E. Tennessee, have an 08 PB. Have seen an 07 and an 06 PB at different times. We talked to the 06's owner today - she loves, loves, loves her car! Says people come up and offer to buy it!

I always get tons of compliments on my car. Had it deep cleaned/clay bar/wax, etc. this week - the detailer posted pics on his facebook page -

I live in Rochester NY and have never seen PB. I'm lucky if I see 2 or 3 SC's during the summer. We winter in Naples FL where SC's are a dime a dozen but I not seen a PB done there as of yet. I have a 07 Tigereye Mica, love the car after one year of ownership.

I see one or two a week around here (Orlando area), but have never seen a PB, other than one that came up for sale at our local Carmax (I didn't buy it - it was a 2004, I was looking for a 2006+) .

There are two local SCs I see fairly often (a black & a white one), but since this is a big tourist area, I see a few more sporting out-of-state plates, or from other areas of Florida once in a while (our standard plates have the County at the bottom).

Overall though, it's still a relatively rare car, and I get a lot of stares and thumbs-up from folks when I'm driving it - especially when I have the top down. Funniest story was when I stopped for gas down near the tourist trap area and a busload of Japanese tourists jumped out and started excitingly pointing and taking pictures of it like it was some kind of exotic car.....Laughed my *** off

Hey NAmVet, I have seen 3 PB's in Orlando. There is a 2005, a 2007 and mine a 2006. The 05 is around Park Ave all the time. The 07 is always on Sand Lake Road and my 06 is always around both places...

I've only seen one in the Tampa Bay Area. I saw a Pebble Beach RX last week and almost made the woman pull over I was gawking so hard. I've been trying to find a Pebble Beach RX for a while now.

Hey Albino... That's not my neck of the woods... I live in the Longwood/Altamonte Springs area and rarely get down where you are. We spend most of our time going to the eastern beaches (Daytona/Ormond/New Smyrna/Cocoa/Sebastian Inlet/ etc), or just pass through on I4 on our way to the Gulf Coast.

Though I'm quite familiar with that area, I try to stay away from the Downtown & attractions area as much as possible....too many tourists (Park Ave area is nice also, but you can never find a decent parking spot...I have a deathly fear of door-dings)

I have no choice. I distribute wine to most of the upscale restaurants in those areas. I am usually there during the day before they open for business and the parking lots are usually empty...

Interesting... are you saying that you use your Pebble Beach as a delivery vehicle?? That must be some high-end wine

I assume you are on the sales/management end, but either way, it sounds like you can write-off your SC as a business expense! Sweet !

I am in sales and management. On occasion I have had to deliver wine using the PB. Many of my customers have said "It was the coolest delivery vehicle they have ever seen"....LOL The wine sells on premise between $60 to $250 per bottle. Yes, I am able to expense the PB 100%.....

Wow - shocked it's so rare to see them! Especially since I've seen 3 in Podunk, E. Tennessee!

My wife said she spotted a White/Red interior PB at Altamonte Mall in the parking lot on Saturday while she was out shopping (must be a 2007), so there's another one in the area. That's exactly the one I was looking for when I was SC shopping a few months ago (I love the red interiors!)....settled for my Sapphire Pearl/Camel 2008.

I've never seen any Pebble Beach Editions around my area, but I just bought one! picked up a 2007 with the pimento red leather... so much nicer in person than in photos. Happier with this color combo than even the saddle, which would have been my second choice. It's got about 86k miles on it, but it is pristine besides a few minor dings/scrapes that only I would notice. The $10k savings I had, over a model with 45k miles less is totally worth it. The timing belt/waterpump job will be next, but that's no big thing - around $1100 parts/labor at most Lexus dealerships.

Here's a quick video of my 07 PB while taking the top down:
