And yeah the fact that ORCL ain't doing too badly probably helped.
Haha, excellent!!!

Who knows how many cars that billionaire has. And an interesting assortment no doubt, compared to more frugal rich people like Warren Buffett.

Hey guys sorry been away from the forum for personal reasons, but had to pop in just to post these pics of Larrys' LFA #085 (from what I can barely tell by peeking through the windshield) in white/tan. And sorry about the poor cell phone pic quality. Will definitely carry my better camera around from now on to take better shots if he drives it to work again.

BTW he also drove a 599 GTO and a GT-R Spec-V to work in the past two years, although I didn't take pics of them.

very nice man, thanks for the pics! hopefully you can confirm on the #085, we have a register in the lfa forum regarding all the lfa found. i created a thread in the lfa forum about this car, and also update the registry. awesome!!!!!!

btw, seems like lfa isn't that low, it actually clear the parking bump!

Wow he drove it to work again today! He must really like this car because over all these years I have never ever seen him drive to work for two consecutive days, let alone in the same car lol.

Here are some better pics I just took. The exterior paint doesn't look pearl-ish to me so it must be Whitest White.











However, without manual focus my stupid camera couldn't get past the highly reflective windshield to take a clear shot at the badge. I tried sharpening/darkening/contrasting the windshield pic and here's the barely legible result, which I am now sure says #085.

It's a very low bump though. Interestingly it is also the ONLY parking bump in all the parking lots at Oracle HQ. Must've been custom-ordered by him to protect his car lol.

Yup it is. He usually leaves work at 6:00pm to 6:30pm so try your luck around that time. (This is not confidential information is it?)
