A few weeks back I was flown out to LA for a job interview; I arrived at ~11am Thursday, and was flying out at like 11:30pm Friday... with Thursday to myself.

The company rented me a car but it was terrible, so I booked a car through Turo.com to have some fun. I got a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C for 24 hours for $250... and my god was it worth it.

I picked it up in Santa Monica, drove up Hwy 1, grabbed lunch in Malbu, spent the next 4 hours ripping up canyon roads, then headed downtown for dinner / my hotel reservation. Next morning took the car to the interview .... 3 of the 5 interviewing me were from England so they went ape **** for it.

Anyways, it was amazing. People say money doesn't buy happiness, but after this, I'm not sure.... I could be in the worst mood ever and 45 mins with this car I would be all smiles.

I highly recommend looking at Turo to rent some cool cars if you're ever on vacation... keep in mine the price listed + 10% + extra insurance if you choose to take it. Since I was 29 Turo wouldn't allow me to rent the McClaren, but the owner and I worked it out on the side.


A few photos :






The kid in this photo was at a gas station with his family when I stopped for gas... he very politely came and asked if he could get a photo and peak in it.... I said if it was cool with his parents we could just go for a ride. The kid was almost in tears because he was so happy.
