Bonjour à tous!
or should I say Hello to you all!

First of all, thank you very much for giving my blog a go as I am sure there are thousands of others  like mine out there, but I will try to make mine as special as I can!

As my first two lines might suggest, I am a French man who works and lives in the UK. I have lived near Manchester for the last 6 years and grew up in France in the countryside. Now, you will say, what does that have to do with the title of the blog? (Yes, "Dream Cars Spotter" implies posts about cars not my personal life!) The link is that where I grew up, "Dream Cars" were nowhere else to be seen but on TV, in magazines or online, certainly not on the street... Seeing a 911 or even a Boxter would make your heart pounding as you wouldn't see more than 2 or 3 a year. So the sight of a Ferrari, an Aston Martin or a Lamborghini would probably make your eyes explode and your heart stop!!! That completely changed when I arrived in the UK in 2007. As a huge car enthusiast, arriving in Manchester was like having reached heaven (well, car heaven!). The number of Bentleys, Astons, Ferraris, Lambos, Rolls etc. I was seeing on the motorway or just parked along the streets on a daily basis was just unbelievable, particularly for someone who had never come across most of these cars before. They had always been out of reach fantasies and now they were all there, in front of my very eyes, dream becoming reality (ok, only part of the dream, as I now need to fulfil this dream with a purchase...).
Now I think it is time for me to share my dream and my passion for cars, that is why I have decided to create this blog. The idea behind it, is to try to capture Dream Cars on camera (well, iphone camera most of the time...) and just upload the pictures to share them with you and to show people who have never seen such cars around, what they look like on the street rather than in the pages of magazines!

Profitez-en! / Enjoy!
