Most of the fly whips belong to Jordan Belfort, a Wall Street weasel played by my favorite actor, Leonardi DiCaprio. Be warned, Leo does not always treat his sports cars (or anything else for that matter) with the respect that they deserve. Over the course of the film, Jordan’s modes of transportation chronicle his progression up the socioeconomic ladder. In the opening scene, he’s taking the bus to his first day on Wall Street. A few scenes later, his hair is slicked back and he is whipping a twosome of classic Jags.

Coolest used cars signs

Some car dealers have fancy signage and amazing waiting rooms. Those are the types of stores updated once every few years with LED TVs, magazine racks filled with iPads and waiting rooms that smell like morning lilies.

For every dealer that’s all hoity-toity, there is a store that’s a little rough around the edges. They’re the used car lots off the mile roads. They haven’t changed with the times, the televisions are analog and the waiting rooms smell like cigarettes and stale coffee.
