I think we have an extra day in February this year to post some cool and unusual vehicle spottings, but don't wait 'til the 29th, why not start now? Put down that Whitman's Sampler, and post away right here!

Surprisingly, never noticed this on the Yukon XL headlights:

(sorry for the crappy cell camera shot; I'm referencing the GMC logo on top of the turn signal unit)

The Yukon XL was still parked near my Envoy, so I got a closer and clearer picture:

I know the Terrain has the GMC logo in the tail lights, and many of the past couple of years worth of concepts had it in either of these places (Sierra HD All Terrain has it in the headlights, the Denali XT had it in the tail lights). I wonder if the Acadia or the Sierra have logos on them? I will investigate this over the weekend when I go to the Philly Auto Show :)

on two separate occasions, three different CTS coupes at the same intersection. (none the same one twice, I am assuming.) Sales of those things must be really starting to pick up as of late. Haven't seen any V coupes yet though.

Cruising into Philly my 2nd time today, behind a gold STS, this black STS-V came up beside darting around everyone. First V I've seen in a long, long time and looked great with chromed factory wheels and blacked windows.

I don't know how many Pintos are running around here but I saw another red 74 hatch back with historical tags being the white with green text. the last one just had current OH tags and was rougher this was a clean one for sure.

Whilst rolling home tonight, saw some drivers were out enjoying the cool winter weather in their oldies...saw a lowered aqua and white '59 Buick 2dr (on large wire wheels), a dark red w/ black vinyl top '67 GTO, and a gold '71 Caprice..all hardtops w/ all the windows down.

(2) new 2013 Malibu Eco's rolling off the delivery truck next door at Chevy, mixed in with other base model 2012 Malibu's. Red and a white one.

Now, how long until the current/old ones are renamed Classic like last time...

Saw an old DeSoto today on Highway 99 near edmonds. Sure do not see to many like that anymore. Needed some TLC, but over all still in pretty good shape for as old as it is.

On the NJ Turnpike yesterday a little past the Newark airport, coming home from a 2-day offsite training in NYC, I spotted a car carrier with two new 2012 Fisker Karmas - one white, the other a silver-gray color - int he Trucks/Buses lane. I still love the look of these very expensive cars.

Black Lacrosse Super...haven't seen one in SO long...or this might actually only be the second one I've ever seen driving. On the road in Philly Superbowl Sunday.

Then this past Thursday, driving back from Atlantic City a big black Hyundai Equus rolling along the Expressway. Big. Also the first I've seen in motion.

Saw an Original 70's era Datsun Pickup Truck. Looked like it had just been repainted and was in awesome shape.
