Speaking of leaping, I caught this Jaguar X-Type Vanden Plas (it said so in the pin-strip) with rear mounted hood ornament just in case you forgot it was a Jaguar when the old bag behind the wheel passed you.

I wouldn;t be surprised if it was aftermarket. car mascots, much like flags, are always supposed to be charging.

Most likely...pretty sure the Vanden Plas and 'VDP' badging usage are bogus also, IIRC Jag had a Vanden Plas version of the XJ but not the X-type....and Vanden Plas was a coachbuilder and a car brand long ago..

Yesterday, a silver Verano @ "my" BG dealership. Today, a red Verano in its place. Sold, or just shuffled? I've got a hankerin' to stick a nose print on the glass tomorrow when they're closed.

Car hauler in the cold rain yesterday afternoon, next door at Chevy. Full of randomly equipped and very eye catching new 2012 Corvettes. Total mix. Convertibles, Grand Sports, and others, each a different color. Dropped one and pulled away.

Silver Datsun X-Trail with stuff on the roof rack and indeterminate license plates. How it got in northern Maryland is anyone's guess.


I can explain your Datsun sighting. Datsun has sold the X-Trail in Mexico continuously since 2003 and in Canada for 2005 and 2006. Your indeterminate plates probably originated from either country.

I spotted another silver X-Trail in Lexington about a month or so ago with Mexican tags. It threw everyone who looked at it for a loop. Maybe it was the same Ness-ann?

Saw a brand new Alpina B7... making a northbound turn from the southbound-only exit of the Staten Island Mall... which, if you are familar with the entrance, takes one across traffic that has a green light, and can get you creamed. Whoops. Having a expensive car does not make one a good driver, for sure...

Speaking of new cars... saw a brand new 2012 Charger get creamed front and rear in front of the GF's apartment.

Hilarious, OCN...and what a cluster of weird cars...

Those Murano Crosscabriolets...Nissan may need to find a place to donate them to as no one is buying...and I read of a few that were, the people traded them back in on normal Muranos after their first initial lapse in judgement. Bizarre vehicle.

I'll go ahead and admit that I'd rock a CrossCabriolet if I had an extra $30 large to waste. It's the closest thing we have on our shores to experiencing Renault's trademark wierdness over the last decade.

Almost $50,000 grand? Eh, I'm not suprised. The really wierd Renaults were always needlessly expensive.
