This morning I saw a beige '74 or '75 Catalina 4dr w/ dog dish hubcaps..odd sight to see in the commute. Saw a sharp brown Enclave in the parking lot at work w/ a temp tag, someone had a Merry Xmas.

Went out for some take-out Thai tonite and on the way home, saw a goregous '69/70 silver w/black top Olds 98 4dr ht cruising along...pretty cool to see a car as old as I am on out and about.

Saw two Malibus recently...one at home and one on the road.

I'm starting to see more Focuses, too.

Also, early 90s Honda Accord wagon on the northbound side of I-35 last week...burnt to a crisp.

I've been seeing a lot of Caravans/T&C's and a few Focuses too.

Also, I got the chance to see the interior of a few vehicles today.. One being the Malibu. Great feel to it, and I was very impressed. I had a feeling it was still going to feel cheap and whatnot, but I was very enthused with it.

The second was the Challenger interior. Well, not the full interior, but enough to judge it. I'm not impressed, and it's IP material feels cheaper than the Malibu's, though it does have a thick padding to it. Oh, and don't expect it to look exactly like this:

Today I saw a nice black Buick Enclave, with the chrome on that SUV and the glossy black paint I looked wonderful.

Local dealer has two Astra 5-doors. One silver base (the wheel covers scream WALMART), and a blue XR. The silver car was totally coma-inducing, in and out. The blue one, only slightly less boring. The interior is perfect for a funeral, very plain and very black. I mean, I have black interior in the Sierra, but it seems nowhere near as sad as the Astra's.

1974 Malibu Classic sedan in pea soup green

1978 Chevy C30 tow truck with no doors, windows, or front clip, still being used daily to drag wrecks around

1991 Suburban sitting on blocks with fresh (December 08 expiration) inspection and tags, front clip laying on the ground in front of it

Lots of 08 Malibus. Two XLRs, lots of Caravans around here (they look kinda nice, but I dunno, little too boxy for my taste), lots and lots and lots of Acadias, couple of Enclaves (I really really really like those). Unfortunately no classics spotted yet, but I'm keeping the eyes peeled for them.

Pre-1998 facelift Police Interceptor, still on patrol duty. That thing has to have half a million miles on it by now.
