I'll start it off.

New Pontiac Vibe GT in all red... looked good. Hopefully the design won't age badly.

And is it just me, or has there been a greater appearance of TDI vehicles on the road? In the past few days I've seen three generations of Jetta TDIs.

Beeeaaaast. :P

A pretty nice Miata for sale, but considering the year and mileage, it's far out of my range.

two Lotuses... a black Exige on 315 N on Monday and a yellow Elise on Lane Avenue last night

also... on 315 N yesterday afternoon... a Honda Prelude "Type R" haha for real it had Type R badging on it complete with windsheild sticker... clearly +10 hp each badge (there were 4 haha)... silver car with flat colored fire-engine red flames (+25 hp) it also had the optional bleacher style seating for that open air feel... or it may have been a spoiler... either way... +50 hp... the lower front fascia... or whats left of it... had clearly been met by a speed bump and quickly realized maybe 4 inches of ground clearance isnt enough... the whole drivers side front corner part of said "ground effects" was held together by duct tape (+20 hp) so if youve been keeping up... there was a prelude with 135 hp more than stock... im telling you man Corvettes are shaking in their transverse leaf springs... haha :P

I went back to the Pontiac store the other day and gave their 888 G8 GT the quick once over. I only sat in it for a minute, popped the hood and doors, and walked around it a few times.

It was nice to actually lay hands on one, and I want that ST even more now.

This morning I saw a red Solstice in a lineup of traffic surrounded by a sea of bland, silver and beige mid size sedans. Man did it ever stand out! I could never be part of that conformist parade - hats off to the Solstice owner!

In the WAWA parking lot there were some interesting high-end cars:

-An S600 V12 sedan ( friggin huge, ugly fender flares, nice sound to the exhaust)

-A CLS500 ( I still love the lines of that car)

- A super nice M3 convertible in white.

- A new Denali XLT

Plus an assortment of lexus stuff and other less interesting cars, trucks and suvs.

Pontiac G8 GT, black exterior, black-and-red interior... :yes:

... at the dealer nearest me, with a $2,000 "limited edition" markup... :nono:

The G8 I test-drove in Newport News wasn't marked up. Daggone Baltimore dealers...

Jaguar XF's, everywhere. Helps that the dealer is a mile up the street, they have some parked in view, I've seen several on test drives and a lot of salespeople using them as demos...and also one being used as a Jag loaner. Really like them, and the "un-Jag" factor.

The one I looked at wasn't marked-up either. (black GT, one of the 888)

Really don't like them - nothing Jag about them. :nono:

- 2009 blood-red Tin Indian G-VIII Gran Turismo.

(that's the only new car that I've seen that I actually care about, - except for that raven black '08 CTS

Now for the eye candy... these are from the past few months since I've been slacking on posting them:

'29? Model A... pretty cool for a Ford.

dscn2933bg3.th.jpg

'41 Chevy... daily driven in the summer

dscn2828zv6.th.jpg

That '39 Nash I recently mentioned

dscn2872gv9.th.jpg

This Impala 2dr hardtop caught my eye the other day.

dscn2765oo4.th.jpg

This Buick made me sad.... it is one of about a dozen classics I discovered

in a farmer's field about a month ago.

dscn2895aa6.th.jpg

What is it with the Fords... people just LOVE mediocrity in their classics I guess.

This is a wicked cool mostly original truck but I'd much rather have a Chevy

or GMC anyday.

dscn2923er0.th.jpg

This is what I'm going to be driving if the scumbags in Washington let gas get out

of hand... I'll park my classic car & drive a 1960s "Porsche Rabbitt"

dscn2825yb7.th.jpg

Small world.... this is a '79 SEDAN deVille that lives 3 miles away from me, and old couple drive it a

few times a week. It's not quite as spiffy as my '77 CVD though, the sedan has a tan interior which

just kind of pales in contrast to a white one.

& here's a few recent photos of the Banana Boat with its new CHiMSL from

a 90s STS (I've got like 7 of these things in the barn) I have not driven

the poor B-59 as of late since I have not even started to work on the head

gasket/carb./fire damage repairs. I have taken a few photos of it in the

car port, just chillin' like a villain and awaiting some much needed TLC.

`08 Dakota (first I've seen)

`08 Magnum (also first)

both red

I just saw a new Dakota the other day too, in red. Really nice improvement, and still a fantastic looking truck. Not sure how much the schnoz and HO engine will help, as it's a truck, but very well could.

I still think dropping the regular cab was a big mistake. Dodge, bring back the regular cab Dak!

Back in the 97-98 timeframe, you could get a regular cab Dakota 4x2 with the 5.2 to make one hell of a sleeper pickup. I'm not sure, the 5.9 may have also been available in 4x2 regular cab configuration too. This dropping of regular cabs (Nissan is also guilty, Ford is too, kinda, I dont get those mini-doors on the F-150) is just sad.

Yep, I think it was--regular cab R/T's.

It's the "beefy" small/mid-size truck, and stands out because of that...in a forgotten, too much sort of a way.
