The Latest Fall Fashions

Recommended Posts

Past six weeks or so:

1. 1968 Dodge Charger, black with flat black scallop stripes.

Julie actually saw this one like four times in our neighborhood

and her descriptions included girl-lingo like:

it was like one of those old-school classic muscle cars, from

the sixties or whatever... BIG giant drag tires and it had those

baby-rollerbalde tires mounted on bars that stick out from

under the rear bumper like a REAL dragster, and it's mean and

has something cool to look at from every angle!

Turns out she was right, this Mopar dragster makes Vin Diesel's

F&F Charger look like a Camry LE.

By comparison, the average big-block powered, ready for the

strip "pro-street" car is damn stock '75 Mustang II.

2. Nissan Sentra 2-door hatchback... (1988-1992?) NEVER seen one before, ever

3. '79 Camaro hardtop, 100% stock & original that was cleaner than an average

Pierce Arrow on the lawn at Pebble Beach. I as driving the Benz and gave him a

hearty thumbs up. It seemed to make him proud that some kid in an '80s yuppie

rocket was giving his '79 Chevy a compliment.

4. late 1960s era Peterbilt (359) carrying a tank-long distance gun that

(to my not-so-trained-eye) made a M1a Abrams tank look like a pea-shooter!

[i got photos of this, thank god will post them soon....]

5. clone of our 500SEC, down to the paint, except with th ugly, bulky

US bumpers, but customized with all-white (clear euro) lenses and

a kickass set of 20" rims.

New Honda Fits at "my" dealership. It's a more substantial car than the old. I want to drive one to try it out.

At Target today:

Saw a Lincoln MKS for the first time in the wild....black w/ dark window tint, tan leather interior...they look really sharp in person...I like the sculpturing and distinct pointyness to the centre of the rear bumper.

I parked next to a dark blue '80s Caddy Eldorado Biarittz convertible...looked great, except for the tacky gold trim.

Saw a dark gray Bentley Continental GT.

Saw an interesting variety of cars yesterday...2 '08 CTSes--dark gray and pearl white, 2 '08 Malibus that did not appear to be rentals (good news!), a new Mazda 6 in black (didn't realize they were out yet--pretty sharp), a red late model Lotus Esprit, a faded red '70s Lancia Beta coupe (haven't seen anything like that in ages).

I've seen several A4s and A5s which look very sharp. Much more substantial looking than the 3er. The X6 is also very interesting; it looks better than the X5 I think.

Saw this parked at the curb, in white, made all the other cars around it look like dish rags.

There was a donked Taurus running around downtown York today. It had ventiports and 32s. :blink:

OMG Mr. Nut, I drove by that yellow Smrt twice yesterday! What were you doing in town?

Just looking around. There wasn't much going on at school here in York, so I decided to take a trip up to Harrisburg and figured I should hit Lancaster while I was out.

Saw a Kia Borrego in the wild. If I didn't pay attention to the industry, I wouldn't have paid it any attention. That's how nondescript this vehicle is.

Saw a black VW Tiguan today..first one I've seen...not bad. Saw a white '60 Ranchero and a yellow w/ black vinyl top '65 Mustang..both very clean.

In the parking garage I've parking in for work this week, I've seen some interesting cars...a derelict '71-72 El Camino w/ no hood, big block V8, the whole thing (incl. grille and bumpers) painted a nasty medium blue (looks like latex house paint or something), bed full of junk. A maroon '96 Caprice SS in very clean shape... a black Jag XF. A very clean gold '76-79 Seville--no vinyl top.
