This morning on the way to work--the first '09 ZR-1 I've seen in the wild. In blue. Looks incredible on the road. I saw the gray showcar at Barrett-Jackson in '08.

Also, a very clean early 4th gen Camaro convertible, top down at 6am, a sharp custom indigo blue paint job w/ tasteful large chrome wheels...

First '10 SRXes on the road...saw a dark blue one at the Caddy dealer a few weeks ago...saw two black ones on the freeway this afternoon..interesting looking from behind.

At Target this afternoon I saw a restored '31 Ford Model A convertible, a body style I hadn't seen before---with a backseat...looked like a Tudor from the beltline down. Dark blue, ivory colored wire wheels, ivory top, separate trunk behind the body.

Toyota MR2 Spyder right in front of me.

Lotus Elise in oncoming traffic.

Light Pink Cadillac CTS-V. I triple checked my eyes while looking at that one. Mary Kay was not written on the vehicle.

Wierd... I have yet to see a 2nd gen CTS-v...I did see a black 1st gen CTS-v a few days ago. Saw a gorgeous 2nd gen CTS at the airport this afternoon, black w/ blackout windows, and custom mesh grilles..

Since this is Halloween month, how about a horror sighting? A new Lexus GX470 with fake portholes on the fenders. Now that was bad enough in and of itself, but the idiot only put 3 on each side even though it's a V8.

Here they're like the biggest fad ever, on anything. I first saw a set on a couple of Century's & LeSabre's driven by old guys, not too bad, and the right number. Then they started popping up on G6's, various random imports, and even an old Expedition or two...they always so perfectly compliment the "WTF?" look of the cars in the first place, especially the ones that are trashed but have those shiny new porthole stick-ons to make the look.

Otherwise...

Passed a brand new black on black '10 Camaro SS with the roof open & windows down today, looked "new car" detailed & had temporary plates, so yet another happy new owner somewhere locally. Then right behind it? A Carbon Black G6 GXP sedan...say what you may, but I like both in different ways and seeing such "old" GM right on the bumper of such great "new" GM but only a model year apart was great. Like Darth Vader, cool as crap, and knife cut edges, followed by his bucktoothed and extra gangly in sedan form--but still oddly eye catching--cousin.

Starting to see '10 Equinoxes on the road.

Spotted a 2001-2005 Monte Carlo with part of the M missing from the emblem. So... I guess I saw my very first Nonte Carlo.

I spotted a new Camaro this month, though I've been seeing them every so often since July, I think.

And it's Cuticle FTW on the ultimate travesty with these stupid stick-on portholes. Would David Buick be proud, or embarrassed?

Drove a Cyber Gray Equinox 1LT AWD yesterday. The 4 cylinder is fine in this vehicle. It felt very solid, with a good ride. An excellent job.

Picked up a 2010 Colorado brochure while I was waiting for $183 worth of maintenance to be done to the Cobalt (which included the annual Pennsylvania state inspection and emissions test, it's expensive to keep a car in PA! In MD, an inspection is only called for when a vehicle gets sold, and then it's the buyer's responsibility.)

A Suburban or a 15 passenger van. He'd need to haul around his disciples.
