Another black Range Rover Evoque in my complex. Still another 4 door, no 2 door models yet. Range Rover world.

What a wacked 30 minutes in Philly, of 2013 spottings. Something odd was going on at Target, or I just picked the high zoot corner.

1) 2013 Cadillac XTS at Target. NY dealer tags. Caramel/Jet Black leather. What a beast.

2) Coming back out of Target, a Fisker Karma now on the other side of my car.

3) Nearing home, a black 2013 Ford Escape. This was one. Then I was behind another on the highway after. Every time I see one, "Humpty Dumpty" comes to mind.

Nice ill-fitting decklid on the Fisker, caddy. Not that it's an expensive car or anything.

New-style Escape in black, first one I've seen that was not waiting fer a buyer.

2 - 2013 GMC Sierras at local dealer, one an ext 1500 4WD, the other a 2500 HD ext 4WD. Good looking color, for sure. Chevy calls it Blue Topaz, the color of the Cruze I had. GMC calls it "Heritage Blue".

Yesterday (last day of June), saw a Mitsubishi i-MiEV, first on the street for me. Nice looking golf cart. The local dealer was advertising them for about $29K minus about $16K in tax incentives. Saw this at the local Costco today:

This may be blasphemous to some, but I think a sweet, massive car like the Cadillac above can carry giant rims without looking ridiculous, as long as it isn't lifted. Not sure if any mods were necessary to fit the car above, but it looks good to me. I am against cutting anything to make a rim fit, however.

A Renault 4 painted in pink and with the Barbie logo on the side... Perfect chick car! :lol:

So... you bought a $100k electric vehicle with solar panels on the roof to help recharge the battery.... and you park it under a tree when there are plenty of sunny spots available.

I never noticed that until the photos and comment. Hmm.

I'm wondering what Mr. Fisker was buying in Target. Then again, who cares. Car looks like a freakish concept in reality then you see license plates and are confused.

Another new Escape today. Robin egg blue/green fully loaded model. Looks much better with largest wheels, but still humpty dumpty from some angles. I think an employee at the Ford dealer near work is now demo driving it.

White pearl Subaru BRZ with temp tags, near our Acura store. 2 days in a row. Love this car, even in white.

...and this might beat out the Verano in my car search for the next car...

Love it also!

Silver BRZ that was parked out in back of the local dealership two weeks ago when I rode through, with a yellow "SOLD" tag on the wiper is still sitting in the same spot, tag faded from the sun. They also got in a dark gray one.

New 2013 Elantra GT with Style package. Gotta say, it's a very spiffy looking machine in all black, with a Euro look to it. The fish grille is at its least offensive in this model, imo. I might try one if I were in a position. I still wish for a new version of the wagon though.

White Chevrolet Volt; 1st I've seen with a Portuguese license plate (seen a couple Amperas rolling around Lisbon over the last 2 or 3 months).

Awesome dark silver Audi A5 3.2 tonight in Philly.

Followed by a gold Nissan Altima with a faded tan cloth top (really?), and then a navy blue Subaru SVX coupe. Been so long since I've seen an SVX.

Few more. Brand new Lexus LX470. Very few of these out & about, for obvious price/size/etc. reasons. Look big, old, and heavy tank-like, but also refined. If you wanted something like a Hummer but purring luxury, guess these are the fit. Heavy. And always driven by ladies wearing big hats, in my experience.

While cruising across the PA Turnpike Thursday, finally a Milano Red new 2012 TSX Special Edition. We've only ever ordered Silver, White and Black. The new bright red looks great with the darker wheels.

It looks like a Lincoln Navigator that's had a personality-dectomy

First thing I thought, too. Only it looks high and narrow in comparison.

^^And they are ALWAYS driven by middle aged or older women, wearing big hats...at least in Philadelphia. Same for new Land Cruisers I think I've seen 3 of in the past year. Rare big birds. They look antique then you see the keyless access buttons on the door handles, etc.

Checked out some new Subie's this afternoon, fresh off the truck 2013's. Nice changes to the nose and wheels on both the Legacy and Outback.
