Those clumsy new Subies make your Subie look so much more graceful and sporty.

I think the new Subies are slowly working their way into being Azteks.

Saw a clean dark red Alfa 164 today, a pale blue w/ white interior '67 Caddy ragtop (with the top down, which was insane considering it was 113)...

So, I saw this car and was surprised that I saw this. So much so that I remembered this forum.

Citroen C6 in Michigan with New jersey plates... Beautiful car.

White pearl 2013 BRZ, parked in its spot outside the Chrysler dealer (has to be an employee there), in front of it's BMW 6-series friend. Always together.

Then another new 2013 Escape. White, mid level equipped, still in plastic. Looked headed south on dealer trade. They don't look bad, but in anything less than the top level trim, they look odd with plainer trim and smaller wheels. Like a melted Focus on stilts. Adjustment period after 11 years of the small box look.

In action spot.

Standing at the gas pump near our current southwest Philly spot, also across from an intersection, I heard tires squealing and a distinct V6 burble. Turned to see a white 2012 Impala with NY tags and a, hmm, "dude", behind the wheel, front windows down, foot to the floor taking off and turning left. W-body + LFX V6 at full tilt + steering turned left = very confused and scrambling front wheels, and one odd sound. Odd. Roar.

One more! Forgot...

At the Enterprise central hub/lot around the corner from work, a car hauler with 6 new Chevy Sparks. 1 yellow, 2 green, and more importantly, 3 in that very pale pastel pink. All with alloy wheels. Looked good. Drove around & past several times, not sure if any got dropped off there or not.

Saw a black '13 Caddy XTS in the parking lot at Trader Joes a few min ago...saw it from behind and down the side...looked tall and narrow, and the deck is really short. Strange. At the local Honda store, I saw a blue-green '61 Ford F100 longbed on their corner display dais..

For the 70's lover in us all, this is how a Monte Carlo should look!

Yet for what I think is the best looking Monte Carlo ever, this is the car I hope to own some day in my own car collection!

This is the full ad, sadly already sold, but will continue to look and dream till I can buy one some day.

Did see a 1985 Black Monte Carlo SS this morning on the way into work. Needed some TLC, but over all was a solid project car, just hope the guy brings it back to it's glory. :)

In Bumfiss, judging from the number of lugs, I'm guessing that's an F2 next to the Mini that needs rhinoplasty?

Good eye as usual, ocn. Didn't show, but it was called out in the hood badge.

The '53-56 generation started the F-100, F-250 designations.

I had a charming '57 F-250 Styleside years back. Had 2 taillights standard, but only 1 was wired/socketed. Still miss that truck.

I couldn't catch a tire size on that mini, but I scrapped an old lawn tractor this spring with larger rubber.

Thanks for the clarification on Ford truck model designations. So that's an F-250 then, cool.
