I had just finished lunch and was leaving the restaurant when I came upon another feast for the eyes, the biggest wiener I've ever seen. I've never had the pleasure of seeing a Wienermobile in person. It was unattended at a hotel parking lot, with the wiener jockeys probably taking a respite at the hotel unless they were having a meal at the IHOP next door.

I've noticed a lot more older Volkswagens banging around here as of late.

...and most on their own power, too! :lol:

other than that, nothing of note...yet.

I went back to my favorite restaurant, and that big wiener was still across the street by the hotel. Unfortunately, when I left the restaurant, it was gone. Here's another picture I took the day before, showing the Firebird taillights:

Earlier in the day, I saw a new Scion FR-S:

Saw my first XTS today. Came around a rural road corner to an intersection, a black Platinum was waiting at the light.

Definitely catches your eye, looked really upscale.

White diamond XTS turning into traffic ahead of me, Saturday night in the rain. The size/rear styling are very distinctive.

Random Ferrari cruising into work.

What a commute, necktie and all, Mr. Ferrari.

Saw a Nissan NV in commercial livery (an HVAC maintenance/repair company) on the street for the first time (I saw ones on a Nissan lot months ago).

Black ice CTS-V with black wheels in traffic. I was in a TL SH-AWD at the time and we kept meeting up red light to red light. Fun.

1970 Chevrolet C60 convential with "427" badges on the hood.

:worthless:

OK, you axed for it...the gate was closed into the yard where the old beast is parked, so I had to take a pic through the chain link fence (and it's spelled "conventional"...I'm a dumbass):

Saw my buddy's circa '77 CitiCar today- he's got it licensed & insured after some work (needs more tho).

Reports it has about a 25 mile range and a top speed of about 48.

'Spartan' doesn't begin to describe it, but it sure grabs attention: overall length is 4" shorter than a smart car.

The entertainment value is about doubled to see him climb out of it; he's 6'8".

Another iQ yesterday, this time orange and outside Target. Before that, a white one at Ikea.
