43 posts in this topic

Some hibernate, some sit on ice floes. It is February, a chilly one this year (in these parts, at least). If you can "bear" it, let's get out there and spot some vehicular modes of transportation... right here!

It's the 2014 Hyundai Genesis sedan. The roofline looks a lot like the Azera, but from the distance from the front wheel well to the front door you can tell it's RWD.

Edit: wow, that was almost two years ago now.

I'm seeing a LOT of Chevy Captivas lately. none of them look like
fleet cars. One was being driven around the area of the local college
campus by a female student (assumedly) in a Hollister shirt with every bangle in the world hanging off the RVM.



have they started selling them here through regular retail, and I'm just the last to realize it?

Impala deal not struck- buy in too high for building/flipping ($5000), but will keep tabs on it.

I mentioned this last month, but here's the pic. I present to you... the Dodgrolet Ramarado :

Model S deliveries seem to be ramping up! I've been seeing at least two new ones everyday. The one I spotted today was Gray, and even with the standard 19" wheels, it looks great.

Also saw an Alfa Giulietta with a camo'ed Chrysler/Lancia front end and manufacturer plates.

Saw a dark gray '14 Silverado Crew Cab in traffic tonight....1st one I've seen on the road...

Manufacturer road testing?

Probably..they do a lot of that here. 2nd one I've seen, saw one in person at Barrett-Jackson last month.

Took a trip to look at a 1953 Cadillac Series 62 hardtop coupe. Was a nice solid, all-there, runner, but still needed more work than the price would allow in order to flip ($3500). Emotionally, I was in complete love, tho. Black '53 Caddy coupe. No pics tho.

Saw a really clean red w/ body color bumpers '77 Z-28 w/ tasteful larger wheels in my underground storage unit parking garage....a few min later, in the PetSmart parking lot saw a young woman in a new dark blue BMW 328 w/ temporary plate pull into a parking spot...poorly, right into the left rear quarter of a darker blue BMW M3 coupe...saw her front bumper crack and side marker light pop out. Funny thing is, 2 weeks ago, I saw a Ford Edge run into a Camry...in the same parking spot.

Did you get a good look at those drivers? Maybe it was dogs driving to PetSmart after seeing those Subaru commercials? Stranger things have happun...

1968 Chevelle coupe, drag car, back-halved, wheelie bars, fender exhaust, 4-stage nitrous, certified for 8-sec class. Lime green, clean enough, but not a show car by any means. BBC/PG.

They're probably hitting the used lots now.

Saw a Ford Flex parked behind a Scion Xb. It occurred to me that these two cars look a lot alike; the Flex is merely a scaled up version of the Xb (or xB, or whatev). Had to chuckle to myself.

Out for a Valentine's Day cruise was a couple in a sharp red '60 Thunderbird convertible, rolling top down w/ wide whites and wires...

Sorry for the crummy picture...saw this nice 67 Biscayne 2-Dr rolling up the street as I was walking to the bus stop. I ran after it and managed to snap this pic before the car turned right. It was a six/stick and the dude had no clue how to drive it...revved the engine up really tight, then S L O W L Y let out the clutch...painful to witness.

The last two days have been all Fomoco.

Yesterday I saw an early sixties Fairlane (kinda ratty and sitting low on old rear springs, but motoring right along). It had a temp, registration in the window.

A few moments later I spied a Kennedy-era 4-door Lincoln sedan at a local garage.

Today it was a Super Duty dually with what had to be a 9' or longer bed - never saw one like that.
