September 2019 auto spotter


Recommended Posts

Today on the way home to the bus stop.from work, I saw this police car followed by a manufacture plate full size truck that had tubes all over Nd then I saw on the back a camera hanging with red light clearly recording. I look where the camera was pointed at and a standard size Yukon with no plate, but also a nose I had never seen before. Got my phone out in the rain to snap this pic, this refresh??? Yukon was followed by a current year yukon 2019 with manufacture plates and then a seattle motorcycle with lights on. Clearly recording something in the Emerald City.

Got to check out and sit in this bad boy C8 last month at a Chevrolet dealer reveal day here in Scottsdale, AZ. GM is touring the country with 3 or 4 or them. Very cool presentation. Beautiful and solid build inside and out. GM really knocked it out of the park with this car, amazing engineering feat. U.S.A!!

New GM commercial possibly? That's definitely DT Seattle! I grew up in rural Oregon that's now wine country.

So I was standing on a suburban curb, looking to cross the street. Otherwise I would never have noticed it, but an assumedly brand new audi A7 went by. It wore a rather striking coat of a silvery green color.

I googled around, found nothing. I looked at audi's website, it's not a standard color. They have an option to check 'special colors', but the price was "$0" and none of them show up in the configurator. Either the site is screwed up, or there are in fact no special A7 colors. Would like to see that color again...

Probably a wrapped car. Ton of colors and it looks really good now can't even tell it's wrap.

Spotted this just a few blocks from my house. Rare to find them in good condition these days. They tended to eat timing belts.

Nice, too bad it has a FART can applied to it.

You can even tell you're tall from your pictures! It looks like the camera is at the height of the Tahoe!

So rare to see.

Are the V10's more rare than the diesels?

:roflmao: Yup welcome to my world View! :P

At least in the pacific northwest, you find plenty of better Excursion Diesels, but rarely a V10. So yes at least in the PNW they are very rare even in truck form they are rare for Ford. Ram on the other hand has V10 everywhere.

Owner/builder upgrade.

What part since I have no knowledge of what these cars were originally like.
