November 2019 Car Spotters!

Recommended Posts

@ocnblu

Talk to me buddy!

What part of that post is it that perplexes you.LOL

A rich dude that buys a hot dog and a coffee part?

A rich dude that actually tips?

Maybe you feel that a 2 dollar tip is cheap. That phoquing rich bastard should've tipped more?  

The Urus is ugly part and how I wouldnt want to be seen in it? 

The part where I gave him a thumbs up even though I hate his car?  (At least the ugly thing has some fun attributes to it...the guy could have bought a stuffy Rolls or Bentley SUV...) 

The part that the dude actually still uses such an out-dated form of a greeting in that surfer gesture?  Hey!!!  I greet people that way too!!!

The Urus/Uranus/Your Anus cliched joke?

Came out the movie theatre after seeing 'Ford v Ferrari' (loved it) and there was a red '05-06 Ford GT way out at the edge of the parking lot.  And my phone was dead. 

A good review of the movie of what is accurate and not. Over all seems the movie was very solid.

I saw it last weekend and really enjoyed it.   The Adam Carolla documentaries 'The 24 Hr War' and 'Shelby American' cover some of the same events and are both excellent and streaming on Prime now. 

I want to see 'The Good Thief' and 'The Irishman' this weekend...good thing The Irishman is streaming on Netflix, too long to see in a theater.

Spotted on November 24 while out of town:

The front end fascia and Glacier Blue Metallic indicate it's a 2005 to 2007, so a little older than mine.  This could be a 12 to 14 year old Buick LaCrosse.  Love to see people taking good care of their cars.  Also love seeing the heirloom cars that are out there.

Hilarious.  Are they still selling these in the States?  Evidently so.

Has any C&Ger ever driven one?  I've rented 2 or 3 overseas because they're the cheapest automatic in fleets and, while most of what I think about them is not that good, they are surprisingly stable and the ride is somewhat composed.

Where was this?  Maybe with the money he or she saves driving this, they were across the street at Great Clips using a coupon.

Here's an econobox spotted on November 9 when off to get coffee and found a parking spot in a residential area

Note:

1 - one of the very few Chevrolet passenger cars that will remain in upcoming year(s).

2 - having seen one at a dealer, this color is called Passion Fruit.  Hey, they also have Toasted Marshmallow.

3 - when equipped with wheel covers, these are going to have manual windows.

Redmond Town Center by the Taco Time. Seems they are more popular than I realized as I played tour guide for my sister and her out of town friends this weekend and I saw many Half Car E's. Maybe  just a relation to Microsoft / Google / Amazon sites in Redmond for work.

Also seen last month was this 1965 Ford Mustang, probably the genesis for the term "pony car."  I saw the owner, an early enough senior, asked him questions, and he would answer them with completely unrelated information.

There was another person with him who had the answers.

My questions:  Which engine?  Which trans, as in how many speeds?  Is it air conditioned? 

The answers, provided by the younger person with him, were:  1) a 289 c.i. V8, 2) a 3 speed automatic, and 3) yes, it was air conditioned.

It had less than 50,000 miles but, when the engine came to life, there was a fair bit of rumbling.

Also seen on different days of the long Thanksgiving weekend.

Things CAN be black and white.

Dodge Charger, latest rendition, in black, seen in the neighborhood:

Dodge Charger, latest rendition, in white, and exactly how I'd order it if in the market today - white, black cloth interior, no spoiler, alloy wheels, the base Pentastar V6 engine, and one helluva car for under $30 K.
