I saw a Suburban today.

60s vintage.

Pepto Bismol pink.

Not something you see everyday.

Haven't been out of the house today.

Saturday and Sunday it was probably the mid-70's Buick Skylark my neighbors are restoring.

Friday it was the Lotus Elise my best friend from high school drives. We went to the movies and dinner. Not sure if it counts because I see it about once a month.

I really, really want it. I really, really can't afford it. Plus it's in Scottsdale.

I live in the Dominican Republic and the cars I see every day do not exist back in real life. I see Dayhatsu Terios which is my favorite car and hope to buy one next year.

One of the “cool” things about it was it had turn signal indicators on the back of the hood scoop.

Coolest was probably this baby that I’ve been driving the last couple of days. 1963 Ford Futura.
I had one of those about 1975 or so when it sold for $100.00

I saw a few weeks ago in South Florida a vanity plate that said LADV8 and thought a Latino announcing he was a deviate, but I talked to the guy and he was celebrating that he was a lad with a V8. It was a 1972 or so huge Pontiac.

A blue one of these was parked in my neighbor's drive this morning: The Auto Moto. Never seen one before. It gets 80 miles per gallon, and can reach speeds of 85mph. Oh, and it comes with a 4-speaker MP3 sound system.

Looks sort of like the BMW C1, which I'd prefer as I don't think rear wheels do that Moto any favors.

Someone with a yellow '68 Impala visited one of our neighbors today.

Yesterday there was what may have been a '68 Tempest or LeMans parked near me while I was waiting for a bus. Didn't get a good look at it but I'm fairly certain it was some sort of late '60s GM product.

I don't normally pay much attention to cars, but today something unusual passed me so I got behind it to see what it was. It was a Fairlady Z. I'd never heard of it and looked it up when I got home. From the pictures I saw, I think it was an older model. Cute little car.

Tomorrow morning I will be having a product briefing for M cars - so I'll be going through the worlds most powerful SUV, then the M5, M3, 135M...in the afternoon I'll be going to the Apina dealership...

Rather looking forward to it :-)

I just got back from a 12 day vacation in Iceland and saw a bunch of very unusual vehicles. Will post some photos shortly, but lets just say I wouldn't want to meet some of them in dark alley. The Icelanders like their trucks.

I saw a VW van last week in nice shape; surprised me when I realized I've only seen them online for years.

Today I saw a 1980s 4WD mini pickup all jacked up 35" tires, full cage the whole bit. It was in very nice shape.
I thought I was back in 1985 again.

I met a Chevy SSR on the road today. I had never seen one before & was surprised to find that it was a model produced from 2003-2006. I thought it looked cool, but I guess it wasn't enough of a pickup truck to go over big.

Have lunch out on Piedmont, or hang out in Buckhead for a day or two at most and you will spot one.

I suspect I'll never have one, but I am pursuing the possibility of actually meeting an owner next week or so. Perhaps a drive?

Granted, the Veyron was parked on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, where it's probably not so unusual of a sight, but still, I was like a little kid. OOH! VEYRON! So were many other passersby. One woman was touching the car while posing for a photo with it ... grrrr!

EDIT: It's this car.

Last Thursday, I think -- but I'm not quite sure -- I saw an Equus Bass 770 (Flash page with sound) in Malibu, on the Pacific Coast Highway. If it wasn't, it was a damn good one-off, with the front of a vintage 1960s Dodge Challenger, and rear of a 1960s Mustang fastback.

In the interests of fair disclosure, you should show him some of your dashcam videos before he lets you anywhere near the car.

Saw an unusual truck on the opposite side of 128 yesterday, didn't get a great look at it but it seemed to be a cab over pickup or small truck of some sort. A quick Google image search found this which seems about right

Interesting vehicle, I'm not sure I've seen one before.

To see some beautiful cars—old and new—check out Doug DeMuro's nice little video from this year's classic car week at Monterey. There's dozens of new supercars like McLarens and Aventadors and F599s and Bentleys and 458s, but the really good stuff is the classic exotics like the Maserati Ghibli and Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona and Lamborghini Espada and Mercedes 300SL (coupe and convertible) and Porsche 356, and even a BMW M1. There's also a few of my teenager dream exotics, like the Countach and Testarossa.

I've been a car lover since i was a kid. When i was a teenager, every spare dollar i had went on car magazines, and i could rattle of engine displacement, power and torque, and performance numbers for a whole range of exotics. I still love cars, and spend a bunch of time reading about them on sites like Jalopnik.

And i cannot stand the Bugatti Veyron.

Sure, it's an impressive piece of engineering, but it is fucking butt-ugly, and it screams "wanker magnet." It strikes me as a car designed specifically to attract asshole oil sheiks and fashion designers and hedge fund douchebags, none of whom care very much about cars, but who want to be able to own the Fastest and the Most Expensive.

Did i mention that it's fucking ugly?

And although they've only built about 400 of them, they feel the need to make the car artificially even more exclusive by dividing those 400 cars into about 26 (i'm not kidding) different "special editions," just so your Veyron is different from everyone else's Veyron.

I'm not sure if i've mentioned this yet, but it's also fugly as fucking fuck.

I get quite satisfied to see that Veyrons that originally sold for around $2 million can now be had for closer to $1 million. I know that the type of people who buy these cars have more money than God anyway, but that is some pretty wild depreciation.

Think about it: for the amount that this guy has lost in depreciation, you could buy a Ferrari 458, a Porsche 911 Turbo, an Aston Martin DB9 V12, and Z07 Corvette, with thousands left over for gas, tires, and some lap time at your local racetrack.

And all of those cars look miles better than a Veyron, which, in case i forgot to mention it earlier, is fucking ugly.

To the tune of "Blame Canada" say "Blame Ferdinand." Ferdinand Piech pushed thru the Veyron because he wanted/wants a "legacy car." His cousin "Butzi" Porsche designed the 911 and it's endured but the family was kicked out of the day-to-day business so the rest of the Porsche family was shut out.

It actually is a fitting legacy - it's a cynical, brute force push at making something special at all cost (they lost money on every one despite the price).

For reals.

ducati since you like causing accidents* I'd advise against driving any expensive cars you do not own. You wouldn't want the owner to sue you and take your house or something.

*From this post of yours back in March.

http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/...54&postcount=3

The first link shows you not letting a UPS truck merge for no reason and almsot causing an accident and the second link shows you slamming hard on your brakes for no reason and causing an accident behind you that ended up hitting your car.

Sometimes it works -

the M3 I would term as scary fast!

Have also seen two Veyrons - the original McClaren (it still had the delivery lug nuts on it), arranged a photoshoot for the Reventon,

In a different place saw an Espada, and a Pullman (neither in a museum)

When I did the dealership tour mentioned above, also got to see a BMW850..

PS - I provide some of the content for ///M Cars facebook here in Singapore...

There's a late 60's or early 70's short wheel base Land Rover in the parking lot at work today. No doors or windows, it's a beater for sure.

The first one the UPS truck tries to make a change from the 3rd lane to the 1st all at one time a very short distance before the turn. I wouldn't have been watching that nor expecting it. It clearly drove him into the curb. The UPS driver was in the wrong as he had no right to merge into a lane with traffic without any warning. He didn't let him not merge for no reason, he got cut off.

The second you can't see what was happening in front of him... why do you assume he hit his brakes for no reason. If the car in front of him slammed on the brakes wouldn't you expect him to do the same? Apparently he successfully stopped without hitting the car in front of him, but the car two behind didn't.

It is hard to choose between the McLaren F1, the DB9, the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, the 15 Cadillac XLR's, the 10 Deloreans, the Packard the size and weight of a tank, the original AC Cobra, or the slews of Mustangs, Corvettes, Lotuses, GTO's, etc. Ok, so it was a car show, it was still fun and this one is my favorite because they don't focus on any one type of car so there is something for everyone. Unfortunately the weather was "iffy" so 57 of the entrants didn't show up but there were still about 200 cars there.

If I have to pick one it would be the 1969 Boss Shelby GT 350. The reason is it is the only one there is. It was the car Shelby was working on when the program was discontinued in May of '69. They finished this one and didn't do any of the other 31 they planned to make. A true "One of One."

Extra bonus is that I ran into a good friend who I don't see often and found out he had a '66 427 Corvette convertible he was showing that he is going to let me drive soon.

Yesterday I saw a bumper sticker that I've occasionally (though rarely) seen in the last few years: a blue square with two lateral gold bars, and no words. At the next stop light I asked the driver about it and she said it's for the EU. I tried searching for this sticker but after a few minutes was not able to locate one, but the colors and bars are similar to the Euro symbol seen here:

http://ec.europa.eu/economy_finance/...image10484.jpg

(Except for the lateral bars in her bumper sticker, the bar ends are squared off instead of diagonally cut like in this image.)

I was passed by a beautifully restored jet-black 1948 Cadillac the other day: I drove slowly so I could ogle while I let it pass because it was such a beautiful thing.

(Except for the lateral bars in her bumper sticker, the bar ends are squared off instead of diagonally cut like in this image.)
Comme ça?

I saw a mint, gorgeously glossy blue Dodge Viper this morning whilst dropping the kids off at school. I think it was one of the older ones (late 90s, perhaps) but I couldn't pinpoint which year.

I realized that that tiny car has a larger engine (a LOT larger!) than my minivan.
