Mine was a 1963 (according to the antique plates and Kennedy/Johnson bumper sticker) Studebaker Avanti, light-blue. It really stands on out a city street full of Civics and Camrys. Not in mint condition, clearly it was driven fairly regularly and had a backseat full of junk.
A police car - unusual because it was a Citroen. I can’t figure out why on earth they’ve started using them. Most of their choices are logical - Ford Focuses for around town, logical for the same reason as anybody gets a Focus, Volvos for highway patrols so they can cram in a large amount of equipment, Jags for unmarked cars that may be involved in high-speed work, and Land Rovers.
Most days, it’s our Aztek. It’s a metallic blue; I’ve only seen one other blue Aztek in the Omaha area.Lots of the Aztek’s quieter cousin, the Buick Rendezvous, in that color, but only one other Aztek I know of.
That one has the same wheels as ours, is obviously parked in an area with mulberry trees like ours (the reddish bird crap stains practically matched the ones I’m contantly fighting on ours),and since both my wife and I were in the Ranger at when we first spotted it, we initially thought that someone might have stolen ours.
We live near an old white wooden church popular for weddings and we’ve seen this wacky-looking “super-long Excalibur”-type limo several times (wish I had a picture). On close inspection, this is obviously a stretch of a pre-1991 Lincoln Town Car wrapped in a bunch of outrageous fiberglass fenders, fake sidepipes and sidemount spares, '30s Mercedes-like grille and outsized antique-look headlamps.
All-in-all still less ridiculous than the more-common stretched Hummers and Excursions.
Nothing today. I saw a brand spankin’ new Rolls Royce going down the 10 on friday though. Also on the same trip a guy was hauling a very unusual-looking motorcycle in the bed of his truck. I have no idea what it was but I liked it, except for the fact that it was ORANGE!!! Only orange-r than that.
I saw a car, I suppose it was a car, this morning. It looked like the nose of an airplane, flying, er… driving south on Highway 19 in Hudson, Florida. It definitely had one wheel in front and 2 in the rear and wings. Also a pointy nose. It was tiny.
I know I saw it, but it was so weird. It didn’t look very safe at all. Too bad I was driving north and only had it in my field of vision for about 5 seconds.
It’s an unusual car in that you’d think there would not be very many on the road. I see three regularly in my neighbourhood. A silver one is parked daily in the garage at the office building where I work.
My housemate’s laser blue Lotus Elise is fairly unusual. The color in particular is uncommon, since it is not listed as an option at any of the dealerships here in the US. You have to know about it to ask for it.
He gets a lot of different reactions from people when they see the car. Kids who play a lot of video games are usually impressed and know all of its stats. Most people have never heard of them though. A week ago, a guy in the parking lot at the movies asked my housemate if he had built it himself, from a kit . He also gets asked “Who builds a Lotus?” a lot. Lotus builds a Lotus, silly!
