A Prius with no muffler drove by my house this morning.  It was weird to see and hear one of them making a lot of noise.

Love the looks of that hot hatch!

 

Could it be a Pulsar GTI-R with some sort of bodykit?

LOL nevermind my wildazz'd guess, ain't even remotely close after looking again...

...but did find something that might just fit the bill, something I've never even heard of --- Toyota Starlet Glanza V

That's it!! The Toyota  

Yeah, not a Pulsar. Had a neighbor in the early 2000s that had one of those and I would had recognized it.

$10 says the catalytic converter was missing not the muffler.

I saw lots of Americans bringing Dodge Challengers and F150s to Germany, but never saw Chevy Impala.... until now.

And Citroen C3 Pluriel. It's a weird car.

EP92 Starlet, they were available with a turbo powertrain that had lots of potential. Not sold in North America.

I got to drive one of those on BMWs road course at their Spartanburg SC plant.  Holy E36 M3 on a donut.  No SUV should be able to do stuff like that.

Lots of cool cars inside those two trucks, looked like they were swapping cars.

The Ferrari 330 would be my pick, but the Ford GT was a close second.

Pah, not only is the Ford GT way cooler than the 360, although to be fair the 360 is far more affordable given it's lower status, than the Ford GT, but that looks like a Camilo Pardo Signature GT.  For those that don't know, Camilo was the Designer who styled the 05 Ford GT.  Later he 'left' Ford, rumor was it that he was actually fired for posting a vid of himself doing stupid speeds on the freeways around Detroit, although I'm not 100% sure of that.  He was considered a Rock Star Designer, and has a cool gallery in down town Detroit.  I'd love to buy some of his art, and if I had cubic dollars I'd love a Signature GT.

Note. I am mainly joking about the 360, still a fine car.

What is it?  I can't identify it, I'm just seeing a generic midsize SUV and I'm not sure what it is.  Something uber cool or rare I assume?

Saab 9-4X. Very rare rebadged/slightly altered Cadillac SRX.

I met a couple of friends for lunch today and parked next to one of them in a unicorn. Ignore my big white thing in the foreground.

 

 

He actually built this 1UZ-swapped Celica years ago. I then purchased it from him and improved a bunch of things and hooned it for a while, then he eventually ended up with it again. It was good to see it out on the road today.

Super shiny paint and sick blade wheel covers.  When is the last time you saw one.
