This old guy is my hero. 6am, I5 traffic just putting along. My lane was travelling a good 15mph faster than his so I couldn't get better pictures but I've always wanted to see a lowered manx and this is like a 70s shaggin wagon van-esque build of one. So cool.

Looks like the Funky Futura from Ian Roussel of Full Custom Garage. Nice to see that it's actually driven. Very cool!

Technically we got the Yaris in the US, but not this one.  Likely a Canadian import, now with Pennsylvania plates.

Pretty sure they sold this as the Echo hatchback in Canada, pre-Yaris.

I can't remember if I saw these back in their time. An EJ Civic NGV conversion. Looks like it's seen some stuff over 23+ years

NGV?

I finally get to post a picture on this subject! I have not seen a Datsun Roadster in real life like this since I was 12-14 years old.  This is not the best picture of it.

Was not able to get a pick but I saw a white Alfa 4C and a Fisker Karma, or what ever the new company is called.

I love the sweep in the doors of the karma. Makes it look low and lean to me.

Either way, not legal to import if there was no US version of the car...

I just spotted a freakin green MG RV8 driving though Oak Park on my way home from making groceries. Talk about your deep cuts. I really wish I'd caught a photo.  

A year later, almost to the day, a green RV8 in Oak Park on BaT. I wish I had room for it.

I'm not a vw guy by any means, but cool is cool. Evidently super super rare. I've seen some cool things at recent shows/cruises, but that feels like cheating.
