Yesterday on my way home I saw a '80s Dodge truck with a late model Lightning bed inexpertly installed.  It was (badly) painted white and had brownish-red spots painted on it.

Reminded me of those freckles you see on red and white Irish Setters.

I'll try for a pic next time I see it.

And not quite as rare, but not a very common commuter these days..Lexus SC400

 

 

Comparing it to the Ford next to it, I am always amazed by how much larger cars are today.

My own take - my "full-size" 99 GM 1500 compared to a newer Ford.

Saw a blacked out Rolls Royce Cullinan on the way home today. Didn't manage to get a picture, but I think I'm doing all of you a favor in that. Still odd to drive close to something worth more than my house.

Saw that car not too long ago, I think. It was near that building, on the stretch of I-85 / I-75 just south of where GA400 starts. Really classy-looking vehicle.

A guy I work with rotates between a 68-72 C10, 1st gen Mercury Cougar, and a late sixties/earlier 70's Vista Cruiser wagon. The wagon is cherry, the truck is ratty, the cougar is a nice driver.

I saw a young guy in a 5 door Chev Citation yesterday.

I haven't seen an X car of any brand in 20 years, I'm sure.

The other day I saw an early 90s Plymouth Sundance on my drive home. I recognized the taillights from a distance and kept my speed up enough to verify. I can't remember the last time I saw one.

I was out for a walk while working in Portland, OR a couple years ago and stumbled on TWO Citation X11’s and their owners chatting at a park.  I remarked how it had been many many years since I’d seen an X11.  They both started going on and on about the legendary race history of the Citation X11 and how the engines were made by hand and how Chevy didn’t want anybody to know but the X11 was massively faster than the Corvette.  They were very nice guys but after a few seconds it became clear they were both huge stoners.  The pot stench was incredible.  Not that there’s much wrong with that in my opinion - since they weren’t actually driving.

Not my pic, but I saw one of these the other day. It was kind of a ruby color, mostly there with some clear-coat damage.  Seemed stock, and no oil smoke.  Pretty wild, seemed a survivor.

You'd have to be totally baked to think any X car was fast or fun to drive in anything approaching stock form.

Didn't look like much, but it sounded good.  I was also very intrigued by the thought that someone would put arduino and raspberry pi stickers next to MSD, Edelbrock, and the rest.

 

Wanted to talk to him about it pretty bad.

What's even the point of that?  By the time you need a dually, you're towing something in a 5th-wheel type hitch, and you can't do that with an SUV.

Saw this at my kids school at drop off. If it would have had a big butt, it would have been worth an amazing amount. It does have a 3.8 in it though. 

Also, Derek Hill (son of Phil Hill) is one of the dads at the school. He is really interesting to talk to. Drives Alfas, very cool mellow dude.
