I was pretty amazed when I saw a Velorex on the road and a police BRP Can-Am last week.

Today on campus: the R8 that's always here, an R33 GT-R (!), and a Ghibli. I'm warming to the looks of the two new Maser sedans. Too bad their interiors are crap.

Seems like it's the internet at my school that's blocking me from uploading things.

First things first- Lincoln's SUV looks like a huge hearse to carry 2-3 coffins. Why anyone would hire it for a limousine is beyond me.

Saw this V8 Vantage in Chinatown.

Saw a Buick Roadmaster(?) on the highway. Looks like whoever is driving it is an enthusiast. Kitdy may want it.

And saw the Murano abomination on the highway too.

I used to have a lot of customers tell me the R looked like a hearse. I think the R = MKT + Odyssey + Benz styling cues, where MKT = tall hearse. The MKT takes looking like a hearse to a whole new level.

I really hope some rich dudes from Manhattan decided to slum it at a small Chinatown restaurant, but it's definitely just the driver grabbing food.

That Roadmaster driver is a few decades below the median age of a Roadmaster owner. I guess I am doomed to that future?

I know, they should just scrap it and make the IDX thing already.

And/or a smaller, cheaper and less bulbous Z car.

The Murano CC is dead.

IDx would be great.

Cheaper Z too, but please keep it a six.

Agreed.

Wow, that lived shorter than I expected.

Could it be one with a straight 6 perhaps? Nah, too expensive for a dedicated platform, much too much wishful thinking.

Wouldn't it be great to have 2 straight 6 coupes come out of Japan again?

Straight six would be too good actually.

However, the Z does not have a dedicated platform, rather it sits on a shortened Skyline one (that is why it is slightly overweight).

IDx would have to have a dedicated one though, and that's what probably makes Nissan not greenlight it. Unless they can strike a deal with some other manufacturer.

If they want to debiggen their sports coupe, they could always use a turbo four. Maybe sticking with the alpha-numerical naming. Something like.. oh I don't know.. 200SX? If they want something like 'Fairlady' they could give her a name.. Simone.. Serena.. oh, Silvia! Perfect.

Driving behind a white '75 Alpine A110 today. Beautiful sound! A pleasure for my eardrums

I might have posted this some time ago, but what the heck, I'll post it again.

Rover 3500! Best of British steel... and Lucas Electrics?

The badge is really cool at least. I'm not sure what the owner did to it, my dad didn't really touch the car at all, it came in running condition. I guess he drove it back home or left it at the shop for some storage time.

The interior was immaculate. I had no interior shots because my camera sucked.

My first car was one of them! It was great!

.. when it worked!

Was a series 2 3500SE with the fuel injected lump and 3-sp slushbox (suuuuuuuper slushy). It'd had a hard few years before I inherited it, and it really showed. Something small yet significant went wrong with it every month before I got tired of it and we got rid of it. Was replaced with an E30 323i, so.. better deal really. I still kinda miss it though, it was a lovely relaxed beastie. A great design, middling execution, poorly constructed.

Haha, I'm glad I jogged some wonderful (?) memories for you.
