interesting/funny/special cars sightings
Published 22/02/2017 @ 12:51:05, By Reg1992
nice collection of 5-Series.. no.7 & no.11 are members of that series
4 is a Mercedes S-Class
5 is right, it is a 1985+ Camaro
9 i don't know for the GLE part but it is a 1990-1992 740 ( but not Turbo )
10 rare thing, 1st time i see one from the point of view of someone who saw it... wasn't sold in Canada, still wonder why as Qu├ębec is a hatchback-buying province..
15/16 i think they are 1992-1996/1997 ( blue one might be a F-150 )
21 is just like you said, 1991-1992 ( and a Z28 )
22 what are they carrying ? thanks for the pic but snow-less is way more fun to watch than the Sentra.. :grin:
30 the Integra is a 1998-2001 , one of my uncles had one ( a red one ..he also had a 1994 green one )
34 is a 1991-1995 Toyota MR2


#22 - Yeah I couldn't tell if they had simply lowered it in the back (I've seen people do that because they think it's cool :grin: ) or if they had some serious weight back there.

#7 is actually a 7-Series [E23] :ohwell:
#10 it's Corolla FX, DX was a sedan/wagon trim level
#20 is a Buick Century
#26 you have no idea what a rare sight it is to see the original Sephia. The first Kias here have all disappeared. Never see them on eBay or Cars.com or Craigslist.


#10 - I knew it was something-X, I just forgot which one. :grin:
#20 - Oldsmobile and Buick made very similar-looking cars for a few decades that it's hard for me to tell apart the twins (like Century and Ciera)
#26 - Yeah even I had not seen such an old Kia, even more suprising that it was actually running and not billowing smoke out the back. :lol: I did see a mint-condition late-80s Hyundai Sonata sedan in South L.A. a few years ago. It looked like it was fresh off the dealer lot.

As Refuse truck, it's always an MR indeed. Made from 1978 until 2007, here with the 1981+ headlamps. I suspect a late model, due to the grille logo.
_____

For the record, the MC name (used on "non-refuse" trucks) was discontinued in 1987, so all 1988+ trucks with this cab are also MR models.

I don't know if Commander57 does the forum, but Hemmings had a story today of a man who has collected more than 700 cars over the past 50 years, and has hired several auction houses to sell them. He had a penchant for the independent makes. Story here:

Studebakers, Divcos and more, oh my!

Especially the limo. It almost makes me want to forward it to some collectors.

A mouse fell out of this truck (1998 (Nissan Diesel) UD 2600 by CarFax) in front of me at a light:

Last image has cameo appearances by a 1985 Lincoln Town Car, a brand new Buick Envision, and an unmarked white van with Government Department of Homeland Security license plates - I hope Figaro has his papers in order.

seen today but no pic as it was behind me except for a line change ( it was turning right while i was going straight ) . no much luck once it got visible to my camera, was followed by two other cars that quickly blocked any pic possibilities

it was a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire GT convertible, with the top down.... at only 40 F... winter tires and a top down convertible are a weird combination...

It depends on which convertible is concerned :wink:

Today i was in Kaiserslautern where an US Army Depot is situated. Many soldiers live in Kaiserslautern and they drive american cars. Ramstein is also close by.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiserslautern_Military_Community

What i saw:

- Chevrolet Traverse
- US Ford Focus Sedan SES
- Jeep Wrangler
- Nissan Altima
- Chrysler 200 (my favorite) :sol:

I only managed to film two cars with my dashcam because i had a battery charging problem. My charging cable was attached but the camera was not charging.

Second Generation US Ford Focus Sedan SES

(actually i wanted to turn left and i waited deliberately to film this car. But just as it passed by my battery was empty :halalala: )

https://abload.de/img/traverse7mz9e.jpg

Oh and a funny looking pickup on a construction site. I found that picture in a forum.

18) Based on the color and stripes, it looks like a 1975-76 Renegade model:

#9: Another Mercedes-Benz SL.

#17: I am happy that i am in advance to some american guy. :grin: A man from Poland allowed me to sit in a Mercury Mystique (same platform as Ford Contour). I cautiously asked him if i can drive it just a little bit. He denied but at least he drifted in circles with it while i was in it. - Or at least as far as you can "drift" in a FWD.
