Stopping by a Sams Club, a local 'warehouse/club' type store...

On dealer agent tags. Moments later a man in that dealer's logoed garments came out of the store with a shopping cart full of meat, I presume for a BBQ. :D

Possible 6.2L swapped Yukon:

I've been pondering whether to put this here or in the green hue of awesomeness thread, but I don't feel like bumping a thread that nobody posted in for over a year. Anyway, it's a car I spotted in my neighbourhood.

3555264


A green Merc A-class. I'm usually not a fan of green cars, less so of modern cars such as the A-Class, but this combo made my day.

If it'd be more suitable in the green hue of awesomeness thread, mods, feel free to move it.

Been seeing a bunch of GLAs in that color around here. Weight because I've never seen it on the online configurator, but its clearly not a personalized color judging by the sheer amount of them running around.

These turned up at the last group meal of the recent Dallas minimeet:

2019 Honda Clarity PHEV:

Rolled past an area Euro car service and sales specialist - outside was a Merc 280SE and a good condition first-gen Maxima. (Clickable video)

IMG_0742

This was outside when we went to pick up Scarface88's GTO - a 1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S, manual, on handicapped plates. With the stupid robowing replaced by something much better looking.

On paper, and maybe even in a photo, it seems awful, but you just have to see the car to appreciate the colour. Besides, that generation of A-class was the most handsome one in a conventional sense. (Even if I prefer the OG one design-wise, which I know was factually a piece of crap, especially when it comes to early SWB models.) I do get why it wasn't sold in the NA, though.

Except we did get it. It was just called the Infiniti Q30 and it is garbage (that is going to be taken out back and shot without replacement this year). We also got the other platform mates, the CLA and GLA - they are also garbage. The whole platform is garbage as far as I can tell.

The color is fine. The car is not.

First supercar of the season. Making me look like a bitch with my still stored Mustang.

Someone put a camper between a pickup :lmao:
Love it, I suppose you have to do something with the part you removed to fit the camper body. :-D

As for Swissland, am I right in thinking that you shouldn't part on the yellow lines as in many other countries? Jag looks nice but I could live without the V12, give me a 6 banger any day.

Okay, this time something more substantial:

3555296


Excuse the crappy photo (it was taken inside a moving tram), but this car, even if beaten down a bit which you probably can't see on the photo, seems to be the only original-condition 200SX RS13 in Zagreb. I've seen this car before, and there was another seemingly all-original-condition RS13 200SX in the ads a few years ago, but I never saw that one in person. I've spotted a few other 200SX RS13 and one or two S14's in Zagreb, but they were all modified. (I might've spotted an unmodified S14 once now that I think of it, but I can't remember when nor where.) So yeah, this is pretty rare.
