Saw this in a Colorado parking garage. It's a Volvo, but no idea what it is? Thought it was really cool.

Take a look at the numbers on the speedo.

According to Wikipedia, the Volvo PV series started in production in 1938 and the conceptcarz linky notes state the body is based on the PV 830 taxi.

Hence, possibly the reason for the Art Deco numerals on the speedo.

I just love an 80s Mercedes even more if it's clean.

Same C5 I spotted before and it had a proper v8 growl thanks to these.

Man that E-Class merc looks good in red! And those pipes in in the C5 are just embarrasing and ugly, even if it's a Z06.

Belgian plates for employees of EU institurions. They're optional, the EU employess can choose between these and the regular Belgian red on white plates. I'm rather surprised you wouldn't see them more often in the Netherlands.

The ford needs some fatties and open headers with that same color. Faaantastic.:cool:

Mazdas and Porsches are the only cars that make me smile back amongst the smiling cars trend and Peugeot just piss me off for some reason.

Some rare VW products in my town anyways.

Saw this Corvette ZHZ in Scottsdale, AZ while I was in town for the Fiesta Bowl. Crappy shot, because it was surrounded by people....

What are those rims? :no:

Can you get them from the factory or are those just another tacky aftermarket "chrome"-wheels? Anyone?

I totally forgot about this car and had to look it up.

It's the "limited edition" built for Hertz. It looks like the rims are part of the super awesome "upgrade".

The 612 looks really nice from that angle but the face is just underwhelming you know just like a butterface.
