Today my eyeballs caught a glimpse of a 1969 Dodge Charger in the obligatory Dukes of Hazzard orange, but no numbers or flag.

I followed a white 458 spider on my way to work a few weeks ago.

There was a period of over a month where I saw a lamborghini every day. I like to walk around Beverly Hills just to see what ridiculous vehicles are driving around. The rarest vehicles in that area are American cars.

Oh! I did see a Veyron on the road a little over a month ago. I also saw a Carrera GT in the canyons driving in the opposite direction... It had the best death wail.

G-wagens are all over the place here. They're the Tahoe of Los Angeles.

I've only seen one two-door model, though:

I saw a perfect Alfa Sprint Zagato negotiating a left across traffic, at a stoplight, in traffic, in the rain, in my little town. I felt blessed.

How about a MINT 1987 Tempo? Not rare in 1988, but by the time 1990 came around.....

I've also seen a Shadow CSX and an amazingly clean mid 80's K car. All this summer/fall

I saw a perfect looking 86 camry hatch with 87k on it. In the junk yard. Some good Samaritan donated it to goodwill, and goodwill sent it directly to the yard to get their easy $300. Sickening.

I see an old lady, like in her upper 80's driving a VW Fox and there's a mint Omni I see all the time.

In reply to Rad_Capz: GUH!?!?

Saw a 458, gt3 rs, and a Gallardo chasing each other down an open stretch of century drive. The deafening roar rumbled my work van, and my nuggets...

Saw a Mosler this weekend dicing it up at Road Atlanta in HPDE-2. This morning saw the remains of a Mercury Topaz that took out a chain link fence and a telephone pole. The Topaz did surprisingly well all things considered but I doubt it will ever be on the road again.

Went to pick my daughter up at school this evening and there was a choir concert going on. I saw a dark gray Viper GTS in the parking lot and it kind of blew my mind. Pretty wild car for my neck of the woods.
I had a couple of people call the V wagon a unicorn at autocross this weekend. I drive the kids to school in it so I'm kind of jaded.

I agree about exotics. Kinda common around the area I commute through in NJ. Ferraris, Lambos, and so on. There's a Maserati Quattroporte I see being daily driven all the time. Somebody in the next office building occasionally drives a Viper GTS. Despite the fact there isn't a Tesla dealer in NJ, I see about one per day on average - my record so far is at least four different cars.

A few years ago I saw a '77 Celica Liftback during my morning commute through NJ. Did a serious double-take on that one. Had California plates, oddly enough.

I was driving to the dentist last year and passed a Noble M400 on the road. I happened to be in my '64 Mini at the time, so it was smiles and thumbs for all.

Today I saw a Mitsubishi Galant vr4 driving in the pouring rain on I-476 in PA.

I saw a Galant VR4 in my driveway this evening.

Then I saw a manual Legacy GT wagon in my garage. I like unicorns.

There is a guy that works across the street from my work that occasionally commutes in a BMW M1. Not the recent M1, the old BMW supercar. I can't say that I've ever seen another on the road.

Not a museum or car show but I'm sure I'll get disqualified anyway.

I walk past:

1917 Crane Simplex model 5 7-pass touring.

1915 Pierce-Arrow 38-C Brougham.

1913 Stoddard-Dayton Limousine. (the only one)

1910 H.A. Moyer runabout(one of six)

1933 Stutz DV32 with a Derham coupe roadster body (one of three)

1930 L-29 Cord cabriolet

1932 Auburn 8-100A boattail speedster

1930 Duesenberg Model J LeGrande dual-cowl phaeton

1935 Duesenberg Model J Weymann torpedo phaeton

Every day at work.

I'm actually starting to get annoyed with that page, it was cool at first but now it's people posting Donks and random cars with them saying "Look at the Bumper Sticker/Badging/License Plate!!".

I think it's taking away from the original concept.

While driving a couple of days ago, a MkI Fiesta. It's been years since I saw one any where else but a race track or autocross. This was in OK condition, I had to wait for a stop light to get a pick, hence from behind and not the side.

I haven't seen a Prowler in years but there's a guy who appears to daily a gold and black one and I see him nearly every day. A coworker has a mint looking Corvair he drives occasionally. My neighbor's high school kid has a stock Civic hatchback and he wants to keep it that way.
