Maybe these are normal for Columbia Missouri, where I was taking a break from a road trip, but they seemed like unicorns to me. A street-driven dune buggy, and a slightly worn-out looking first-gen Lightning.



That is hilarious as I was looking at these and thought, I know that Lightning! Welcome to Columbia... last week.

I can't remember the last time I saw one of those cars on the road.

I have no idea what this was, but it was cool:

Looks like a Ranger cab with Jeep stuff grafted onto the front and some variety of 70s flareside truck bed and possibly trailer fenders.

Last night up in Woodstock I saw not one but two Mitsu Delica 4x4s. One on the road (with his high beams on, which was most annoying), and one parked with a For Sale sign on the windshield.

I also saw several septuagenarian hippies and a couple of people protesting something I never heard of, but that's pretty much normal in Woodstock.

Hit the local cruise in last night, and saw something I probably haven't see in a decade.  A Buick Reatta convertible:

44K miles, and the interior looked like new.  Talked to the owner, and the touchscreen still works.  Its was for sale, too.  Would be awesome to roll up to Radwood in this.

I saw 5 of those in a field around Clarkson, Kentucky yesterday. I think that's where most of them are now though.

Hardtops or convertibles?  Either way, that's wild to see that many in one place.  Guess someone is addicted to them.

Saw this Renault trucklet last night on the way home, search engine says its called a "Duster Oroch".  The DA GSR was about 2 weeks ago and looked perfect.

I forgot about this thread. These were both in the same parking lot yesterday.

We're in New Hampshire, visiting Mount Washington on the way home from Maine.

That was yesterday. We went to the mountain today, and saw a definite unicorn, a 1912 Stanley.

The owner drives it about a thousand miles a year. The only modifications from stock are a thermocouple to monitor the temperature, and a set of Harley Davidson disc brakes on the front wheels. 

The brakes were essential, since he drove it to the top of the mountain and back down again.

When the picture was taken, he was running the engine with the rear wheels off ground so he could pump water from the storage tank to the boiler.

Leaving Whole Foods today, spotted a very brand new looking Mercedes-AMG E63 S wagon. I have much want for that station wagon, even if it costs more than my last house.

I saw a 911 Targa yesterday.  Forest green with matching Fuchs.  Not really rare, but not really common these days either.

Lol, a buddy said the same thing!

Its actually a Porsche 959. Pretty cool. Belongs to Ralph Lauren I believe, I hear he has two. 

I could not get any good pictures for obvious reasons smiley
