Electric car looks like a Polestar and the tan hatch on the back of the truck is maybe a Ford Fiesta?

I had never heard of a polestar before, I think that's it from looking at photos.

I haven't seen a Ford Fiesta in years let alone one so nice looking.  The Coda looked like an EK civic from a distance.  Turns out its built from a Chinese car called the Hafei Saibao, which itself is based off a late 90s Mitsubishi Lancer.  Only 117 were made inbetween 2012-2013.

CTS-V, maybe not a "unicorn", but quite stunning in this color. I'd rock this everyday.

I saw a Plymouth Prowler yesterday. Headed the other way on the parkway, so no pic - sorry.

Reminds me that I saw one just like this also running under its own power a few weeks ago, couldn't get a pic unfortunately.

Here's something I saw outside a race shop a few months ago:

Looked like it was coming from having had a restoration done to it:

Any idea what model and what's up with that roof?

Looks removable to me, like you can remove it and stand in the back to "watch the lions and zebras and orangutans and such..."  :)

That looks like a safari roof. It creates an air gap and their are vents in the main roof.  You could open them to provide airflow, as well the other roof provided an air gap to help keep temps cool.

nice old Rover

This car in it's own right is a unicorn in South Africa. And to se one restored/resto modded, is even more of a unique thing

Known specs: 1972 Ford Fairmont 351 GT (Australian XY chassis) 

Owner mentioned: 17" Foose imported rims

MSD 2910 Atomic EFI Throttle body

351 Cleveland rebuild motor

Metallic gun metal paint

It is two brothers who have rebuilt this car and is taking it across South Africa on road trip/shakedown. If something happens, as it did last night, throwing the alternator belt, they stop in the nearest down and fix the problem then and there. 

According to them, this car, including purchase price is standing at a whopping R1.2mil
